JOHN TRAVOLTA: FROM HAIRSPRAY TO HOGS
It wasn’t easy prepping John Travolta for reshoots for his movie Wild Hogs. The movie is about four suburban guys who hit the road on bikes looking for adventure and it stars Travolta, Martin Lawrence, William H Macy and Tim Allen. Hogs wrapped last summer and since then, John filmed Hairspray, starring in drag as Edna Turnblad. He happily packed on a few pounds for the hefty Edna character, so when he was called in for Hog reshoots recently, he didn’t look the same. Wardrobe had to scramble to alter stuff and find clothes that fit and disguised his size. Travolta’s hair was a totally different color so it had to be re-dyed to match his Hogs hairpiece. Did you know he wears a full toupee that goes from temple to temple? When he’s wearing a baseball cap it means he doesn’t have his hairpiece on. The whole hair process was done in total privacy behind closed doors – presumably so nosey people like us won’t take a photo.
