John Travolta’s sexuality questioned by Carrie Fisher

HollywoodNews.com: Does Princess Leia out Vinnie Barbarino in a new interview with ‘The Advocate’?
You be the judge!
Carrie Fisher, whose HBO special ‘Wishful Drinking’ premieres on Sunday, chats with Brandon Voss about a host of things but here is the part of the Q&A that is getting everybody’s attention today:
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.
