Accepting a Best Actress Tony for Anything Goes, an Emotional Sutton Foster Thanks the Men in Her Life

Accepting a Best Actress Tony for Anything Goes, an Emotional Sutton Foster Thanks the Men in Her Life

'I've never been happier in my life,' said Tony winner Sutton Foster.

“I’ve never been happier in my life, and I’ve never been happier in a job,” Sutton Foster declared when accepting the 2011 Best Actress in a Musical Tony Award for Anything Goes. “All I ever wanted as a little girl was to be a performer.”

Radiant in a Michael Kors strapless gown, Foster saluted her trio of Broadway co-stars (Joel Grey, Colin Donnell and Adam Godley), then became emotional as she thanked the three real-life men in her life: boyfriend (and fellow 2011 Tony nominee) Bobby Cannavale, “who has changed my life,” Cannavale’s 16-year-old son Jake and her soon-to-depart dresser Julien Havard, with whom she has worked on six shows in nine years. Havard, who is apparently headed to Cape Cod to become an artist, got a huge plug for his fledgling career from Foster, who cried as she saluted a special friend and colleague.
