The actor was going through a slump for several years before the director cast him as hitman Vincent Vega in his critically acclaimed crime movie 'Pulp Fiction', which was released in 1994.

Travolta, 59, can't thank Tarantino enough for choosing him for the highly coveted role - for which he earned a Best Actor Oscar nomination.

John Travolta ''didn't want to wake up'' following the death of his son.

The 'Saturday Night Fever' actor's 16-year-old son Jett passed away in January 2009 after suffering a seizure and the 59-year-old star - who also has 13-year-old daughter Ella and three-year-old son Benjamin with wife Kelly Preston - says the tragedy was ''the worst thing that's ever happened in my life.''

Skyfall Included In Barry Norman's Top 49 British Movies Of All Time


James Bond Barry Norman Alfred Hitchcock

Esteemed movie critic and broadcaster Barry Norman has unveiled his Top 49 movies of all time for a Radio Times supplement. The list, which does not rank films in order, includes works from 75 years of British cinema, ranging from Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps to Sam Mendes' recent Bond movie Skyfall.

Norman harks back to yesteryear for most of his selections, with Gladiator, The King's Speech and Skyfall are the only films from the 21st century to make it onto the list. 1949 and 1995 have numerous selections, including Kind Hearts and Coronets, The Third Man and Whisky Galore! And Secrets & Lies, Sense of Sensibility and Trainspotting. Introducing his list, Norman wrote, "Ignoring for the moment the fact that you will certainly disagree with some, probably many, or maybe even all of my choices, which do you think is the one outstanding British film that I've left out? There are plenty to choose from because mine, like all such lists, is largely subjective." Notable exclusions from the list include This Is England, Wallace & Grommit, Withnail and I, and Billy Elliot.

Reaction to the list has been fairly positive, though one user joked on Twitter, "How Barry Norman can compile a '50 best British films ever' list before he's seen Danny Dyer's 'Run for your wife' is beyond me."

Burton Left Off Britain's Finest Actors List


Richard Burton Peter Sellers Cary Grant Elizabeth Taylor Barry Norman Kenneth Branagh Daniel Day Lewis John Gielgud Alec Guinness Anthony Hopkins Charles Laughton Ian McKellen Laurence Olivier

Movie legend Richard Burton has missed being named as one of Britain's ten finest actors - even though Peter Sellers and Cary Grant both made the list.

The omission of the late former husband of DAME Elizabeth Taylor from the nominations assembled by a panel of experts has angered film fans.

Welsh-born Burton, whose classic movies include CLEOPATRA and WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, died in 1984 following a cerebral haemorrhage.
