Ok so yes the guy has really not aged well and he is a Scientologist but ever since “Saturday Night Fever” I have been a huge fan.
You know all that stuff about him being gay. Which, let’s face it, if he was so what. Being gay is not a crime for pete’s sake. It does irk me that anyone at all would be threatened with that. In the book “Going Clear” about the supposed real scoop on Scientology, a “tell all person” who is close to Travolta scoops us that the Scientology big dog threatened our Johnny with this every time he wanted to leave Scientology. Apparently he has wanted to leave many many times. I don’t know why he didn’t just go. He may yet. As far as the threatening him with being gay, they have smeared him in the tabloids multiple times with less than flattering stories of antics.
He’s done alot of memorable movies:
Tod in Boy in the Plastic Bubble 1976
Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever 1978 (love!)
Danny in Grease 1978 (never could like this even if it was John)
Bud in Urban Cowboy 1980 (love love love)
Tony Manero in Stayin’ Alive 1983 (loved but not as much as Saturday Night Fever)
James in Look Who’s Talking Too 1990 (loved this)
James in Look Who’s Talking Now 1993 (loved this movie)
Vincent in Pulp Fiction 1994 (I hated this movie and would have walked out of the theater but I couldn’t walk out on my guy Travolta)
Chili Palmer in Get Shorty 1995
Maj Vic “Deak” Deakins in Broken Arrow 1996 (one of my all time favs)
Michael in MIchael 1996 (one of my all times favorites.. love him as an angel)
Archer and Troy in Face Off 1997
Gov Jack Stanton in Primary Colors 1998
Brig General Quintard in the Thin Red Line 1998
Warrant Officer Paul Brenner in The General’s Daughter 1999
Terf in Battlefield Earth 2000
Captain Mike Kennedy Ladder 49 2004
Edna Turnblad in Hairspray 2009 (he makes an unattractive woman for sure!)
Woody Stevens in Wild Hogs 2007
There are quite a few others of course but these are the ones that stand out to me.
