Actress Jodie Foster and girlfriend Alexandra Hedison enjoyed a walk together in New York City on Jan. 19, although Foster kept her distance as she was being photographed by the paparazzi.
Foster looked happy and relaxed in the company of Hedison as they took a stroll around the West Village. Both ladies were wrapped up warm with the Silence Of The Lambs star sporting a bright orange down jacket with a multicolored scarf wrapped around her neck. The 51-year-old wore black trousers and black ankle-high boots for the stroll, and she didn’t bother with make-up for the casual afternoon jaunt.
The girlfriend, Hedison, 44, is a photographer and actress. She appeared more conservatively clad in a black jacket over a black cable-knit polo-neck jumper, blue jeans and sneakers. However, she wasn’t taking any chances with the cold, pulling a white knitted hat on her head and wrapping a grey scarf around her neck.
At one point the 5ft 10in girlfriend stopped and turned around, possibly to take a phone call.
Foster and her girlfriend have been dating for around seven months, but the pair only went fully public with their relationship in October when they attended a red carpet gala at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, California.
It’s been a year since the Silence of the Lambs actress came out as a lesbian in an emotional speech at the 2013 Golden Globes, where she received the Cecil B. DeMille award.
The actress thanked her ex-partner, Cydney Bernard, saying, “I already did my coming out about 1,000 years ago back in the stone age, those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family and co-workers, and then gradually and proudly to everyone who knew her, to everyone she actually met,” the actress said, thanking her ex-partner Cydney Bernard. “(Cydney is) my heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life.”
Jodie Foster and girlfriend Alexandra are friends with Cydney, the mother of sons Charlie, 15, and Kit, 12, split up in 2008 after a 15-year relationship but remain good friends. The actress has never revealed the identity of the boys’ biological father.
Also, Jodie Foster’s girlfriend formerly dated Ellen DeGeneres and split in 2004 after three years together.
