How John Travolta Made Ricky Martin Realize He Was Gay
John Travolta's underwear scene in "Saturday Night Fever" had a life-changing impact on Ricky Martin.He told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" that the scene awakened his feelings for members of the same sex.
"Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta," Martin said when a viewer asked who his "first celeb guy crush" was. "And that underwear scene where he stands up, sits down and he ... even puts it in order." "I saw that movie back then like eight times and I didn't know why," Martin said. "I never told him 'You were my first crush.' "
Martin even demonstrated how Travolta rearranged the baggage in the scene so it'd fit in the trunk properly, reinforcing the point that this was the time of his sexual awakening.
