Hot chocolate fan John Travolta

Dec 5 2012, 11:04am CST | by

John Travolta is obsessed with hot chocolate and collects different cocoa powders from around the world.

John Travolta collects hot chocolate.
The 'Grease!' actor - who has children Ella, 12, and Benjamin, two, with wife Kelly Preston - says the sweet drink reminds him of Christmas, and he loves the way different varieties from around the world have very different tastes.
He said: ''It represents winter wonderlands, it represents Christmas. I've collected various types of cocoa from around the world.''
He then showed talk show host Ellen DeGeneres a number of different types, explaining how Brazilian cocoa powder has a ''hint of cinnamon and pepper'' which differentiates it from types from other countries.
However, a seemingly unimpressed Ellen replied: ''Smells like chocolate.''
John, 58, went on to explain that people should be careful how they handle cocoa powder because any impurities from air or touch can affect its quality.
He said: ''Never blow on it. Like a fine wine, it changes the quality of the chocolate. So, never, ever blow on it.''
John was appearing on Ellen's show to promote his festive album with Olivia Newton John, 'This Christmas'. All proceeds from the record are going to charitable causes.
And the actor's share of the money will benefit the Jett Travolta Foundation - named in memory of his autistic son who died aged 16 after suffering a seizure in the Bahamas in January 2009 - and he hopes the organisation can support people dealing with similar conditions, as well as other handicapped and underprivileged kids.
He explained: ''Autism and seizures are the least known areas of illnesses and I feel bad that there's so many people dealing with this and there are no answers for. So, I felt like starting a foundation that will help that. Plus, I widened it. It's also for handicapped children and the handicapped Olympics. It's also for underprivileged children. So I widened my purpose a bit there, too.''
Olivia - who survived breast cancer - will give of all of her proceeds to her eponymous Cancer and Wellness Foundation.

Aug 25 2014 9:25pm CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

Is Gwen Stefani the new John Travolta? The singer's slip-up at the Emmys on Sunday definitely puts her in "Adele Dazeem" territory. While presenting the award for outstanding variety series with her fellow The Voice coach Adam Levine, Gwen botched the name of host Stephen Colbert's show; after doing so, nominee Jimmy Fallon rushed the stage to grab the trophy away, saying, "This is unbelievable, she said it wrong, so there must be a mistake. It's just very inter ...

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 Sterling’s former assistant claims she never had sex with the billi ...
