John Travolta -- Globes Were 'More Like a Roast'

1/23/2011 12:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Travolta -- who was the implied butt of a controversial joke from Ricky Gervais during the Golden Globes -- seemed to acknowledge the situation last night when he told our photog the event was "more like a roast" than an awards show.

John was all smiles leaving an event at the Hollywood Palladium last night as dozens of fans asked for autographs and congratulated him on his new baby. But he was stone cold silent when we asked him if he had any words for Gervais.

Sometimes saying nothing truly says it all.

I thought he was talking about Tom Cruise not John Travolta. He was talking about thinking someone was gay, but acting hedrosexual and there were rumors for years Tom was gay not John. Not sure why he would talk about John like that.

"How you do feel about Ricky Gervais right now?"

There was some talk of Travolta being gay early in his career, but I thought he proved that he wasn't when he married Kelly Preston; who was one of THE hottest pieces of ass back in the day.

I, myself, assumed Gervais was talking about Tom Cruise when all of this went down. Makes more sense that he was talking about Travolta since Cruise didn't even attend the Globes. Damn, there are so many gay Scientologists in Hollyweird I get them confused! LOL

If I were John, I would concentrate on raising Ella and Benjamin and forget about what Gervais said.

Travolta, unlike Cruise, says nothing. Remember Cruise flipping out over the South Park show. That only added fuel to the fire.

Grease Lightning! (that song will never be the same, yoinks!)

He might as well come out of that glittery closet already. I hardly think that revelation will have much impact on his career at this point. Of course the argument can be said that it's no one's business and who really cares? but look at what it's done for NPH's career. Woot! Two snaps up in a Z formation!

Enough Already    

Everybody knows that Ricky was talking about Travolta and Cruise. Its been said (in other online columns)that both their marriages are shams. Rumor has it Cruise married Katie Holmes with the stipulation that she would get Millions if they stayed married for X amount of years. He dumped Nicole Kidman just before her bonus dollars kicked in.
Travolta about whom gay rumors have been keeping blind item writers busy for YEARS is said to be in an Rock Hudson styled "arranged"marriage. In other words FOR SHOW PEOPLE! Google Kelly Preston faked pregnancy and have your eyes opened!

It was funny that Cruise pulled the divorce papers just before the 10 years was up.

Kidman did so much better after the divorce then Cruise. Kidman prooved she's an actress not just Tom Cruises wife. Katie Holmes doesn't have Kidmans talent.

It's been known for years that Travolta is gay. A family member of mine witnessed him making out passionately with a man more then 20 years ago. Tom Cruise's gayness is a bigger question mark.

Worse than the controversy is the fact that (apparently) some people didn't even get the joke. He was talking about Tom Cruise, not Travolta. I've NEVER heard anyone suggest that John Travolta was gay, but people have been saying that about Cruise for years!

Travolta is a loud-mouthed crybaby. He pushes his pseudo-religion on everyone around him and says nasty things about others' private lives but can't take a little joke about himself. He's the hole in A-hole.
