Jodie Foster Weds Girlfriend

The wedding comes a year after the actress gave an acceptance speech at the Golden Globes in which she criticized the culture of celebrities ostentatiously coming out of the closet

Academy Award winner Jodie Foster over the weekend married her girlfriend of a year, Alexandra Hedison.

Foster, 51, began dating Hedison last summer, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Hedison, a photographer, was formerly in a relationship with Ellen DeGeneres until 2004.

Little more than a year ago, Foster gave a news-making speech in accepting a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes that many saw as her public coming out.

“I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age,” she said, “But now I’m told, apparently, that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show….No, I’m sorry, that’s just not me. It never was and it never will be.”
