Greasing The Gay Rumors...

Travolta’s Whispered Sexuality

John Travolta recently garnered a Golden Globe for his Hairspray performance. And, as happens, a number of the actor’s friends decided to throw him a little bash, where Travolta made friends with his Broadway alter ego:

One highlight was when Travolta met Max Crumm, the young actor starring in Grease in the role Travolta made famous in film.

According to a spy, Crumm “planted himself right next to Mama Turnblad and was there through the end of the night.”

Quipped another guest: “Well, guess we know what John is doing later tonight.”

Corrupting a young up-and-coming actor, perhaps?

    Well, that’s exactly how I would use *my* celebrity, had I any…

    Shit! They handed out the Golden Globes already—and only Belonsky was there to see it!

    Will Smith is being recruited by Tom Cruise – why can’t Travolta see some action?

    While I have a close friend who was a chorus boy on Broadway at the same time Travolta was who says you never heard a word about John’s sexuality, the fact that he’s a scientologist – scientolgy recently being describe as a dating service for closeted gay celebrities – makes me give credence to the rumors. As for Will Smith – for an action hero he is married to a woman who is butcher than he is. And his protestations about the same-sex kiss in Six Degrees Of Separation makes me wonder if the lady doth protesteth too much.

    The only bad thing in Hairspray was Travolta’s performance. Those silly Golden Globes.

    Nope. Hauslaib musta been there, too, or he’d have nailed that little “nomination” up where it belongs. Makes you wonder if the writers read the comments, don’t it.

    My gaydar is pretty good and I always felt Travolta was Gay. And obviously, being married to a woman or dating women is no guarantee someone is straight – Richard Chamberlain, Larry Craig, Merv Griffin, Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter…..
