Hollywood vet John Travolta still feels the pressure

Thursday September 27, 2012

He many be approaching his 60s, but John Travolta is still giving it his all on screen.

Famed for his roles in Grease and Saturday Night Fever, John has returned to cinemas after a three-year break for blockbuster Savages.

The actor plays a corrupt DEA agent, and stars alongside Salma Hayek, Blake Lively and Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the new film.

John, 58, said: "The necessity to do well is high at this level. When the industry knows there's a great script and there's a big studio supporting it and the actors are all worth their keep, there is a pressure."

He added: "You want to live up to a standard."
