LOS ANGELES — Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster came out as gay while accepting a Golden Globe lifetime achievement award this week. Foster had been coy about her sexual orientation for years, though in 2007 acknowledged her former partner during another awards show.

Reaction from LGBT advocates was mixed, with some longtime activists criticizing Foster for staying in the closet for so many years.

Meanwhile, “Titanic” actor Victor Garber confirmed he is gay to blogger Greg Hernandez at the TV Critics Association Press Tour, by saying, “I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows.”
