John Travolta‘s net worth is expected to be over $250 million in 2021. John Joseph Travolta is a New Jersey-born actor, film producer, dancer, and singer. Travolta rose to prominence in the 1970s, starring in the films ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and ‘Grease’ and appearing on the television series ‘Welcome Back, Kotter.’
He was born in Englewood, New Jersey, on February 18, 1954. Salvatore, his father, was a semi-professional American football player who also operated a tire business, and Helen Cecilia, his mother, was an actress and singer. Travolta was born into a family of six children and attended Dwight Morrow High School before dropping out as a junior at the age of seventeen.
Travolta began his acting career in New York, where he was cast in a touring company of the musical Grease and the Broadway smash Over Here. From 1975 through 1979, he starred as the swaggering Vinnie Barbarino in the ABC sitcom ‘Welcome Back, Kotter.’ It was his first taste of celebrity.
Travolta appeared in the $297 million films ‘Look Who’s Talking’ in 1989. The film was so successful that it spawned two sequels in the following four years: ‘Look Who’s Talking Too’ and ‘Look Who’s Talking Now.’ The 1997 action thriller film ‘Face/Off,’ directed by John Woo, was a critical and commercial triumph. It starred Nicolas Cage as an FBI agent and John Travolta as a terrorist, respectively.
