John Travolta Wiki Biography

John Joseph Travolta was born on 18 February 1954, in Eaglewood, New Jersey USA of Italian (father) and Irish (mother) descent, and is now one of the best-known actors in the entire movie industry. In addition, he is also a dancer and a singer, having shown his dance moves and vocal range in numerous film musicals, such as “Saturday Night Fever” and “Grease”.

So just how rich is John Travolta? Sources estimate that John – a true veteran of Hollywood – has a net worth of $165 million, accumulated during his acting career spanning more than 40 years.

John Travolta Net Worth $165 Million

John Travolta took up acting when he was only 12, becoming interested in drama at high school, and then dropping out at the age of 16 to try and pursue a professional career in acting. He had his first significant roles in musicals, including the stage production of “Grease”, and in 1972 he debuted on Broadway in “Over Here!”. Conquering television was the next big step for the talented young actor. In 1975 John Travolta landed a role in the TV sitcom “Welcome Back, Kotter”(1975-79), in which he played Vinnie Barbarino, the arrogant high-school heartthrob , a role which brought him worldwide fame and huge financial success to really start his net worth growing.

John Travolta was subsequently cast in the movies “Saturday Night Fever” (1977) and “Grease” (1978), which have certainly been two highlights of his career. For his role in “Saturday Night Fever” Travolta even received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor at only 24. Both movies became box office hits and John Travolta became a household name everywhere. The next decade was, however, not as successful. The majority of films Travolta chose to be a part of did not manage to grab the viewers’ attention, except in a negative critical way. His professional career recovered through his role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” (1994), which became a huge hit and landed Travolta another Academy Award nomination.

Later followed such successful movies as “Face/Off”, “Get Shorty”, “Primary Colors” and “Hairspray” (which was a return to his musical roots). For his critically acclaimed role in “Get Shorty” he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. However, Travolta’s career continued inconsistently, with “Battlefield Earth”(2000), based on L. Ron Hubbard’s book receiving negative reviews and poor box office receipts, but “Wild Hogs”(2007) and a remake of “Hairspray”(2008), his first musical since “Grease”, and “Bolt”(2008) doing considerably better. Currently he is to play the voice of Gummy Bear in an animated film release scheduled for late 2015, “Gummy Bear The Movie 3D”, a film that may be noted more for its associated merchandise revenues. Regardless of these upsand-downs John Travolta is still among the highest-paid actors in the entertainment business.

In his interesting personal life, John Travolta has been married to actress Kelly Preston since 1991. Their first son Jett died tragically in 2009 due to a seizure. The couple also have a 14-years-old daughter Ella and a son Benjamin, who was born in 2010. John Travolta is a member of a Church of Scientology. He found this church in 1975 after reading the book titled “Dianetics”. Although the movement itself (Tom Cruise is an active member as well) is often criticized, John Travolta has helped people in need more than once. John Travolta is also a certified pilot and owns five planes, including Gulfstream, a Lear jet and Boeing 707. After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, he flew his Boeing 707 with supplies and doctors into the devastated area, and alongside the Scientologist Volunteer Ministers helped those who suffered from the horrible disaster. His estate (worth $4.9 million) is located in Ocala, Florida, on Greystone Airport where even he has his own runway. The fact that he is among the wealthiest Hollywood actors is clearly visible from his vintage car collection which includes several classic Thunderbirds, a Jaguar XJ6 and a Rolls-Royce.

