The Advocate recently interviewed Carrie Fisher, and as well as talking about her new solo HBO show, she casually dished about John Travolta, who has recently made headlines for a Gawker article that suggested that Travolta has a secret gay sex life in Los Angeles spas.
Travolta’s lawyers branded the allegations “blatant defamatory lies” from a “patently unreliable source” and called for “the publication of an unequivocal and prominent retraction of the false and defamatory statements,” following the claims.
The Advocate asked Fisher, who is a long-time friend of the actor, about the rumors. She said, “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.”
