Travolta has had a long and successful career, but what is next for him, we don’t know. Perhaps in the age of Netflix where TV is king, he will do more work like “The People vs. O.J Simpson: American Crime Story.” Maybe the days of big-budget movies like “Saturday Night Fever,” “Grease” and “Pulp Fiction” are behind him. Perhaps he will decide it’s time to focus on his family and his love of aviation?
What we do know is that whatever Travolta sets his mind to, he goes for it, full throttle until he has reached the top of his game with it. Back in 2016, some new opportunities were being offered to him for stage and screen, so we wait with bated breath to see what he comes out with next.
His Romantic Preference
No one is really sure where Travolta’s romantic preferences lie. He appeared to be happily married to his wife of many years, Kelly Preston, with whom he has had three children. However, with a string of allegations from men relating to unwanted romantic advances from Travolta, it is hard to continue denying his situation.
Travolta is clearly fed up with such claims and decided to speak out about it in an interview with the Daily Beast he was quoted as saying, “I found it most offensive with the loss of my son. I felt like that was the lowest I’d ever felt. [That] stuff is always going to be interesting to somebody, but you stay away from family. This is every celebrity’s Achilles heel. It’s just about people wanting money. That’s all. It happens on many levels.”
Actors on Actors
It is essential to try and stay relevant in Hollywood, and even though John Travolta’s career is well established and has a strong reputation, he still thought it would be a good idea to appear on the PBS for Variety special, “Actors on Actors” with another hugely popular star, the one and only Rob Lowe.
The two chatted about the allegations relating to Travolta’s supposed gross misconduct and his preparations for the role of Robert Schapiro in “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” which had an all-star cast including the likes of David Schwimmer, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Nathan Lane.
After overcoming hardships and personal tragedies together for so many years, it seemed like nothing could come between the loving Travoltas. However, in some cases, there is not a lot a couple can do against a higher power.
In 2018, Kelly was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer — a diagnosis the family kept away from the spotlight. After two years of treatment, at the age of 57, she sadly passed away. John officially announced her passing in an emotional Instagram post, praising her courage and the support she's had throughout that difficult battle. She will forever be his greatest love.
My Dearest Olivia
After facing so much heartache in his personal life, John Travolta was lost for words when he discovered that his dear friend Olivia Newton-John had finally passed away after a long on-and-off battle with breast cancer.
Shortly after hearing the tragic news, the star took to social media, posting a throwback photo of the two and adding the following caption: “My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better. Your impact was incredible. I love you so much. We will see you down the road and we will all be together again. Yours from the first moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John."
