John Travolta has an unlikely source of inspiration for his new shaved head look… rapper Pitbull!
In an interview with Extra published on Friday, the Saturday Night Fever star spoke about his new ‘do at the Living Legends of Aviation Awards.
The 64-year-old revealed:
“A good friend, Armando Perez, Pitbull — he lives his life like this, he would send pictures of me, 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.’”
In fact, wife Kelly Preston “loves it,” adding:
“She has always loved the idea.”
Overall, life without hair has “been a lot easier,” explaining:
“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.”
Travolta and Mr. 305’s friendship isn’t too surprising. The actor attended the musician’s hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in December 2018.
