Jodie Foster Marries Alexandra Hedison in Private Ceremony

by The Next Family April 24, 2014


Academy Award-winning actress Jodie Foster is a married woman! Who’s the lucky gal? None other than The L Word star (and famed photographer) Alexandra Hedison! Remember Dylan Moreland?

Foster and Hedison were married over the weekend in a private ceremony. E! Online first reported the story Wednesday. The two had been dating for one year before the surprise announcement. Rumors of a new love affair began when Foster and Hedison were photographed together at a technology seminar in Los Angeles. A few days later, the new couple dined with friends, and then were seen at the opening of Alan Cumming’s Macbeth in New York City.

During her Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award speech at the Golden Globes in 2013, Foster acknowledged her ex-partner of 20 years, Cydney Bernard, and their two children, Charles and Kit. She also spoke of her need for privacy.

“This is not going to be a big coming-out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the stone age – in those very quaint days when a fragile girl would open up to trusted friends and family and coworkers and then gradually proudly to everyone who knew her,” Foster began, before mentioning her family.

Hedison famously dated Ellen DeGeneres following DeGeneres’ split from Anne Heche. Hedison and DeGeneres were together for three years before their relationship ended in 2004. DeGeneres has since married Arrested Development actress Portia de Rossi.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
