Is John Travolta sick? All we know

John Travolta fought tears while introducing the ‘In Memoriam’ segment at the 2023 Oscars. The Pulp Fiction star choked up as he remembered Olivia Newton-John, his Grease co-star, who died in 2022 of breast cancer. Travolta said:

“In this industry, we have the rare luxury of getting to do what we love for a living, and sometimes getting to do it with people that we come to love. They’ve touched our hearts. They’ve made us smile, and became dear friends who we will always remain hopelessly devoted to.”

Travolta is healthy and has two films scheduled to premiere in 2023

John Travolta is healthy. He is set to star in two upcoming films: American Metal and Cash Out. Therefore, rumors claiming that John Travolta is sick are false.

Travolta is bald because he likes the hairstyle – his baldness doesn’t point to an illness. “It feels great,” Travolta talked to People in January 2019 about going bald. “Listen, my new look came on a whim. It was a New Year’s Eve idea. Because everyone liked it so much, I decided to keep it for a while.”

Travolta has lost friends and family to illness. Diana Hyland, his late 70s love interest, and Helen, Travolta’s mom, died of breast cancer within a couple of years of each other. In 2009, Travolta’s son, Jett, died after suffering a seizure and hitting his head on a bathtub. 

“I am probably less terrified of death than your average fellow now because people so near to me have suffered before their time and I just feel that if they can do it, so can I,” Travolta told The Daily Telegraph in 2014. “I almost feel like it’s disrespectful to fear it when others have been able to do it.”

In July 2020, Travolta’s wife, Kelly Preston, died two years after a breast cancer diagnosis. Two years later, Olivia Newton-John succumbed to the disease. 

In late 2022, a source told the National Enquirer that Travolta hopes he won’t lose more loved ones to cancer. “The most important women in John’s life have been taken from him by cancer,” the source said. “It’s a curse that seems to haunt him and his family.”
