From the proud yet charming Danny Zuko in Grease to the clever but lackadaisical Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction, John Travolta has portrayed several characters that are hard to forget. For more than four decades, he has graced our TV screens and movie theaters with his presence. And he still doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. He has made Hollywood his home. But the road to stardom is never without any challenges. How did John Travolta surpass them all?
26 years of marriage with Kelly Preston and three beautiful children, plus a successful career to boot, John Travolta is a lucky man. However, his relationship with Preston has always been surrounded with rumors and scandals. Even after one of their children passed away, they remained together. By now, you’d think these two people could not have been more in love. Sadly, speculations of their breakup have finally surfaced. Though, only time will tell if their romance will actually end in divorce.
In an interview with People Weekly, John Travolta admitted that the first love of his life was Diana Hyland. Sure, she was 18 years his senior. And sure, she was his “mother” in the show The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. But that did not stop them from enjoying their time together. In fact, things were going well for the both of them until unfortunately Hyland was diagnosed with cancer and died just a year after. This loss was a big blow to the actor, one that would take years to overcome.
