In case you missed it or you’d like to see it again, here is Jodie Foster’s speech at the Golden Globe Awards where she come out (though she’s really already been out of the closet), gives a whacky speech, and says she is not Honey Boo Boo child.

I liked her speech. It was cryptic and at times long winded, but it was truthful and raw and came from a place of vulnerability so rarely seen from someone so in the public eye. And above all it seemed to be something she did, not for the benefit of her fans or the public in general, but for herself. I found myself confused and crying at the end, lol, but also feeling like I had just witnessed a beautiful, life-affirming, life-altering moment and I applaud her for having the courage to say what she needed to say, on her own terms.
