John Travolta attracted attention with new look during red carpet outing with family
John Travolta has been stealing the hearts of his many fans with his handsome appearance and charm for over four decades already, but he seems to look better as he ages.
The 64-year-old star known from iconic Hollywood classics such as Saturday Night Fever and Grease walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on May 15 during a photo call for the film Gotti, starred by him.
Travolta attended the prestigious event with his wife Kelly Preston and the two children they shared: Ella, 18, and Benjamin, 7, and the actor surprised with his changed look for the mafia-themed film, as reported by Closer Weekly.
His grey-haired looked is highly contrasting with his usual black hair, and this is a transformation he underwent in order to portray New York Mafia Boss John Gotti. The style certainly suits him at his age, and the site is calling him a ‘silver fox.’
Travolta was dapper wearing a sumptuous black tuxedo, crisp white shirt, and black bow tie, and his silvery hair definitively added an extra touch to the whole style.
For the way less fancy role of the namesake character in 2004 A Love Song for Boby Long, Travolta wore his hair fully white.
After rising as a superstar in the 1970 Travolta’s career was declining, with his 1980’s film performing badly both commercially and critically, but his name was redeemed with his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction in 1994.
The Cannes Film Festival has a special place in Travolta’s heart. 40 years ago, the actor was there promoting Grease, and it was there where his career took off once again when Tarantino put him back on top of the game, as reported by ABC.
