Jodie Foster
Jodie Foster, winner of the 2013 Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille award, gave an impassioned and refreshingly no-bullshit acceptance speech last night, which also functioned as a coming-out-but-I've-already-come-out moment, and a possible retirement announcement. Watch below, the star-studded audience listens with rapt attention.

Foster's words on coming out, which were partially bleeped by censors:

"[Audio silent for seven seconds] ... be a big coming-out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age, in those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family and co-workers and then gradually, proudly to everyone who knew her, to everyone she actually met. But now I’m told, apparently that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show."

    It sounds to me like she came out in her speech and then requested some respect for her privacy. Seems pretty clear to me. And quite reasonable. What's the problem?

    So, what was bleeped out? Surely someone must have heard and reported?