1I watched this Fellini movie when I was five called La Strada (1954) and I said to my father: "Why did Giulietta Masina die?" and he said: "She died of a broken heart." "You can die of a broken heart?" He said: "Yes, you can be so sad that you can die of a broken heart." "Without being ill?" He said: "Yes!" It changed my whole life. I never wanted to break anyone's heart, for sure! But it made me consider that. Most kids were considering other things; I was considering Giulietta Masina in a Fellini film.
2My mother was an acting teacher. She taught more of the existentialist style, which was that acting is believing that you're in the moment with the other actor, and I like that. I'm more comfortable portraying what I'm feeling at the moment and not knowing what I'm going to do next.
3[2014] In the old days, you didn't do a movie three times a year; you did a movie once every year and a half or every three years. You had a lot of time between films. I remember taking violin lessons, painting lessons, French lessons, you know, to fill my time. Otherwise you get in trouble. But the memories of all the films are wonderful.
4[2014] My films have an interesting continuous effect. Grease (1978) for some reason never went away. Do you know that to this day, every year, the Hollywood Bowl charges $275 a ticket to sit in an audience with a 36-year-old film and sing along to it? I've never heard of anything like that in my life. So there is some magic to that particular film. There's other films like The Wizard of Oz (1939) and Gone with the Wind (1939) that don't end either, but this has a continuous new audience, as opposed to, "oh, that's an old movie". No one looks at Grease as an old movie. It just keeps on living. That's how I view it, as a gift to the public and myself as an ongoing thing.
5[on the death of Robin Williams] I've never known a sweeter, brighter, more considerate person than Robin. Robin's commitment as an artist to lifting our mood and making us happy is compared to none. He loved us all and we loved him back.
6[on the death of his teenage son Jett] The worst thing that's ever happened in my life. The truth is, I didn't know if I was going to make it. Life was no longer interesting to me, so it took a lot to get me better.
7One's own life is not as colourful as a character that's created in a movie because they go through a million colours in a short period of time. In one's own life, it may take four years to go through those colours.
8Every time I did an interview after Moment by Moment (1978), they went right for the negative things first. I feel that the criticism after the film became abusive. It went beyond mere criticism. You would have thought Lily (Tomlin) and I had committed murder. I thought, my God, don't ever do a movie people don't like; they'll murder you.
9[on his plans for after the 2014 Oscars ceremony] I don't drink very much, but I wait until Oscar night to have my drinks. So now I'm ready to stay out until five in the morning. We're gonna do Vanity Fair, then we're gonna do Madonna's party, and we're gonna have fun tonight. I'm not gonna be happy until we see the sun rise.
10[on dancing with Princess Diana at the White House in 1985] There really was something lovely and girlish about her and I felt that I had taken her back to her childhood when she had probably watched Grease (1978) and for that moment I was her Prince Charming.
11I don't think I'm very cool as a person. I'm just better than anyone else at acting cool.
12My best quality? The transparency in my eyes. I only have to think a thought and it's seen.
13To be honest, I thought "Pulp" would have the same fate as Reservoir Dogs (1992), meaning it would be an art house movie that would have a smaller audience. I never thought it would have a mainstream audience; I thought it was too unique of a movie to hit a commercial note. And when it did, it surprised all of us, I think, because we were going to be fine with it having the same success as Reservoir Dogs. But that it would become Forrest Gump (1994) was a whole other idea.
14[on being cast in Pulp Fiction (1994)] There was a rumor that a young new director who had directed a film called Reservoir Dogs (1992) was quite interested in working with me. And his name was Quentin Tarantino. I said, "Sounds good. He's talented. I saw the movie. I would love to meet him, too." After six or seven hours of hanging out, he verbally presented two ideas to me. One was the vampire movie From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) and the other one was Pulp Fiction. I responded to Pulp Fiction but I didn't respond to From Dusk Till Dawn, and he noticed that. So at the end of the meeting he said, "I'm curious. You seem to like the Pulp Fiction one, but you did not respond as much to the other." I said, "Well, it's simple, Quentin. I'm just not a vampire guy.".
15[on how the late James Gandolfini consoled him after the death of his son] James went out of his way to come to Florida and he would not leave Florida until I was okay, or he felt that I would be fine. After a week I said, 'Jim you can really, you can, you know, we'll be fine. I've got a lot of support here.' But the idea that in our profession someone would go out of their way and not want to leave you until he felt you were okay, that's the kind of soul that James Gandolfini was. My father sold tires to his father. I was his inspiration to get into the business. He would see pictures of me on the wall from movies and he decided that he wanted to be an actor. He was a people person first and then everything else. He was this beautiful man and I love him very much.
16[on Saturday Night Fever (1977)]: I love being regarded as a sex symbol, but I can't take it too seriously.
17[on his role as Edna in Hairspray (2007)] It was tough dancing in high heels, but we did change the heels to more of a dance shoe - like a Capezio. You know they kept giving me these skinny high heels and it's like, "Okay, I understand those. My mother wore those." However, when I was growing up and I saw girls in the chorus, they had a thicker heel and it was a dance shoe and I kept telling them to find those shoes. I knew they existed, and finally they brought out a shoe and I said, "That's the shoe! Now make it in many colors.".
18As you get older, you have to force yourself to have new dreams. For instance, I've been flying for 37 years but now teaching others to fly is interesting for me. Sometimes, you have to find new angles on life to keep you interested, like sharing successes and inspiring and helping others. You have to go out of your way to activate your dreams and keep them going in this third chapter of your life.
19When they asked me to be Edna Turnblad I said, "Gee, 32 years as a leading man -- why me? What makes you think I'd be the perfect woman?".
20There is nothing gay in this movie (Hairspray (2007)). I'm not playing a gay man. Scientology is not homophobic in any way. In fact, it's one of the more tolerant faiths. Anyone's accepted.
21I have fame on the level of a Marilyn Monroe or an Elvis Presley, but part of the reason I didn't go the way they did was because of my beliefs. People make judgments about Scientology, but often they don't know what they're talking about.
22[on his role in Carrie (1976)]: I wanted to work with Brian De Palma. I knew the film would be interesting and attract a lot of attention.
1Turned down the role of Forrest Gump in Forrest Gump (1994), a decision he later admitted was a mistake.
2John was the winner of the Juno Award for International Single of the Year for "You're the One That I Want" in 1979.

16He auditioned to play Jesus Christ in Jesus Christ Superstar (1973), which went to Ted Neeley.

In it, he would have played a disgruntled cop who is teamed up with a reckless young rookie, played by Goldberg, to uncover the whereabouts of a notorious mob figure. Bud Yorkin was attached to direct. Even though it was heavily publicized at the Cannes Film Festival, funding fell through and the project was scrapped.
24John and his wife, Kelly Preston, have the distinction of having both starred in movies based on Stephen King novels, where the title of each was a girl's name which began with the letter "C". John starred in Carrie (1976) and Kelly starred in Christine (1983).

99John Travolta married Kelly Preston twice. Their first wedding on September 5, 1991, by a French Scientologist minister, was declared illegal. The couple met during the filming of The Experts (1989).
100Richard Gere practically owes his film career to Travolta. Travolta turned down the leads for Days of Heaven (1978), American Gigolo (1980), An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) and Chicago (2002), all of which went to Gere.
101He was named Man of the Year by Harvard's Hasty Pudding Club in 1981.
102He appeared on the cover of "Rolling Stone" magazine four times, the most for any actor (through 1994).
103Ranked #21 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997]
