Silence of the Lambs actress Jodie Foster confirmed long standing speculation that she was gay during her acceptance speech at The Golden Globes.
Foster took the stage to accept the Lifetime Achievement award, Reuters reports, where she discussed the speculations surrounding her sexuality. “Seriously, I hope that you're not disappointed that there won't be a big-coming-out speech tonight, because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age,” she exclaimed to the star-studded audience.
"But now apparently, I'm told that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference ... that's just not me," she continued.
Foster was joined at the awards with her ex-partner Cydney Bernard, whom she thanked, and two adopted sons.
“Thank you Cyd, I am so proud of our modern family, our amazing sons."
According to Us Weekly , Foster also put to bed rumors that she was retiring. "I could never stop acting. You'd have to drag me behind, like, a team of horses. No, I'm not retiring from acting,” she explains, adding, “And, you know, I'd like to be directing tomorrow . . . I'm actually more into it than I have ever been."
Following her role in 2011's Carnage, Foster will appear in this year’s Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium starring opposite Matt Damon.
