Foster ‘totally in love’ with Ellen’s ex

Jodie Foster is reportedly dating Ellen DeGeneres’ ex-girlfriend.

The Oscar-winning actress has allegedly been seeing actress and photographer Alexandra Hedison for several months.

Alexandra, who was with talk show host Ellen before the comedienne married Portia de Rossi, is apparently now in a committed relationship with Jodie and the pair are said to be besotted with one another.

“It’s pretty serious,” a source told E! Online. “They’re totally in love.”

The pair were first linked this summer after they were photographed together at a technology seminar at Fox Studios in Los Angeles, California. They were then seen enjoying dinner with some days later.

The duo also attended the opening of Alan Cumming’s Macbeth in New York City separately in April, but seemed to make an effort not to be snapped in the same frame.

Before breaking up in 2004, Alexandra was with Ellen for three years, according to the website.

She is also known for portraying Dylan Moreland in US drama The L Word for three seasons.

Jodie famously thanked her ex Cydney Bernard when she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes in January and spoke of her need for privacy as she commented on her sexuality.

The former couple share sons Charles and Kit and broke up in 2008 after 20 years together.

“I hope you won’t be disappointed that there won’t be a big coming out speech tonight, because I already did my coming out a thousand years ago, back in the Stone Age,” she quipped at the awards ceremony.

“In those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to friends and family and co-workers then gradually, proudly to everyone that knew her, everyone she actually met.

“But now apparently I’m told that every celebrity is to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show.”
