Jodie Foster made quite an impression at the Golden Globes last night, as the actress had one the most awkward acceptance speeches. The Silence of the Lambs actress was awarded the Cecile B. DeMille Award for outstanding contribution to entertainment, and she accidentally or intentionally came out during the speech. “I guess I have a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never been able to air in public that I’m a little nervous about. But maybe not as nervous as my publicist. So I’m just going to put it out there, loud and proud. I’m going to need your support on this. I am… single,” Foster said. The 50 year old actress continued: “I already did my coming out a thousand years ago, in the Stone Age. Those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to friends and family and co-workers then gradually to everyone that knew her, everyone she actually met. But now apparently I’m told that every celebrity is to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show.” The actress finished her speech giving thanks: “There’s no way I could ever stand here without acknowledging one of the deepest loves of my life. My heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life, my confessor, ski buddy, consiglieri, most beloved BFF of 20 years, Cydney Bernard.” Some called her discourse a “rant”, but others felt inspired and even shed some tears during the speech.
