Even though Jodie Foster has managed to keep her private life relatively under wraps for the better part of twenty years, it couldn’t last in today’s day of paparazzi and media saturation. Although Jodie has never come right out and said she’s gay, she did give a long-winded speech at the Golden Globe awards where she pretty much ‘officially’ came out of the closet. And now, Jodie has been spotted with her rumored girlfriend, Alexandra Hedison, on a brunch date at Charlie’s Pantry in Hollywood.
Jodie was previously with Cydney Bernard for over twenty years before they ended their relationship in 2008. Since then, Jodie has flown under the radar, but it looks like she’s finally found love again. According to the report from US Weekly, Jodie and Alexandra seemed very close and intimate, and Jodie was reportedly eating food off Alexandra’s plate. Sure, that’s something best friends do as well, but it works better in the context of this story.

Alexandra has previously dated Ellen Degeneres, so she clearly has a thing for famous women. They dated for four years before Ellen met Portia de Rossi, and Ellen has gone on the record about how amazing Alexandra is. I guess that bodes well for Jodie?

In the end, the biggest takeaway from this story is the fact that Jodie Foster was actually photographed with her rumored love interest – in public and showing affection. Jodie is notoriously private, but maybe she’s finally forcing herself to get accustomed to the way that celebrities have to live now?
