Pulp Fiction. Grease. Saturday Night Fever. These three films heavily define John Travolta’s long and unquestionably successful career in acting. Although Travolta has not had any major blockbusters in the past several years, he more than earned his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Travolta’s extremely high net worth is one of the highest in Hollywood, especially for an actor who has not had a major break in some time. Indeed, his biggest failure, and perhaps the film that ultimately put a huge black mark on his career, was the 2000 failure Battlefield Earth. Travolta is a well-known member of the Church of Scientology. Rumors indicate that Travolta has a desire to leave the church, but is wary to do so because the church is blackmailing him. This reportedly relates to his personal and secret homosexual lifestyle. Considering the actor’s long-time marriage, such a charge could be a career killer, even in today’s more accepting culture. The actor is an extremely accomplished pilot. He not only owns his own planes, but has a runway at his Florida estate that leads right up to his doorway like a regular driveway.
