Famed actor John Travolta recently approached a stranger at a gym, much to the stranger’s surprise — and then snapped a photo with the “choked-up” fan.
Travolta, who during red-carpet and other such events is usually seen sporting a full head of hair, allegedly thanks to a hair piece, opted instead to take the photo showing his rarely-seen thinning hair.
The fan uploaded it to social media site Reddit.
“I thought I was at the gym by myself at 3am,” the man wrote.
Travolta approached the fan and immediately struck up a conversation.
“I was really confused at first and got really choked up,” the man also wrote on Reddit. “It was surreal for a moment. He asked what I do for a living, if I was married, if I have kids, and what do I do with my spare time.”
The fan also said the two started talking about flying. Travolta, 60, is a certified pilot.
Travolta is also reportedly (while not working out at the gym at 3 a.m.) working on a new cable show depicting the O.J. Simpson trial, “American Crime Story,” in which he will play lawyer Robert Shapiro.
