Ricky Gervais Outs Jodie Foster As Lesbian

Ricky Gervais Outs Jodie Foster As Lesbian

Ricky Gervais joked about Jodie Foster’s sexuality during the Golden Globe Awards last night and in effect outed her as a lesbian.  Gervais was slammed when he hosted the event in 2011 for insulting several celebrities in the audience – read out a list of topics he was banned from mentioning. But then he went for Foster using her movie ‘The Beaver’ as his angle.

He said: “The Hollywood Foreign Press have warned me that if I insult you or cause any controversy, they would invite me back next year. [They gave me] a list of rules, and this is real. No profanity. That’s fine. I’ve got a huge vocabulary.”

“No nudity. See, that’s a shame, because I’ve got a huge … vocabulary, but tiny penis. It works. I don’t care. It’s fine.  No smut or innuendo. Or I’m not to libel anyone.”

“And I must not mention Mel Gibson this year. Not his private life, his politics, his recent films or especially not Jodie Foster’s Beaver. I haven’t seen it myself. I’ve spoken to a lot of guys – they haven’t seen it either but that doesn’t mean it’s not good.”

However, Jodie appeared to take it all in good humour and responded with a thumbs-up sign before clapping.”

One person who didn’t take too kindly to Ricky’s jokes was ‘W.E.’ director Madonna.  He quipped: “Our next presenter is the Queen of Pop.  No, not you Elton. She’s all woman. She’s always vogue, she’s a Material Girl and she’s just like a virgin. Please welcome Madonna.”

Madonna fired back: “If I’m still a virgin Ricky, then why don’t you come on do something about it? I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years. On TV.”

Ricky, 50, also poked fun at Justin Bieber’s recent paternity scandal – where a fan accused him of fathering her baby – saying: “Justin Bieber nearly had to take a paternity test. What a waste of a test that would have been.  No, he’s not the father. The only way that he could have impregnated a girl was if he borrowed one of Martha Stewart’s old turkey basters.”

Celebrity break-ups also came in for a bashing with Ricky focusing on Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.

He said: “Arnold and Maria. J.Lo and Marc Anthony. Ashton and Demi. Kim Kardashian and some guy no one will ever remember.  He wasn’t around long. Seventy-two days – a marriage that lasted 72 days. I’ve sat through longer James Cameron speeches.”
