"John Travolta and Ellen are very old people. How would you expect them to look dumbshit?"
Travolta is 58. DeGeneres is 54. If you consider that "very old" then you're the "dumbshit", dumbshit.
John Travolta begged Penny Marshall for the lead in Big but she thought he was box office poison.
r5, when you are older than 25 you are already dead and ancient to the gay world and you better not humiliate yourself even further by trying to cover up your ancient old age in Ambercrombie and Fitch clothes.
John Travolta and his silly glass closet clase status is repulsive to any gay man, but he is even more disgusting to the shallow fraction of the gay community who is all about 'shame, shame, shame, he wasn't out when he was still pretty! Now nobody wants him!'.
Duh, Abercrombie and Fitch. No Amber Alert here!
Did Ellen ask him why he's still hiding in the closet?
He's so gross.
Johnny looks good, not crazy about the hair but he's slimmed down
Did Ellen give him a big wink when asking about his "wife" Kelly?
"Johnny looks good, not crazy about the hair but he's slimmed down"
He has been looking a lot thinner recently. New bf?
R11 video shows John walking ape-like with hair so weird. Olivia looks great.
If I were a huge closet case who wanted to be fawned over by a colossal phony on tv, I would head straight for Ellen also.
his poor daughter inherited his fat gene.
Obviously by now, people know he's bisexual. Why does he have to announce it to you?
Back when Travolta was claiming Jet wasn't autistic his brother, who has Aspergers, was advocating for the spectrum disorder. So it is safe to assume dimple chin carries the gene. Johnny Boy chose not to aid the cause and raise awareness but to shun it. Says all you need to know about him.
"Obviously by now, people know he's bisexual. Why does he have to announce it to you?"
His PR person denied that he is gay OR bisexual.
And if he's so bisexual, where are the stories about him sexually harrassing FEMALES?
He's straight and happily married, folks! When will you people figure it out?!?
Has anyone ever asked him if he is gay?
Ellen? Oprah? Rosie? Just ask him and be done with it. He might surprise us all with an honest answer.
"Moment By Moment"!
How very fucking dare you insult my friend like that, r15?!
Ryan S. is dating J. Huff, no? Her brother Dereck is on DWTS also dating female, no?
A 10 from Len!
John never washes his hole always has stank

He mentioned that Jett was autistic and died of a seizure today on Ellen. All his procedes are going to awareness.
r1, that was pretty awful. I think he was pretty much talking his way through that song.
r16 - I wonder if the daughter started eating to avoid getting pimped out for PR? It's got to be tough - the death of her brother, her father's embarrassing habits, the replacement baby and possible phony pregnancy. And then there's the whole cult thing.
What's with John's chin pubes?
We all know Ellen's a whore, but how the hell could the audience sit through his segment without scornfully rolling their eyes?
John is about as gay as Olivia Newton-John
Well then Olivia must be gay then, because he sure as hell is.
Well put, Fiona @ R20. I could not have said it any better. I've got a vacation coming up and perhaps you could cover Datalounge for me!
When word got out Jet had medical problems Xenu told them to say it was Kawasaki Syndrome, not autism.
He wouldn't look so hideous if his hair wasn't dyed coal black. He looks like an old G.I. Joe doll with fuzzy "lifelike" hair. And Olivia's face is pulled so tight with a facelift, cheek implants, or botox or heaven knows what else) that she looks like a cartoon of herself. Neither would be so bad looking if they'd just age gracefully and not try so hard looking "young."
Olivia's lipstick was too bright red, it just made her skin look even more pale. And yes Revolta would look better at least, without that ridiculous hair.
Hey Olivia has cancer and maybe a dead boyfriend who's in hiding. And she gave birth to an ugly kid and has proven to be a rotten mother.
Cut her some slack.
He's super revolta, now.
I like Olivia, I just thought she done her makeup better.
Grease is the word.
Travolta is quite simian looking. I know he's only in his mid 50's but he really looks like and escapee from Planet of the Apes.
Why all this trashing? It's way too mean.
Travolta's making homosexuality look shameful by hiding in his glass closet, and that makes him a douchebag. Plus he's lost any semblance of sex appeal. Unattractive closet-cases have the option of retiring and staying out of the public eye, otherwise they deserve what they get.
Typical 'mo behavior, if he was in the closet and hot, you'd all be making excuses for him.
