Jodie Foster gave an impassioned, rambling speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night after her receiving her Cecil B. Demille award for lifetime achievement. Whether it was a coming-out speech or she was hinting at retirement from Hollywood was hard to tell, but Twitter lit up with speculation that she had just announced the end of her career.
The actress fueled retirement rumors when she bemoaned the lack of privacy in Hollywood today.
"Privacy — maybe someday in the future, people will look back and remember how beautiful it once was," Foster said. "I have given everything out there, from the time I was three years old. That is reality enough."
"I am not Honey Boo Boo Child," she added.
Minutes later, Foster's Wikipedia page was updated to reflect her recent retirement, but when the LA Times' Amy Kaufman asked the actress about it, she laughed it off.
Backstage, Jodie says she's NOT retiring. "Oh, no, I could never stop acting. You'd have to drag me behind a team of horses." #GoldenGlobes

Did Jodie Foster Come Out?
More on Jodie Foster's big night at the Golden Globes:
After being introduced by Robert Downey Jr., Foster coyly said, "While I’m here being all confessional, I just have the sudden urge to say something I’ve never been able to air in public. A declaration that I’m a little nervous about. Not quite as nervous as my publicist, huh, Jennifer? But uh, you know, I’m just going to put it out there. Loud and proud. I’m going to need your support. I am -- single!"

@ Breznican :
Most interesting theory heard at Globes: Argo gets Best Picture Oscar as rest of Academy overcompensates for directors' Affleck snub.

@ AmyKinLA :
Affleck just WON'T say he's upset about the Oscar snub. Says he's a member of the Academy & so are the filmmakers he admires. #GoldenGlobes

She Beat Meryl
Remember when Jennifer Lawrence said "I beat Meryl" and everyone thought she was slamming Meryl Streep and not referencing "First Wives Club."

Some stars didn't make the best-dressed list. From HuffPost Style:
The 2013 Golden Globes took place on Sunday night in Los Angeles, and true to form, brought out the very best in fashion and style. As it happens, they also brought out the worst in red carpet dresses, from misplaced cutouts to heavy fabric to frocks that don't belong at a prestigious awards ceremony.

From the red carpet, some of the Golden Globes best-dressed celebrities. Via HuffPost Style.
The 2013 Golden Globes had us jumping for joy. Not because some of our favorite TV shows and movies won (yay, "Homeland"), but because actresses took style chances on the red carpet this year, making for an interesting awards show (and an amazing best-dressed list).
