John Travolta has joined a host of celebrities who allegedly just can’t keep the needle away from their faces. It’s understandable that as one grows older in Hollywood, the desire to look younger grows with it.
But if you are used to the John Travolta of Grease, then look away, because his appearance in the hit show The People v. OJ Simpson might make you laugh.
Travolta plays Hollywood legal hotshot Robert Shapiro in the show, the Daily Mail has reported.
The social media is abuzz with comments from fans.
One comment states, “Is it me or does John Travolta look a teeny bit odd?”
Another one makes a humorous comment, saying, “John Travolta’s wig and brows deserve a spin-off series of their own.”
Sir Matthew Bourne says, “Watching #OJ Simpson drama on @BBCTwo – not bad but #John Travolta is looking pretty bizarre these days?”
Twitter user tishtoshtess wrote, “#ThePeopleVsOJSimpson Is that John Travolta or just a terrifying botox lookalikey? John, oh John. What happened man!”
The comments were particularly directed to his bushy eyebrows and speculated that he may have had some work done.
Some people have also compared his appearance to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Jo_LaTerriere wrote, “It’s like Travolta’s face is actually melting #ThePeopleVsOJSimpson,” an observation that more than a few made, including @SpringRain88, who commented, “Travolta looks like a waxwork of himself that someone left near the radiator.”
The story talks about the conviction of former American football star OJ Simpson.
John Travolta is known for his performance in Saturday Night Fever, for which we won an Oscar.
After his successful career in the 80s, Travolta was cast in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction in 1994. He showed his dancing skills in the film, which brought him into the limelight again.
However, the Hollywood star, who has been in the news for the right reasons always, is now being criticized for his appearance. Some even went as far as to say that he looked like a “waxwork figure of himself.”
In the highly anticipated series, The People v OJ Simpson: Americna Crime Story, Cuba Gooding Jr. plays OJ. There are quite a lot of shocking scenes in the series. One among them shows OJ holding a gun when friend Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer) calms him down and pleads him to not commit suicide in his daughter’s room.
“This is where my daughter sleeps,” Robert begged, the Mirror reported. “Don’t kill yourself in Kimmy’s bedroom.”
OJ is still jailed in the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada, after being convicted of assault, kidnapping, criminal conspiracy, robbery, and using a deadly weapon in Las Vegas in 2007.
In 2008, he was sentenced to 33 years in prison with a possibility of parole.
However, in 1995, he was declared “not guilty.” But in 1997, a jury asked OJ to pay $425 million in damages to the families Nicole and Goldman.
“OJ says everybody thinks Nicole was a saint, but she wasn’t and Ron didn’t have any business being over at the house anyway,” a prison source said.
The series The People v OJ Simpson is a true crime series on FX. The crime is narrated by its characters. OJ, who was a famous football player, brought together a “dream” defense team.
Robert Kardashian, played by David Schwimmer, was a defense lawyer and a very close friend of OJ’s. The trial is often labeled as the “trial of the century.”
However, the complexity and intricacy of the case have been overshadowed by the face of John Travolta. Do you think John Travolta may have had some work done on his face? Is it distracting you from enjoying the series?
