Here is a transcript of Jodie Foster's acceptance speech in receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award at Sunday night's Golden Globes:

"Well, for all of you 'SNL' fans, I’m 50! I’m 50! You know, I need to do that without this dress on, but you know, maybe later at Trader Vic’s, boys and girls. What do you say? I’m 50! You know, I was going to bring my walker tonight but it just didn’t go with the cleavage.

"Robert [Downey Jr.], I want to thank you for everything: for your bat-crazed, rapid-fire brain, the sweet intro. I love you and Susan and I am so grateful that you continually talk me off the ledge when I go on and foam at the mouth and say, 'I’m done with acting, I’m done with acting, I’m really done, I’m done, I’m done.'

"Trust me, 47 years in the film business is a long time. You just ask those Golden Globes, because you crazy kids, you’ve been around here forever. You know, Phil you’re a nut, Aida, Scott — thank you for honoring me tonight. It is the most fun party of the year, and tonight I feel like the prom queen.

"Thank you. Looking at all those clips, you know, the hairdos and the freaky platform shoes, it’s like a home-movie nightmare that just won’t end, and all of these people sitting here at these tables, they’re my family of sorts, you know. Fathers mostly. Executives, producers, the directors, my fellow actors out there, we’ve giggled through love scenes, we’ve punched and cried and spit and vomited and blown snot all over one another — and those are just the costars I liked. But you know more than anyone else I share my most special memories with members of the crew. Blood-shaking friendships, brothers and sisters. We made movies together, and you can’t get more intimate than that.

"So while I’m here being all confessional, I guess I have a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never really been able to air in public. So, a declaration that I’m a little nervous about but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now, huh Jennifer? But I’m just going to put it out there, right? Loud and proud, right? So I’m going to need your support on this.

    Is there an exact quote? The fact that Sodahead even have to ask, puts their theory into question. Who cares who comes out or not? Its their life, their business. This whole enterprise of guessing about people's sexual orientations is just boring.

    Well, sort of, because she has probably been hounded by the gay establishment to do so publically. It hasn't been much of a secret because she never really hid it.

    I don't know why some gay groups hound people like this. Its almost as if, if these people don't come out, they are not credible. Do they not realise that you do not have to come out, and it is not because of being ashamed, it is because of keeping your private life...private? Not hating on gays, but I have to ask.

    Really? What does being gay have to do with winning an award? That's right...zero.

  • ivegotl... Straud1976 2013/01/21 12:24:45
    ivegotloveinmypants
    Okay, we are getting personal. Actually I was only criticising the focus on her sexual orientation than her actual accomplishment which was winning an award. I am not a homophobe, if that is why you are getting angry. You can believe that or not. But being gay has nothing to do with her award or winning it, so we don't need to speculate. Its her business.
