Rob Schneider about John Travolta: There was a "Fags in Denial Who Believe in Aliens" convention

Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Brett Ratner, Harvey Keitel, Sarah Silverman and others roasted Quentin Tarantino here Wednesday at a lunch time event organized by the Friars Club.

The Friars Club Roast filled up a ballroom at midtown Manhattan's Hilton New York hotel, with Tarantino drawing what a Friars spokesman said were 2,270 guests -- a record-setting figure for the organization that has long catered to entertainment industry folks.

Jackson, who served as roastmaster, called Tarantino "a walking spaghetti Western" and cited his early love for Elvis Presley and interest in diverse film genres, including urban movies. He then quipped that he wanted to make sure to introduce Tarantino the way he would want it -- as "Quentin Super Fly Tarantino Presley."

Schneider delivered one of most incendiary comments of the night. Among his jokes, he said he knew why John Travolta, who sent a congratulatory note for Tarantino, was absent from the event. "There was a "Fags in Denial Who Believe in Aliens" convention," Schneider suggested.

Interesting comment from a guy who is best pals with Sandler who is deeeeep in his own comedy closet.

I hate Rob Schneider, but I love him for saying that. Would love to know the expressions on some of Travolta's H'wood pals when it was said.

R7, Since it's a Friar's Roast, he gets a pass. The events are known to be very un-PC bordering on racist.

No r6 Sandler is not straight.

I was so shocked when Schneider won an Asian Image Award, but in retrospect it's pretty obvious. I loved the Sensitive Naked Man skits on SNL.

Are we mixing up Sandler with Spade? Or are there rumors about Sandler too?

There are rumors about Sandler too. There have been discussions here about him and he has been photographed at parties at the Abbey in West Hollywood. The links to the pics were posted in the DL thread on him.

I'm slightly peeved about the use of the term fag; he could have just as easily use gay. But, wow! That is funny!

by Anonymousreply 16December 8, 2010 3:53 AM

I wish we could've seen the response in the audience.

Remember when South Park did that episode on Tom Cruise being in the closet? I forget the details, but I think a clip of that was shown at the Emmy's and you heard the nervous laughter from the Emmy audience. It was great.

by Anonymousreply 17December 8, 2010 3:56 AM

John Waters thinks that John's "sexual preference" is straight and that he's unfairly maligned as a Scientologist closet case, and furthermore that there's no proof Scientology is against gays anyway.

He also thinks Tom Cruise is straight.

by Anonymousreply 18December 8, 2010 4:20 AM

And what's Waters' rationale for his conclusions? I think it's implicit that Scientology is anti-gay if it encourages people to spill everthing and be honest about their "poor behavior" in those sessions with the e-meter (is that what it's called?) and manages to collect a whole trove blackmail material. Most gays in Hollywood don't want to come out and the Scieno threat may hang over their heads.

by Anonymousreply 19December 8, 2010 4:33 AM

I don't know what his rationale is.

I read that in his new book. Surely he can't believe that, so what's the point of writing it when he didn't even have to bring up the topic at all? It was bizarre.

Rob is part Asian, IIRC, his mom is Filipino. If she's not Filipino, she is definitely Asian.

Yes, that's where I saw it too, r24. I was surprised, to say the least.

by Anonymousreply 25December 8, 2010 4:54 AM

If Waters wasn't being tongue in cheek re Travolta and Cruise, then he was only doing what Armistead Maupin and other gay men have done before him: LIE to make sure you're movies get made. (Or books get made into movies).%0D %0D You think just because someone's openly gay in Hollywood they're going to out other people? Whether they agree with outing or not, the lure of future Hollywood paychecks keeps their lips sealed.

by Anonymousreply 26December 8, 2010 5:01 AM

Forgot to add, I guess the real difference between Schneider and Travolta is the Schneider DOESN'T believe in aliens.

by Anonymousreply 27December 8, 2010 5:03 AM

Nick Swardson is gay and is close with Adam Sandler. That doesn't mean Sandler is gay but it does make me wonder: is Sandler comfortable around Swardson and supportive of his projects because he's a wide scale liar, too?

by Anonymousreply 28December 8, 2010 5:06 AM

God, Maupin's been outing people for years in interviews--Merv, Selleck, even those sacred cows Paul and Joanne.

Where did you get the idea he lies for people?

R22 It was banned for a time, before Paramount decided Cruise was more of a liability than an asset.

There's more to it than that where Scientologists are concerned, R27. JW may have been mildly intrigued at one point, dabbled, and now has real reason to fear them. Many do. They're vicious.

Sandler comes into my restaurant semi regularly. Don't think he's gay at all. Very nice man. Of course, what do I know?

by Anonymousreply 40December 8, 2010 11:58 AM

Waters' comments often require a follow-up to see just what his acrid little brain is getting at. He never says anything without a motive, balanced carefully between maintaining his image/elan/aesthetic and his self-interests. The balance is there because he usually is scrupulously honest, in his way. Note, for example, his use of the term "sexual preference" about Travolta being straight.

So, John dear, what precisely do you mean about $cientology not being homophobic, in light of the historic evidence?

He didn't say it simply because he wants a paycheck or to get his films made. He can't get his films made no matter what he says to whom about what. And he's already sitting on so much money he doesn't need more, and he know it.

"Is Nick Swardson openly gay?"

On his latest comedy special, he addresses this and says he is not gay, but understands why everyone thinks he is.

Quit the racist bullcrap R48 and R50. Schneider wasn't poking fun at gays so it doesn't matter if he's white, black, purple or puce.

Anyone with a modicum of intelligence can see that he was taking aim at a closeted predator who belongs to a spaced-out hate-mongering homophobic cult.

"Fags in Denial Who Believe in Aliens" is a perfect description of predator Travolta as well as Tammy C.
