LOS ANGELES — Oscar winning actress Jodie Foster had another woman lined up when she and her partner of 14 years, Cydney Bernard called it quits. Foster, 45, met and fell for screenwriter Cynthia Mort, 51, on the set of the vigilante flick, The Brave One in 2007 and has been seeing her ever since, according to a report by The National Enquirer.
News of Foster�s split from Bernard, 54, rocked the industry and now the Enquirer has reported in an "exclusive" that the couple is still living uncomfortably under the same roof, although the relationship has been �shattered.�
Foster�s latest love interest, Cynthia Mort, is a screenwriter and producer who�s worked on shows such as Will and Grace and Roseanne. Recently Mort executive produced HBO�s one-hour relationship drama, Tell Me You Love Me, on which her ex-partner, thirtysomething�s Melanie Mayron was a director.
Since the pair became involved on the set of Foster�s 1994 film Sommersby, Foster and Bernard have raised two sons together, Charles, 9, and Kit, 6. The father of the two boys has never been identified.
While the only public mention of the couple's relationship came last December at a Hollywood awards� breakfast when Foster acknowledged Bernard saying, �To my beautiful Cydney who sticks by me through the rotten and the bliss,� both women have worn matching �eternity� rings on their wedding fingers for several years.
Mort also has two children that she shares with Mayron. The ex-partners, who�ve remained friendly, live in separate homes on the same Los Angeles street.
Oscar winnning actress for Silence of the Lambs and The Accused, Foster will move into one of her Hollywood homes while Bernard resides in another, according to the Enquirer.
�They�ll continue to raise the boys together and try to keep a loving family unit despite their breakup," a source close to the couple said. Gay Link Content
