John Travolta shared a tribute to his Grease co-star Olivia Newton-John at the Oscars.
John Travolta paid an emotional tribute to his good friend and Grease costar, Olivia Newton-John at the Oscars on Sunday night.
The actor presented the new Memoriam segment at the Oscars during the ceremony, which honours some of Hollywood’s greatest stars who passed away over the last year.
He then held back tears as he gave a nod to Olivia, who died of breast cancer in August 2022.
“They’ve touched our hearts, they’ve made us smile, and became dear friends. Who we will always remain hopelessly devoted to,” he said, tributing the song Olivia sung in iconic musical Grease back in 1978.
As he continued to get choked up, John welcomed Lenny Kravitz to the stage and he performed his 2004 hit Calling All Angels on the piano.
In the background, pictures could be seen of stars such as Ray Liotta, Angelo Badalamenti, Jean-Luc Goddard, Irene Cara and Julie Reichert.
Taking to Twitter, fans praised John for his bravery after his wife, Kelly Preston also passed away from breast cancer in 2020, and his friend Kirstie Alley died from colon cancer in December.
One person said: “Poor #JohnTravolta! He has recently lost 3 of the loves of his life!: his wife #KellyPreston #OliviaNewtonJohn & #KirstieAlley That’s a lot for anyone!”
