(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."
