John Travolta and his late wife Kelly Preston were always supportive of one another's careers. For those who do not know, the couple acted together in five films.


Travolta and Preston were picked to star in the movie "The Experts," as reported by Cheat Sheet. That was the first project they did together.

The 1989 comedy film was also memorable for Travolta and Preston. The couple first met while filming it. In 1991, they tied the knot. They shared three beautiful children - Jett, who died in 2009, Ella, and Benjamin.

The next movie they both starred in was "Battlefield Earth" (2000). It was based on the sci-fi novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, according to Cheat Sheet.

Travolta and Preston's third movie was "Old Dogs." They were cast in the 2009 comedy as a couple again, although they were separated.

Preston played Travolta's ex-wife in the movie. Her character returns after seven years with twins he never knew about.


Meanwhile, in the movie "From Paris with Love," Preston just showed up in a cameo. In spite of the fact that the late actress was not in the credits as a woman on the Eiffel Tower, a lot of fans of the couple recognize her.

Because of her incredible work, she was acknowledged with several awards.


The last movie they did together was "Gotti," in which they played real-life husband and wife. Gotti was a biopic about crime boss John Gotti, played by Travolta.

Preston, on the other hand, played his wife, Victoria. Directed by Kevin Connolly, "Gotti" was also the last movie of Preston.


On July 12, she passed away at the age of 57, two years after being diagnosed with breast cancer. As reported by Metro, she chose to keep her treatment private.

Travolta confirmed her death in an emotional Instagram post. He wrote, "She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many."


In his announcement, Travolta did not forget to thank the doctors and nurses who took care of Preston. He also thanked his wife's friends and loved ones who were by her side during her last days.

Preston was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on October 13, 1962, according to IMDb. She first earned global attention with her role as "Marnie Mason" in the 1988 film "Twins."

Aside from being a great actress, Preston was also actively associated in education, drug reform and numerous philanthropic groups. Because of her incredible work, she was acknowledged with several awards.
