Jodie Foster’s interview from when she was 17 years old went viral a few years ago. During the interview, the journalist inquires about the actress’s preferences in males. “What type of guys do you prefer?” she inquires. The young actress maintains her cool and avoids answering the question. Her face expression, on the other hand, has been discussed for years.
The actress chose a policy of keeping her personal life private. She avoided queries about her romantic life and kept her personal life out of the news. This was a frequent approach used by LGBTQ artists who were afraid of coming out for fear of jeopardizing their professions.
Several tabloids speculated about her sexuality in the 1990s, questioning if the Silence of the Lambs actress was a lesbian. She made no remarks about these allegations and continued to live her life secretly, as she always did. She gave birth to her oldest son in 1998, and three years later, she gave birth to her second son.
It was 35 years after her 17-year-old interview that she was asked what sort of guys she loved. She received an award in 2013 for her services to the film business.
It was 2013, the business had evolved, and she was weary of concealing her true feelings.
She claimed that, although she is presently unmarried, she lived with producer Cydney Bernard from 1993 until 2008. She also shared her two boys with her. Bernard was her closest friend, she remarked, and she praised her for the family the two of them had created. Her sons Kit and Charlie were not startled among the gathering. And the rest in the audience shed tears, apparently struck by the actress’ candour.
She revealed her present love, Alexandra Hedison, the same year. Her companion Hedison was an actress who appeared on television in the late 1990s but quit because she didn’t think it was for her. She then switched to photography.
Hedison is a star in her own right; she is active in home design circles and has had her work shown in several exhibitions. She dated Ellen DeGeneres from 2000 until 2004.
Hedison and Foster kept their feelings for one another hidden. They kept their marriage a secret from everyone. They secretly married in 2014 and have been together ever since.
Despite the fact that they no longer disguise their marriage, they seldom appear in public together, preferring to maintain a low profile. Their most recent public appearance was at the Cannes Film Festival in 2021. In front of the cameras, the ladies held hands and kissed. Foster received another Golden Globe for her role in The Mauritanian the following year.
This time, she delivered her acceptance speech by video from home. Her wife sat next to her on the sofa. She kissed her loving wife goodbye at the conclusion of her speech.
