Los Angeles: Hollywood veteran John Travolta has said that his close friend, rapper Pitbull inspired him to experiment with his hair and go bald. The duo has been thick as thieves since the rapper composed the score for Travolta’s 2018 movie ‘Gotti’.
“A good friend, Armando Perez, Pitbull – he lives his life like this. He would send pictures of me where I have all my hair, and he’d superimpose no hair and say, ‘I prefer this’, so I thought… Maybe it’s time to do it,” Travolta was quoted as saying by ‘Extra magazine’ of his look.
The actor said his wife, actor Kelly Preston is also a fan of the hairdo. “She loves it… She has always loved the idea,” Travolta said.
Travolta is thrilled with the reaction his new look has been receiving and even joked that the last time people were so interested in him was when he mispronounced Idina Menzel’s name at 2014’s Academy Awards ceremony.
“It’s been a lot easier. Life’s simpler. The biggest fun has been just the response to it. I felt like Zoolander or something – I came out and my new look became headline news. The only other time I was a leading story was when I mispronounced at the Oscars,”said the ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and ‘Grease’ star.
