Damn it. I’ve had about eight hours sleep in the last 48 hours, but a deal’s a deal. We’re going to talk about hair pieces.
Something you’ll never see John Travolta or Kevin Spacey do:
Now, you know men on screen adhere to some pretty weird beauty standards themselves, and the thing is, while women aren’t allowed to go grey, men are supposed to retain their hair. Because hair is a biological marker, conveying youth and fertility. That’s your history lesson, and here’s another: Frank Sinatra wore a wig.
Or, as Mr. Travolta would say, “Hush your mouth, Vincent Lezwis!” Travoltify your name, like I did, by clicking below 😉 .

The day after the Oscars last year, the show’s producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron received a call from John Travolta apologizing for fumbling the name of singer Idina Menzel. Travolta’s mispronunciation — Adele Dazeem — had become a trending topic on Twitter, been shared endlessly on YouTube and Vine and helped enliven the most viewed Academy Awards telecast in more than a decade.
“John said, ‘Oh, God, I hope I didn’t ruin your show,'” Zadan recalled, in a recent interview from a backstage office at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, where he and Meron are preparing for Sunday’s Academy Awards. “We said, ‘You made our show. The social media went berserk, and the show became historic because of you.'”
