John Travolta - John Travolta Jokes About Car Theft

Subscribe to John Travolta alerts

John Travolta joked "at least it wasn't a jet" which was stolen from him this weekend.

The 'Saturday Night Fever' actor compared the theft of his vintage 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL to something out of a movie, but is glad at least his private Boeing 707 plane is still safely in its hangar.

John – who left the car parked in Santa Monica while he visited another dealership on Sunday (18.09.11) - said: "I was out looking for Jaguars and it was a beautiful, spotless dealership and I left it parked on the side. And eight to 10 minutes later, my car was gone.

"And it's like that movie, 'Gone in 60 Seconds', like, who can explain it? But at least it wasn't a jet, although that might be easier to find!"

The 57-year-old star returned to the Jaguar dealer and waited for the police so they could make a crime report, but so far no suspects have been identified and no witnesses to the crime have come forward.

John has held his pilots licence since 1974 and regularly flies his wife, Kelly Preston, and children, daughter Ella, 11, and 10-month-old son Benjamin around the world, which they all enjoy.

He added to E! News: "I frankly just love being in the air, I just love the sensation of flying. And Kelly's very proud of me. She loves flying, the kids love flying—it's a family event."
