10 Reasons We Love Golden Globe Honoree Jodie Foster

Producer, director and two-time Academy Award winning actress Jodie Foster is set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes this Sunday, and it could not be more well deserved. While Foster’s visceral turns in Taxi Driver, The Accused and The Silence of the Lambs are reason enough to adore the former child star who attended Yale, and who is likely a lesbian, we thought we’d honor her with the reasons we love her.

2) She Likes the Ladies (We're Pretty Sure)! 

Not one to really confirm or deny, Jodie remained mum about all of those lesbian rumors that swirled about her since she and Scott Baio stopped escorting each other to Hollywood parties at the age of 13. That is, until 2007, when she thanked Cydney Bernard, the woman who was presumably her partner at the time. She was, after all, living with Cydney and raising her two sons with her. While accepting the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at the 16th annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast Foster thanked, “my beautiful Cydney, who sticks with me through the rotten and the bliss,” which was widely considered to be tantamount to coming out at the time. She and Cydney are no longer together, but maybe there’s a special someone Jodie intends to thank while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award this Sunday. Since Jodie's speech from the award breakfast is not available here's a picture of her with Nastassja Kinski in The Hotel New Hampshire, the 1984 film in which Jodie's character has a fling with Nastassja's, a woman who thinks she's a bear.
