Jodie Foster has split with her longterm partner Cydney Bernard, according to tabloid reports.
The news comes just five months after the intensely private star paid tribute to her alleged partner of 14 years at an award ceremony.
The 45-year-old, who had never before acknowledged Bernard in public, gushed about her during an acceptance speech at a Los Angeles film gala in December.
Foster called her friend, “My beautiful Cydney, who sticks with me through with me through the rotten and the bliss.”
An insider tells the National Enquirer, “Jodie breaking up with Cydney is shocking. Right now it’s the best kept secret in Hollywood, and it’s not just because Jodie is legend and an intensely private person, either.
“She and Cydney have been together for so many years and have two children together, the potential fallout and legal wrangling from this split could be monumental.”
The couple has two adopted children together; Charles, nine, and Kit, six.
Foster’s publicist was unavailable for comment as WENN went to press.
Jodie Foster wants her children to join her in the movie business – but as directors instead of actors.
The actress insists she would never ban her two sons, Charles, nine, and Kit, six, from following in her footsteps – but she would rather they worked behind the camera, and she is already teaching them tricks of the trade.
Foster tells AOL movies, “If they begged and begged and begged (to act), I would understand. I try to get them interested in the technical side of filmmaking.
“I say, ‘I wonder how they did that. Do you think they did it with a blue screen?’
“I try to get them interested in lenses or just de-mystifying it (filmmaking) a little bit for them. It’s a beautiful business. I want them to love films, but I want them to be on the side of it that I think, in some ways, can be the most rewarding.”
Jodie Foster channeled her inner rock star during an appearance on U.S. TV show Rachael Ray on Friday, the Oscar winner showed off her skills playing video game Guitar Hero.
The actress, famed for starring in hard-hitting dramas such as last year’s The Brave One, aired her lighter side playing the Wii game’s strap-on guitar controller to Kiss classic Rock ‘N’ Roll All Night.
But Foster, who plays the Guitar Hero at home with her two young boys, was taken aback when she realized the game’s difficulty level had been set to ‘hard’.
She told the audience, “You have it on hard. You’re not supposed to have it on hard already.”
The recent premiere of Jodie Foster’s new movie Nim’s Island marked the first time the actress’ two children were allowed into a screening of one of their mother’s films.
Foster’s kids, Charles, nine, and Kit, six, were forbidden from leaving the actress’ trailer on the set of her recent vigilante movie The Brave One, in which she plays a woman who embarks on a revenge mission after she is brutally attacked. So Foster was relieved she could finally take her kids to family film Nim’s Island’s premiere over the weekend.
She says, “It’s the first movie (of mine) my kids ever saw at a movie theater, the first premiere they’ve been able to go to. “The last movie (I made) they couldn’t even see the commercials. They came to the set but had to stay in my trailer.”
