A user under the Reddit account “jnitsuj” wrote, “I thought I was at the gym by myself at 3am, then this guy comes up to me and introduces himself,” with an attached pic of himself with the 60-year-old Grease star.
The run-in occurred at a Planet Fitness location in Florida. A separate Reddit user said that the poster in the image with Travolta, jnitsuj, initially deleted a note describing the run-in, how in an extended discussion, the massage aficionado was peppering the Reddit user with questions about his personal life, and mentioned his own passion for his collection of jets.
“I was really confused at first and got really choked up,” the man wrote. “It was surreal for a moment.”
Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston did not appear to be along for the late night sweat session.
Next up for Travolta is FX’s American Crime Story, in which the veteran actor will play attorney Robert Shapiro in an onscreen adaptation of the O.J. Simpson trial. Cuba Gooding Jr. will play Simpson, while David Schwimmer will play Robert Kardashian.
