Travolta needs some help, all right



Travolta John Travolta compares himself to a couple tragic icons in terms of fame, and says the only reason he didn't end up dead is because of Scientology, the actor tells the Irish Independent.

“I have fame on the level of a Marilyn Monroe or an Elvis, but part of the reason I didn’t go the way they did was because of my beliefs,” he tells the paper.

“People make judgments about it [Scientology], but often they don’t know what they’re talking about,” Travolta says. “I would advise anyone who wants to know about it to read up on it. We [the Church of Scientology] are only getting bigger and we help people all over the world, from disaster zones to drug rehabilitation.”

That's great and all, but do the Scientologists offer help with outsized egos?
