London, March 15 (Calcutta Tube) Hollywood star John Travolta‘s actress-wife Kelly Preston asked him to wear jeans to the Oscars last week. Preston insists the casual look the actor sported at last week’s Academy Awards was deliberate and she preferred it to the more formal suit he had originally planned to wear, reports fashion.ie.
‘I told him that he should do it. I thought it was really cool. He looked hot in the tux! It was an Armani tux. It always fits so well but I just thought jeans would be cool. He’s John Travolta. He can wear jeans with his tux,’ she said.
The actress insisted that, despite criticism of Travolta’s relaxed approach to red carpet wear, he also wore jeans to the premiere of his latest movie ‘From Paris With Love’. And she believes it is a look that could soon catch on.
‘All the men backstage were like, ‘Aw, man, I want to do that’. So who knows?’ she said.
