Actress Jodie Foster

LOS ANGELES — Legendary actress Jodie Foster came out as gay, without officially coming out, at the Golden Globes awards on Sunday as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

“Seriously, I hope that you’re not disappointed that there won’t be a big-coming-out speech tonight,” she said, “because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age.”

Foster, 50, thanked her “ex-partner-in-love” Cydney Bernard, with whom she has two sons.

The actress called Bernard her “heroic co-parent” and “righteous soul sister in life.”

Many in the crowd cried as Foster spoke of her ailing mother, who reportedly suffers from dementia.

“I love you, I love you, I love you and I hope if I say this three times, it will magically and perfectly enter into your soul, fill you with grace and the joy of knowing that you did good in this life,” she said. “You’re a great mom. Please take that with you when you’re finally okay to go.”
