connectVideoJohn Travolta shocks fans with a fresh new look
John Travolta posted a Instagram photo of his daughter celebrating the new year, but the fans were shocked to see he had no hair.
John Travolta has been sporting his bald head for a few months now, but the actor was not always so accepting of his new look.
The 65-year-old was promoting his new project with his daughter, Ella Bleu, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday when he opened up about his hair loss and how a number of very special people helped him with the embrace of the cue-ball.
“I was friends with Pitbull — u know, all of us guys who do this, have to stay together,” the “Grease” star revealed. “Both he and my family encouraged.”

Actor/writer Lena Waithe, who was filling in for Kimmel told Travolta, “your hair is pretty famous.”
“You had this, like, beautiful mane,” she added. “And then you posted this picture … people kind of went a little crazy, it went viral, were you expecting that?”
“No! It’s just a hairstyle,” said Travolta. “The last time I went this viral was when I mispronounced Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars.”
Waithe, who also just shaved her head, said she was nervous about the deed, because she said that you don’t know what kind of form of the skull is under all your hair. But this is not the first time Travolta fans have seen him bald.
