Rashida Jones tells John Travolta to ‘come out’

By Tribute on August 14, 2012 | 10 Comments

In recent months, John Travolta’s personal and sexual life has been scrutinized following sexual harassment accusations. Rumors about his sexuality resurfaced after the star faced numerous lawsuits from men who claim the actor made inappropriate passes and financial offers in order to gain sexual contact. Travolta’s lawyer has denied all charges. However, Hollywood stars are open about the possibility that the Saturday Night Fever actor is gay. Actress Rashida Jones, star of The Office, told SpinningPlatters.com in an interview that there’s a need for more openly gay actors. “A movie star. Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this,” the actress said before adding, “Big stars need to come out. Ricky Martin was huge. That was big; I was really happy about that… People are so precious about their careers.” Recently several big stars have admitted to being gay, including Anderson Cooper, The Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons and singer Frank Ocean. ~Isabelle Khoo

    Poor John, I don’t care if he’s gay but it’s horrible if he’s lying to his wife and kids.

    Not only does he need to come out, he also needs to stop being involved with the Church of Scientology, the organization that’s keeping him (and Tom Cruise) from being gay.

    Leave the man alone. Who cares if he’s gay or not. Whether it’s true or false – leave him and his family alone to deal with it. That’s what I think.

    What career?

    I can see Jim Parsons as gay. Maybe they will incorporate that in the Big Bang plots. Cause Amy Farrah Fowler isn’t getting any and I think she also has lesbian tendancies, so why not?! She can be bi, and he will be gay and everything is pretty much covered.
    As for Travolta and Cruise for that matter. Who knows if all the complaints were money grabs. And really, maybe they are open for bi-curious relations or straight up coming out. If Scientology is holding them back, that’s one thing but I doubt it. I think it’s marriages and kids etc…

    No matter what I stil love John Travolta!!!

    Guys seriously trust me lol Travolta And Cruise are not gay. Maybe Bi-Curious in some twisted dark secrete maybe but their not gay. One things for sure Scientology is totally screwed up and they should both run for the hills on that one.

    Did he frame a poster of the band Asia?

    C-Dub it would be interesting if they worked Parons’s affinity for men into Big Bang Theory – but I’m not too sure about your women-who-like-women-liking-men-who-like-men. I mean, why would they?