No r48, if he'd had the dignity to come out when it became obvious, he'd have more people here willing to ignore that he's fug. He's getting deservedly ripped for his cowardice.
The sexual life of a man or a woman belongs to them only. What's your problem? Life is not only frou frou, party and porn.
Nobody has the right to force someone else to come out. Nobody knows what's going on in somebody else's mind and heart.
Privacy is one of the privileges we have in this life. Let's not violated it out of a whim.
Homosexuality should not be considered as politics. It's something personal for each person. If you want to come out, come out, that's nice. But if you don't wish to come out, that's your own business and nobody else's. It's your life after all.
The employment rate will be unchanged or go up but of course it had nothing to do with President Welfare Obama lying last month to get reelected
Travota's free to stay in his glass closet, and everyone is free to say what they think about it. If you don't like it, tough shit.
R53 sometimes words are cheap...
And sometimes they're right on the money, R54.
That's not privacy, that's hypocrisy.
Plus, you're on the wrong site for your patronising sermons.
R56, why there have to be sides?
I don't preach, i just say how i feel.
By the way hypocrisy exists either you choose to come out or not. Hypocrisy is something complicated and deep-rooted. Sometimes it's positive and it may save a situation, some other times it's detrimental...
Coming out is not the most sincere thing one can do. It takes much more for someone to be sincere deep in their heart and to others.
Bla, bla, bla
'A Love Song for Bobby Long', what a nice movie!
People watch it, if you haven't already.
I liked Travolta a lot in this role. \t
"Nobody has the right to force someone else to come out."
He has the right to lie about his sexuality. But he doesn't have the right to make the media lie for him.
He's definitely a liar.
I think he is a nice guy. Why you all bitching about him? Leave him be. God!
There's nothing more horrible than being known as gay. I'll lie and lie and lie and lie, until my dying breath, to protect my horrible secret from being known!!!!
He is not gay. He made a family. He is probably bisexual. He doesn't have to give us details about his sexuality, does he?
Fraus are really mentally retarded.
Guys, i don't understand why all this lack of understanding?
John Travolta unlike Tom Cruise is stable to his family and obviously he is a sweet man that he doesn't care only for his passing fancies.
He chooses his family over anything else.
If he is gay or bisexual that's his business and his family's, not ours. We can't force no one to state something they don't want to state. Only criminals should be forced to reveal their crimes and Travolta is not a criminal.
We hope something very bad happens to Miss Travolta.
We hope nothing bad happens to anyone but at the same time we really hope people had the balls to be true to themselves.
Where can we buy that book by Miss Randolph?
Sometimes by being discreet you are true to yourself and to others.
At least he's a good dad, not like that mess ONJ turned out. What an awful mom she is
He's not discreet, he's dishonest.
r50, the problem isn't closeting in general, but the type of closeting a person engages in.
If you want to be closeted in hollywood, that's perfectly fine. As long as you don't choose to do something shitty like beard or pretend to be hetero, engage in fake dating etc.
If you want to be closeted and do it in a quiet respectful way, that's fine.
Here are some examples. Egregious, obnoxious closet cases: Travolta (fake marriage), Kate Walsh (fake marriage, boyfriend perfume), Luke Evans (was gay, now famous and 'straight').
Non obnoxious closet cases: Matt Bomer(never faked a het relationship when he was closeted), Anderson Cooper (obnoxious for other reasons, but never faked a het relationship), Piper Perabo (never faked a het relationship in the press, even when she got her own show)
Do you see the difference r50. There is closeted, and then there is asshole closeted, a la Travolta. He deserves to be called out. And for being a part of an anti-gay organization, Scientology.
I honestly was surprised when he gave that autism charity a shout-out at the end and referenced his son having autism. I thought the church's bottom line was that autism doesn't exist, and it's thetans or some shit.
I totally disagree. All closeted people are liars. End of it.
What's the difference between lee Pace and Luke Evans? At least Luke Evans was honest, in the past.
He is NOT in the glass closet. He's in a regular old closet. There's a difference! He is in a fake marriage and has denied being gay, that is NOT Glass Closet.
Not all are liars r78. Living their life without making themselves a constant clown for attention does not make (glass closet) liars.
