But after winning an award at a Women in Entertainment breakfast, she broke her taboo to thank "my beautiful Cydney". Her emotional speech brought tears to the eyes of some of her audience at the Beverly Hills Hotel, revealing a vulnerable side to a star who has long resisted calls from gay rights activists to clarify her personal life. Miss Foster, 44, a double Oscar winner, praised her film producer partner Cydney Bernard "who sticks with me through all the rotten and the bliss". The couple met on the set of the film Sommersby in and are raising two sons, Charles, nine, and Kit, six, at their Malibu home.
