Jodie has kept her normally low profile since she finished promoting “Nim's Island” last year. The notoriously private star nonchalantly caused a seismic shift in her public persona when in Dec. 2007 she openly spoke the love that she had previously been decidedly mum about concerning longtime partner Cydney Bernard. But by next May all the gossip world was abuzz about her possible breakup with Cydney and hookup with screenwriter Cynthia Mort. I have no idea whether Jodie and Cynthia are still together. I have no idea whether Jodie and Cydney got back together. Nor do I particularly think that it's any of my business.
What I do know is that Jodie was at Sundance last month to support Uma Thurman and Minnie Driver's indie film “Motherhood.” Jodie has a small cameo in the comedy/drama about a mother (Uma) who prepares for her daughter's sixth birthday party. At Sundance, Spike Lee also revealed that plans for “Inside Man 2,” are still moving forward with Jodie and the rest of the original cast. Pending script approval, the sequel could being filming in late summer, early fall.
So, yeah, now you see why I haven't written about Jodie in a while. I ain't got much. But just because I don't have much on present Jodie doesn't mean I can't relive past Jodie. And with that, I give you: “Future Gay: A Video Essay”
