John Travolta's Ridiculous Florida Mansion Is More Of An Airport
Many people are aware of John Travolta's fondness for aircraft, as well as the fact that the actor is a fully-accredited pilot who often flies himself to shoots and press events.

Three runways (!)

A 16-car garage (for when you have friends over!)

A gym

A miniature golf course

Several (number undetermined) airplane hangars

John Travolta Talks Losing Son, Jett

John Travolta
John Travolta and Kelly Preston are mourning the loss of their son, Jett, who passed away 7 years ago yesterday. According to Radar Online, Travolta posted a heartfelt message on Facebook. Jett was 16-years-old when he died after having a seizure while in the Bahamas with his family.

"They say the hardest thing in the world is losing a parent. I can now say that isn’t true. The hardest thing in the world is losing a child. Someone you raised and watched grow every day. Someone you taught how to walk and talk. Someone you showed how to love. It’s the worst thing to ever happen to anyone. He...

10 Celebrities Besides Steve Harvey At Miss Universe Who Had An
The Internet is ablaze today with the news that actor Steve Harvey accidentally announced the wrong winner at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant Sunday night on live television. Harvey misread his cue card and temporarily crowned Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez when in fact it was Miss Phillippines Pia Wurtzbach who had won the title.

That made for a couple very awkward minutes of television as Harvey was forced to go back on stage and admit his mistake. The crown was then literally snatched from Miss Colombia's head and placed on Miss Phillippines instead.

Harvey's probably going to have a r...

Leah Remini Scientology Tell-All Being Published, And Lawsuits F
Leah Remini is coming out. No, it's not what you think, but it does have to do with revelation and relief. The ex-Scientologist aka "troublemaker," has a bone to pick with the Church of Scientology. Leah is publishing a tell-all book about the inner-workings and secrets of the covert organization. Apparently, it's a no-holds-barred biography that is sure to attract a flock of lawsuits.

According to a Vanity Fair report, Leah Remini authored a book titled, "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology." Arguably, it's appropriately named due to the likely fallout that will ensue from L...

John Travolta & Kelly Preston To Divorce? Actor Spotted Without
If a celebrity is spotted without his or her wedding ring, people immediately start assuming there's trouble in the marriage (just ask Halle Berry). The same can be said for John Travolta.

The actor was recently photographed by paparazzi who, with their keen eyes, discovered he wasn't wearing his wedding ring. He was also photographed in August without the band on his ring finger.

According to Radar Online, when he noticed the paparazzi trailing him, he purposely concealed his left hand in his pocket.

If John Travolta did have a gay affair, no one is going to find out about it... at least not in court. According to Radar Online, a lawsuit filed by Doug Gotterba, Travolta's former pilot and rumored former lover, will not be getting any additional attention because Gotterba has reportedly asked to have the case thrown out.

As previously reported by Star Pulse, Travolta was going to have to testify in court after Gotterba accused him of faking confidentiality documents. Sources believed that Travolta would have been forced to come clean about his relationship with Gotterba, which may or ma...

The Most Embarrassing Celebrity Moments Caught On Film
We've all done embarrassing things. It's human nature. It's bad when these incidents happen on camera, but it's worse when you're famous and caught on film during one of these not-so-fine moments.

Justin Bieber puked on stage at a 2012 concert in Arizona -- not once but twice. He was in the midst of performing "Out Of Town Girl" when it happened. He turned his back to the audience and regurgitated. He rushed backstage as his back-up dancers continued to do their thing.

The pop star later came back to finish his set, but after a few more songs, he told the crowd: "It's hard for me, you kn...

John Travolta has no intention of watching "Going Clear," a controversial film about Scientology. The film aired on HBO in March, and several members of the church have criticized it. Church leaders have also blasted the film, calling it "dishonest."

Oscars 2015: The 6 Best Moments Of The 2015 Academy Awards

Why Was John Travolta Caressing Idina Menzel's Face At The Oscar
You know, you almost feel bad for John Travolta. Guy hilariously butchers one name at last year's Oscars, and it's all anyone can talk about for an entire year.

But the world will be moving on from "Adele Dazeem" jokes now. And to replace them, we'll be doing "John Travolta, Why Are You Petting My Face?" jokes until the 2016 Oscars.