You are one of those who demand everyone gets labled and gets in front of Time magazine cover, just for your entertainment. Just because they are gay doesn't mean they have to please you and your rules. How egotistical.
Liars are liars. End of it.
The problem with the closet is this:
If Obama said, he was white, he's be a racist. If Obama said he was black it's OK.
Why? He's just as much white as he is black?
It's like Nancy Reagan who lied about her age and then insists it's true, when every record indicates she's a liar.
It's not only dishonest but it shows how stupid you are.
You nailed it.
"What's the difference between lee Pace and Luke Evans? At least Luke Evans was honest, in the past."
Well, to my knowledge Lee Pace has never been asked about his sexuality. If you asked him "Are you gay?" it is possible he would say yes. That is different from people like Luke Evans who beard or lie.
Do you really believe it? I don't.
There really are no words for the way his hair looks right now.
[quote]Liars are liars. End of it.
No that's not the end of it. If a celebrity "lies" to the audience, who the fuck cares, we don't know them. They're a personality and they can choose to present whatever personality they want. Of course it's up to the audience to decide if they like them based on that.
If they lie to people they know like coworkers and family then that's a different story.
The thing is, a lot of people still go to see Travolta's movies and that would lead him to believe that he's still in demand while he's closeted. Maybe if he's passe' then he might come out of the closet.
R80 spoke wisely. You chose to go beyond that people, that's your problem and your issue.
Think over for a while. Think clearly!
I thought the major was a lady suffragette.
Travolta has absolutely no obligation to talk about his sex life. He's married. He has kids. He seems to be in a happy relationship.
He's probably bi or may now be gay... I just don't see why-in-the-world he has to go into details about his private life.
Actually I think his not-talking-about-it-stance is cool.
The gays go on and on and on and on about sexual freedom.... so let people be free to create their life the way they friggin' want to. His not talking about what he does sexually takes nothing away from you. The finger wagging school marm thing is pathetic, it's ugly.
However, I would like to see the guy be honest about his looks. He seems to be getting really bad advice and unable to judge what he looks like for himself.
That hair thing makes him look like he's wearing a felt shower-cap.
However I'd like to see the guy be honest about who he really loves. No shame in that.
By one of "the gays"
"The gays go on and on and on and on about sexual freedom.... so let people be free to create their life the way they friggin' want to."
The gays? You sound like a clueless homophobe. No one is stopping him from "creating his life" the way he wants to. He has the right to enter into a sham marriage. And we have the right to call him out on it.
"They're a personality and they can choose to present whatever personality they want"
You're retarded. People can choose to lie, and the public can choose to ridicule them for being liars.
"Actually I think his not-talking-about-it-stance is cool."
Uh, going out of your way to fake a sham marriage isn't "not talking about it." Gotta love the homophobes who think homosexuality should be hidden from view, but heterosexuality should be openly discussed.
"The finger wagging school marm thing is pathetic, it's ugly."
You're the one wagging fingers at us. You sound like a school marm, with your defense of the closet. Your values are from the 19th century.
"Travolta has absolutely no obligation to talk about his sex life."
You must not have read the articles where John and Kelly talked about their supposedly steamy sex life. This was around the time John did the movie Basic. It's funny how people like you think it's fine to discuss HETEROSEXUALITY but want homosexuality to be treated like a dirty.
Maybe he really loves his wife, his kids, and having gay flings on the side.
No shame in that.
He should come out for his own sake, so he can enjoy the happiness of being himself for the first time in his life.
That fact that you automatically assume his must be a "sham marriage" proves my point.
He may very well be happily married.
Of course the finger pointing school marms have their officially-approved standards of what marraige should be.... and anyone who deviates....tsk, tsk.
R96 "He should come out for his own sake, so he can enjoy the happiness of being himself for the first time in his life."
Right. The guy is a multi-millionare. Has been a TV star.... a movie star. Wildly popular in his time. Has a family who apparently loves him.
Yep, that's what he's missing.... lessons from you about what he needs to do to be happy....for the first time in his life.
Sorry...I meant to write "The guy is a multi-millionare. Has been a TV star.... a movie star. Wildly popular in his time. Has a family who apparently loves him. AND he probably gets all the dick he wants."
Clue: He's a guest on "Ellen."
"Yep, that's what he's missing.... lessons from you about what he needs to do to be happy....for the first time in his life."
