Travolta loves Cannes. It's where Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" debuted two decades ago and won the festival's top award, the Palme d'Or. This year's trip is more of a victory lap while premiering "Gotti."

Kelly and John have been married for 27 years. The couple suffered a tragic loss back in 2009 with the sudden death of their 16-year-old son Jett Travolta. Following the tragedy, the family welcomed their son Benjamin in 2011.
