"John Travolta is so gay," Cho is quoted as telling an audience by the UK tabloid Daily Mail

"I feel bad for him, because I know he would be much happier if he could just come out. But he can't.
On the set of Face/Off
Travolta "was so pampered and so taken care of, it was the closest I have ever been to being in the presence of a king," she said, then joked, "Or a queen, actually."
She concluded: "But I felt bad for him because he was so gay and couldn't be out about it."
