Jodie Foster offered the longest, most ambiguous speech of all Sunday night at the 2013 Golden Globes Awards.

During the 70th Annual Golden Globes, Jodie Foster was awarded with the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement award. A flashback of Foster's roles was played on the screens as the actress accepted her award for a lifelong career that was filled with success.

The actress' speech afterwards, however, left some guests and home viewers scratching their heads. Foster began her speech by announcing that she is 50 years old.

"I'm fifty, I'm fifty," the actress screamed out.

 "While I'm here being all confessional I guess I have the sudden urge to say something I've never really been able to air in public. A declaration that I'm nervous about," Foster said on stage. "I'm just going to put it out there loud and proud … I am single."

Foster then went on to talk about "coming out" and the lack of privacy in Hollywood.

"You guys may be surprised," she said. "But I am not Honey Boo Boo Child. I'm sorry. I never was. That's just not me."

Foster then went on to thank "one of the deepest loves of my life, my heroic coparent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life, Cydney Bernard...Thank you Cyd, I am so proud of our modern family," she said.

Just afterwards, she announced that she would never be on stage again, prompting some to believe that she was retiring and giving up her acting career.

Despite the ambiguous speech, fans responded with nothing but positive support for the actress. A number added their "deep respect" for her as a person, and her career. Others said that she had given an "amazing speech" that was full of "depth."
