Jodie Foster Says 'Every Day Is Gay Pride Day' For Her!

Jodie Foster Says 'Every Day Is Gay Pride Day' For Her!

Jodie Foster is on the cover of the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the 55-year-old Contact actress had to say…

On how women are questioning past behaviors in the wake of #MeToo: “I don’t think there is a woman I know, who doesn’t look back on when they were 15, 16, 17 or 18, who doesn’t put their hand on their head and say: ‘Why did I do that? Why was I like that? Why wasn’t I confident? Why didn’t I say no?’”

On how having an industry-savvy mother may have protected her from Hollywood’s abusers: “The weird cauldron that made me ­– working from the time I was three years old, supporting my family by the time that I was seven, super-strong mom, over-confident personality, celebrity young enough that I learned to be stand-offish… I think there’s a whole bunch of reasons why I didn’t have the same path as someone who came to Hollywood at 22 with two cents in her pocket and just wanted more than anything else to be an actor; it’s just a different life.”

On celebrating Pride Month: “Every day is gay-pride day for me.”

On how she didn’t want her children to know she was famous: “I didn’t want them to know about my celebrity at all. I remember when my son was about four, he thought I was a construction worker.”

    That’s a lot of words coming from Mel Gibson’s constant defender. She should probably keep her hypocritical mouth shut on “Hollywood abusers” and #MeToo.
