Jodie Foster’s speech, accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes, included a confusing rant about her 50th birthday, how much she loves acting (even though it sounded like she was retiring), and how much she loves women (Cydney Bernard, to be specific).
Her six minute monologue was taken by some as cryptic and confusing, causing many LGBT activists to criticize Foster's choice of words. Many people are saying that the televised "coming out" speech would have been more powerful, had it been more straightforward and quick to the chase.
Only minutes later she told the Los Angeles Times that she isn't retiring. "I could never stop acting," she told the paper. "You'd have to drag me behind a team of horses...I'd like to be directing tomorrow. But, no, I'm actually more into [acting] than I've ever been."
