Kelly Preston was absolutely smitten by John Travolta the first time they met while filming the 1989 movie 'The Experts', the 55-year-old actress recalls on Monday's episode of 'Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen'.
Preston met Travolta at a point of her life when she was not particularly happy about her married life with Kevin Gage, to whom she was married from 1985-87.
She confessed, "Well, I was not that happily married let's put it that way. I was really with the wrong person." She said that she knew Travolta was the one when she saw him walking in all his demeanor. "But this is what I see coming across the lobby: I'm sitting there ready to screen test and I see [Travolta]." The couple has been married for 27 years.
Preston termed Travolta as "the nicest guy I've ever met". When asked what were the best and worst things about being married to him, she exclaimed, "There are too many best things!" She went on to say, "His lips, dancing, fun, laughing. [We still dance] all the time...Kids dance with us, we dance at the house. We go out dancing. Yeah, I love it."
The National Public Radio reported that actor John Travolta for his roles in 'Saturday Night Fever' and 'Welcome Back, Kotter' has been noted for bringing renewed fame to Brooklyn, for which he was welcomed back on Tuesday by the New York City borough.
Member of the New York State Senate, Martyr Golden, announced, "Travolta changed the culture of Brooklyn and America forever in both fashion and music. The movie Saturday Night Fever brought millions of Americans to the dance floor to the rhythm of disco."
The Guardian reported that around hundreds of people had gathered at Lenny's Pizza in Bensonhurst, to get a glimpse of Travolta, who had brought the neighborhood to national and international consciousness in 'Saturday Night Fever'. Lenny's claims that fans still order the same pizza which Travolta had ordered in the opening scene of 'Saturday Night Fever'.
The pair got married in 1991 and had three kids, of whom their eldest son, Jett, died in 2009 after suffering a seizure. Jett is survived by their daughter Ella, 18, and son Benjamin, 8. According to Fox News report, Preston also revealed that she nearly landed Brooke Shield's famous role in 'Blue Lagoon' and went the same high school as former president Barack Obama.
She opened up about Travolta's epic 50th birthday party, "I threw Johnny a surprise 50th birthday and they didn't know each other. So I had literally gotten 350 people to fly in from all over the world. It was the most intense thing. They flew into Cabo, San Lucas and it was amazing."
