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.

Okay, Gervais said, "famous Scientologists who pretend to be straight."

The "s" on the end of the word should clue everyone that Gervais meant more than one Scientologist. In other words, two Scientologists. Good grief, get the wax out of those ears.

since Gervais comment/joke I am actually hearing quite a few logical people saying that if Travolta hid/denied the truth/fact/proof that his son Jett was Autistic because of Scientology...what else is he hiding/denying?

makes one wonder
even thought it's none of our business when you get right down to it

just saying...

I know the lady that played Travolta's girlfriend on Kotter, Bambi.
She just said, HE IS FLAT OUT STRANGE.

If you don't know by now that both of them are gay you will never know.

Scientology is a cult. If you are member, you are mentally unbalanced.

I read a story the other day on Scientology and it is just....scary! The auditing and brainwashing they do nothing short of a cult. I just cannot figure out how people let themselved get sucked in to this travesty of a "religion".

So it's mean to make fun of gay people for being gay, but it's alright to call married men with wives and children gay? That doesn't make any sense at all.

@Samson...you've never heard any talk about the fact that Travolta is gay? Not sure where the hell you've been, but those rumors have been around since the 70's...

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

I thought Rickey Gervais was absolutely awful on the Golden Globes. Did he think he was amusing? He was insulting and rude and most of all, he was boring. Glad that he won't be invited back.

This is funny, I thought Ricky was talking about Tom Cruise, not John Travolta. Travolta's sexuality has never been in question, where as Tom's has always been in question.
