Jodie Foster Talks Pride And Relationships In New Interview

Jodie Foster opened up about her family’s plans for LA Pride.


The notoriously private Hollywood star had an interview with PorterEdit. While the cover story only just released, the conversation was, apparently, held a month ago. During that time, Foster shared what Pride meant to her and her family.

“Every day is gay pride day for me,” says the 55-year-old Hollywood icon.

“Actually, it’s gay pride month the whole of June,” Foster continues. “I didn’t realize until yesterday. We had to figure the whole flag situation, how long the flag [goes] up. My kids will go [to the parade]. My son said, ‘Maybe there will be naked bodies this year.’ I said, ‘You didn’t tell me there were naked bodies last year!’”

Promoting her latest film, Hotel Artemis, Foster also opens up about the #MeToo movement. “This is a transitional period, and it’s just so painful,” she says. “You really have to have a plan for truth and reconciliation. We can’t put every man over 30 in jail. We have to love our brothers and fathers and come to an understanding about how we got here and who we are going to be together.”

Jodie Foster came out in a 2013 Golden Globes speech. She then married Alexandra Hedison in 2014 and they now raise two sons from Foster’s former relationship with Cydney Bernard.

In the interview, Foster also opened up about her personal life, her 52 years in the film business, and how she keeps it all together. But to read all that, you'll have to head to the interview.
