Jodie Foster is a very very private lady, so don’t be too sad that you weren’t notified until about three hours ago that she and her darling girlfriend Alexandra Hedison were officially married over the weekend. Did you know Alexandra Hedison was once on Melrose Place? Hey here’s a picture of Alexandra and Jodie having brunch last October.
There are approximately zero details being made public for now, so we’re free to imagine the ceremony and reception however we like. Jodie Foster in a zoot suit? Check. The entire wedding party dressed as the cast of Little House on the Prairie? Yes. Alexandra Hedison speaking her vows via interpretive flute? You know it. Guests enjoying Me-N-Ed’s gluten-free mini pizzas and Franzia? Stars are just like us! Dogs as ring bearers? FERRETS AS RING BEARERS.
You let your imagination run wild, my queer sisters and otherwise gendered and identified persons. Don’t let anything stand in your way. Jodie Foster and Alexandra Hedison sure as hell aren’t.
MERRY MATRIMONY, YOU CRAZY KIDS.
My head just exploded!!!!! Is this the next installment of Autostraddle’s Intense Lesbian Fiction?!?! HOW WILL HELENA FEEL ABOUT THIS?!
I’m reasonably sure there was processing of feelings involved during the ceremony itself. Also the dress code was definitely “ALH required.” Because duh.
Another article I read about this referred to Alexandra Hedison as a photographer and my immediate response was ‘ahhh no EXCUSE me she’s a documentary ma… oh wait’.
Seriously? I find it hard to get excited about a woman who finds it so difficult to acknowledge she might not be heterosexual.
People have their own ways of dealing with things and going through things. Perhaps you may not have found it difficult in your experience, but for others it’s not so black and white. You do not know what things they have faced, as there may be other variables that are hidden and only known to that particular person.
As someone who knows all about hidden variables all too well, I find your comment to be spot-on & I thank you for it. Beautifully succinct. :)
I don’t get this comment. She came out publicly and she just married a woman – what else does she need to do to acknowledge that she isn’t heterosexual?
Coming out is hard for almost everyone, and I imagine that coming out to the whole world must be even harder. Also, keep in mind that Jodie Foster is in her fifties. The culture was much less friendly towards LGBT people when she was growing up, and there were almost no out actors in Hollywood when she was young. Condemning her for not coming out sooner seems really judgmental.
This is pretty great! Ferret ring bearers. I think this proves imagining is more fun than snooping!
If they had to twin…
“Jodi Foster’s wedding was completely normal except every ‘I do’ was replaced with ‘None of your business’.” – Louis Virtel
ok didn’t they JUST start dating though
This is what I’m saying!! I bet Cydney is feeling the burn.
Jodie Foster and Alexandra Hedison sitting in eco-friendly vacation tree, p-r-o-c-e-s-s-I-N-G, first comes love, then comes marriage…
God I’m just pleased that Jodie F has finally found someone who seems to have a nice vibe. I think she’s got a nice vibe, but Jodie’s lynched her. Cougar.
I smell Uhauling afoot.
I log out of the internet for 24h and Jodie Foster decides to get married?
Such great news and I’m happy for them both!
