John Travolta says his 'good friend' Pitbull inspired his new bald look

John Travolta rang in the new year with the debut of a freshly-shaven head — and now the "Gotti" star is revealing the inspiration behind his new look.

“A good friend, Armando Perez, Pitbull — he lives his life like this and he would send me pictures of me, I have all my hair, and he’d superimpose no hair and say, ‘I prefer this,’ so I thought: 'You know? Maybe there's enough between my friends, my family, the people who work for me, kind of championing this whole idea that maybe it’s time to actually do it,'” Travolta, 64, recently explained to Extra.

As for his wife Kelly Preston’s reaction, Travolta said that she's actually been on board with the idea for a while.
