John Travolta is Gay, Carrie Fisher Says

by at . Comments

John Travolta is gay and it's no secret - just ask Carrie Fisher.

Travolta has been followed by gay rumors and reports since the late 1980s, always denying them and often enlisting a team of lawyers to take action.

But Fisher, most famous for her iconic portrayals of Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy, tells The Advocate that her old friend is ... well ...

Carrie and John go way back, but is she telling it like it is?

The Advocate asks: “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?”

Her response: “Wow! I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry he’s uncomfortable with it, that’s all I can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind of legal fuss."

This isn't her first such comment about Travolta, either.

In a 2009 Advocate interview, Fisher lists among 10 Things Gay Men Should Know About Women that “We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.”

Travolta was first publicly called gay by porn star Paul Barresi who gave an 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, welcoming a son with wife Kelly Preston.

The latest of alleged Travolta paramours, Robert Randolph, recently came forward to tell the National Enquirer about the star's "secret gay life."

Randolph's new book has drawn heavy fire from Travolta’s legal team as the author alleges to have direct knowledge of Travolta's gay dalliances.

Do you think he's gay? Does it even matter?

UPDATE, 5/11/2012: This topic is receiving renewed interest, clearly, in the wake of the sexual assault allegations against the actor by three men.

Dear God, please don't let this be true. I have been a fan of his since I was a kid and Welcome Back Kotter was on the air. I just can't accept him as a Bone Smoker! It is a huge dissapointment. I still like him though, it's just ugly and I feel for his beautiful wife Kelly.

I believe that JT is a strong, compassionate and kind person and if he were gay he would be true to himself and come out. That being said, I think he is a wonderful actor and appreciate him as such!

HI EVERYBODY, MY NAME IS JOSE. WELL I DON'T REALLY KNOW JOHN PERSONALLY BUT IN MY OWN WORDS I LIKE TO SAY THAT JOHN TRAVOLTA HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST GREAT ACTORS IN THE WORLD. I USED TO WATCH ALL HIS MOVIES WHEN I WAS A KID GROWING UP IN THE 80S. I THINK HE'S A GOOD MAN AND PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE RESPECT FOR OTHERS! DON'T YOU THINK? AND I DO NOT THINK JOHN IS GAY YOU KNOW WHY? CAUSE ACTUALLY THE DEFINITION OF THAT WORD REALLY MEANS THAT HE IS A HAPPY MAN BECAUSE HE ALSO HAS A WIFE AND HIS KIDS. SO, I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD LEAVE HIM ALONE!

I believe that John is a good father and husband.Of course Kelley knows that he is gay and she must be okay with it or she would not be with him likewise Katie and Tom. Big deal. It is none of our business. How would any of us like to have our love lives known to the public.

I saw John Travolta in the mid 80s at a popular cafe off of Hollywood and Vine I think. And guess what, his eyes were definitely going to the ladies NOT the guys. Sorry gents the eyes don't lie. He was by himself and there were no paparazzi or media around so this wasn't for anyone's benefit. And I saw him get up and leave with one of the most gorgeous girls in there so...
He's married now and this was before he got married to Kelly.
But he was definitely a lover of pretty girls from what I saw and if you have ever dated a gay, which I have, the first and foremost way you find out is who their eyes stray to when they think no one is looking. Trust me on this.
