  1. He just looks like a repressed, older, slightly more plasticy John Barrowman.

    1. I can’t see any cause to insult John Barrowman, who has always been proud of who he is, has spoken out for gay rights many times, and whose CP has been widely and positively covered in the media.

      While Mr Barrowman’s performing style is not to everyone’s taste, I’m glad he’s a member of the LGBT community and I appreciate his willingness to comment on marriage equality.

      Mr Travolta, on the other hand, is an embarrassment to humans of all orientations.

      1. Whoah, sorry for any offense! I absolutely didn’t mean to insult John Barrowman, whose support for LGBTQ+ communities is admirable. I simply said that John Travolta looks a bit like John Barrowman — who happens to be gay. I literally have no idea how it could be interpreted as offensive/insulting and am sorry it has come across that way.

        That was my first post on this website, and this will be my last. My default setting isn’t umbridge, but being positive for the sake of constructivity, and for this reason perhaps the ‘comments’ page here isn’t for me! Sorry again for any offense :)

    2. Oh lighten up people! I can see what Jamie means!

    3. Nah, he just looks like a repressed, older, slightly more plasticy John Travolta to me.

        How can you get any more plasticy than John Barrowman?

    Given that Gotterba was allegedly Travolta’s ex, I’m not entirely sure what he hopes to gain by sueing him…

    Bloody odd if you ask me

    I’m really not that convinced of the case for outing by law suit…

    If the allegations are true it doesn’t really paint Gotterba in a good light does it…

      Money and notoriety. That’s all this is about.

      He ostensibly is suing because he was threatened with a lawsuit regarding a previous money grabbing attempt (writing a tell-all book) which itself seems baffling in its logic.

  3. Yawn.

  4. Passion is inevitably followed by greed when dealing with rich movie stars, it would seem.

  5. So. Anyway. I’m chief fire officer at my work. (quite a big company), my training and experience tells me there is no smoke without fire….certainly not in this case…

    1. Spanner1960 5 Dec 2012, 1:45am

      That’s a lousy turn of phrase.
      I smoke cigarettes that have plenty of smoke without fire.
      It only takes some sad little sh|t with a grudge to label a celeb gay/lesbian/drunk/wife beater/child molester and the press has a field day based on total hearsay and conjecture.Then the likes of you come out with this bullsh|t about “no smoke without fire” where you haven’t so much as a shred of evidence to support such a claim.

    “…the Grease icon…”

    :-0

  7. Older Hollywood stars who have lived their lives in the closet are now caught by their own lies as the US becomes more tolerant.

    As long as they don’t come out, they look ridiculous and are increasingly unemployable, at least in big movies. But if they do come out, the years of deceit will become undeniable and may be hard for the few remaining fans to forgive.

    Even so, the pros and cons seem to me to come down heavily on the side of openness. I expect at least one older A-lister will come out discreetly in the next few years.

    There are persistent rumours, though, that a cult to which several actors in this position belong is strongly discouraging those men from coming out.

    I wonder if these rumours might even be true. The actors in question would likely recover – might even thrive – from a well-managed bout of openness. But the cult to which they attached their names would surely become a laughing stock – particularly if it is revealed to have colluded in closeting.

  8. Looks like Travolta is having a certain amount of success dismissing these other claims. Like Michael Jackson, he can put up an expensive fight.
    But why doesn’t he just say “You know what? I AM Gay. Big deal. Let’s move along now.”

    1. When situations like this arise with well known people in entertainment or politics the possibility of bisexuality is rarely mentioned? It seems they are either straight of closeted gay?

      1. I meant “or” closeted gay. Typo.

      2. Spanner1960 5 Dec 2012, 1:37am

        Because bisexuality is a almost always a myth put forward by those unable to handle admitting they are gay?

    2. Why? Maybe he feels his wife and fairly young children mightn’t be too keen on the fuss that’d ensue?

  9. Who cares, this is about money that’s all.

    Please, please, please don’t let it be true that John Travolta (or Tom Cruise for that matter) be gay. Don’t we have enough crap to put up with as it is?

    1. The straight people have Anne Widicombe (sp?) John Prescott, that man with the sideburns who picks his nose and talks about horses and Chuck Norris. So even if you do have those two on your team you’re still winning

      1. Anne Widicombe is asexual isn’t she, she claims to be a virgin anyway.

    2. Spanner1960 5 Dec 2012, 1:38am

      Why not? They fit the stereotypes: Big headed, vain, narcissistic, egotistical and selfish.
      They both sound like they would fit perfectly into gay society.

      1. As oppose to non-gay society?

        1. *opposed

  11. Oh, I can hardly wait…”Tom Cruise Come Out Of The Closet!” Must be something in the water they drink at the Church of Scientology?

  12. So what if he had gay affairs in the past, so what if he’s bisexual or gay? It’s no-one else’s business to be outing another person who clearly wants his private life to remain private.

    1. If you purport to be straight married man you shouldn’t have all these allegations swirling around you, Hollywood star or not.

  13. What the hell is this; a reverse witch hunt? Why not just leave the man alone; its his business and nobody else’s. This is gay hypocrisy of the worst kind. We condemn bullying but we have no qualms about bullhying others to prove a point.

    1. It’s about the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. The suit is asking for a Declatory Relief. The original document not MONEY people. There were exhibits that are included in the case by my Counsil Robert Sanger of Santa Barbara. The court is asked to look at them to see if they are real and valid. I stand for my rights as a human. Remember this story was broke by other people and not me in the National Enquire. I never had any intent after 30 years to come out with this story I kept Secret, Give me a break here. I the one who was bullied by his attourney with threatening letters of being sued. Now I am not backing away. Screw the 15 minuets of FAME… WTF would I want that. I am a very (was) private person. If the big bad wolf comes after you, what are you going to do? Stand there like a Sheep? It is easy to sit here a critize people but read the Law Suit first. Get the facts. Now that it is public I want everyone to know the TRUTH! Screw the money..

  14. It’s about my Freedom of Speech. The suit is asking for a Declatory Relief not MONEY. ONLY the original document There were exhibits that are included in the case by my Counsil .The court is asked to look at them to see if they are real and valid or FAKE. I stand for my rights as a human. Remember this story was broke by other people and not me in the National Enquire. I never had any intent after 30 years to come out with this story to a Tabloid, I kept it Secret, Give me a break here. I’m the one who was bullied by his attourney with threatening letters of being sued. Why has he not sued me? Ask yourself. Only Threats.I will not back down. Screw the 15 minuets of FAME…I was his boy toy FGS 6 years. I am(was) a very private person. If the big bad wolf comes after you, what are you going to do? Stand there like a Sheep? It is easy to sit here a critize people but read the Law Suit first. Get the facts. Now that it is public everyone should know the TRUTH! Screw the money

  15. Why is is the CIA behind these gay rumors about John and Why does the CIA want to destroy Johns career?

    Once again it’s only because he’s famous and has got a few quid. Who are these gits who suck and tell? Without merit. Leave the poor chap alone. Who cares anyway? Piffle and tosh.
