Jodie Foster Outs Herself! "I'm Single!"

Jodie Foster Outs Herself! "I'm Single!"

During a heartwarming and sincere speech at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Jodie Foster proudly announced she is single. Using her wit and charm, she coyly set up the speech to make it appear as if she was inferring to her sexuality. 

If being single makes you feel like you are in the minority or are part of an unaccepted group - think otherwise! You are part of a very large majority that is welcomed, embraced and accepted. Being single does not require you to use a separate entrance, sit on the back of the bus or file special citizenship papers. Although your right to marry is challenged (only because you do not have a plus one), you are no less different than your married and coupled up friends.
