While everyone was listening to Jodie Foster stumble nervously and reluctantly toward her coming out, her real message to the world was whispered so quietly only dogs heard her.
In case you missed the Jodie Foster Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, here is a transcript of that passage. It is at the very end.
I will continue to tell stories, to move people by being moved.
The greatest job in the world. It is just that from now on, I may be holding a different talking stick.
And maybe it won’t be as sparkly; maybe it won’t open on three thousand screens
Maybe it will be so quiet and delicate that only dogs can hear it whistle.
But it will be my writing on the wall, Jodie Foster was here
I still am and I want to be seen, to be understood deeply and to be not so very lonely.
