August 10, 2021

Calling it a “storybook moment,” actor John Travolta is opening up about the night in 1985 he famously danced with Princess Diana at the White House. In the new PBS special “In Their Own Words: Princess Diana,” Travolta revealed it was former first lady Nancy Reagan who orchestrated the whole thing. The “Grease” star said the moment was nerve-wracking. When he asked her, she accepted, and they danced to a medley of songs from Travolta movies.
