(Newser) – Carrie Fisher opens up about all things gay in an in interview with the Advocate: Being left by babydaddy/CAA superagent Bryan Lourd for another man; the many gay fans who turned out for Wishful Drinking, her Broadway one-woman show; and her old friend John Travolta. Apparently, he can come out of the closet now.

When asked by the Advocate if the actor's legal team has "any business demanding Gawker remove a recent post suggesting that he’s given blow jobs?" Fisher, who the mag notes goes "way back" with Travolta, gave a blunt response: "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."

These are the ramblings of a bitter pseudo-friend, jealous of someone else's success. There are several explainations here, the most obvious is that it's totally fabricated. If there is any truth to it, maybe it was partly due to youthful curiosity. Being involved in acting at a young age, he was undoubtedly exposed to certain things at a very impressionable age (remember 'Welcome Back, Carter'). Regardless of what Carrie Fisher's motives may be, the apparent truth is that he is a happily married man(rare in Hollywood) who has made a lot of very successful movies. He has never put is sexuality on display, even in his movies. Why should this scrutiny be put on him? Jealousy is the obvious answer.

Carrie Fisher had one big moment in her professional career -- that of being Princess Leia in the 3 Star Wars episodes. She spent most of the rest of her time strung out and being turned down at casting calls. If John Travolta is gay, so be it. He, at least, has not flaunted it or thrown it into his fans faces and let us keep the illusion that he and Kelly have a happy marriage. Carrie only has her book to give her a semblance of celebrity any longer and she needs to be in the spotlight. However, Carrie don't do it on other people's backs.
