It's hardly a secret in Hollywood that Jodie Foster is gay. Everybody with an interest in her private life whether prurient or more personal has known it for at least as long as she has been an Oscar-winning actress, which is pushing 20 years by now. She won an Academy Award for her role as a rape victim in 's The Accused, and again three years later for her indelible performance as Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs. An equally open secret is that she is one of the Hollywood few who is actually in a stable long-term relationship.
There is, however, a typical Foster expression. To come through childhood megastardom unscathed and to keep going after a man tries to assassinate the president because, he says, he was trying to impress you. To then determinedly make the shift into adult roles by taking on characters others advise you not to because they are deemed too risky, including that of a brutally raped woman in The Accused and Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs, both of which won Foster Oscars. Through all this, Foster stayed silent during the decades of speculation about her sexuality, only to come out at 51 exactly as she wanted, in a speech at the Golden Globes in which she confirmed she was gay and laughed at the idea she owed it to the public to come out to them. No one can push Foster off the path she has chosen.
