Travolta Hit with Sexual Assault Charge
John Travolta is being sued by a Los Angeles masseur after allegedly attempting a sexual assault in January. The masseur, identified only as John Doe, claims that Travolta scheduled a $200-per-hour appointment, met him on a street corner, and drove him to his bungalow before stripping naked and attempting sexual acts. Doe is also claiming that the 58-year-old actor told him that "Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity." Travolta and his camp are denying the claims absolutely, maintaining that Travolta wasn't even in California on the date in question.

Mila Kunis is following the heroic footsteps of Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, after she rescued a 50-year-old man who was working in the actress's L.A. home and was found collapsed, possibly convulsing. TMZ reports that "Mila came running, had her friend call 911, then rushed to the man's side," adding, "We're told the 28-year-old actress grabbed the man's head ... turned it to the side so he wouldn't choke." The rescue comes just days after an encounter with Kunis's longtime stalker Stuart Dunn, who violated his parole and was taken in by police on Friday after he followed the actress to the gym. Dunn had previously broken into Kunis's home in January. Stay strong, Mila!
