Everyone knows Travolta is gay, says Carrie FisherDecember 12th, 2010 - 4:17 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 12 (ANI): Actress Carrie Fisher has fuelled rumours that John Travolta is gay.
Travolta has been followed by gay rumors and reports since the late 1980s. He has always denied them and has enlisted his legal team to help squelch them.
Now in a new interview with The Advocate, Fisher - who’s good friends with the Hollywood star - discussed Travolta’s sexuality and why she thinks he’s still in the closet.
The interviewer asked: “I know you and Travolta go way back, so let’s get really blunt here: Does his (Travolta’s) legal team have any business demanding Gawker remove a recent post suggesting that he’s given (bleep) jobs?”
Fisher answered: “Wow! I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind of legal fuss. Just leave it be.”
The Advocate also notes that in 2009 Fisher gave this statement for a piece about 10 Things gay men should know about women: “We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.”
Travolta was first publicly called gay by porn star Paul Barresi who gave a tell-all interview about an alleged gay relationship with Travolta in the 1980s.
He later recanted that story and subsequently said the story was true. Other men have come forward alleging sexual contact with John, who recently became a father again with wife Kelly Preston giving birth to son Benjamin.
The actor has raised eyebrows with his behavior, including kissing male staff members on the lips. But beyond that there have been consistent and numerous allegations by men who say the actor either pursued them sexually or indulged in gay sexual acts.
A new book has drawn heavy fire from Travolta’s legal team as the author alleges to have direct knowledge of Travolta leading a secret gay life. (ANI)
