Think John Travolta has an ego? This is what he said on a red carpet the other day. He said that by turning down the role in Green Mile he gave Tom Hanks his career. That Tom basically owes him for the success Tom has.
"Green Mile I probably should have said yes to. But I gave Tom Hanks a career! What you turn down can be a gift to someone else. There is enough to go around."
You would think that he was joking until you read about the fact he really thinks it was a gift. OK, a couple of things John. Green Mile was in 1999. How many Academy Awards did Tom Hanks already have before Green Mile came out? Also, I'm not sure that the film is really career making. A great role for sure, but I'm not sure if it is something that would make or break a career.
Now, here is another piece of reality for you John. Do you actually think the producers would take you over Tom Hanks? Do you think they came up with their dream list and you were above Tom Hanks? Honestly? You really believe that? I don't know what they have everyone smoking over at the Celebrity Centre, but you need to share that because anything that can make you believe your own hype like that is some good stuff. Apparently Tom Cruise must be smoking it too.
I just can't stop laughing. I can't believe he seriously thinks he made Tom Hanks' career. Maybe he just took a long nap from the late 80's and slept through the 90's.
