I took a look at reliable sources comments on Foster's Golden Globes speech. Some do plainly identify her as gay, but some hedge in some way, or skirt around the issue. Foster publicly acknowledged, kind of, that she is, as anyone who cared already assumed, gay. The year-old actress, who has long refused to discuss her private life, appeared to acknowledge publicly for the first time that she is a lesbian. Or not.
Advocates praised Jodie Foster's coming out on the televised stage of the Golden Globe Awards last night, but some said she had done little over the years to set an example for others who are LGBT and struggling. This woman who obviously has been afraid to come out in the public sphere has been out in her private life for decades. Some said her long-awaited coming out may have underscored the generation gap in the LGBT world.
