Jodie Foster Marries Girlfriend Alexandra Hedison, Remains Extremely Private

jodi-foster-600Quintessential 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!

    Oh, Jodie, you went and married a star-fucker. I saw her at an Ellen Degeneres show years ago (when they were dating). She was walking up and down the aisles trying to get noticed. Then I saw her berate some poor girl at a VIP table demanding she have better seats at a sold out performance of Al Pacino’s play “Salome”. She was absolutely rude and obnoxious. Oh well, she’s hit the ultimate now. Good luck, Jodie.

    She is the smartest actor we have ever had and I’ve not seen one bad film she was in. She can do it all and looks just as lovely in her 50s as she did in her 20s. I never miss a Foster film. There are only a handful of actors that I think are really talented and she is number one. I never mind paying to see her movies but I don’t write as a fan to anyone since I doubt most even get fan mail and many probably don’t want it these days with all the crazy people out there.

    Congrats to Jodie and Alexandra! Be happy and live life.

    Congratulations to the couple.

    I have to lob one bit of snark though. How nice that while she was busy defending Mel Gibson and not participating at all in the gay rights or Prop 8 fight that she is now able to take advantage of the laws that all of those other people fought for.

    All of you closeted, or self hating, or GOP defenders out there guess what, people are fighting for your rights too even as you stay silent or work against them.

  • Blackceo

    Love Jodie. Congrats to them both!!

    So nice she gets to reep the benifits of everyone else’s “public” long hard battle. While she was busy being “private” and defending Mel Gibson, everyone else was putting their careers and private life on the line. Shut up and go away. Blech.

    @richybruce: Exactly. I agree 100%

  • GeriHew

    @richybruce: I don’t agree.

    While Foster didn’t proclaim her lesbianism from the rooftops she didn’t exactly hide it either. It’s been pretty obvious that she must be gay or possibly bisexual for well over 20 years.
