Mel Gibson is at the center of speculation that he could be the biological father of Jodie Foster’s sons.
Jodie thanked Gibson for his support during her emotional speech at the Golden Globe awards last weekend, while many couldn’t help but notice her son’s resemblance to the actor.
Jodie Foster has two sons -Charles, 14, and Kit, 12, – and has never revealed who fathered her children.
Foster and 57-year-old actor Mel Gibson have been friends for years after starring together in “Maverick” in 1994.
They worked together again in the film “The Beaver” in 2011.
Mel Gibson and Jodie are so close that she referenced him in her Globes speech, saying, “Mel Gibson – you know you saved me too.”
Jodie’s speech wasn’t the first time she has spoke fondly of the “Braveheart” star.
In 2011, she said of Gibson, “He’s so incredibly loving and sensitive, he really is. He is the most loved actor I have ever worked with on a movie. And he’s not saintly, and he’s got a big mouth, and he’ll do gross things your nephew would do. But I knew the minute I met him that I would love him the rest of my life.”
Gibson is already the father of eight children, seven kids with his ex-wife Robyn, and one daughter Lucia with his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
Jodie Foster has previously stated she won’t reveal the identity of her sons’ biological father until they turn 21.
There has been speculation that Jodie’s late director friend Randy Stone, who was openly gay, could be the father.
Randy died in 2007 following a battle with heart disease.
His mother, the Rev. Beverly Bates, recently said, “Randy told me that Jodie said she’ll tell the boys who their father is when they’re 21. He told me he had to sign documents. It was a secret he took to his grave.”
