Comedian Margaret Cho is known for her shocking standup routines, and during a recent stop on her Australian tour she stirred up controversy by talking about John Travolta’s sexuality. “I’m going to get in trouble, but I’ll just tell you. He is so gay. John Travolta is gay,” said the bisexual comedian, who worked with Travolta on the 1997 movie Face/Off. “He’s not just gay…He is like Oscar Wilde gay…Lord Byron gay. That kind of crazy, incredibly flamboyant gay.” She then added, “I feel bad for him; because I know he would be much happier if he could just come out but he can’t.” Cho also discussed what it was like working with Travolta and it sounds like he’s a major diva. “It was a weird movie because…he can only work 10 hours a day,” she said. “And part of the 10 hours is him flying his plane to the location and flying home. So essentially he only had to work like five hours a day.” She added, “He was so pampered and so taken care of, it was the closest I have ever been to being in the presence of a king….or a queen, actually.”
