Jodie Foster marries photographer girlfriend Alexandra Hedison
Oscar-winner said to be 'totally in love' with Alexandra Hedison
Thursday 24 April 2014
Hollywood star Jodie Foster has married her girlfriend Alexandra Hedison, the Oscar-winning actor’s publicist has confirmed.
The news that Foster, 51, and Hedison, 44, a photographer and also an actor, was first reported by E! television. It said they had been dating since last summer and quoted sources as saying previously that the couple were “totally in love”.
The publicist, Jennifer Allen, offered no other information about the wedding last weekend.
The deeply private Foster only came out publicly in a rambling, heartfelt speech at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, where she accepted a lifetime achievement award.
“I hope that you're not disappointed that there won't be a big coming-out speech tonight, because I already did my coming-out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age,” she said in the speech.
She added that there seemed to be a demand for celebrities to reveal they are gay “with a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show”.
Foster had a 20-year relationship with Cydney Bernard, with whom she has two sons, but that ended in 2008. She did not hide the relationship, but also did not talk about it or her sexuality in public.
In addition to working as a photographer, Hedison has appeared in television shows such as Nash Bridges and The L Word.
She went out with comedian Ellen DeGeneres for about three years about 10 years ago.
