Ruh-roh. Carrie Fisher has a new interview in the latest issue of The Advocate, and the lady is trying to take down John Travolta. Oh, this is so rich. Apparently, Carrie has talked about Travolta being ALLEGEDLY gay before – in 2009, she said in an interview “We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.” When asked about that old quote, Carrie had some interesting stuff to say about Travolta getting nailed in spas from here to Australia (not really). She also talks about being married to a gay man and having a gay ghost:
ADV: In the September 2009 issue of Out, you participated in their 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?
CF: 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.
ADV: When explaining that your ex-husband (CAA superagent Bryan Lourd) once blamed your codeine abuse on pushing him toward other men, you joke in Wishful Drinking that you have the power to turn men gay. These are funny quips, but they’ve also turned into headlines that some readers make take seriously. So just to clarify for those who believe that being gay is a choice, do you and Bryan know that he was always gay and that you had nothing to do with it?
CF: Well, we don’t talk about it much, but yes, I should think that he was always gay and probably always knew it. I can only really talk about my part of it, up to a point, but he’s been a very good father — and mother — to Billie.
ADV: I’ve read that you’ve felt haunted by [gay friend R. Gregory Stevens] ghost. I’d think a gay ghost would be pretty fabulous to have lurking around.
CF: No, it wasn’t a bad thing. It was amusing. Things started to go off in my house. You know those little boxes that you push the buttons and they go, “F-ck you,” “Eat sh-t,” “You’re an a–hole”? I had one of those, and it would start to go off, on its own, in the middle of the night. So if that wasn’t Greg… I mean, I don’t think it was [past resident of my Beverly Hills home] Edith Head, do you?
[From The Advocate]
The legal stuff The Advocate is referring to is Travolta’s legal team sending out a “blistering missive” to Gawker, after Gawker printed a salacious, hilarious and raunchy interview with Robert Randolph, author of You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again, about the closeted gay culture of Hollywood. Randolph specifically called out Travolta as being a spa “bottom” who prefers dark, swarthy men. Methinks this whole controversy isn’t Travolta’s first experience with “blistering missives”. And Carrie better watch her ass too, because a missive is coming her way.
