Last night Jodie Foster was being honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award. As she gave her speech she said she said, quote,  “I guess I just have just a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never really been able to air in public”. She then went into this speech.

She spoke very candidly and even joked that her publicist was getting “nervous”. Most viewing at home and I am sure in the audience thought she would declare what most have speculated for years that Jodie Foster is a lesbian. However she announced:

Its a declaration that I’m a little nervous about . . . but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now.  I’m just going to put it out there . . . loud and proud . . . I am single.

For those who expected

This is not going to be a big coming out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the stone age . . .

Jodie remembered the days of privacy and longed for when people had some.

 In those very quaint days when a fragile girl would open up to trusted friends and family and coworkers and then gradually proudly to everyone who knew her . . . 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.

Seriously, if you had been a public figure from the time that you were a toddler, if you’d had to fight for a life that felt real and honest and normal against all odds, then maybe then you too would value privacy against all else.  Privacy.

If you missed it here is the video.
