The EnterPAINment Industry: John Travolta
In a small New Jersey town.
Six kids were running around.
Around the house of a football player.
& an actress, house was full with entertainers.
But not all wanted to be it.
Despite the Gene that was flowing.
Through their veins, some branched off.
But little John decided that he wanted to walk.
He wanted to walk in his parents shoes.
& entertain people with good and bad news.
He wanted to act by seventeen.
& left school to pursue his dream.
He relocated to New York City.
Little John starting touring.
With a company that did plays.
He played roles to be on Broadway.
Eventually, he was noticed.
He grew and was invited.
For a role to be on the big screen.
But first, he was on the small screen.
John started to capture.
The world with his charm and laughter.
He became a pilot and started a family.
In the midst, he showed the doom in the industry.
Travolta is not only an actor. He is a pilot. A private pilot. He obtained his license when he was 22 years old. He used his career to fund it all. Today, Travolta owns several aircrafts. He donated one that he owned to the HISTORICAL AIRCRAFT RESTORATION SOCIETY in Australia. Travolta acted as the man in charge when he flew. He named one of his aircrafts after his first child Jett. Jett passed away in 2009 after suffering a seizure in a hotel while on vacation in the Bahamas. Jett was one of three children from Travolta and his wife, Actress Kelly Preston. He purchased an estate for $4.9 million in Ocala, FL. His home is situated at an airport. He has a runway for his planes. He has a runway that leads straight to his home. Travolta has earned the right to be called a great pilot. He had to emergency land a plane in 1992. The plane almost had a mid-air collision due to an electrical failure. It was risky, but Travolta pulled it off. In 2007, he was inducted into the LIVING LEGENDS OF AVIATION. He served as a pilot for Oprah Winfrey and her crew to Australia.
In 1975, Travolta started to practice Scientology. So, the morals were in place when he met that special someone to share his success with. Before meeting, he showed he was a gentleman at the white house when he danced with the late Princess Diana of wales in 1985. He later dated American stage actress Diana Hyland. Sadly, the relationship. He later found his soul mate in actress Kelly Preston. The two clicked immediately. Some say that it was love at first sight. In 1991, the couple was married. Since that time, they have had fun together. Fun with their children living in Islesboro, Maine. Jett came in 1992, Ella Bleu in 2000, and their last in 2010. The couple describes their marriage as fun. Despite how the two describe it, they suffered daily issues. They attended marriage counseling daily. The two dealt with their marital problems. Those wedding vows they both took seriously. They desired to not be like many actors/actresses that tend to leave their marriage because they cannot face adversity. Even during allegations, Preston was there. In Us Weekly, the couple described their long-lasting marriage as honest and fun. They spend time together all the time. The couple has even acted together. On the big screen they played mixed roles.
The husband and wife took the sudden death of their first born hard. Especially Travolta. He says that he did not think that he would make it through. Since that time, the couple has made their kids their top priority. The youngest son Benjamin helped to make it easy, they were closer. He was private about his family being shown to the public for a while. At the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL last year that changed. The couple made their career affair a family affair. Ella, John’s 18-year-old, stunned the red carpet. She and her younger brother Benjamin. The event was for their parents, Travolta has expressed how his children keeps their interest very high.
The life of an entertainer has ups and downs. The downs could be much but like Travolta, you must fight through it. Travolta the pilot showed how important it is to not put limits on yourself. There is life after entertainment. Travolta the husband showed that those vows are unconditional. The couple did not do the norm in Hollywood, they stayed together. Many are divorced in the entertainment world. Travolta also showed the value of your kids. He suffered a tragedy. One that almost took him out.
