THE HOUSEHOLD NAME
John Travolta 71 credits
John Travolta can get away with anything. He can fondle all the lady chins he wants. He can make all the awful Scientology movies he can possibly bankroll. He can mispronounce the names of Broadway’s biggest stars. He’s John Travolta, so he’ll still have multiple movies come out in any given year.
See also: Nicolas Cage, who has a knack for choosing the worst movies imaginable, but he’s a Coppola and an Oscar winner — so there. Then there’s Nicole Kidman, whose recent flops have been particularly memorable. Rather than get a theatrical release, “Grace of Monaco” (2014) went straight to Lifetime this year. But if you think that’s going to slow down the Oscar winner’s career, think again.
