It is not easy for fans to forget John Travolta as the slick ponytail hitman Vincent Vega from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.
Travolta’s performance in the critically acclaimed Uma Thurman starrer Pulp Fiction not just revitalized his career, but also earned him an Oscar nomination for the Best Actor in a leading role.
The 65-year-old who plays a nerdy celeb-stalking fan named Moose in his upcoming film The Fanatic praised auteur Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
At The Fanatic‘s premiere, Travolta shared his review of Leonardo DiCaprio-Brad Pitt starrer to variety.com. “I love films about what we should have done as opposed to what happened,” he said.
Instead of going, ‘Remember the horror that happened?’ It’s saying, ‘Well, what if we turned back history and actually didn’t do that and did it this way?’” Travolta added, noting Tarantino’s storytelling style. “He did the same thing with ‘Inglorious Basterds.’ You know, it was what we should have done with Hitler, not what we did.”
Travolta also shared that he was a big fan of Sharon Tate, the late actor who was killed by the Manson family and portrayed by Margot Robbie in the film.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has broken box-office records across the world and has grossed $125 million surpassing Tarantino’s earlier blockbuster Inglorious Basterds record.
The film revolved around an aging television actor( played by Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double and longtime friend( Brad Pitt) as they navigate through the changing movie industry in 1969.
