Kirstie Alley has put an end to the John Travolta gay rumors, once and for all. Ha.
But OK, while the whispers will always persist, Alley has addressed them head-on.
In an interview with The Sun, the longtime Scientologist was asked directly if her close friend and former costar Travolta is gay.
Her answer was a bit strange.
“No I don’t [think he is gay]. I mean, I know him pretty well — and I know the love…” she said before opening up about how the two fell in love but were never physical, as she would never cheat on her then-husband Parker Stevenson, whom she divorced in 1997.
“It wasn’t a sexual relationship because I’m not going to cheat on my husband. But you know I think there are things that are way worse than sexual relationships, than cheating on someone that way.
“I consider what I did even worse because I actually let myself fall in love with him and stay in love with him for a long time.”
Expanding on why a relationship between the two never would have worked, she added: “I go to bed at nine o’clock at night and wake up at five in the morning we basically would have not have seen each other. It would have been a disaster.
“It turned out great because we’ve remained best friends all these years. [He and his wife, Kelly Preston] live next door to me! We’d come through the fence. It’s pretty funny.”
It all sounds rather hilarious, indeed.
In 2014, the actor granted a rare interview about the gay rumors he can’t seem to escape and allegations he had a gay relationship with his former pilot, telling The Daily Beast:
This is every celebrity’s Achilles heel. It’s just about people wanting money. That’s all. It happens on many levels. I don’t care that much about it. Other people may attack it back more than I do, but I let all the media stuff go a long time ago because I can’t control it. I think that’s why it persists, to some degree.
