Jodie Foster delivered what she referred to as her "coming out speech" at the Golden Globes 2013 Sunday night for the first time in her career.

Foster, who had never addressed her sexuality in public, told her fellow Hollywood stars that at this point in her career she was feeling the "urge to say something." She delivered the speech after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille honor for lifetime achievement.

"So while I'm here being all confessional, I just have a sudden urge to say something that I've never really been able to air in public, a declaration that I'm a little nervous about, but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now-hi, Jennifer-but, uh, you know, I'm just going to put it out there, right, loud and proud, so I'm going to need your support on this. I am, uh...single," she said, to laughs from the audience.

She continued: "I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the Stone Age, in those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends, and family, co-workers, and then gradually, proudly, to everyone who knew her, to everyone she actually met. But now apparently I'm told that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance, and a prime-time reality show. You guys might be surprised, but I am not Honey Boo Boo Child. No, I'm sorry, that's just not me.

"There is no way I could ever stand here without acknowledging one of the deepest loves of my life, my heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love, but righteous soul sister in life, my confessor, ski-buddy, consigliore, most beloved BFF for 20 years, Cydney Bernard," Foster said, adding:

"Thank you, Cyd. I am so proud of our modern family, our amazing sons Charlie and Kit, who are my reason to breathe and to evolve, my blood and soul."
