Maybe one day she'll actually say the words 'I'm gay'
Why should she have to? Who are you to suggest she do this?

She is fantastic - but I do question her character as she is good friends with the abominable Mel Gibson. How anyone can support that douche is beyond me
She also made a Roman Polanski film not long ago too,which I feel is a bit dodgy as well, as I'd personally avoid that guy like the plague.

I thought her speech was cringworthy and self indulgent in the extreme

It was a lifetime achievement award one of the moments in life when you are allowed to be self indulgent.

Really, do you think she's alone in making films with people who have bad reputations? Practically all of Hollywood is currently in bed with a mogul/producer with one of the sleaziest reputations around and yet no one is condemning them. Polanski is a very talented filmmaker and actors, oddly, like to work with talented and interesting directors. If Jodie is dodgy for working with Polanski, then so are Ewan Macgregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Winslet, John C Reilly, Emilia Fox, Adrien Brody, the list goes on and on. Condemn one, condemn them all if you want, but let's not have one rule for Jodie and another for everyone else.

It is indeed a testament to her loyalty that she remains friends with him but I cannot admire her for it I'm afraid. Drunk or not, Gibson is a disgusting racist and to associate herself with him is, IMHO, unforgivable. (I feel very strongly about it as you can tell)....
He made a lot of very sexist comments too. I cannot abide sexism. On top of that, he physically attacked his ex girlfriend. Again, I cannot abide violence against women by cowardly men. He's become a bit of an outcast in Hollywood now, which is unsurprising since a lot of the powerful in that place are Jews.

So, Jodie must be a very understanding woman to still be friends with such a man. He must have some redeeming qualities since she seems to be a very nice woman with a good head on her shoulders.

As for her 'coming out.' Meh. It's been known for at least 30 years that she's a lesbian.

You probably wouldn't need to worry too much unless you were a 15 year old girl.........
