Was Travolta weird at Oscars last night?

    It may be that he's trying to convince he's "straight" to draw attention away from the gay rumors. Or he might be bi. At any rate I'd prefer that he not gross me out with his lecherous displays.

    Once upon a time it would have been interesting to know if he was gay or straight, but no longer. His cuteness disappeared as his weirdness grew, just like TC's, Will Smith is now older than his 'uncle' was in Philadelphia born and raised etc. Scn just doesn't have any really good looking male stars any more, I refuse to go back!

    That Scarlet was the subject of one of the Cult's secret fake "interviews or screen tests" for the real purpose as a potential Tom Cruises' new girlfriend......

    and now what...years later another "long time, Cult Celeb" is groping her on National TV......

    Is just to weird....and deserves a thread of its own....

    I think this whole, Cult and CC "targeting actors" really needs to be looked at more closely, and exposed at Mango did in his video....

    I thought his mannerisms were strange, but was not able to make anything of it. Does anyone know how many times he did the purif? That would explain the behavior.

    This sounds so stupid I'm sure it will be dismissed, but, whatever....

    I think OSA and JT are so hyper vigilant on this HBO thing that they thought there was the possibility that someone was going to ask awkward questions or make very pointed awkward remarks using the word "scientology" or "cult" and that it would get a lot of do a 'safe' little media attention grabber of their own, as a preemptive derail.

    You may be right.

    How disgusting if true.

    My aunt and I were wondering why Scarlett didn't have an earring in her right ear when she was up presenting. Now I see what happened, John Travolta ate it up!!

    "In a report from the Independent, body language expert and author of The Body Language Bible, Judi James, analyzed John Travolta’s creepy behavior at the Oscars.

    “But it’s Travolta I feel sorry for. Greeting rituals of any kind are all about status and power displays and perhaps the veteran film star thought a little faux-sexual fooling about might actually receive a grateful and complimentary reception from the two women. Unfortunately both took on the facial expressions of someone having their leg humped by an over-keen puppy, creating the perfect storm in terms of body language poses.

    “Grabbing Johansson might have worked had she screamed with delight at the surprise intervention. But instead she turns her head away as he tries to plant a kiss on her cheek and then she lowers him even further by staring deadpan into the camera.

    “Travolta’s body language with Menzel is rather more bizarre as he seems to persist in his hilarity despite the fact that her signals are suggesting he should stop. This was presumably based on a shared joke about forgetting her name but his chin-grasp suggests a determination to hold her in the pose he wants to perform, complete with eye contact and romantic-looking smiles. Unlike Johansson, Menzel is smiling as she pulls away but her teeth are clenched, suggesting a polite social rictus rather than a grin of shared fun and then breaking away to clap suggests she wants the audience to help her out of the predicament.”

    I never noticed that, and got curious. Did it fall off, or what? I see that it was an "ear cuff," something I'd never heard of, at least not as an item of jewellery.

    The Piaget ear cuff was made from pink gold with five pear-shaped emeralds, 278 brilliant-cut diamonds, four pear-shaped aquamarines and two pear-shaped green tourmalines, according to Forbes​

    I admit she looked spectacular, but I had only noticed she looked skinnier than usual, and hadn't paid attention to the impressive bling.

    If I am right, and I think I am, :biggrin: it is a good sign in a way. It shows that their control of media is degrading to a point of "try to divert attention from bad press which we are almost 100% sure to get when one of our celebs has to appear in public". A very reactive, defensive, position - apparently reacting to what might happen -but actually reacting to what is already going on.

    As support for my theory on this: It has hallmarks of scientology media handling: the stunt element. I am thinking of LA airport, Squirrel Busters, some of the courtroom stuff, etc.
    They have the highest ever cunning stunts in this galaxy.

    Say what you want. He may be bald as hell and queer as a $3 bill, but I think he's a sweet soul (that maybe trying a bit too hard right now).

    I agree with you DB.

    Plus if the Media connects the dots on the Scarlett Johannson "fake movie role" Cult arranged video interview.....that was really to find Tom Cruise a new girlfriend.....IMO this thing will really blow up.....

    I wonder if they asked Scarlett Johannson to wear Burberry clothing for the Video too? :biggrin:

    Who knows what happened regards that fake interview....and what was said between Cult leadership...David Miscavige, Tom Cruise....and what John Travolta knew about it.....or was asked or ordered to do regarding his Oscar appearance....perhaps because of it.....

    There is ZERO chemistry between these two in this photo! He looks totally wooden, even standing a very obvious arms length away from his wife :omg::confused2:
    John looks horrible with all the makeup, including blush or something like it?!
    Kelly is gorgeous as usual. But still, they look like they've just met, or worst yet, brother & sister!!! :carryon:

    I agree that he is trying to portray an image of a heterosexual man.
    He probably has a good idea about the upcoming HBO movie. If he maybe got caught having an affair with a woman, fake affair,that might help to keep up the charade.

    Huh? A gay and a lezzy?? A queer and a dyke? Oh well. (Pardon my totally, purposely politically incorrect language.)

    I feel very sorry for people who were once stunners and for whatever reasons have just lost their appeal. At one time many women would have welcomed a little face holding from JT. Sadly and with that expression on his face he looks more like a fat version of the child catcher from chitty chitty bang bang. Part of that creepy oddness may well be a slowly materialising realisation that he's freaking someone out. Once adorable he is now just a bit frightening, that is very sad if he is beginning to understand that. He is not attracting he is repulsing. But saying that, pictures I've seen where he hasn't staple-gunned hair onto his forehead and is relaxed in his chubby baldness he does still have something. Underneath the lies he still is a human being, if he only walked away from the cult John Travolta might just have a second career spurt. Please John, just walk away and don't look back.

    You really read way too much into this. All of those "weird" moves by Travolta were scripted & planned ahead by the personal reps handling Travolta, Johannson & Menzel. At these events covered by the international media, the star's reps will often plot out story lines or instruct their stars to act or participate in a scene meant to provide them additional exposure.. it makes them stand out in the crowd of the other celebs present.. so when people think about that particular event, they think of those celebs that got a lion's share of the notoriety.

    That said, JT's rep might deserve to be scolded for plotting a hatch lime that served to make Travolta look like an utter ass on stage.
