Two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster and her longtime girlfriend Alexandra Hedison got married this past weekend.
The news was first reported by E! News. A rep for the actress confirmed the news to the site and TMZ, but offered no further details.
Foster and Hedison have been dating for about a year. They were photographed together last summer at a Fox Studios seminar on technology in Los Angeles and then at dinner a few days later. They were also spotted at the opening of Alan Cumming’s Macbeth production in New York.
Hedison, who appeared on Showtime’s The L Word, dated Ellen DeGeneres for three years until 2004. Foster previously dated Cydney Bernard, who she thanked in her now famous Golden Globes speech in January 2013. While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement award, Foster acknowledged her sexuality for the first time in public.
Bernard and Foster dated for 20 years and split in 2008. They share two sons, Charles and Kit.
The Silence of the Lambs actress recently appeared in Elysium alongside Matt Damon.
