John Travolta’s Inflated Ego

John Travolta recently told the “Irish Independent” that he’s as famous as Elvis and Marilyn Monroe but that he escaped an early death like the icons because of Scientology.

The “Wild Hogs” star may be a bit premature in claiming such legendary status. I can see the similarities between Elvis ““ he has resurrected a failing career several times and is currently considered a Hollywood A-lister. But it’s doubtful if Travolta’s stardom will endure as long as those of Elvis or Marilyn. His roles as Vinny Barbarino on the 1970s sitcom “Welcome Back Kotter” and his emergence as a movie star with “Saturday Night Fever” (1976) and “Grease” (1977) hardly give him status as a cultural icon.

Travolta says about his controversial religion in the Irish publication, “People make judgments about it [Scientology], but often they don’t know what they’re talking about,” Travolta said. “I would advise anyone who wants to know about it to read up on it. We [the Church of Scientology] are only getting bigger and we help people all over the world, from disaster zones to drug rehabilitation.”

  1. Curing them of addiction and killing them. If they are such a great religion why don’t they open themselves up to public scrutiny, why so secretive??
