John Travolta dusted off a very special wig for the Cannes Film Festival

71st Annual Cannes Film Festival - 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' - Premiere

Everybody can go home now. Cannes is over. John Travolta raided his Wiglet Vault and literally dusted off the saddest one, and he wore it proudly on the Cannes red carpet Tuesday night. Cannes’ Tuesday night premieres were devoted to Solo: A Star Wars Story and Gotti, which is Travolta’s film. That’s why he wore this special Dusty Grey Wolf Wiglet. That’s why Kelly was there. Enjoy.

Oh, you wanted to see some other photos from the premieres? Here’s Emilia Clarke in Dior. Beautiful aubergine and I don’t even mind the tulle fabric. But I want to attack those fugly “sleeves” with a pair of scissors. Just cut them off entirely and what’s left is the best Dior gown in years.

Doutzen Kroes in a Tom Ford. She looks incredible. Now can everyone go home?!

Hey Lando! Donald Glover was – I believe – the only man who didn’t wear a traditional black-and-white tuxedo. How Lando of him!

Thandie Newton in a custom Vivienne Westwood gown. I actually love this, because I usually love Westwood’s couture pieces. I would have just changed Thandies hair slightly – the dress is enough, there’s no need to go Full Helena Bonham Carter.

Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton Fall 2018. Everything about this depresses me. The dress could have looked cute-ish, but not with those shoes and not with the too-tight slicked-back hair which makes J-Con look like a vulture/skull.

Elizabeth Debicki was there… and she posed with JOE ALWYN. Handsome Joe! Taylor Swift’s Joe. He received the Chopard Trophy for being an up-and-coming talent and for, you know, the Swift thing. I guess he got invited to the Solo premiere too. Debicki is wearing Valentino here.

    Just let yourself be balding, John. That wig is fooling no one.

    • Betsy says:

      It fools me *hangs head in sad shame*

      And it’s not coal black!

      • Goats on the Roof says:

        Oh, Betsy.

        He looks like he skinned a squirrel for that wig.

      • Snowflake says:

        It’s ok Betsy, it fooled me too *hanging head also*

      • Betsy says:

        I can’t help it, Goats! I also fall for all but the most obvious photoshop. I’m a decently bright person, but I will believe lots of lies my eyes get told.

    • AssViolator says:

      It would’ve fooled me if I didn’t know LOL! This wig actually suits him, I say keep it.

      • Nancypants says:

        Yeah, it’s obviously a wig but at least the color is more age appropriate and it matches his beard. Get it? “Beard”

    • tealily says:

      This is his “distinguished” wig.

  2. justcrimmles says:

    What the hell are those ruffles on his sleeves? Is his stylist a low talker?

    • Aang says:

      This is going to be the new look for the 90’s.

    • Mel M says:

      Literally Lol’d at that!

      Seriously though I saw last night that him and Kelly has joined Instagram so I checked out their accounts and they both have a bunch of photos posted with him in that ridiculous thing!! Why doesn’t anyone tell him! Come one Kelly!

    • whatWHAT? says:

      styled by Austin Powers.

      • justcrimmles says:

        He is neither groovy nor does he make me horny, baby, noooo.

        The 90s called, they said they aren’t taking any of this back, so we’re stuck with em.

  3. Lala says:

    I think Thandie looks GLORIOUS!

  4. Betsy says:

    Someone spent too much or not enough time in the Dreamatorium.

  5. Zapp Brannigan says:

    What does PETA have to say about the poor sad creature on Travolta’s head, is there a petition to free it going around?

    The colour of Emilia’s dress is beautiful.

  6. Mamasan says:

    I never realized how thin Jen Connelly is. I hope she is ok.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I noticed that too. she looks awfully thin.

      • bananapanda says:

        One of her parents died a couple years ago and she admitted she lost a lot of weight during the mourning process but I really had hoped she’d gain it back again. I wonder what’s going on with her now.

    • minx says:

      She always looks miserable to me.

    • TrixC says:

      She’s not always been that thin, she used to be known for her curves.

      • ChillyWilly says:

        Yep! She was so voluptuous when she was young. She was not meant to be this thin. She has zero body fat now which is why she looks like a skeleton. Such a shame because she was so stunning when she was young.
        Travolta looks like he has a dead opossum on his noggin. All that money and he can’t get hair transplants? He is so weird.

  7. Steph says:

    Did he steal hair from an irish wolfhound? Lol
    Emilia looks beautiful, Joe pings my gaydar.

  8. Elle says:

    Honestly I actually thought Travolta was looking kind of good? He’s slimmed down, and at least the hair isn’t that like fake perfect black… I didn’t even realise it was a wig though!

    • Josephine says:

      I think he looks good as well. Most of those women have add-ons to their hair, I don’t mind that he does.

    • smcollins says:

      I thought the same thing, that he actually looks good here (which may be a testament to how bad he looked before)!
      And I agree that Emilia’s dress would have been perfection if not for those pointless tissue paper-looking sleevelets. She came thisclose to nailing it.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Yeah, I didn’t think he looks bad at all, though the hair is definitely synthetic to my eye. Shame all of the rumors of his abusive behavior have ruined the effect of seeing him.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        “Shame all of the rumors of his abusive behavior have ruined the effect of seeing him.”

        yeah, this doesn’t get mentioned enough. dude is a predator.

