In a recent comedy routine in Australia, the numerous and at time rambunctious comedienne Margaret Cho had a bit to say about the sexuality of John Travolta. As reported by Radar Online on Tuesday, Cho openly stated that the actor was gay and she didn’t back down.
Travolta, who is married, has had gay rumors swirling around him for years. Back in May of 2012, the actor was accused by a male masseur of sexual assault, sexual battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. These allegations were denied by Travolta and the case was dropped, but a second and third masseur then made similar claims. If that wasn’t enough, Travolta was then rumored to having a gay affair with his pilot, another rumor denied by the actor.
Cho, however is basing her opinions on her personal associations with Travolta as she has been friends with him since working together in 1997 on the movie set of “Face/Off”.
“He’s not just gay. He doesn’t just like men. He is like Oscar Wilde gay…like Lord Byron gay.”
The open gay activist shocked the Australian crowd, but she didn’t stop there, calling Travolta “flamboyant” and unhappy in his straight life. The actor, known for hit movies such as “Grease”, “Saturday Night Fever” and “Pulp Fiction” has been married since 1991 and had three children.
None of that matters, according to Choo, because she still feels he is “so gay.”
“I feel bad for him, because I know he would be much happier if he could just come out. But he can’t.”
