Instead, he maybe chose a sequel to "Michael"
I am in constant wonder about which is more miraculous: that John Travolta managed to resurrect his career with "Pulp Fiction," or that he has managed to destroy it anew.
BERLIN (Reuters) - John Travolta, who became an icon for the disco craze with his dancing in "Saturday Night Fever," says he made a big mistake in turning down a starring role in this year's Academy Award winning film "Chicago."
"You're rubbing salt in my wounds," Travolta told Germany's Bunte magazine in an excerpt released ahead of publication on Thursday. "I'm still angry with myself that I turned down the role of the lawyer in Chicago that Richard Gere then got."
Travolta said Gere did a great job with the dance numbers in Chicago, which dominated the Academy Awards and won best picture.
"But oh, how I would have loved to have showed them all what I can do one more time," said Travolta, 49.
