18 of 18Most Puzzling Speech
Robert Downey Jr.'s presentation of this year's Cecil B. DeMille Award to Jodie Foster is bizarre enough — it includes Mel Gibson handing her a bunch of hamster stuffed animals tied together on a silver platter — but then Foster herself takes the stage and one-ups him. After much tongue-in-cheek buildup, Foster openly addresses her sexuality, acknowledging that she "came out" years ago and makes an impassioned plea for fans and the media to allow celebrities their privacy. The camera pans to show several audience members with tears in their eyes, but we're partly left scratching our heads.
