Rob Lowe and John Travolta revealed during Variety and PBS’ “Actors on Actors” series why they have to fight their statuses as Hollywood icons.

“What I’ll get more is that, ‘We don’t want to lose the value of having this very familiar face,'” Travolta said about filmmakers not wanting him to undergo drastic physical transformations for roles.
