Jodie Foster plans to tell her beloved sons who their father is when they turn 21, the mother of the star’s best friend claimed today.
Jodie Foster, 50, was the talk of the Golden Globes on Sunday night as she openly discussed her sexuality and made a moving tribute to her former girlfriend and co-parent Cydney Bernard.
And watching on proudly were her two sons, Charles, 14, and Kit, 12, whose paternity has never been revealed.
Reverend Beverly Bates, 75, revealed that her son, the late Hollywood producer Randy Stone, who is rumored to be the boys’ real father, treated them as if they were his own.
She said: “Randy told me that Jodie said she’ll tell the boys who their father is when they’re 21.
“He said he could never tell me because Jodie was his best friend. He said <<mom, I can’t discuss this with you>>, he told me he had had to sign documents, it was a secret he took to his grave, that was how much he loved Jodie.
“He said <<I can’t break my promise to Jodie>> – and he kept his promise to her.”

Jodie Foster spoke out while accepting the Cecil B DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles, while her boys and Cydney, 59, looked on.
The star remained close with Randy Stone, an Oscar and Emmy winning producer and prominent gay rights activist, up until his death from heart failure in February 2007, and referred to him as her “best friend” at the Oscars in 2007.
Speaking from her home in Hawaii, Rev. Beverly Bates added: “I would love to know if Randy is the boys’ father, I personally think he gave Jodie the gift, but she will never tell me.
“And Randy made an agreement with Jodie that he would never tell. I know the boys have red hair and freckles, that’s not from our family – but Jodie’s side.
“To the boys he was <<Uncle Randy>>. He took them everywhere with him and cared for them as if they were his own.
“When Jodie went away on location, he moved in and helped Cyd look after them. He was their father figure.”
Describing Jodie Foster as a “beautiful mother”, Rev. Beverly Bates said the star wanted to keep the boys’ paternity a secret after being left haunted by John Hinckley’s bid assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981 – which he claimed he plotted to impress her.
Randy Stone served as executive producer for the film Little Man Tate, Jodie Foster’s directorial debut.
Rev. Beverly Bates, who had spent Christmas at Jodie Foster’s house before, said the last she knew Jodie had been dating a South American athlete.
Jodie Foster was the talk of the Golden Globes after an emotional speech while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.
Usually fiercely private Jodie Foster, 50, surprised the audience as she touched on her sexuality, her rarely-seen sons, Charles, 14, and Kit, 12, and her ailing mother, who suffers from dementia.
Jodie Foster also made a moving public tribute to her former partner Cydney Bernard, who bowed her head with emotion as she supported Jodie Foster from her seat beside their two children.
“While I’m here being all confessional, I guess I just have just a sudden urge to say something that I’ve never really been able to air in public,” Jodie Foster said with a smile.
“[It’s] a declaration that I’m a little nervous about – but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now. I’m just going to put it out there – loud and proud.”
She paused and asked the crowd for support before finally saying: “I am single.”
Jodie Foster received a boost from her close friend Mel Gibson, who offered a wolf-whistle from her table in the audience.
She continued: “This is not going to be a big coming out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the stone age – in those very quaint days when a fragile girl would open up to trusted friends and family and coworkers and then gradually proudly to everyone who knew her.
“But now apparently I’m told that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show.”
Jodie Foster thanked her “heroic co-parent, my ex partner in love, but righteous soul sister in life. My confessor… most beloved BFF of 20 years, Cydney Bernard”.
“Thank you, Cyd. I am so proud of our modern family, our amazing sons, Charlie and Kit who are my reason to breathe and to evolve. … Boys, in case you didn’t know it, this song, like all of this, this song is for you.”
Her sons smiled proudly as they watched from the audience.

