Quintessential Hollywood power lesbian Jodie Foster is sporting a stunning post-marital glow this week, as E! has confirmed that she tied the knot with girlfriend Alexandra Hedison in a private ceremony last weekend.
The two were rumored to be dating as early as last summer, when photos of their presumed courtship sparked rumors online. They were seen together on the town a number of times before a source confirmed “they’re totally in love” last September.
Hedison, a professional photographer by trade, previously spent three years with Ellen Degeneres before splitting in 2004 when Ellen’s current wife, Portia de Rossi, came into the picture.
Though Foster’s sexuality was one of Hollywood’s worst kept secrets for decades, she formally came out in an acceptance speech at the 2013 Golden Globes, during which she claimed to be single at the time. “I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age,” she said, and cited her need for privacy as the reason she left her sexually unaddressed for so long.
That probably also explains why her publicist declined to confirm the wedding news.
Either way, congratulations to the happy couple!
