John loved being a big


To play Edna Turnblad in the remake of the cult classic Hairspray, John Travolta wore a fat suit. But that didn't stop him from bringing out Edna's sex appeal. "They were determined to make her look like a refrigerator, but I wanted her to look like a woman," John says. "I kept sending the fat suit back until we got it right." It worked! John was the most popular person on set in his Edna costume. "I had large breasts and a large bottom and everyone wanted to feel me up," he says. "But when I took off the costume, everyone left me alone!"
