John Travolta and Kelly Preston are in Sydney, Australia today for the Qantas gala. As you can see, he persists with that singular patch of black spike on his chin, leftover perhaps from all the follicle regeneration they performed on his head, like a lonely piece of sod that, for some reason, got separated from his family, looking forlornly at the lawn that grows in solidarity while he’s stuck between two pieces of sidewalk. The upside? At least he gets to be closer to the food.

There are a probably many reasons for John Travolta’s growth. None of them, however, involve a movie role. And I love that putting a hand on the hip like this is still the thing to do for a man of JT’s generation.
