THEIR CHARACTERS

Newton-John and Travolta played on-screen lovers Sandy Olsson and Danny Zuko in the iconic movie. One of their memorable scenes was the on-screen kiss that took place at the beach.

The pair recently made headlines as they re-created a scene from "Grease" in a new Super Bowl commercial.

The actor and actress were merely strangers at the time the scene was filmed, leaving them nervous. However, they have remained close friends since taping wrapped up.

MOTHER-DAUGHTER-DUO

Newton-John continued her career as a singer and recently collaborated with her daughter to release more music duets in an album releasing this April. Lattanzi revealed:

"I'm in the studio this week recording another song, and I'm going to try to convince her to do another one with me."

The two singers lived with each other amid the pandemic and bonded through their love for singing. Previously, they shared a number one dance hit and are hoping to create another one.

FATHER-DAUGHTER-DUO

Similarly, Travolta has a daughter, Ella, with who he shares a close bond. The pair recently made headlines as they re-created a scene from "Grease" in a new Super Bowl commercial.

The Scotts & Miracle-Gro ad premiered before the game and had the father-daughter-duo dancing to the "Born to Hand Jive" choreography he once performed with Newton-John.

The commercial tweaked the scene by using The Surfaces' famous song, "Sunday Best," instead of the original. Indeed, Travolta and Newton-John's kids have inherited their talents.
