    We Love Grease

  • tsquared

    John, your bald. We all know it. Quit with the sprayed on hair, wigs, toupees etc.

  • Lauren

    His face looks werid?

  • betduke

    Grease? Isn’t that what he wants men to massage him with?

  • Lisa

    Jared, obviously you didn’t pay attention the day they taught addition and subtraction at your school. If the play opened in 1978 and the current year is 2012 than that makes 34 years. 2012-1978=34. Stop being such a PR kiss ass and pay attention to your post. You just made yourself look stupid.

  • Lori

    who ever does his hair either has a tremdous sense of humor or is legally blind

  • seeaaaa

    Travolta your hair looks stiff…maybe who should get someone to massage it out, or better yet rip of the rug

  • Carlos

    To: Lisa you commented above the writer looks stupid because of his math skills. Well honey you need to go back to school for reading and comprehension. The author clearly states the play on broadway opened 40 years ago. Then the movie was made in 1978. Who looks stupid now.

  • seeaaaa

    @Carlos: oh damn carlos (snap)

    CONGRATS, I LOVE Grease such a classic. I’m not sure what’s going on with the hate campaign recently against this man in terms of his private life but seriously, what’s happening with this society. Which star is next?

    Whether he’s gay or not or likes to wear wigs, toupees etc. That’s his business and people desperately trying to make money off him because they’re stating he’s gay is stupidity at a new level. SO WHAT?

    If he wants to shout it from the roof top, so be it AND if not who the HECK cares, it’s 2012? He only has to answer to himself and his family, thus meaning not even to the gay community.

    He’s a great actor and that’s all I care about. He looks just fine.

    Saying that, I think all Gays and Lesibans in all types of industries in the public eye should come out and ignore any agent/management talk that they should keep things quiet, when they’re first starting out.

    Reduces time in stress, haters are limited on attacking you in court, and you have a much more enjoyable life.

    Does the world end when you say you are gay or lesiban, to my knowledge a big fat NO. People just gossip in a short amount of time and move on, plus if you truly have a wonderful family they will support you no matter what.

    Generally, fans with any form of above intelligence don’t care as long as the person in question is making great movies etc.

    Anyway, my sounding off is over, CONGRATS to Shirley MacLaine – one hell of an amazing actress and well deserved. Looking forward to seeing John in Savages.

    @Carlos: So funny. I could already sense how wrong she was as I was reading her post.

  • the_boyfriend

    He looks like something you’d have a nightmare about.
    Creepy and dishonest man needs to come out.

    Grease, the stage musical, is 40 years old this year. However,
    John Travolta was not in the original cast. Barry Bostwick,
    the Mayor from Spin City, was the original Danny Zuko and
    got a Tony nom. for it.

  • l

    was his beard – i mean wife – there with him?

  • SPOCK?

    Dr. Spock?
