Jodie Foster Gay? With Ex-Lover Cydney Bernard in PHOTO, Seen Hugging Partner Mentioned in Golden Globes 2013 Speech [VIDEO]
wJodie Foster was seen hugging her ex-partner, Cydney Bernard, who she referred to in her coming out speech at the 2013 Golden Globes, on Wednesday.
Jodie Foster was seen hugging her ex-partner Cydney Bernard on Wednesday, the same woman whom she referred to in her rumored coming out speech at the 2013 Golden Globes.
The former couple was seen in in an embrace outside of Starbucks in Bel Air on Wednesday. They were both dressed casually - Foster, 50, was wearing a grey-hooded sweatshirt with grey pants while Bernard was wearing a jacket and jeans.
Foster and Bernard co-parent their two sons, Charles and Kit. The actress called Bernard her "heroic co-parent" and her "ex-partner in love, but righteous soul sister in life" in the acceptance speech she delivered at the Golden Globes earlier this year.
On Jan. 13, when Foster accepted the Cecile B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, she hinted at her sexuality and rumors of her being gay.
"I have a sudden urge to say something i've never really been able to say in public," Foster said as she held her award. "A declaration that I'm a little nervous about, but, you know, loud and proud."
"I am . . . single!" she added, as the crowd laughed. "Yes I am, I'm kidding. I'm not really kidding, but kind of."
"I hope you're not disappointed that I didn't do my big coming out speech tonight, I already did my coming out a thousand years ago back in the stone age, in those quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family . . . Now I'm told every celebrity is expected [to share] the details of their private life with a reality show."
Foster ended off by saying she values "privacy against everything else."
