Fairy tales do come true for many people. However, you don’t always have to be a princess for this to happen.

You can be a charming actor with nothing to lose like John Travolta. Well, the actor was at the ball in 1985 and he did not expect to have a dance with the world’s most loved and famous celebrity. Princess Diana was the sensation of the world news and headlines all over the world at that time and John was the last one to assume he’d get to dance with her.

John recalls, “My heart starts to race, you know, and I tap her on the shoulder and she turns around and looks at me, and she had that kind of bashful dip [of her chin] that she did, and she looked up at me, and I said, ‘Would you care to dance with me?’. “It was a storybook moment,” said Travolta.

“We bowed when it was over, and, you know, she was off, and I was off, and my carriage turned into a pumpkin.” Watch the full video below!
