Jodie Foster is a married woman now! The 51-year-old actress and film director has tied the knot with her girlfriend, Alexandra Hedison.
According to E! News, Foster’s representative confirmed that the two married at an “undisclosed location.” Speculation of Foster’s wedding began to surface after several media outlets reported the news last weekend.
The news comes just 15 months after Foster spoke openly about her sexuality for the first time. At the 2013 Golden Globes, Foster definitely had a lot to say when she took the stage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. Her acceptance speech was a metaphorical reference about the award and her sexual orientation.
“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,” Jodie said at the time.
“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 quipped. “I have given everything up there since the time that I was 3 years old — that’s reality show enough, don’t you think?”
The famed Silence of the Lambs actress ended her speech by expressing her gratitude toward her family, professional staff and ex-partner Cydney Bernard, whom she has two children with.
“[Thank you] to my heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life, my confessor, ski buddy… most beloved BFF of 20 years, Cydney Bernard,” she said. “Thank you, Cyd. I am so proud of our modern family.”
Foster and Hedison began dating sometime last summer.
