Jodie Foster moves the Golden Globes audience to tears as she comes out as gay in impassioned speech


Talk of the night: Jodie Foster accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement

Jodie Foster was the talk of the Golden Globes after an emotional - and at times, rambling - speech while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.
The usually fiercely private actress, 50, surprised the audience as she touched on her sexuality, her rarely-seen sons, Charles, 14, and Kit, 12, and her ailing mother, who suffers from dementia.

'Loud and proud': The fiercely pirvate 50-year-old surprised the audience as she raised her sexuality

'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,' Miss Foster said with a smile.
'[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.'

She paused and asked the crowd for support before finally saying: 'I am single.'
She received a boost from her close friend Mel Gibson, who offered a wolf-whistle from her table in the audience.
She continued: 'This is not going to be a big coming out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the stone age – in those very quaint days when a fragile girl would open up to trusted friends and family and coworkers and then gradually proudly to everyone who knew her.
'But now apparently I'm told that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show.'

She thanked her 'heroic co-parent, my ex partner in love, but righteous soul sister in life. My confessor... most beloved BFF of 20 years, Cydney Bernard.
'Thank you, Cyd. I am so proud of our modern family, our amazing sons, Charlie and Kit who are my reason to breathe and to evolve. ... Boys, in case you didn't know it, this song, like all of this, this song is for you.'
Her sons smiled proudly as they watched from the audience.

In a moment that moved most in the audience to tears, she paid tribute to her 84-year-old mother, Evelyn 'Brandy' Almond, who suffers from dementia.
She said: '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.'

Fighting back tears, she added: 'You're a great mom. Please take that with you when you're finally okay to go.'
She appeared to hint at retirement at the close of her speech, saying: 'This feels like the end of one era and the beginning of something else – scary and exciting.'
Backstage, the star denied she was stepping away from the public eye, adding: 'Oh no, I could never stop acting. You'd have to drive me behind a team of horses.'
