Jodie has mocked the gossip around her sexuality in the past, most notably at the 2013 Golden Globes. “I just have the sudden urge to say something I’ve never really been able to air in public… But I’m just going to put it out there right, loud and proud, I’m going to need your support on this. I am…single,” she joked. Now there is no doubt left!
