Did Jodie Foster come out?
 
Errr not?

Jodie Foster: She's come out as rather confused - Telegraph

dramaqueen04 01-20-2013 11:10 AM

Just like Tom Cruise never will.
Deny, deny, deny.
I mean, who really cares?

LoloDSM 01-20-2013 01:36 PM

She's been out for several years: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...-14-years.html

The New Black 01-20-2013 01:45 PM

Then what was the other article talking about? It's been an open secret for years but I never knew she acknowledged it all.

dramaqueen04 01-20-2013 01:48 PM

Isn't open secret an oxymoron?
That's like Tom Cruise and his beards.

She came out a long time ago, to her family, friends and co workers, etc. She gave a fantastic speech (at the globes) about the lack of privacy now and how the public now expects a press conference to be given on your personal and private life.

*and she also did a mini side rant about needing a reality tv show and perfume now, aka sucking all the talent, art, and privacy out of her 47 year career.

Totally different. Tom Cruise is denying and actively saying he is straight, marrying women, etc.

Jodie Foster is out with her family and friends, and was openly in a relationship with a woman, and openly chose to raise children with a woman partner. She simply has not said publicly "I am gay". And why should she have to? She is openly living her life. Not hiding, not denying. It doesn't need an announcement to the world any more than a woman married to a man with children by that man needs to cone out and publicly announce that she is straight.

Fifi.G 01-20-2013 02:34 PM

^ I could not agree with your 2nd paragraph more.

She has been openly living her life and felt no need to out right say anything other than to those she knows, years ago.

I did love it when she said she had an announcement to make, in her speech, and said "I'm single!" Haha.

dramaqueen04 01-20-2013 02:56 PM

Once, again, who cares?
Good for her.
I don't think what Tom Cruise is doing is any different.
Neither one has made that announcement.
So what?

Um, false. This is nothing like Tom Cruise.

And if you don't care, why bother commenting? If it was to be obnoxious, then mission accomplished!

Whoops, should I have written that last part in code?

The New Black 01-20-2013 07:46 PM

I gotta agree its nothing like Tom Cruise.

He denies being gay.

Yeah, all this is based on the assumption that he's gay, and publicly acting and declaring he's straight. Basically, living a lie. If he is gay, that's what Tom Cruise is doing. Totally different than the way Jodi Foster is living her life. She's totally out and living her life as who she is. She simply hasn't made a big public statement about it.

spiderlashes5000 01-22-2013 10:04 AM

I thought everyone knew she was gay.

But in the speech JF was thanking her ex-partner for being a friend and co-parent? (And maybe announcing that she was back on the market? LOL)

The New Black 01-22-2013 10:34 AM

Honestly, I assumed she was gay a long time ago. But I didn't know she ever said anything about it.

thelio 01-22-2013 10:54 AM

my mom said she new she was gay when she was in taxi driver.

I think jodie was always out to those important to her. You she was getting it on with is no ones business but her own. She didnt have to tell me, becuse she doesnt know me.

For her (or any celebrity) to have to make an annoucement of their sexual orientation, is the same as me (or any unfamous person) going up to strangers and telling them i'm straight (or gay).

SpiralSpunk 01-22-2013 06:49 PM

I personally feel it's wrong to assert that someone is gay when they assert that they aren't (Tom Cruise). What if someone did that to a known gay person? It's their sexuality so I take their word for it since it's not much of my business anyway.

Eilonwy 01-23-2013 12:16 AM

If someone stalks you and shoots the president "for" you, you're probably gonna be guarded about your personal life.

KurlyKae 01-23-2013 02:00 AM

I'm glad that by saying nothing, really, Jodie Foster said a whole lot.
If we truly want equality, we need to reach the point where no one ever feels the need to make an announcement about anything so personal.
Then, we will know that as a culture, we have finally evolved.
