Jodie Foster is reportedly dating Ellen DeGeneres' ex, photographer Alexandra Hedison—and sources say the relationship is getting so serious that Foster has given up alcohol, because Hedison is a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for more than 10 years. Foster "joined Alcoholics Anonymous and has embraced a 12-step program," one source tells Star, according to Radar. "Now they are both sober ... Alex has no reservations about spending their lives together." But she wants Foster to be sober for at least a year before they get married, the source adds.

Hedison, 44, who dated DeGeneres from 2001 to 2004, reportedly had a hard time watching Ellen drink as she tried to resist the temptation. Foster "refuses to make the same mistake," the source says. "She’s finally found the woman of her dreams, so giving up alcohol was nothing for her. ... They're crazy in love." But last month, the National Enquirer reported that DeGeneres warned Foster off of marrying Hedison, over fears Foster would be taken advantage of, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry and the International Business Times. But "Jodie could not care less," says one source. "She thinks Ellen is a fool for letting a good catch get away." (More Jodie Foster stories.)
