Netizens are in hysterics after seeing John Travolta's reaction to learning that Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 32, and Sam Taylor-Johnson, 55, are married.

The Grease icon appeared alongside Sam and Aaron - the latter of whom starred alongside Travolta in the 2012 movie Savages - on James Corden's Late Late Show in 2019, where he stood up to show the audience his famous dancing scene with Uma Thurman from Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.

Writer-director Sam and her actor husband Aaron told Travolta they were massive fans of the 1994 box office hit, prompting the 68-year-old to explain the history behind the iconic scene, which saw him and Thurman bust out a range of funky dance moves including The Twist.

This week, however, the interview is making the rounds again on social media, after a TikTok user appeared to catch the moment Travolta realized Sam and Aaron were actually married.

The moment came about as Corden asked Sam what it was like to direct a sex scene featuring her husband, with the host asking: "Sam what's it like directing your husband in a sex scene?" At which point, Travolta's head turns swiftly to his left in shock to look at the couple who are sitting on the couch next to him - he appears surprised that Sam is Aaron's wife rather than his mother.

The TikTok user added a text overlay on the short clip that read: "Travolta's look over when he finds out they are married [...]"

Twitter then got hold of the video, with many people commenting on how hilarious the situation was.

"My new favorite image is this 'john travolta on james corden upon finding out aaron and sam taylor johnson are married and shes not his mother,'" someone wrote.

"That tik tok of john travolta finding out that sam and aaron taylor-johnson are married is so f***ing funny," someone else added.

A third user chimed in with: "john travolta’s reaction to realizing sam [...] and aaron taylor johnson are married was the same reaction i had a few years ago."

Aaron and Sam's marriage has been the subject of endless gossip since they first got together in 2008. At that time, an 18-year-old Aaron was portraying John Lennon in then-42-year-old Sam's directorial debut Nowhere Boy - a movie focused on Lennon's early life. 

Sam had divorced her husband of 11 years in 2008, and at Nowhere Boy's premiere in October 2009 she announced that she was engaged to Aaron, per The Telegraph. The pair married in 2012 and Aaron became stepfather to Sam's two daughters from her first marriage. The pair have since welcomed two more girls. 

The director - who worked on the Fifty Shades of Grey series - stated that Aaron had told her they'd be married before they'd even gone on their first date, telling Harper's Bazaar: "As soon as we finished, he told me he was going to marry me. We had never been on a date, or even kissed."

"And a year to the minute after we met, exactly one year to the minute, I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. In the 10 years we've been together, we've only been apart for maybe two or three days. And those were the worst days of those 10 years," Aaron added.

Though, the now 32-year-old has been vocal about the intense scrutiny he received in the wake of his marriage, especially given their 23 year age gap. "The attention was intrusive. But having to deal with that early in my career probably got me to a place where I can more quickly just go, 'Oh, f*** it' instead of wanting to rip someone's head off for asking questions I don't like," he said.
