Jodie Foster now has a new title to add to her resume … a bride!
Foster’s rep Jennifer Allen confirmed that she, and her girlfriend for over a year Alexandra Hedison, married over the weekend.
The news of Foster’s marriage comes 15-months after publicly coming out about her sexuality. During the 2013 Golden Globes, while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, Foster addressed what so many already knew … that she is a lesbian.
“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 — in those very quaint days where a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family and co-workers and then gradually, proudly, to everyone who knew her, who she actually met,” Foster said.
“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 primetime reality show… I am not Honey Boo Boo,” she said. “I have given everything up there since the time that I was 3 years old — that’s reality show enough, don’t you think?”
Hedison previously dated comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, but they later split, after three years, in 2004. Foster was in a relationship with Cydney Bernard for 20 years before calling in quits in 2008. They currently co-parent their two sons Charles and Kit.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
