Hollywood’s Jodie Foster, actor and film director married her girlfriend, photographer Alexandra Hedison.
The marriage was confirmed by a publicist acting on behalf of the actress to a US showbusiness website.
Foster, 51, who had been reluctant to comment on her private life, acknowledged she was gay at the Golden Globes awards last year.
The actress who had two children by IVF had separated from her previous partner, Cydney Bernard, a film producer.
In her Golden Globes speech, she paid tribute to Bernard, whom she described as her “ex-partner in love”.
Foster and Hedison had been seen in each other’s company in Los Angeles on a number of occasions, fuelling speculation about their relationship.
It is understood the pair finally married over the weekend, although the location has not been disclosed.
Ms Hedison, 44, previously had a relationship with the US TV personality, Ellen DeGeneres.
