Jodie Foster marries girlfriend Alexandra Hedison

Well, she?s not single anymore.

Actress Jodie Foster married her girlfriend, photographer Alexandra Hedison over the weekend, according to various news reports.

Foster acknowledged her sexuality in a large scale announcement for the first time in a 2013 Golden Globes acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award. She nervously built up to her big reveal: ?I am, uh, single.? It was a wink and a nod to the fact that her sexuality was something of an open secret in Hollywood, if you could even call it that. She hadn?t actively tried to conceal it, but she didn?t flaunt it, either. Said Foster:

CHICAGO ? The Washington Wizards had to wait six years to get back to the postseason. But they only needed two games to really get introduced to playoff basketball, with more physical play, short tempers and extreme rallies. In the intense cauldron of United Center ? a place that has devoured more seasoned units ? the Wizards refused to relent after watching a 17-point lead turn into a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, and didn?t crumble when they were betrayed by missed free throws and calls that went against them.
