Jodie Foster is Alexandra "Alex" Hedison's biggest fan!

On Thursday, the two-time Academy Award winner, 61, was all smiles as she supported her wife of nearly a decade during the world premiere of Hedison's short film ALOK at the Sundance Film Festival.

Foster dressed in a black peacoat, worn on top of a patterned back and white collared shirt, and accessorized with a Gucci purse. Hedison wore a velvet jacket in a dark shade of blue with a cream-colored long-sleeve blouse and a floral lapel pin.

According to the festival's website, the film (directed by Hedison, 54) is "a compelling portrait of Alok Vaid-Menon, acclaimed nonbinary author, poet, comedian, and public speaker," and is executive produced by Foster.

Foster previously sang her wife's praises on Wednesday's episode of the Today show, saying she's most proud of "the fact that Alex and ALOK are part of making people better instead of worse."

"I think it's about freedom and being your best self and being free, and I have a lot to learn from it, so I'm excited for her," continued the Nyad actress. "And I can't wait to be there by her side and to have it not be about me."

Hedison and Foster married after a year of dating in April 2014 in a top-secret ceremony, which friends of the newlyweds said was just their style.
