Ricky Gervais Outs Jodie Foster? — Who Cares?
Someone needs to check the definition of “outing.” Just because you make a joke about someone’s sexuality doesn’t mean that you’ve exposed some inside information about that person’s personal life thereby “outing” them. For years people have questioned Foster’s sexual preference and she’s never confirmed or denied it. She doesn’t have to, and I’m sure she’s used to others bringing it up. She is comfortable with the speculation, and Gervais is comfortable poking fun at the issue. Plus — something tells me Foster has a sense of humor about herself.
