Glee co-star Jane Lynch has
applauded Jodie Foster's Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance speech
at the Golden Globes.
Foster has been criticized for giving a
vague and rambling speech in which she repeatedly used the phrase
“coming out” and described her former partner as her “ex-partner
in love” but didn't actually say she is gay.
Foster did not deliver a “staying in” speech, Thomas Roberts
But Lynch, who is openly gay and is
raising a daughter with her wife, described the speech as “moving.”
“It was really moving and touching,”
Lynch told TV
Guide. “I loved that she shared a little bit about her
inner life with us, and what she said about her mother [who suffers
from dementia] broke my heart. I like the fact that she operates
without telling everybody what she's doing. It was a big moment that
she let us into her private thoughts, and I'm really grateful I was
there for it.”
Actor George Takei also came to
Foster's defense, saying
we shouldn't judge Foster.
