Who is cydney bernard dating now
Actress Jodie Foster married her girlfriend, photographer Alexandra Hedison over the weekend, according to various news reports. Her publicist would only confirm that the couple, who have been dating since last summer, had gotten married, E! Leading the life of an openly gay actor, especially one headlining Hollywood blockbusters, meant you disclosed details about your personal life with friends and family, but didn’t necessarily show up at your premieres smooching your significant other. Now, 44 years after the Stonewall Riots, society expects its celebrities to be a little more forthcoming, a la Ellen Page, who recently came out in a speech at an LGBT youth conference in Las Vegas.
Aware that child stars are often unable to successfully continue their careers into adulthood, Foster became a full-time student at Yale in fall 1980, and her acting career slowed down in the following five years.I had a prodigious life, living in a grown-up world when I was a child.But I think my abilities were about perceptiveness and they were about examining psychology and examining people and relationships.She later stated that going to college was "a wonderful time of self-discovery", and changed her thoughts about acting, which she had previously thought was an unintelligent profession, but now realised that "what I really wanted to do was to act and there was nothing stupid about it." and during her college years appeared in O'Hara's Wife (1982), television film Svengali (1983), John Irving adaptation The Hotel New Hampshire (1984), French film The Blood of Others (1984), and period drama Mesmerized (1986), which she also co-produced.The film focuses on the aftermath of a gang rape and its survivor's fight for justice in the face of victim blaming. Foster's breakthrough came in Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976), in which she played a teenage prostitute; the role garnered her a nomination for an Academy Award.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, she worked in several primetime television series and starred in children's films.
Foster made her debut as a film director the same year with the moderately successful Little Man Tate (1991), and founded her own production company, Egg Pictures, in 1992.
The company's first production was Nell (1994), in which she also played the title role, gaining another nomination for an Academy Award.
Foster has said she loved acting as a child, and values her early work for the experience it gave her: "Some people get quick breaks and declare, 'I'll never do commercials! ' I want to tell them, 'Well, I'm real glad you've got a pretty face, because I worked for 20 years doing that stuff and I feel it's really invaluable; it really taught me a lot.'" Foster's mother was concerned that her daughter's career would end by the time she grew out of playing children, and decided that to ensure continued work and to gain greater recognition, Foster should also begin acting in films for adult audiences.
The Los Angeles Welfare Board initially opposed twelve-year-old Foster's appearing in the film due to its violent content, but relented after governor Pat Brown intervened and a UCLA psychiatrist assessed her.
Foster was born on November 19, 1962 in Los Angeles, as the youngest child of Evelyn Ella "Brandy" (née Almond) and Lucius Fisher Foster III.
