Bald is beautiful, just ask John Travolta! The actor recently threw everyone for a loop when he shared a photo of himself with a brand new look, and now, he’s thanking all of his fans for being so supportive of his updated ‘do.
Earlier this week, the 64-year-old debuted his new bald look on Instagram as he took a photo next to his teenage daughter, Ella. The caption simply read, “I hope everyone had a great New Year!” and did not reference his lack of hair at all even though that’s the only thing people in the comments could talk about. And thankfully, most of the comments were super positive. Now the actor has decided to respond to all the good vibes and this time around it was John’s son, Benjamin, 8, who was beside his father as John spoke to his fans on social media. Check out John’s new video below!
“Hey there, Ben Travolta, John Travolta here,” the American Crime Story star began the video. “We’re dirt biking today and we just got the great news that [my account] hit over a million followers on Instagram. We love you and we thank you and also, thanks for liking the new hairdo.” The Oscar-nominated actor then lifted his cap up to show off his baldness once again. This is the second time in as many days that John has included his children in his Instagram posts. John, whose oldest son Jett passed away in 2009 at the age of 16 due to a seizure, shares his kids with his wife of almost 28 years, actress Kelly Preston.
Kelly, 56, once spoke about her longtime marriage to her husband and recalled the time they first met on the set of the 1989 movie The Experts. “Well, I was not that happily married [at the time] let’s put it that way. I was really with the wrong person,” Kelly told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen of her previous, two-year marriage to Kevin Gauge. “But this is what I see coming across the lobby: I’m sitting there ready to screen test and I see [John].” Kelly went on to explain that she was head-over-heels when she first saw John. And we’re sure Kelly still feels the same way today.
