John Travolta Opens Up About His Son’s Death


The Church of Scientology isn’t the most beloved community out there, but for John Travolta, it’s the biggest support he could get. The Hollywood actor expressed his gratitude to fellow members for helping him get over his son’s death in 2009.

His son Jett died from a seizure in the Bahamas during a family vacation. Travolta called it “the worst thing that’s ever happened in my life”.

In an interview with Barry Norman in London, Travolta said, “The truth is, I didn’t know if I was going to make it. Life was no longer interesting to me, so it took a lot to get me better.”

“I will forever be grateful to Scientology for supporting me for two years solid, I mean Monday through Sunday.
They didn’t take a day off, working through different angles of the techniques to get through grief and loss, and to make me feel that finally I could get through a day.”

Travolta also discussed his career’s ups and downs saying that, “It got a little complicated for a few years,” before he managed to get a role in Pulp Fiction.

“A lot of things added up to a five-year period that wasn’t so good for me…
There were people who were much hotter than me who wanted the role, but Quentin Tarantino put his career on the line and refused to make the movie without me in it,” Travolta added.