ROFLMAO. Closet defending Republicans are hysterical. Guys who stoop to trolling for dick in saunas and sexually harrassing masseurs are usually sad, lonely people.Tell yourself that he's happy if it makes you feel better about your own closeted status.
"Of course the finger pointing school marms have their officially-approved standards of what marraige should be.... and anyone who deviates....tsk, tsk."
As opposed to the finger-wagging schoolmarms who trash those of us who think it's wrong to lie about who you are? His PR person said that John is not gay or bisexual. He is getting his "people" to lie for him because he's ashamed of who he is. Of course his marriage is a sham - you think it's just a coincidence that he started dating Kelly Preston when the Enquirer exposed his relationship with Paul Barressi? I guess Republican, closet-defending "schoolmarms" like yourself are so stupid that they'll believe the most outrageous lies. I bet you also believe that Larry Craig just has a really wide stance.
"That fact that you automatically assume his must be a "sham marriage" proves my point."
The fact that you automatically assume his marriage isn't a sham proves my point: That you're extremely dumb and gullible.
Not to mention a self-loathing, closet-defending Republican with a low IQ.
Leave Lego-Head aloooone!!!
Is there someone in the nation who still believes John Travolta is straight? Stupid or insane? Just curious.
I remember in the 90s, when the stories about him first started coming out, all my straight relatives thought it couldn't possibly be true. He dated Olivia Newton-John for chrissake! (something actually said.) They didn't want to believe it then, and I doubt they'd say they believe it now either. It seemed real important to one of my sisters to deny it, oh but she doesn't think any less of me for being gay. Yeah right, stupid cunt.
I gotta laugh at R101: "Guys who stoop to trolling for dick in saunas and sexually harrassing masseurs are usually sad, lonely people."
Trolling for dick in saunas? Well, clutch my pearls!
Is something suddenly wrong with that?
I'd love to know how many guys here on this forum have gone to a sauna looking for sex.
So, why don't you tell us: what are the "officially-approved-ways-of-looking-for-dick"?
And as far as the masseurs go: let's not be naive, any high-priced masseur working in Hollywood knows very well that being hit-up is part of a days work. There is absolutely nothing strange about it.
However: If the masseur rejected his passes and Travolta insisted in an ugly way, well then yes, the masseur has his right to press charges. But I'd really question his motives.
Anyway, as it stands, neither of us know what the truth is here.
R 102 wrote: "The fact that you automatically assume his marriage isn't a sham proves my point: That you're extremely dumb and gullible."
The fact is dear, I never said that. Learn to read. What I did say was "He SEEMS to be in a happy relationship", "He MAY very well be happily married." and "MAYBE he really loves his wife, his kids, and having gay flings on the side."
I don't know if his marriage is a happy one or a "sham". And neither do you. But that doesn't stop you from insisting that you do know for sure. You are the one who is judgmental and self righteous.
Countless couples are in relationships for convenience. Countless couples remain happily together without sex as the years go by. Are those marriages "sham"? Do you make it your business to sort out the "sham" marriages from the "real" ones? What are your standards for judging?
Leaving travolta out of this for a minute... I'm crious to know: is something wrong if a married guy likes some dick now and then? Is that too much for your close minded little brain to handle?
re: Travolta's PR people
Why are you surprised that Travolta's PR people deny that he's gay (or bi)? Why single out Travolta for your bitter-queen vitriol?
Please name the A-list leading-men film actors that are openly gay. Well? Who?
Never mind, I'll answer for you: there's no one. Zero. Zilch.
You really think that George Clooney is going to sit down with Ellen and explain that his Italian "body-guard" is actually his lover and Elisabetta Canalis was paid to hang out with him?
Not anytime soon.
Maybe there's a reason for that (like it or not). In fact, in the whole long history of Hollywood, there has not been one…. not one… A-list leading man actor to come out before the public. So why expect Travolta to do so?
As former B-list (now D list) actor Rupertt Everett famously said: "It just doesn't work and you're going to hit a brick wall at some point. You're going to manage to make it roll for a certain amount of time, but at the first sign of failure they'll cut you right off... Honestly, I would not advise any actor necessarily, if he was really thinking of his career, to come out".
said the brainless frau.
If the best looking actor in Hollywood came on to me and tried to force himself on me...I'd get an attorney as soon as possible.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
