Jodie Foster secretly marries girlfriend Alexandra Hedison
Surprise! Jodie Foster is a married woman. The Oscar winner and her girlfriend, photographer/actress Alexandra Hedison, tied the knot in a quiet ceremony over the weekend, E! Online reports.
The couple had been dating for almost a year, and beyond that we have zero details because the Silence of the Lambs star is notoriously super-duper private.
At the 2013 Golden Globes, Foster accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award and refused to give a “big coming out speech” (which is so en vogue), saying, “I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age. If you had been a public figure from the time that you were a toddler, if you had to fight for a life that felt real and honest and normal against all odds, then maybe then you too might value privacy above all else.”
In that speech the Elysium actress thanked her ex-partner of 20 years, Cydney Bernard, with whom she has two sons, Charles and Kit. Oh, and fun fact: Hedison, who played Dylan Moreland on The L Word, dated Ellen DeGeneres for a few years back in the early 2000s.
