American actor, dancer, and singer, John Joseph Travolta has an estimated net worth of $160 million. Born February 18, 1954, in Englewood, John Travolta was the youngest of six children in a family of entertainers; all but one of his siblings pursued showbusiness careers as well. By the age of 12 Travolta himself had already joined an area actors’ group, and soon began appearing in local musicals and dinner-theater performances. By age 16, he dropped out of high school to take up acting full-time, relocating to Manhattan to make his off-Broadway debut in 1972 in Rain, and a minor role in the touring company of the hit musical Grease followed.
In 1975, Travolta was cast in an ABC sitcom entitled Welcome Back, Kotter. As Vinnie Barbarino, a dim-witted high school Lothario, he shot to overnight superstardom, and his face instantly adorned T-shirts and lunch boxes. John Travolta was a huge star in the late 1970s, thanks to the success of TV’s Welcome Back, Kotter and the movies Carrie (1976), Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Grease (1978). His career since has been a marvel of highs and lows: Moment By Moment (1978) was a legendary bomb, but Urban Cowboy (1980) was a pop culture trend-setter; he bombed again in Blow Out (1981) and Perfect (1983), yet he was in the financially successful comedy series Look Who’s Talking (1989-93); he was hailed for a “comeback” and received an Oscar for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction (1994, co-starring Uma Thurman), but the critics famously held their noses for Battlefield Earth (2000). In spite of the lows, he is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood and keeps making movies. Travolta married the actress Kelly Preston in 1991. They had two children: Jett (b. 1992) and Ella Bleu (b. 2000). Jett Travolta died on 2 January 2009 after having a seizure during a family vacation in the Bahamas… John Travolta, like fellow superstar Tom Cruise, is a Scientologist. He has a pilot’s license and owns several aircraft.
