Kate McKinnon parodies Jodie Foster on Saturday Night Live

Golden Globes speech comedy gold for lesbian cast member

Kate McKinnon parodies Jodie Foster on Saturday Night Live
22 January 2013

She’s already nailed an impersonation of Ellen DeGeneres so Saturday Night Live cast member Kate McKinnon tackled another famous lesbian during the show’s most recent episode: Jodie Foster.

McKinnon, who is lesbian herself, mimed comedy gold out of Foster’s Golden Globe Awards speech where she first came out as ‘single’ then kind of came out publicly in a roundabout way without ever saying the words ‘lesbian’ or ‘gay.’

‘I am ga… ame for anything,’ McKinnon teases in Foster fashion. ‘I’m officially a Les… lie Nielsen fan.’

She concludes with: ‘That is such a giant weight off of my lesbian chest.’

Below is video of the impersonation which appears at the four minute mark:
