Jodie Foster sent shockwaves through Hollywood this week by publicly acknowledging her same-sex lover of almost 20 years for the first time ever.
The actress was presented with a leadership award by the Hollywood Reporter at a Power 100 breakfast on Tuesday.
When accepting her award, Jodie thanked "my beautiful Cydney who sticks with me through all the rotten and the bliss."
Cydney is Cydney Bernard (pictured above), Foster's longtime partner and co-mother of their children.
In her speech, Jodie went on to characterize herself as a "professional" and a "gentleman," someone that's managed to have a 42-year career in Hollywood and come out relatively sane.
