Jodie Foster Hasn't Fallen in Love Yet

Jodie Foster Hasn't Fallen in Love Yet

Jodie Foster is featured in this week’s cover story in Parade. She never married but has two sons: Charles Bernard Foster, 9, and Kit Bernard Foster, 6.

In the article, Jodie opens up about her childhood influences, how she almost quit acting and how being a child prodigy is “inherently lonely.”

On not opening up about her personal life: “I don’t think there is any good thing about fame. In this business, in order to care for yourself and the people you love, you have to separate your professional life from your personal life.”

On having not yet fallen in love: “Oh, my life is basically from the head up. I’m definitely not proud of that. I’m very analytical.”

On protecting her kids from the spotlight: “I do what I can. We try not to go out at night or go places where there’ll be 20 photographers. I try to minimize their exposure to assaults.”

What’s strange is that Jodie made paid tribute to longtime companion film producer Cydney Bernard during an acceptance speech in December 2007 at a breakfast for Hollywood Reporter‘s Women in Entertainment. Does that not count as love?

Check out more interview tidbits at Parade.com. Jodie‘s new family comedy-adventure, Nim’s Island, opens on April 4.

Jodie is an excellent actress and to be commended for not discussing her personal life. I have much respect for her.

With the psychos that chase her I’d be keeping my kids as protected and away from everything as possible too. She’s always been one of my favorite actresses and I’m glad she’s still making movies. I’m looking forward to Nim’s Island. Her child prodigy line is sad.

Do the people at Parade not know that she is gay and has been in a long-term relationship with a woman for many,many years??

Just wondering?

# 7

What a sh*tty think to say about not falling in love. She’s been with that lady Cynthia for years. I’m shocked by that comment from Jodie. It’s so disrespectful

And yet her children have “Bernard” in their names. Talk about things that make you go ‘hmm’.
She sucks.

No doubt a class act. People need to shut up about their personal lives, I am so sick of people like Angelina Jolie talking about her family (as if we even know them) and trying to bring familiarity to an audience of people she does not know or care about. Jodie is a class act and a great actress

Some people feel lonely alone and some feel more lonely in a loveless relationship and some are just happy to be in a companionable relationship, where demands of devotion aren’t being made. My mother has been in one like that for years now. They travel together, have meals together and who knows what else but the bottom line is that they are both each others’ protection against loneliness. Maybe Jodie’s relationship is shaped differently because of the children and her sexual preference but the bottom line is the same. Pragmatism over romanticism. For some people that is good enough.

Yay my favorite actress and role model since I was a little girl. And Jodie has yet another creepy stalker after her. The girl is in her 40s is settled down wtih kids and she still can’t escape the crazy weirdos who probably shouldn’t have watched Taxi Driver on repeat. And people wonder why she’s so private. Leave her alone. She’s a brilliant actress and the classiest and most intelligent lady in the busienss. She’s a living legend and icon in my book. To go from being a sensation as a child actor to a 2 time Oscar winner and doing a lot for women’s roles in film and opening films #1 at the box office even in her 40s. She has had a brilliant career and has handled it with dignity the whole way through. She should be a role model to others too and people should leave her alone about her personal life.

I really like Jodie Foster too. She is a great actress. I saw her 07 movie” Brave One” Excellent! just the other night on our pay tv network and thought it was fantastic. They rated it a 2 star but it easily should have been 3 as in very good.

I give her credit for what she said about keeping her life as private as possible. What good would it do JF to start talking about her g/f Cynthia except to give people somthing to dislike about her. With the anonymity on our computers you notice the homophobics out there by large numbers who will hold that against her wonderful acting.

I have always liked Jody Foster’s smarts.
Go Jody will be looking for your new movie when it comes out.

and that line about falling in love is taken so out of context. She doesn’t talk about things like that. She was just meaning that she’s not the type of person that romanticizes things because she is very analytical and intellectual about everything.

I could care two hoots and a holler about her personal life. Her acting is awesome and she has consistently entertained through all of her work. I’ll admit to wanting to peep her kids but oh well, my life will remain the same if I don’t get to see them.

Beautiful dress by the way. Love you Jodie!

I find it weird that she plays the straight role so much. I’m not asking her to come out, she doesn’t owe anyone that. It’s a personal choice. However, I also find it boring and insulting to my intelligence that I’m supposed to believe she’ s 1. straight and 2. isn’t selling her personal life. She is doing both, she’s just more low key about it. And she has found love with a partner for over a decade. Like I said, stay inside your closet but don’t think you’re fooling anyone. No one’s that good an actor. Not even you.

Oh grow the F up. Every celebrity is asked about their personal lives. You think Jolie or anyone else like Jennifer Garner or Kate Beckensale flounce into an interview volunteering information? You dumb F*ck

Jodie has more class in her little finger than…well, you get my meaning. She is a national acting treasure and should not be expected to play lesbian roles just to reflect her sexuality. Acting is about playing a part no matter what your emotional, intellectual or sexual nature actually is. It’s like saying you can’t play an action role unless you are moonlighthing in fight clubs or WFW Raw or something similar.

Her classiness is manifested dramatically by the fact that she keeps her personal/family life PRIVATE and does not look to use that part of her life to keep her on the cover of tabloids. She is an ACTRESS not a celebrity or a “movie” star. And all these people should follow her lead when it comes to using their kids for publicity. I should not be seeing pictures of all these stars children from Madonna, Tom Cruise, Reese Witherspoon, G Paltrow, Jolie-Pitts and on and on. What are they thinking – allowing their kids pictures to be spread all over the media? That is so low-class.
