You ain’t fooling nobody Johnny T.
Accusations of improper booty play and harassment have put John Travolta’s personal life under the microscope and through the wringer in recent months. The star, who has long been dogged by rumors about his sexuality, is facing numerous lawsuits from men, many of them masseurs, who claim he made inappropriate passes, financial offers and other attempts to secure sexual contact with them.
Travolta, until recently, has remained silent on the charges, several weeks ago he denied one of the claims but others in Hollyweird, like Joan Rivers and Carrie Fisher, have been more than happy to sound off on the possibility that the “Saturday Night Fever” actor is gay.
Now Rashida Jones, star of “The Office” and the upcoming film “Celeste And Jesse Forever,” is joining the choir of voices who want Travolta to come out.
In a recent interview Jones, along with friend and “Celeste And Jesse Forever” co-writer Will McCormack, discusses the need for more openly gay actors before addressing Travolta:
McCormack: There needs to be, like, a professional athlete that comes out.
Jones: And a movie star! It’s time.
McCormack: Yeah, like a big one.
Jones: A movie star. Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this.
Welp! Might be time for Johhny boy to come out the glitter filled man-hole of a closet after all.
