Actor John Travolta was so convincing as a woman on the set of his new film Hairspray, that he was hounded by men constantly during the film’s shooting.

Travolta, who plays the role of Edna Turnblad in the adaptation of the Tony award winning Broadway musical, said that he did not have great interest in playing the role of a woman, but he realised how much ‘power woman have over men’, while shooting for the film.

"I had no particular urge to play a woman, but it made me realise how much power women have over men,” Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

The 53-year-old added that men on the set would touch him all over, and that he understood the influence he had on guys as soon as he put on his costumes.

"Guys would flirt with me on set. You just need breasts and a bum and suddenly you have power! Everyone was feeling me. It was fake, of course, but I thought 'This is weird.’” He added.
