Jodie Foster delivered a raw, cracked open, moving speech on Sunday night at the Golden Globes. I could care less about awards show and I didn’t even watch it except for the section when Jodie was being presented with the lifetime achievement in film.
There are strange, negative remarks in blogs, gossip sites and comments about Jodie Foster floating around the internet that preceded her speech. It is terribly cryptic and eerie that these words have actually formed in someone’s mind. These are from people who have diminished intelligence and operate purely from their lower self. They are all angered for some reason that Foster didn’t shout the two words, “I’m gay.” She doesn’t owe any of you anything. She was being honored with an award for her lifetime in films. She’s earned the right to say whatever she wants in her speech. This isn’t some talentless Kardashian luring you all into a cesspool of garbage. This is one of the few remaining gifted natural actors that are left out there.
It appeared to be coming mostly from the gays having an issue with her for not saying the words, “I’m gay.” It’s funny because everyone else picked up what she was talking about except the gays, or maybe I should say the extremist gays. Anyone who is an extremist is a bully and their behavior is essentially what they are doing. They are bullying and harassing her because she didn’t say two words that they expected her to say. Why were you expecting her to say anything that pertained to you? This is about her, NOT YOU.
Others were complaining after she made a statement that her private life should be left private. They were saying things like, ‘Well then she shouldn’t have gone to the awards show?” Huh? This is not someone who was ever fame hungry the way we see many trying to be in these reality shows and social networking sites. This is someone who is a filmmaker and whose job it is to play a character in a movie. That’s it. She wants to do her work and have her personal home life be left alone. You would too unless you were a fame whore. I don’t know if any of you reading this have seen these scathing articles on the speech. It is borderline odd and psychopathic. They have some serious issues going on within them that require some personal addressing. The media or as I like to call them, “the ego”, loves to create drama.
Once again, the main reason she was at the Golden Globes was to collect her honor of working in films for 47 years. What is odd is no one is celebrating that with her. No one is talking about her movies. They want to talk about the whole gay thing. Who cares? Enough with these time wasting activities that do nothing, but stall you from focusing on your life purpose.
For those of you that missed it, Jodie delivered a fun, open hearted speech that touched a little on what her life is like. She created a family with a partner of twenty years and she saluted her mother. She also addressed everyone’s obsession over who she is and what goes on outside of the films. She plainly stated that she is not Honey boo-boo and therefore not interested in showcasing what her life is like when she’s not working. That was never her and nor will it ever be. She urged others to stop pressing for it because she wants to be left alone.
“If you had to fight for a life that felt real & normal against all odds, then maybe you too might value privacy above all else.” – Jodie Foster
