John Travolta fears he'd lose many of his adoring female fans if they really knew what he was like away from the cameras - because he's a terrible perfectionist.

The movie star admits he can be "anal" when it comes to making plans and getting things right.

He explains, "I have a little bit of a perfectionist thing with machines and cleanliness. I like it to work and be neat. I still get knee-jerk reactions to things when they go off centre.

"If there's a plan of some sort and it goes slightly off-kilter I get a little nutty.

"If an employee gets it wrong I get a little anal. I think I'm a little bit of a pain in the a*s that way. That'll help to turn the women away from me."
