So that super-creepy photo of John Travolta grabbing and kissing Scarlett Johansson on the Oscars red carpet? Well, Johansson herself has heard what you’ve been saying about it and she wants you all to knock it off, OK? “There is nothing strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta,” she tells the Associated Press. “The image that is circulating is an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was very sweet and totally welcome. That still photo does not reflect what preceded and followed if you see the moment live. … I haven’t seen John in some years and it is always a pleasure to be greeted by him.” If you say so, ma’am. But just know you’re in a safe space and can get help if you want it.
