Jodie Foster marries Ellen DeGeneres` former girlfriend

Los Angeles: Hollywood star Jodie Foster has tied the knot with Alexandra Hedison, who is the former girlfriend of celebrity talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

A representative of Foster, 51, has confirmed that the `Panic Room` star exchanged vows with Hedison in a low-key ceremony yesterday, reported People magazine.

The couple had been dating for about a year.

Foster has been a private person but she opened up a bit about her personal life when giving an acceptance speech at the 2013 Golden Globes.

Before Hedison, Foster was in a longterm relationship with Cydney Bernard.

The couple, who separated in 2008, co-parented two sons, Charles and Kit. Hadison previously dated Ellen DeGeneres for three years.
