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 Ms. Foster, 51, has confirmed that the Panic Room star exchanged vows with Ms. Hedison in a low-key ceremony yesterday, reported People magazine. The couple had been dating for about a year.

Before Ms. Hedison, she was in a long-term relationship with Cydney Bernard. The couple, who separated in 2008, co-parented two sons, Charles and Kit.

Ms. Hedison previously dated Ellen DeGeneres for three years.
