John Travolta claims Justin Timberlake copied his dance moves from 1970s movie hits Grease and Saturday Night fever. The actor is adamant he was the inspiration for Timberlake’s choreography, but plans to raise the bar in new movie musical Hairspray.
“Justin Timberlake does have my moves, for sure. I have to give him the kudos for that. There’s nothing holding that boy back.”
John Travolta also talked about his new movie, Hairspray, “Oh yeah, it’s a full-throttle musical. It’s my first musical since ‘Grease’ and interestingly enough, it’s almost ended up like a sequel to it. ‘Grease’ took place in 1959, lets say, and ‘Hairspray’ takes place in 1962. The choreography is great, you’re going to see gimmicky numbers. I do a whole Tina Turner dance thing. I enjoyed that and in the beginning, Welcome To The ’60S is kind of like a big, extravagant number.”
