Golden Globes 2021: Jodie Foster kisses her wife Alexandra Hedison after winning Best Supporting Actress
1st March 2021

JODIE Foster gave her wife Alexandra Hedison a sweet kiss after winning Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globe Awards.

The actress, 58, and her photographer partner, 51 – who married in 2014 – appeared virtually for the ceremonyin their pajamas on Sunday evening.

Jodie said "I love my wife" and planted a smooch on Alexandra when she triumphed for her role as a defense attorney in the legal drama, The Mauritanian.

The couple were sitting side by side on their couch, with their dog Ziggy in their lap, as they tuned in for the 78th Golden Globes ceremony.

The Hollywood heavyweight was given the award by her "bestie" and fellow actress, Jamie Lee Curtis.

"Oh, my god, are you kidding me?! I think you made a mistake um, I am — uh, I'm a little speechless I just never expected to ever be here again!" Jodie exclaimed in her speech.

She won her first Golden Globe in 1992 for Silence Of The Lambs and nabbed the Cecil B. DeMille award in 2013.

"I have to thank all of my amazing filmmakers, Kevin McDonald, Tahar Rahim, Benedict Cumberbatch, Shailene Woodley," Jodie continued.

"The real life people, Nancy Hollander, and most of all, the person that we all serve, we love you Mohamedou Ould Salahi, you taught us so much about being a human being, and being joyful and forgiving, that's a lesson you give to all of us."

She concluded: "I love my wife, thank you Alex and Ziggy and Aaron Rodgers [Shailene's fiance]. This is awesome! What a night!"

The Mauritanian tells the true story of Mohamedou Ould Salahi, who was wrongly held at Guantanamo Bay without charge or trial for 14 years. 

Jodie was up against Glenn Close, Olivia Colman, Amanda Seyfried, and Helena Zengel for the gong.

The actress was tight-lipped about her sexuality for years, but came out in 2013 while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 70th Golden Globes.

“I guess I have a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never been able to air in public that I’m a little nervous about – but maybe not as nervous as my publicist,” she said at the time.

“So I’m just going to put it out there, loud and proud, right? I’m going to need your support on this. I am, uh… I’m single.”

She continued: “I already did my coming out a thousand years ago, in the Stone Age. Those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to friends and family and co-workers then gradually to everyone that knew her, everyone she actually met.

"But now apparently I’m told that every celebrity is to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show.”

She then thanked her former partner Cydney Bernard, with whom she has two sons, Charlie and Kit.

“There’s no way I could ever stand here without acknowledging one of the deepest loves of my life: my heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life, my confessor, ski buddy, consigliere, most beloved BFF of 20 years, Cydney Bernard,” she said.

Jodie and Alexandra got married in April 2014 after dating for just over a year.

Alexandra's most notable previous relationship was with Ellen DeGeneres.

They began dating in 2001, after the talk show host split from actress Anne Heche.

Alexandra and Ellen split in 2004, a year after she launched the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Ellen went on to marry Portia De Rossi after they met at the VH1 Awards.
