While making a joke about "Jodie Foster's beaver" in his Golden Globes monologue, host Ricky Gervais noted that he hadn't seen it himself—and that he had "spoken to a lot of guys here, they haven't seen it either. That doesn't mean it's not any good." TMZ wonders whether Gervais was implying Foster is a lesbian—a longstanding Hollywood rumor the actress has not spoken about publicly. Foster didn't appear upset when the camera turned to her, TMZ notes; in fact, she gave Gervais' Beaver joke a double thumbs-up. More Golden Globes coverage here. (More Ricky Gervais stories.)
