She put a ring on it

What a difference a year and three months makes. After her somewhat rambling and long-in-the-coming out speech at the Golden Globes in January 2013 where she declared herself several things including the she was 1) Fifty!, 2) Had done her coming out a thousand years ago in the stone age, and 3) Single, Jodie Foster is now a married woman. E! Online confirmed today that the Jodie wed her girlfriend, Alexandra Hedison, over the weekend.

First things first: MAZEL TOV, YOU BIG GAYMOS!

Second things second: I really hope they got married in sensible shoes and capris, like the photo E! used of them together. Barring that, it had better have been impeccably tailored Armani suits. Yum.

Third things next: Wow. You know, back in the slightly more recent stone age when Jodie’s orientation was an open secret, but still never acknowledged to the masses, I would have never guessed that this most private of stars would have made the most public of declarations. But that’s the funny thing about time and progress and change. It happens, whether you expect it or not. Also, isn’t it wonderful that (assuming they were married in California, though New York works too) their marriage will be recognized by the federal government? Yes, yes it is wonderful.

I really couldn’t be happier for Jodie and Alex. Those of you who have been around here a while know she is my oldest and most persistent crush. So her happiness makes me happy. And nothing speaks to the eternal hope for the future than declaring “I do” to the person you want to spend forever with. I will refrain from making the obligatory U-Haul joke about them having publicly dated less than a year before tying the knot and just wish all the best to the happy couple.

And now we have two crazy bitches married to each other. Does it make it good right or healthy? No.

Congratulations to them both! Been a huge Jodie fan since I don't even know when & never thought I'd see the day she was so open about her private life. Not that she's holding a reality tv show or something but this is way more than I ever thought we'd see from her tbh.

Great that she feels confident & happy & secure enough to do so & I wish her & Alex & all their family all the best.

Really, anonymous? How about checking your disinterest at the door. If these two women love each other, why shouldn't they get married.

Congrats to both.

In true Jodie fashion, no real date, time, location or photo given!

One confirmation and that's all she'll be giving us. Love it.

That isn't their wedding photo, is it? If not, when was that pic taken.

They do make a fascinating couple.
Yes, quite amazing the 360 degree turn from secret life to public marriage!

Times they are a changing!

This is wonderful news and I wish them a long and happy life together. Jodie and I are in the same decade now and she was my first crush and will always have a special place in my heart.
