John Travolta talked about the loss of his wife, Kelly Preston and how he dealt with the grief. As you may know, the woman died last July after a two-year battle with breast cancer.
During a new interview for Esquire Spain, the actor became candid about the entire grieving process, saying it was a very ‘personal’ one.

“I’ve learned that grieving someone is personal. The individual of grieving and experiencing your own journey is what can lead to healing. This is different from someone else’s journey. The most important thing you can do to help someone else when they are grieving is to let them live and not complicate things with yours. That is my experience. The movement of life and a journey that you leave behind in people, that is your legacy I think. ‘
He went on to say, “How they interpret my life will be different for everyone. And that’s fine because I will be. The best thing I do is try to get to that part of life where I can enjoy it, and that joy is experiencing dance, music … and people. I will ensure the future of my children, help them do what they want to do with their lives. That is what I do with Ella now with her films and teach her to work in the profession. Ben is barely 10 years old. I want to help him evolve because he has his whole life ahead of him. ‘
Last summer, John shared the tragic news of his wife’s passing.
