John Travolta Features

This is the section for all our "FUN" John Travolta information - please enjoy!

Did You Know?

... that John is married to actress Kelly Preston. They met on the set of The Experts and have two young children.

... Everyone at Destination Hollywood offers their condolences to John Travolta and his family upon the death of their 16 year old son Jett. Jett who was named for his father's love of airplanes, died on January 1 on a family vacation in the Bahamas from a head injury in a fall reportedly caused by a a seizure.

... that John has an official website. And here's the best part. You can request an autographed picture (loud squeal) and you can even asked for it to be written especially to you. And.... you can send a message to him. This is a man who knows how to treat his fans.

... that John's parents allowed him drop out of school at the age of 16 to go to New York to pursue his acting career. At the time, John wanted to be a singing/dancing Broadway musical theater star. He took tap-dancing lesson's from Gene Kelly's brother Fred Kelly and appeared in local theater productions of Broadway musicals and did a lot of dinner theater. His luck changed when he got the part of Vinne Barbarino in the sitcom Welcome Back Kotter. To learn more visit our Tribute to Gene Kelly

... that one of John's first theater roles was a bit part in a touring company of Grease. At the time he said that his greatest dream was to be able to play the part of Danny Zuko. Dreams do come true ... to learn more visit our Tribute to Grease.

... that the late movie critic Gene Siskel purchased John's famous white three-pieced suit from the ultimate disco movie Saturday Night Fever for a reported $145,000. It's interesting to note that this is nearly the same amount of money that John was paid for his "come-back" performance in Pulp Fictionin 1994.

...that despite some very lean years in the late eighties and early nineties when his career was virtually dead, John is a very wealthy man. He has three Gulfstream jets, a Lear Jet and a Boeing 707. Given that most of his big movies were made before the day of the $25 million acting paycheck you might be asking where all the money came from. A savvy businessman, John insisted on a percentage of the profits from the Saturday Night Fever and Grease soundtracks as well as the critically discounted but popular three Look Who's Talking movies.

... that Richard Gere owes a huge debt of thanks to John for turning down three of Richard's most career advancing movies ... Days of Heaven, American Gigolo and An Officer and a Gentleman. To learn more visit our Tribute to Richard Gere.

... that if you share John's interest in flying and aviation you can visit the Airport Journals Website and read all about his planes and his many accomplishments there.

... that you can watch 41 episodes of Welcome Back Kotter with John Travolta as Vinnie Barbarino. You probably don't want to watch them all at one time or you might be in danger of turning into a Sweat Hog yourself.

George Malley ( Phenomenon ):

"Well, let's get specific, Bob! I mean, if the guy's still alive, born in California, October 3rd, 1928, 10 PM, he's 67 years, 9 months, 22 days, 14 hours, and ... and 12 minutes. If he was born in New York, he's 3 hours older, now isn't he?"
