Jodie Foster has been praised by a number of stars after confirming she is gay.
The 50-year-old actress candidly spoke about her personal life as she accepted the Cecile B. DeMille award for outstanding achievement in film at last night's Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles (13.01.13), and her Hollywood peers have shown an outpouring of support on Twitter following the speech.
Meanwhile, Latin singer Ricky Martin, who publicly acknowledged his sexuality for the first time in 2010, wrote: "Jody Foster On your terms. Its your time! Not before nor after. Its when it feels right! (sic)".
'Glee' actress Kristin Chenoweth was overcome by emotion watching the awards ceremony, which aired in the US last night.
She wrote: "im bawling. Jodie foster killed me. Wonderful (sic)".
Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss tweeted: "Jodie Foster is one of the most amazing actresses of all time. More than that she's one of the most amazing people."
Other stars who showed their support for the 'Panic Room' actress include Alan Cumming, Valerie Bertinelli, Nina Garcia and Gabrielle Union.
The actress also paid tribute to former partner Cydney Bernard, with whom she raises children Charlie, 14, and 11-year-old Kit, in her acceptance speech.
