John Travolta was pictured at the gym with is bald spot but appeared with a thick mane just two days later

Anyone who has watched the 2007 remake of Hairspray featuring Disney’s finest Zac Efron and ex-Nickelodeon child star Amanda Bynes, is used to seeing John Travolta in a wig.

But the rest of the planet may have been slightly shocked at the actor’s changing appearance last week.

The 60-year-old who played Tracy‘s mother Edna Turnblad in the flick, unintentionally revealed that he likes to have luscious locks both on set and off.


John’s secret went viral after he was pictured displaying a receding hairline and short hair shaved close to the scalp for a gym session at Planet Fitness in Florida on Wednesday.

Perhaps the star didn’t expect to run into anyone for his 3am workout you might think but happily chatted away with a fan and posed for a selfie anyway… which later made it to community website Reddit. Yikes!

However, John‘s new pal Justin Jones claims that it was John who approached him, asking about his personal life – which led to the exercise enthusiast discussing his wife and stepdaughters – and what he does for a living.

John is married to actress Kelly Preston and the pair have two children together, Ella, 14, and Benjamin, four.

Their son Jett tragically died aged seven in 2009 after suffering a seizure.

Apparently the Grease star asked for his card to inquire about outdoor furniture prices from the woodwork buff, but sadly Justin doesn’t carry business cards in the gym.

He was left with the lasting memory of a chummy photo from the encounter with the film star though. Winning! Not for John though…

His love for wigs was exposed just a couple of days later when he stepped out for the Living Legends of Aviation Awards in Los Angeles on Friday.

Hosting the 12th annual event, John suddenly had a shiny brunette bonnet to face attendees including Harrison Ford and astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
It wouldn’t be the first time John has donned a lace-front hairpiece, which is designed to give a natural-looking hairline.

He has seemingly been adding youth to his appearance with the item in several different styles for a while now and has been seen in taking a break from the wearing a wig in between public appearances, such as when he is on family holidays.

We imagine most of Hollywood’s men are trying a bunch of beauty tricks to enhance their looks so John‘s changing tresses shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

Although we can’t deny that we’ve been gazing at these before and after pics for far too long now.
