Bret Easton Ellis takes on Jodie
"What is everybody talking about? Didn't I just hear Jodie Foster fake a coming out speech? I've never heard the word PRIVACY said so loudly."
"The Hollywood hypocrisy is complete: Jodie Foster accepts her Lifetime Achievement award at The GG's and then demands PUBLIC PRIVACY..."
"Jodie Foster was drunk."
"Jodie Foster says "I want all of the good stuff and none of the bad stuff!" What is she? A three year-old lesbian?"
"Jodie Foster speech: doesn't really come out, brags about being 50, kills off her mother, celebrated by the LBGT community for coming out..."

BEE is right. I'm so sick of millionaire celebrities demanding privacy. They want fame on their terms only.

There's something of a difference between talking about your private life and accepting the label. I don't think a public figure who chooses to come out is required to accept the label, but making a big deal about not accepting the label is insulting to those who have chosen to take risks and accept the label.

BEE has devolved into an embarrassing loser, but he's absolutely right about this.

Look who's fucking talking. BEE wasn't out from the start, either.

[quote]He's right. Never mind anything else. Foster is a gay-shaming coward and an arrogant bitch. Acting like being gay is "private" is disgusting.
You're a fucking FOOL.

Is it possible to criticize a woman without calling her a "bitch " or a "cunt?"

BEE is a cunt. Jodie Foster isn't. Although she is friends with Mel Gibson which is bizarre.

Doesn't BEE make AIDS jokes?
Now he is hoping to make money from Lyndsay Lohan.
He is obviously jealous of Foster.

Her "date" to the GG was Mel Gibson. She is about as sad and self-loathing a dyke as exists on this planet. And she is an old woman so she doesn't need to quit acting in H'wood. Nobody will even notice.

I won't forgive her for putting Mel Gibson front and center when he is being justifiably shunned.

Off-topic: what's so odd about Mel Gibson is that he drives the most expensive sports cars but wears such cheap, tattered clothing.
Maybe Jodie is a member of his Church of the Holy Family? Maybe she's become a Catholic? That would explain her friendship with him and her more conservative family sensibilities.
Catholic bashing begins in 3..2...1..

Had to Google the fool, had no idea who he is but apparently
When asked an interview in 2002 whether or not he was gay, Ellis explained that he does not identify himself as gay or straight. He explained that he is comfortable to be thought of as gay, bisexual, or heterosexual and that he enjoys playing with his persona, identifying variously as gay, straight, and bi to different people over the years
Still don't give a shit about him.

Why don't you sad miserable people worry about your own lives instead of wetting your panties over the lives of celebrities?
Not one of you is nearly as accomplished nor have done a fraction as much for the gay community as the people you love to trash.

Jodie Foster didn't really have much of a choice in regard to her initial fame. After all, hasn't she been acting since she was 3? Her parents (or her mom...don't know her story about how she got into the biz) thrust her in the spotlight at a very young age and acting was something she was good at and all that she's known.
She is entitled to a degree of privacy and it's not like she ever out and out denied being a lezzie. Those rumors have been around for as long as I can remember and I thought she sort of confirmed them in a speech a few years ago where she thanked her long time partner.
What exactly does she need to do in order to make you people happy? Eat pussy on stage?

Her getting the DeMille award is a joke. She had a few good years, wasn't bad for a child actor, but has directed crappy movies and hasn't had a decent movie in years. And then she hangs out with Mel Gibson, an anti-semitic piece of crap. And then blathers on, whining all the way.
