Big news today! Jodie Foster just married girlfriend Alexandra Hedison. The two have been dating for a little over a year and seem head over heels in love with one another. They got married over the weekend and did their best to keep it a private event. We say kudos to the couple. They should have just as much of the right to be married as the rest of us.
Jodie Foster, best known for her role in Silence of the Lambs, has led a private life but the actress has done it on purpose. She gives so much to the screen, but offers little in the way of her private life. Though she battled to keep her love life secret for a long time, many of us saw her acceptance speech at last year’s Golden Globes as a sort of “I am who I am, and that is just who I am” moment, so this news should be surprising to no one.
Also, it should be upsetting to no one. Who someone chooses to love in their own time has nothing to do with any of us. To Jodie Foster and her new wife we wish the best of luck and offer a genuine congratulations.
