Since I was very young I remember Jodie Foster. I am the same age as Jodie and she made growing up in the 70's that much more fun. Watching her become the gracious and Incredible actress she is has been a real treat. I wish her all the good in the world and her courage is to be commended. Thank you for being you Jodie, Peace.

I remember I studied her acting career in a literature class at university. Foster is a strong shot in the arm for the feminist movement. Her award winning Silence of the Lambs represents a breakthrough of the cinematic industry. Most of the female characters in movies before had no real autonomy, as they mostly portrayed weakness and victimhood. They were the ones to be save. They were passive. They were subordinates of the males.

But Foster's character in Silence is different. She plays the leading role. And her character is tough, is strong. She has a professional career. And she brings the whole plot to a resolution.

So the movie is a revolutionary step for the movie industry. It glorifies females over males.

And today she's coming out. That's so empowering.

It's pretty obvious she's gay from the moment she receive that award back in 1977....

Jodie Foster is probably the only Hollywood actress who can get away with openly making fun of the people who want to know so much about her private life.

Idk why but I’m like certain tomboyish girls I’m so serious When I first saw her in silence of the lambs she caught my heart lol even in the movie contact and the brave one omg 😍 it’s her character and her personality that has me. She is such a beautiful soul but clearly I don’t have a chance lol

Why is everyone saying she came out as lesbian when she never mentioned her sexuality to begin with
2:37 *que Mel Gibson having a stroke*
The first time I saw her was in freaky Friday and I just knew. My mom was happy to see me watching a movie she watched as a child and asked me if I liked it and at 9 I said “yep that girl is totally gay tho she’s cool” she was stunned for a second 😂
This woman is the greatest. Period.
I'm confused where's the coming out part?!

I must have had an "Alzheimer's episode" because I listened intently for the "coming out as a lesbian"
moment + I didn't hear THE WORDS, any word, or word combo that would even hint that she's a lesbian.
If someone's reading this + doesn't mind taking the time to tell me where the "coming out" part was
.........ha.....I'd appreciate it!🤓
This speech always moves me to tears 👌

i just watched the silence of the lambs for the first time one week ago, not really knowing who jodie foster was (what a shame), but i truly loved her in this great great great movie and oH MY GOD MY GAYDAR FELT THAT SHE WASN’T STRAIGHT AND IT WAS RIGHT AND OMGGGGG MY GAYDAR IS SO STRONG, I????? (i’m so glad she found the strength to admit her sexuality to herself and also to others, i love knowing that she is currently living a happy life with her wife)

Even if I tried to learn more another life, I wouldn't pass the entrance exam to the university which she graduated from.

Nobody has to explain his/her sexual identity to public like that. Your choice, your life, nobody can interrupt. And that doesn't make Jodie "a hero".
Iris from Taxi Driver makes good!
