John Travolta Supports Olivia Newton-John As She Battles Cancer

He was recently asked about Olivia while he was on the red carpet for The Fanatic.According to People, John said, “She looks incredible. She doesn’t look any different than [she did] years ago, and I’m very proud of her.”Grease isn’t the only movie that they starred in together either. They were both in the 1983 film Two of a Kind as well. Over the years, they stayed close, and John said that they still text each other.

I’ve been through her having a child, getting divorced, losing her sister. She’s been through my getting married, having children. It’s wonderful and full of shared memories.”Photo: Wikimedia Commons
In addition, in a past interview, Olivia chimed in about their friendship. “We did something life-changing, making that film. [At the premiere] you got the feeling from the energy that something was happening. It was a huge response. I feel grateful to be a part of that and to have worked with him. We’ve stayed friends ever since.”Olivia speaks out about her cancerPhoto: WikipediaOlivia is currently battling cancer for the third time. This time she has stage 4 breast cancer. Instead of feeling sorry for herself though, Olivia admits her diagnosis has helped her live life to the fullest. She says she is lucky that she has been through it three times and is still alive. How great that John is supporting her!

When you’re given a cancer diagnosis or a scary honest diagnosis, you’re suddenly given a possibility of a time limit. The truth is, you could get hit by a truck tomorrow. So every day is a gift, particularly now.”Olivia tries to live life to the fullestPhoto: Wikimedia Commons
“It’s something I’m living with,” she continued, speaking about her cancer. “I see it as something in my body I’m getting rid of. I don’t talk about a battle or a war, because I think that sets up that kind of feeling in your body like you’re battling something strange inside you. [I] let it go and tell it to leave and talk to my body to heal itself and don’t try to make it that. Because that takes up your whole life and your whole being.“I kind of have a way of dissociating and compartmentalizing it. Otherwise, you become a victim, which I don’t want to be and am not. Or you become a slave to it and talk about it all the time, which I try not to do either.”It is so great to see John and Olivia stay close and support each other after all of these years!This story originally appeared at Do You Remember by Lauren Stewart.Source
