Looks like they're definitely dating: Jodie Foster and rumored girlfriend Alexandra Hedison grabbed breakfast together at Charlie's Pantry in Beverly Hills Sunday. The outing makes the first public appearance since reports surfaced last week that the Oscar-winning actress, 50, was "totally in love" with Hedison, a photographer and former "The L Word" actress. Hedison has previously been linked to Ellen DeGeneres.
Here's the beauty of it: There was nothing unusual about what she said. On the same night, at the same event, Adele, in her acceptance speech for the award for Best Original Song, referred to her special someone and their child. Jodie Foster did the very same thing!
Coming out is a personal journey that is unique to the individual. In fact, why does anyone really need to come out publicly at all? Why is it anyone's business but one's own? It has taken me years to realize that it is not up to me to tell someone how and when to come out.
I think it's the obligation of gay people to say that whether Manti's actions were the result of extreme sexual naiveté or an attempt to mask his lack of pro athlete hyper-heterosexual, these are patterns that are common in our community.
Jodie Foster's words really affected this over-40 actor who has felt the sting of not being the actor industry folks cast in roles that my straight counterparts get to play all the time. She made me feel less alone as an Out and not-so-young-anymore performer.
I've never been Jodie Foster. I can't say what she should have done in her circumstances -- I've never been there, nor have any of her critics. They never experienced the life she lived. What audacity to lecture her, for not living their life!
