Jodie Foster brings crowd to tears as she more or less comes out again
Posted by Kevin Hunter
While being honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress, 50, delivered a powerful speech where she addressed everything from her sexuality to her relationship with her mother.“While I’m here being all confessional, I guess I just have just a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never really been able to air in public,” a smiling Foster said. “[It’s] 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 love you, I love you, I love you and I hope if I say this three times, it will magically and perfectly enter into your soul, fill you with grace and the joy of knowing that you did good in this life,” she said on stage. “You’re a great mom. Please take that with you when you’re finally okay to go.”
She remarked, “This feels like the end of one era and the beginning of something else – scary and exciting” – Foster told reporters backstage: “I could never stop acting. You’d have to drag me behind a team of horses.”
