Iconic Hollywood actor John Travolta reveals that he was once advised by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg to accept a role in the American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson

"It was Steven Spielberg. It was Oprah Winfrey. It was Rita Wilson Hanks and Tom Hanks. And it was former Disney magnate Michael Eisner. They all thought it was completely the right move. Spielberg and Eisner were the most enthusiastic," said Travolta.

John Travolta said that an artist's life is not always about riding on the tides. He says he too, has faced some lows in his life and career when his elder son died.

"You have these points in your career when you are associated with high quality, with depth, communication, and things that matter on a social level." Travolta added.

"And when you hit those notes -- whether it be 'Primary Colors', or on the cover of 'Time' magazine, or 'Pulp Fiction', or 'Saturday Night Fever', or 'Urban Cowboy' -- where you're affecting the society on a global level, then you feel a different kind of pride." The actor added.

Travolta continued , "It's beyond the pride of success. It's the pride of... integrity, I guess. You're not always guaranteed to be involved with projects that will hit those notes. When you are, you really do register it."
