There are many reasons why Hollywood celebrities stay in the proverbial closet these days. Even with a growing American approval rate, celebrities face major criticism when admitting to a homosexual lifestyle. Well known directors will blacklist an actor if they even suspect he’s in a same sex relationship, while famous music producers will fire up-and-coming pop stars to limit controversy in the office. Even with the ample deterrents and ever-looming media, some celebrities are not only open about their love interests, they’re proud. They can be A-list actors, heartthrob county stars, or even married to past presidents! Here’s our top 15 celebrities you didn’t know were gay.
15. John Travolta
It’s common knowledge John Travolta caused a “Saturday Night Fever” with his numerous box office hits in the 70’s and 80’s. But did you know he allegedly had a six-year affair with a male California pilot? Rumors of the gay tryst surfaced after Travolta was sued by two unidentified male masseurs for sexual harassment. Although the actor claims it’s purely “Pulp Fiction”, the gay pilot swears that Travolta still prefers the occasional gay lover to wife, Kelly Preston.
