Screen legend John Travolta occasionally wrestles bouts of jealousy - over Tom Hanks' career. The Saturday Night Fever hunk confesses some of his biggest career mistakes were turning down roles Hanks subsequently made into hits. But despite his errors of judgment, the 53-year-old is content his other acting projects have made him one of Tinseltown's greatest stars. He says, "I wouldn't trade (my career) for anyone's except Tom Hanks', I don't think." "Other than Forrest Gump and The Green Mile, which I was offered and should have done, and Splash was written for me, I still like my career better because of what I specifically contribute to it." Travolta also turned down the role that went to Richard Gere in AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN.
