John Travolta's new shaved look was inspired by bald rapper Pitbull.
The actor debuted his new look last month (Jan19) and tells Entertainment Tonight it's here to stay - and it's all thanks to the Timber hitmaker and his signature style.
"He's one of my inspirations, for sure," the 64 year old shared. "I had this look for a movie called From Paris with Love years ago."
Travolta didn't expect his new look would cause such a stir, but he's thrilled so many people seem to like it.
"I never thought of wearing it as, like, a full-time look, and then my family said, 'Why don't you shave it for the new year?' and then I dared to post it on my Instagram (account)," he continued. "It went crazy, went viral, much more than I ever expected and it made headlines."
Ironically, the last time the Grease star was photographed with hair was at Pitbull's hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on 14 December, and John reveals he has struck up a close friendship with the rapper after working with him on the movie Gotti.
Travolta shocked fans when he first posted his new look in a post on Instagram. In the picture, he posed alongside his daughter Ella Bleu while showing off his salt and pepper moustache and beard, as well as his entirely bald head.
The Pulp Fiction star didn't draw attention to his appearance and simply captioned the shot: "I hope everyone had a great New Year!"
