John Travolta Brings On The Creepy At Oscars 2015: See The Funny Memes!


John Travolta brings on the creepy at Oscars 2015

John Travolta used to be so cool when he starred as Vinnie Barbarino on Welcome Back, Kotter.  But these days he just gives us all the creeps.

We can’t decide if that is due to the strange masseuse rumors, Scientology, or his bizarre award’s show antics. But Travolta stole the show at the 2015 Oscars…but not in a good way.

John was called up on stage by Idina Menzel, after he totally butchered her name at last year’s Oscars. It was his shot to redeem himself, but instead he made things worse.

Last year, John mispronounced the Frozen singer’s name as ‘Adele Dazeem’ instead of Idina Menzel.

This year he nailed her name, but couldn’t help but paw at Idina’s face.

Travolta started rubbing Menzel’s face and chin as he said, “You, my darling, my beautiful, my wickedly talented Idina Menzel!”

Idina looked out at the audience as if to say “help me!”  It made us all uncomfortable to watch.

Travolta also snuck up behind Scarlett Johansson on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, putting his hand on her waist and giving her a kiss.

Scarlett handled the situation well, but judging by her expression she probably would have preferred he stay out of her personal space.

The Saturday Night Fever star also sat staring in the audience at actor Benedict Cumberbatch, looking like a creepy stalker.

Travolta made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars, admitting, “Apparently, I played with her chin too much.”

He also tried to explain why he butchered Idina’s name last year.

The actor explained that someone came to him to tell him that he was supposed to be presenting an award in one minute, and he became overwhelmed by the time crunch as he headed on stage.

He said, “I run into Goldie Hawn. I was hugging and loving her up and forgetting I have to do this bit.”

Travolta said he received a card with Menzel’s name that was different from how it was presented at rehearsal.

He saw the unfamiliar name flash on the screen, stating, “In my mind I thought, what is that name? I don’t know this name!”.
