John Travolta: Career lows don't bother me

Jul 5 2013, 11:42am CDT | by

John Travolta says career lows don't bother him.

The 'Pulp Fiction' actor - whose Hollywood career has spanned four decades - has revealed he doesn't worry about suffering lulls in his acting career because he feels incredibly blessed to still be working in films.

He explained to The Guardian newspaper: "You have to understand my origins. I'm from a working class family; we didn't have a lot, but we had the arts. You're talking to a guy who makes a living at doing what he loves doing - acting, singing and dancing. So any career ups and downs were not that significant to me."

While he isn't bothered by dips in his career, the 59-year-old star admits the "losses" he's suffered in his life - including the tragic death of his son Jett at the age of just 16, and the recent loss of good friend James Gandolfini - weigh heavy on his heart.

He said: "The only things that really powerfully impinged on me were my losses and there were many in my life. Those had an impact, but short of that, movies - I love them, but they're not life."

The 'Killing Season' actor and his wife Kelly Preston, 50, mourned the loss of their eldest son Jett in 2009 when the teenager - who had autism and suffered from seizures - succumbed to a deadly seizure.

Elsewhere, John - who also has daughter, Ella Bleu, 13, and two-year-old son Benjamin with Kelly - heralded his friendship with late 'Sopranos' star James as being a "true connection".

The actor previously revealed his close pal, who died of a heart attack last month aged 51, consoled him after Jett's death and "would not leave the city until I was OK".

Aug 22 2014 10:15am CDT | Source: IDon'tLikeYouInThatWay.com

  Much like when a man smells a new and willing vagina, when a woman smells money, there are literally no depths to what she will say or do to get her hands on all of it. These are just fact, people. So, knowing that, Donald Sterling‘s former mistress, V Stiviano, is now saying that Sterling is not only a racist, but a closet homosexual who used her as a “beard mistress”. Let that sink it for a minute. Donald Sterl ...

These issues are inseparable and hold tremend ...

Who's The Man? Hollywood Heroes Defined Masculinity For Millions

Jul 30 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Tony Curtis used to say that he'd learned how to kiss a girl by watching Cary Grant at the movies. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he wasn't just sitting behind Grant at the theater — while also noting that he's hardly alone in taking instruction from films. Movies have always offered a window through which audiences, sitting in the dark, can observe human nature without being observed. A movie theater is where many a boy learne ...
