John Travolta Wins Worst Actor Award At The Razzies For LIMP BIZKIT Frontman's The Fanatic

It's deserved, in a way.


Limp Bizkit vocalist Fred Durst's movie The Fanatic attempts to tell the story of Moose, played by John Travolta, and his obsession-gone-too-far with movie star Hunter Dunbar. The movie is spectacularly awful and earned both Durst and Travolta spots at the Razzies for Worst Director and Worst Actor.

While Durst lost out to Cats director Tom Hooper for Worst Director and The Fanatic lost out to Cats for Worst Picture, Travolta came away with the Worst Actor award. Which might be a little unfair – dude was only working with what he was given, which clearly wasn't great.

Travolta was tracked down shortly after filming and called working with Durst maybe his favorite experience he'd ever had.

Speaking to TMZ cameras he said "Maybe my favorite experience I've had. He's so generous, and such an artist and he allowed me to create a character that no one else would allow, I mean, it's really a wild character and I felt very free to do that."

When the TMZ cameraman asked if Durst gave Travolta a lot of leeway, Travolta clarifed "A lot of leeway. I had great ideas and he had already edited this film in his imagination, so he knows how he's going to put it together, so he knew how to let me free within a boundary."
