John Travolta Praises Friendly Hollywood

John Travolta thinks Hollywood is "friendlier than ever".

The 56-year-old star - whose breakthrough role came in 1977's 'Saturday Night Fever' - thinks studios were previously "intimidating and threatening", leading to actors becoming insecure but now believes people in the film industry are keen to see their peers succeed.

He said: "Hollywood is more friendly now than it's ever been. When I started out in the 70s, the business side of Hollywood was dominant.

"Books on the techniques of business intimidation were really popular at the time. I forget the titles now, but they were all about intimidation and making a person feel threatened so they could be manipulated.

"The artists were made to feel insecure, the studios got more powerful and no one wanted each other to do well. Those were the old days.

"I don't find that now: artists hang out with other artists, and the business people no longer rely on intimidation as a part of their modus operandi."

The 'Pulp Fiction' actor - who is a member of the Church of Scientology - also revealed he believes in karma and always tries to treat people the way he would like to be treated.

Travolta told GQ India: "I do believe that what goes around comes around, but I also believe that you create your own destiny. I've noticed in my life that karma is instant: whatever's coming to me, I get back right away. Yet, I notice that with other people there are delays . I find that interesting."
