John Travolta: 'Life Was No Longer Interesting' After Son's Death
John Travolta recently talked about the hard time he experienced after his son Jett passed away in 2009, saying that it was "the worst thing that's ever happened in my life." The "Hairspray" star opened up about the pain in a recent on-stage interview at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London.
"The truth is, I didn't know if I was going to make it," he said, as quoted by BBC. "Life was no longer interesting to me, so it took a lot to get me better." The actor added that he "didn't want to wake up" following the sad experience, but he credited Scientology for helping him cope with the situation.
"I will forever be grateful to Scientology for supporting me for two years solid, I mean Monday through Sunday," he explained. "They didn't take a day off, working through different angles of the techniques to get through grief and loss, and to make me feel that finally I could get through a day." The action movie star joined the church of Scientology in 1970s.
Travolta's eldest son with wife Kelly Preston passed away at the age of 16 after suffering from a seizure during a family vacation in the Bahamas. Jett had history of seizures and he was autistic. The pair are also parents to a 13-year-old daughter Ella and a 3-year-old son Benjamin.
