John Travolta To Disclose Diana Secrets

Mar 08, 2005 | 9:47am EST

Hollywood actor John Travolta promises to reveal intimate secrets of his intense friendship with late British royal Diana, Princess of Wales in his forthcoming autobiography.

The Pulp Fiction star first met Diana at a White House party in 1985 hosted by then American President Ronald Reagan--and his wife Nancy told Travolta the princess was desperate to dance with him.

The 51-year-old recalls, "I was at the lowest point of my career and yet in that room I felt like a frog who had been turned into a prince. I timidly crept over and said, 'Excuse me, princess, would you care to dance?'

"And she dipped her head and looked up at me and she blushed. Then she said, 'I would love to.' As they started playing songs from my movies they all left the floor. We were dancing alone. I said, 'God, we're in the middle of the floor with the whole world watching!'"

Travolta adds, "I'm writing my book. If I wait any longer, it'll be two memoirs and I can't do that. I guess for readers in England the most interesting thing is going to be the stuff about Princess Diana.

"It will include a lot of things I've never discussed with anybody."
