Travolta opens up about son's death - 2014-02-18
Sixteen-year-old Jett died after suffering a seizure on a family holiday in the Bahamas in January 2009. The Saturday Night Fever star opened up to veteran broadcaster Barry Norman about the tragedy during an on-stage interview at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in central London at the weekend, the BBC reported.
Travolta confessed: "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."
The 59-year-old actor and his wife Kelly Preston have two other children: 13-year-old daughter Ella Bleu and three-year-old son Benjamin.
Travolta credited the Church of Scientology with helping him to recover in the months following his son's death.
"I will forever be grateful to Scientology for supporting me for two years solid, I mean Monday through Sunday," he said.
