Jodie Foster's coming out speech at the Golden Globes



Oh God she's so frickin classy, you could say she's the anti-Kardashian Moving speech

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit.

She's had a long, crazy career. A very successful one.

Re: Jodie Foster's coming out speech at the Golden Globes

One of my favourite screen actors EVER. Silence of the Lambs is my 2nd favourite film after La Reine Margot, and Jodie gave the best performance I have ever seen in my opinion.

But Jodie came out several years ago when she introduced and thanked Sydney (sp?) at a premiere in I think it was Germany? So it isn't really news, but bravo to her for her very dignified and lustrous career - and proving with all her box office hits that no one really cares about sexuality when you have that much talent.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

Re: Jodie Foster's coming out speech at the Golden Globes

Her speech was a bit awkward (took TOO long to get to the point). Well at least she did it at the end.

Re: Jodie Foster's coming out speech at the Golden Globes

Agreed. I thought that speech was going to end at least 3 times but it just kept on going. There were some good bits though.

I think we pretty much knew all along. But I thought it was a beautiful speech. She is such a classy woman.

Re: Jodie Foster's coming out speech at the Golden Globes

Where is the part where she said "I am gay"?

Also, her dress was very distracting. The straps reminded me of the seaweed you use to wrap sushi. Not a fan.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Jodie Foster's coming out speech at the Golden Globes

Oh I liked it, especially because it really suits her because of the blue make-up she was wearing that goes along with the color of her eyes.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit.

Re: Jodie Foster's coming out speech at the Golden Globes

^I didn't know you were gay, are you?

Anyway, I thought it was an awful rambling speech. "Oh, so I'm coming out", "but only sort of", "well, you guys know anyway", "or at least, the people who should know really know", "privacy is really important", "life as a celebrity is tough", blah blah blah

I was like, just do it already or not at all.

^^

Don't hate, it was obviously a hard thing to do, the rambling is understandable.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."
