“Grease” made them superstars, now John Travolta has to say goodbye to Olivia Newton-John. He commemorates his deceased love of film with touching words.
It’s one of Hollywood’s most famous love stories: John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John danced and sang together as rebellious Danny and shy Sandy with gel quiff and petty coat through America in the 1950s. More than 40 years after its theatrical release in 1978, “Grease” is one of the most successful film musicals of all time and songs like “Summer Nights” and “You’re The One That I Want” are still cult today.
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John became superstars through their roles. But not only the success welded the two actors together, they maintained a deep friendship for four decades. “We love each other, and when you love someone, you don’t let go of contact,” the Hollywood star once said in an interview about his companion.
“I love you so much”
Now he had to say goodbye to her forever. Olivia Newton-John died Monday at the age of 73. On Instagram, John Travolta dedicated touching words to her. “You made all of our lives so much better. Your influence was incredible,” writes the 68-year-old on a photo of the deceased.
