Carrie Fisher Has Been Trying to Help John Travolta For Years


As she already said: 'We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.'

We were thinking about John Travolta's latest lawsuit and remembered that the always pithy Carrie Fisher had tuned us into this YEARS ago. Remember when The Advocate interviewed Fisher in 2010? They referenced something Fisher had told us a year earlier. Check out this segment from that interview:

In the September 2009 issue of Out, you participated in its monthly Can I Be Blunt? column by sharing 10 things that gay men should know about straight women. One of those things was, "We don't really care that John Travolta is gay." I know you and Travolta go way back, so let's get really blunt here: Does his legal team have any business demanding Gawker remove a recent post suggesting that he's given blow jobs?
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.

So, maybe this latest alleged sex scandal proves: When you're in the closet, you act out in despicable ways. Just listen to Fisher, she knows what she's talking about.
