John Travolta says dancing with the late Princess Diana was like a “fairy tale”.
The “Grease” star met the late Princess of Wales at a White House party in 1985 and he admitted it was “a great privilege and honor” to be able to dance with her at the party.
He said: “I didn’t think they would ask me to dance with her. I had the great privilege and honor to do it, and I thought, ‘There must be a reason for doing this. and I’d better give it my all. “. It meant leading the dance right and making sure we had fun. It was the easy part, but just greeting Diana appropriately, being confident and asking her to dance was a complicated task. “
And John went to explain how it was “a very special magical moment”.
He added to Esquire Mexico magazine: “Think about the decor. We were at the White House. It’s midnight. The scene is like a dream. I walk over to her, touch her elbow, invite her to dance. She turns around and gives me that. Captivating smile, just a little sad, and accepts my invitation. And we were there, dancing together like it was a fairy tale. Who could imagine that something like this would ever happen to them. ? I was smart enough to mark it in my memory as a very special magical moment. “
John is best known for her role in “Grease” alongside Olivia Newton-John and she previously confessed that she felt “nervous” before her first on-screen kiss with the actor.
