Poor John Travolta just can’t win. I mean, don’t get me wrong, he’s obscenely rich and famous and most of us would love to have his problems, but relatively speaking Travolta has been taking some tough blows. Travolta lost his son Jett at age 16, Grease costar and good friend Olivia Newton John died earlier this year, and his wife Kelly Preston died of breast cancer a few years back.

What in the name of Lord Xenu is going on here? We all knew Travolta could sing and dance, but little else about him suggested he might like playing for the other team. After all, Travolta married Kelly Preston who was a model, actress, and a dime.
He recalled chatting to the “Grease” and “Pulp Fiction” star in a hotel suite. Read more
