Jodie Foster’s Golden Globes speech is basically the best thing that’s ever happened. Ever.

This bought me out in floods of tears so I had to share it – an amazing speech from Jodie Foster in which she accepts her Cecil B DeMille Award at last night’s Golden Globes.

So articulate, so classy, so warm – she acknowledges her homosexuality in public for the first time, in a brilliant way (“I hope you won’t be disappointed that there won’t be a big coming out speech tonight, because I already did my coming out a thousand years ago… But now apparently I’m told that every celebrity is to honour the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show”), she pays tribute to her ex-partner and co-parent (“my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life”), and sets aside an incredibly moving moment to address her mother, who has dementia. That was the bit at which I (and, by the looks of it, Anne Hathaway) lost it.

The only downside is that she hints at a retirement from acting, which would be VERY BAD.