  9. Caitlin Bruce says:

    I find it funny Joe is wearing lifts. He’s was pictured beside Elizabeth the previous day and she was taller than him and now they are the same height? Baring in mind Tom Hiddleston is taller than Joe and elizabegh was taller than him too. Why do men get insecure about that shit? He’s 6”1, nothing to be ashamed about

    • Josephine says:

      she still looks taller than him now – her head is at an angle and her shoulder looks above his. and isn’t it possible that she’s wearing shoes of a different height? i very seriously doubt this guy is wearing lifts.

  10. Malificent says:

    When I first glanced at the picture, I thought it was Chris Evans after a reallllly rough night….

  11. Jayna says:

    I think he looks great, very distinguished and handsome with the grey in the hair and facial hair. Women can wear hairpieces. As long as it looks good, I don’t see the problem. I thought this hairpiece looked nice on him. He was looking horrible there for a few years with that weird black-shoe-polish hair and pasty face.

    I thought Kelly was so much prettier and fresher-looking with that cinnamon brown hair color she wore for quite a few years.

  12. SM says:

    It’s good I ignored Travolta and clicked on the post anyway. Some nice fashion from Thrandie amd Emilia (minus the sleeves). I find it funny and equaly spooky that the “gorgeous” Joe looks like an older brother of Swifty and a younger brother of Elisabeth. And I get really strange vibes from Jennifer and Paul, they continue to look misserable.

  13. Alexandria says:

    If you have to wear a wig, I think that’s pretty well installed and nicely coloured. Matches his facial hair even. A for effort.

  14. Chubcucumber says:

    Debicki won the same award as Handome Joe, that’s why they posed together.

  15. Eric says:

    I really enjoyed Travolta’s “curious george” wiglet from about 12 years ago. It was like a sandpaper hairpiece in a dusty brown-orange hue.
    Magnificent, John!

  16. Veronica S. says:

    Drive by commenting again to mention that I just saw pictures of Thandie’s dress on another site and realized it isn’t just a floral pattern – it’s STAR WARS characters!! She has Finn, Panaka, and Mace Windu on there, the nerd.

  17. susiecue says:

    I haven’t even read the article yet, but that headline has me #DED

  18. Anastasia says:

    Elizabeth looks like a gorgeous damn SWAN! Damn! Instant girl crush.

    • Maum says:

      I know she is so gorgeous. Did you see that Aussie show she was in, set in Tasmania? She was so beautiful.
      She’s my girl crush- I think she’s a mix of Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett.

    • bella says:

      Elizabeth is so gorgeous and when she ism on screen you can’t take your eyes off of her! She has that indefinable “it” quality like Meryl Streep! Also, Thandie looks absolutely amazing! Best dress ever!! I love it and want it! I love Emilia’s dress too!

    • Maum says:

      Called The Kettering Incident- she plays a doctor going back to her home town in Tasmania. Very atmospheric (some Twin Peaks-esque elements) and riveting.
      Be warned of abrupt ending, they are talking 2nd season but nothing in sight so far.

  19. Lexter says:

    I hate when men put their hand so high up a woman’s torso when putting an arm around for a photo. Ick Joe keep your mits to yaself

  20. Maum says:

    Elizabeth Debickie is somewhere between 6’1 and 6’2 I believe.
    I barely recognised her on the 1st pic- she normally stands tall and proud, here she looks like she’s trying to shrink herself!

    I thought Thandie’s hair was gorgeous! OTT but elegant and makes her look really youthful.

    JConnolly, on the other hand, looks very ill. And her legs are scary.

  21. Prissa says:

    MichaelK summed up Travolta’s look perfectly: an electrocuted and mutilated calico cat!

    Too funny!

    Although I kind of like it 😼

  22. emma peel says:

    Jennifer Connelly looks incredible – love her whole look, ditto on her husband.

  23. Avalita says:

    Doutzen Kroes looks ahhhh-mazing.

  24. BJ says:

    He needs a man weave instead of this lace front.

  25. Kim says:

    Is it possible that, after getting shit talked so much over his wigs, he just decided to stop wearing them and this is his actual hair? If so, he needs to do..something..with it. That pelt looks mangy.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      nope. he’s bald. like not quite chrome-dome but close; he’s mostly bald on top but has hair on the sides. there were pics of him with no wig somewhere, could have been on here.

      but google “Travolta no wig” and you’ll see.

  26. LittlefishMom says:

    Your title literally made me spit out my coffee. Lol!!! I’m crying.

  27. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    That’s an odd collection of photos! Thandie wins it for me. Although that black pantsuit is rockin’. Travolta. Man I don’t know. On one hand he looks better than I’ve seen him in years. On the other hand there are wrist ruffles and wiglets. The hair is still being styled the same. I’ve seen him play bald dudes, and he really should go with it. You’d think his Scientology advisors would tell him this…he’s obviously mentally sparring with his thetan which is preventing clarity and the achievement of being clear. He should revisit purification and introspection.

  28. Goodegg says:

    The next time I have to name a new character for a video game I’m playing, I am going to call them “Dusty Grey Wolf Wiglet”

  29. so cool says:

    So guy who was only in 2 films, which no one saw, won a award for rising star? They are more than 20 young actors, who achieved more than him. Seriously I know that this award is nothing and you can buy it, but still. Tay Tay bought her Toy Boy a Dior contract, now this award. No one will persuade me that he woould get it, if he wasn’t a part of Toe. He has a harisma and look of a shrimp. Just like TS.

  30. Chinoiserie says:

    Why men need to be mocked for wigs or hair plugs? Women constantly work on their appearance so why can’t men do the same with the thing they are most insecure about even if it does not look perfect?
