Says her Look Who's Talking co-star is the 'greatest love' of her life

Kirstie Alley says John Travolta is not gay

Kirstie Alley says John Travolta, her co-star in three Look Who’s Talking films, is not gay.

Travolta has long been plagued with speculation about his sexuality – especially this year as he faced a series of sexual harassment allegations from various men.

None of the allegations have been proven and Alley, in an ABC News interview previewed Wednesday (7 November), addressed the speculation.

‘I know John. With all my heart and soul, he’s not gay,’ says Alley. ‘I think it’s some weird way, in Hollywood, if someone gets big enough and famous enough, and they’re not out doing drugs and they’re not womanizing, what do you say about them?’

Travolta and Alley are both Scientologists and starred in the 1989 box office smash Look Who’s Talking and its 1990 and 1993 sequels.

Alley said in the interview that Travolta was ‘the greatest love’ of her life but they did not pursue a relationship because she was married to actor Parker Stevenson while Travolta has been married to actress Kelly Preston for more than 20 years.

The actress best known for her roles in the sitcoms Cheers and Veronica’s Closet, has gotten the most attention in recent years for her dramatic weight gains and losses and her appearances on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.

She is currently promoting her new memoir, The Act of Men, to be released next week.
