John Travolta's dark head of hair has been famous since the 1970s, from Welcome Back, Kotter to Saturday Night Fever. But Travolta recently decided to shave his head. He didn't do it for a new role but for a new life look. (Still, now that he's bald, I'm thinking he's ready to play Bruce Willis' twin in something.) Travolta was asked if it was true that his friend Pitbull inspired the bald look, and here's how he answered:
Zoolander? This appears to be the New Year's post that got a lot attention, and maybe it's showing his Blue Steel look:
That photo did seem to get fans talking at the time, with many appreciating his new look. (I'm not the only one who saw Bruce Willis; some fans suggested John Travolta join his Pulp Fiction co-star in the new Die Hard movie).
According to John Travolta's interview with ET, Pitbull only had a relatively small influence on the new look. However, on December 14, John Travolta introduced his friend Armando Christian Perez, aka Pitbull, at his handprint and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre. In that photo, Travolta definitely has a full head of hair.
John Travolta may be embracing the bald look now, but he'll probably rock more interesting wigs for future roles. He's had some crazy hairstyles in the past, particularly in Battlefield Earth, but also Pulp Fiction, his recent film Gotti (photo at top), and the one he just mentioned, From Paris With Love, which showed him bald with a goatee. Here's that look from the 2010 film:
John Travolta isn't doing the same goatee thing at this point, but he does appear to be growing out a grey-ish beard. He's 64, and this is probably one of his better looks, so good for him.
John Travolta gave his bald interview while attending the Super Bowl with his son. What's he been doing on the film front? He's had a rocky time lately -- especially last year with Gotti. In 2019, he seems to have a few films in post-production, including Trading Paint, The Poison Rose, and Moose. Check out what we know is headed to theaters this year in our 2019 movie release schedule.
