Jodie Foster marries Alexandra Hedison

(CNN) — Surprise! Jodie Foster's now a

married woman.

The actress and filmmaker quietly tied the knot

with her girlfriend Alexandra Hedison over the

weekend, a rep for Foster confirmed to CNN.

According to E! Online, which first reported

the news, Foster and Hedison had been dating

for almost a year. The entertainment site took

note of the relationship last September after

photos surfaced of Foster spending time with

Hedison, a photographer/actress and an ex-

girlfriend of Ellen DeGeneres.

No other details are yet available about

Hedison and Foster's nuptials, although we

won't hold our breath: Foster is notoriously

private about her personal life . At the 2013

Golden Globes, she declined to give a "big

coming out speech" as she accepted her Cecil

B. DeMille award, saying that she'd already

come out to those close to her.

"I already did my coming out about a

thousand years ago, back in the stone age,"

Foster said. "If you had been a public figure

from the time that you were a toddler, if you

had to fight for a life that felt real and honest

and normal against all odds, then maybe then

you too might value privacy above all else."

In that speech, Foster expressed gratitude to

her former partner Cydney Bernard, with

whom she has two sons.
