John Travolta was a huge star in the 80s and 90s. But his Pulp Fiction days are long behind him. His latest hit was in 2007’s Hairspray playing the mother of the movie’s heroine. A far cry from his “ladies’ man” image. While he’s had a small measure of success recently on the small screen for his role in American Crime Story, his movie star days are long gone. It could be that the controversy surrounding his private life has finally caught up with him.
While many recognize John as a talented actor, what they might not know is that he can really hold a tune. In 1976, he released the song “Let Her In”. It spent five months on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number 10. It also reached number 16 on the Adult Contemporary chart. Then he struck gold in 1978 with his hit musical “Grease,” co-starring Olivia Newton-John. Thirty years later, he performed a duet with Miley Cyrus called “I Thought I Lost You” for the Disney movie Bolt.
