Go Jodie! Bout’ time, sister girl! Jodie Foster received an award at the Hollywood Reporter Power 100 breakfast yesterday morning. And in her acceptance speech, she thanked her alleged longtime life partner Cydney Bernard. Jodie described Bernard as “my beautiful Cydney who sticks with me through all the rotten and the bliss”. Awww. That’s good. Why does this stuff still matter anymore? Stay quiet if ya want, that’s your choice and yeah, it can be scary. But people are always gonna say stuff and speculate and whatever. It’s just human nature. And if hot people like Jodie have the stones to be all “whatever, I’m gay” about it, it just makes it more inconsequential and boring to be out about your same sex lovin’. No, that isn’t a soapbox under my feet! Shut up! I wear lifts! I’m short, ok? Jodie is said to have met Cydney on the set of “Sommersby” in 1993. Which makes sense because we were supposed to believe her and Richard Gere had some sort of connection, and the only one I could see was that maybe they shared corn husking tips at one time. This is the latest in a string of little things that indicate Jodie might be getting a little louder and prouder about her situation. In September, Jodie acknowledge that a ring she wore as an “eternity ring” that she never took off but wouldn’t comment further on it. In the same month, she mentioned “her partner” in an interview with the Denver Post. On a sad note, Jodie has been reported to take Bernard with her to events and premieres outside the U.S. but never here. Then again, maybe Cydney was acting up and Jodie just didn’t want to deal with her shit that night. Trust me straights, it happens with the gays, too.
