Nothing creepy about this...

We’re just two weeks into January, and people’s commitment to their New Year’s resolution are already wearing thin. Going to the gym and staying fit can be a drag in the dead of winter, so sometimes it helps to have a friend around. You know, someone to spot you during a chest press, hold you accountable for all your reps, or just cruise you while you’re working out alone at 3am.

Luckily for redditor jnitsuj, a man by the name of John Travolta was there to do one or all of those things. According to his post, the famous and allegedly closeted actor came up to introduce himself to the handsome, sweaty man since they happened to be the only two souls at the gym at such an absurd hour.

But what does the star of Pulp Fiction want to talk about when he approaches you at the gym at 3am? Though the guy lucky enough to meet Travolta has since deleted his comment about what the two discussed, one redditor pipped up to paraphrase the conversation:

John approached him and asked if he was married, if he had kids, what he did in his spare time, and then started talking about his private jets. He said they talked for a while.

Based on the background and the color scheme, the gym in question looks to be a Planet Fitness. Which begs the question, why isn’t John Travolta a member of a nicer gym like Equinox? Because he’s clearly not spending the money on hair transplants.
