We never saw this coming. In fact, most people have zero gaydar and argued with me constantly that Jodie Foster wasn't a lesbian. F*ck. Like there's something wrong with being a lesbian. Woman on woman action is hot. Why be so afraid to tantalize your fans with what goes on behind your closed doors?
But before Jodie really got a chance to officially out herself, it appears that her long-time relationship with producer Cydney Bernard has come to a halt. Jodie hinted at their supposed 14 year long union back in December, saying "My beautiful Cydney, who sticks by me through all the rotten and the bliss," when accepting an award for her achievement in film.
Foster's two young sons, Charlie (9) and Kit (6), were carried to term by Foster but she refused to identify their father, leading people to question her orientation for a short while. Rumours died down, fluffed up, and so forth, but if the two (who share parental custody of the boys) split up, the rumours most likely are going to be put to a messy, legal reality. I sincerely wish them both the best of luck.
