John Travolta nearly retired from films after son’s death
Star returned thanks to support from family and fans
HOLLYWOOD star John Travolta said he nearly retired from films after the death of his teenage son three years ago.
Sixteen-year-old Jett died after suffering a seizure on a family holiday in the Bahamas.
John, who shot to fame in Saturday Night Fever in 1977, said he agreed to star in Oliver Stone’s new film, Savages, because it was a “high-end, five-star film”.
He said: “After three years getting a lot of support from my church and a lot of support from people, fans and family, I decided that it was okay to go back to work.”
