SINGAPORE STOPOVER: John Travolta flew his family into Singapore Sunday as part of a round-the-world holiday but spent Monday promoting a limited-edition watch recently launched by Breitling to mark the 60th anniversary of its Navitimer Chronograph, touted as the oldest mechanical chronograph watch still in production. At a press conference, Travolta said he hopes his next acting turn will be in a remake of “The Killer,” a 1989 Hong Kong action movie directed by John Woo. “I’m hoping it will, but am not sure…I’ll have to meet Mr. Woo and find out,” he said.
Breitling’s press representatives made the unusual move of sending out an e-mail before the press conference encouraging journalists to ask Travolta, who is facing sexual harassment allegations, about his family. In response to a question about the allegations, Travolta merely said: “My family is having a blast traveling around the world. We’re having a good time on the road.”
