Actress Jodie Foster’s rep confirmed today that Foster married girlfriend Alexandra Hedison this past weekend at a secret location. 

The Oscar winner and Hedison, an actress and photographer, have been dating for less than a year. They made their first public appearance in October 2013 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts gala in Beverly Hills.

Foster previously dated Cydney Bernard from 1993 to 2008. The two share parental duties of Foster’s sons Charlie, 14 and Kit, 11.

Foster addressed her sexual orientation in her acceptance speech for a lifetime achievement award at the 2013 Golden Globes, stating, “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.”

Her new wife, Alexandra Hedison, dated Ellen DeGeneres for three years before they split in 2004. She is famous for her photography work, which has been featured in New York and Los Angeles. You also might have seen her playing character Dylan Moreland on Showtime’s drama series “The L Word.”

As of now, the two women have not commented on their recent marriage, and knowing Foster’s usual “crave” for privacy, it may be a while before we get to hear more news about their life together.
