Jodie Foster is "totally in love" with actress-photographer Alexandra Hedison, unnamed sources told E! News Monday.
"It's pretty serious," the source said.
Hedison dated Ellen Degeneres from 2001 to 2004, shortly after she broke up with Anne Heche. She also played Dylan Moreland on Showtime's "The L Word."
In a rambling acceptance speech at the Golden Globes last January, Foster said she came out "about a thousand years ago back in the stone age," and thanked her ex Cydney Bernard. Foster and Bernard ended their 20-year relationship in 2008.
E! said Foster and Hedison got the rumor mill churning when they attended a Fox Studios technology seminar in the summer.
