The actor is at the Cannes Film Festival promoting his new movie Gotti , and was honored with the Variety Cinema Icon Award Tuesday evening. There was a party to celebrate the occasion, complete with a live show from 50 Cent. That’s when “Just a Lil Bit” started playing, Travolta took the stage, and people’s phone cameras started rolling.
In Travolta’s defense, it’s not the easiest song to groove to solo outside of a school dance in 2005. Nonetheless, Twitter has been enjoying the opportunity to see the typically graceful actor seem relatably out-of-his-element.
Travolta should serve as irrevocable evidence that we all eventually dance like awkward old white men https://t.co/vVopv57Nep— T-Bob Hebert (@TBob53) May 16, 2018