In a moment that moved most in the audience to tears, she paid tribute to her 84-year-old mother, Evelyn “Brandy” Almond, who suffers from dementia.
She said: “I love you, I love you, I love you and I hope if I say this three times, it will magically and perfectly enter into your soul, fill you with grace and the joy of knowing that you did good in this life.”
Fighting back tears, she added: “You’re a great mom. Please take that with you when you’re finally okay to go.”
She appeared to hint at retirement at the close of her speech, saying: “This feels like the end of one era and the beginning of something else – scary and exciting.”
Backstage, Jodie Foster denied she was stepping away from the public eye, adding: “Oh no, I could never stop acting. You’d have to drive me behind a team of horses.”
Jodie Foster publicly hinted at her sexuality for the first time in 2007 when she paid tribute to “my beautiful Cydney” at Women in Entertainment event – referring to her then partner Bernard.
The former couple met on the set of the film Sommersby in 1993 and had two sons.
Jodie Foster has never revealed the identity of the father or the circumstances of their conception.
As with most questions about her personal life, the actress has refused to comment on gossip that the father was an old university friend from Yale, who is also gay.
Jodie Foster landed her first job in a sun cream commercial when she was three years old and appeared in 50 films before she left school, including her shocking breakthrough role as a child prostitute in Taxi Driver with Robert De Niro.
Jodie Foster became one of the most successful adult stars in Hollywood by taking on gutsy roles like rape victim Sarah Tobias in The Accused in 1988 and Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs three years later, both of which won her Best Actress Oscars.
Ben Affleck’s Iran hostage thriller Argo was a surprise best drama winner at this year Golden Globes, beating out the Civil War epic Lincoln, which had emerged as an awards-season favorite.

Shades of pale were the popular trend on the red carpet of Golden Globes 2012, as well as fishtail hems.
There was a certain boring sameness to many of the looks, including Bérénice Bejo’s blue strapless Gucci gown, Freida Pinto’s blue strapless Prada gown and Mila Kunis’ black strapless Dior gown.
But for those who dared to make more unconventional choices, it paid off.
Charlize Theron embodied the stuff of which Hollywood fairy tales are made. Her blush-colored chiffon Dior couture gown, with an oversized bow at the waist and thigh-high slit, was so striking it made one wonder if the French fashion house needs to bother finding a new creative director to replace the fired John Galliano after all, or just keep going with its in-house design team, which did a stellar job in this case. Charlize Theron made another inspired choice in her 1920s Cartier hair band, which, along with Michelle Williams’ Fred Leighton hair band, is sure to spark a major new trend.
Charlize Theron is one of the unconventional gown choices winners
Claire Danes and Kate Winslet picked up on the black-and-white trend that is in fashion at this moment. Claire Danes’ graphic J. Mendel gown was a more modern iteration, while Kate Winslet’s Jenny Packham gown with a black hammered silk top, white column skirt and jeweled grosgrain belt, was old Hollywood at its best.
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s blue-and-white ink splotch Monique Lhuillier ball gown, which she said her 2-year-old had a hand in picking out, was another unconventional choice that paid off. Rooney Mara’s racy black Peter Copping for Nina Ricci gown, with lattice-like straps at the bodice, didn’t disappoint either. If Lisbeth Salander had to go to the Golden Globes, this is what she would wear.
Like black, red is also a perennial red carpet fashion choice. Reese Witherspoon’s fishtail hem Zac Posen gown was a snore, and Dianna Agron’s gown covered in swan cutouts — as cool as it was — overwhelmed her. But Emma Stone showed red done right, with her maroon and fuchsia pleated Lanvin gown with jeweled eagle belt buckle. She looked like a fashion superhero. Lanvin had a big night on the red carpet, dressing Natalie Portman too.
Of course, placement of clothing and jewelry on the red carpet is big business for brands. When Uma Thurman wore that glorious lilac chiffon Prada gown to the Oscars in 1995, it put the Italian design house on the international fashion map and ushered in the modern era of celebrity dressing. It was nice to see Prada back on the red carpet at the Globes, dressing Zooey Deschanel in a green silk gown with an open back and pearl embroidered top. It was a quirky dress, but she’s a quirky girl.
Speaking of product placement, it was the first time when someone plug hair care on the red carpet. Nicole Richie name-dropped Suave Professionals products, along with designer Julien MacDonald, who made her silvery gown, and her own line, House of Harlow, which made her bag. Suave immediately started trending on Twitter. And the untidy ponytail — it was the hairstyle of the night — looked great on her.