At this year's Oscar ceremony, the former "Pulp Fiction" star finally got to put Adele Dazeem behind him. When presenting the award for Best Original Song, Idina Menzel came out first, only to announce her co-presenter: Glom Gazingo. Aka, John Travolta.

The Worst Upcoming Movies Of The Next Five Years

The Worst Upcoming Movies Of The Next Five Years
There's a lot of great movies headed our way in the next half-decade. "Star Wars" films. Marvel films. Probably a few Best Picture winners in there, too.

But not every single film Hollywood's earmarked for the next five years is a guaranteed win. In fact, we'd say that quite a few of those future releases are going to be pretty awful. Unmitigated disasters, box-office bombs, Razzie winners. Films that draw the ire of critics like worker bees to their queen.

Think we're exaggerating? Well, click ahead and see just what the future of cinema has to offer.

It's not good.

Did Tom Cruise And The Church Of Scientology Tap Nicole Kidman's
On Sunday, the Sundance Film Festival hosted the premiere of "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief," a new documentary about Scientologists from filmmaker Alex Gibney.

And according to those who saw "Going Clear" at the festival, the film has revealed startling new information about Scientology, and just how deeply it cuts into the entertainment industry.

It's so much more horrible than you'd think.

For one, the film claims that the Church was not a fan of Tom Cruise's wife Nicole Kidman (her father is a psychiatrist, and psychiatrists are the enemy), and at Cruise's request...

If that wasn't common knowledge, it totally is now.

Recently, the actor was spotted on Reddit, of all places. A random user was headed to the gym for a 3 AM workout, and who does he find but the former "Pulp Fiction" star getting his pump on.

Travolta introduced himself to the Redditor, they talked for a bit and (presumably) went their separate ways.

The image went up on Reddit, titled "I thought i was at the gym by myself at 3am, then this guy comes up to me and introduces himself." Shortly after, it rocked upwards to nearly 4,000 upvotes and a similar ...

John Travolta Returns To TV After 40 Years

John Travolta Returns To TV After 40 Years In 'American Crime St
Way, way (way) back in the day, John Travolta was known as a TV actor, and not a film one. Travolta was Vinnie Barbarino on the hit series "Welcome Back, Kotter."

Then, nothing for 40 years (barring a couple of minor cameos).

But now, Travolta's returning to the small screen. The former Barbarino will be starring in FX's upcoming true crime series, "American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson."

Travolta will play Robert Shapiro, Simpson's attorney, in the series, itself a spin-off of FX's "American Horror Story." Like "Horror," "Crime" will be an anthology series- that is, each sea...

7 Celebrities Who Like Scientology A Little Too Much
When former King of Queens star Leah Remini went on the Ellen Degeneres Show last week, she used it as an opportunity to clearly state that she believes she is better off since leaving the "religion" of Scientology last summer.

The now Xenu-free Remini stated that she and her family have found "new ways to reconnect" and that leaving the religion "has really brought us closer together."

While we're happy for Remini, but we can't help but hope that some other famous celebrities would follow her example.

The 14 Most Ridiculous & Iconic Death Scenes In Hollywood
Hollywood movies are full of extravagance - fast cars, beautiful women, international men of mystery, evil villians and giant, global conspiracies. It's also full of elaborate endings, many of which ultimately culminate in at least one death. The problem is, in that quest for a real show-stopper, some of these deaths cross the line from 'iconic' to ... well, 'ridiculous.' Here, we will pay homage to the Hollywood deaths that have gone down in history as iconic, as well as dissect what ones ultimately went too far.

Idina Menzel Says She 'Benefited' From John Travolta's Oscar Flu
There's no bad blood between Idina Menzel and John Travolta, who messed her name up at the Oscars earlier this month.

The actor was ridiculed online after calling the "Frozen" star "Adele Dazeem" when he introduced her to the stage to perform "Let It Go."

Menzel has brushed off the incident, telling "He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we're buddies and it's all cool." She added: "Please. I mean, I've only benefited from it!"

An embarrased Travolta also sent Menzel a huge bouquet of flowers to apologize.
