Jodie Foster, too, officially revealed her sexual orientation this week during her lifetime achievement award speech at Sunday’s Golden Globe awards.

“I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age. In those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family, co-workers, and then gradually, proudly to everyone who knew her, to everyone she actually met. But now apparently, I’m told that every celebrity is expected to honour the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance, and a prime time reality show.”
