FamousThe pictures spread all over the world: John Travolta (67), who cruised across the dance floor with British Princess Diana in 1985. A special moment for the actor as well, although he was not prepared at all. Esquire Mexico tells this. He also talks about the death of his wife Kelly Preston: “Grief is very personal.”
“I didn’t think they’d ask me to dance with her,” says John Travolta. He was allowed to dance with the princess at a dinner party at the White House in 1985. “But I got that honor. That’s why I thought,“ There has to be a reason for this, so I better give my all. ”That means leading the dance formally Good, but also made sure we had fun. That was the easy part. But greeting Diana the right way, being confident, and asking her to dance were more difficult tasks. ”
So Travolta calls the event a “fairy tale”. “Consider setting. We’re in the White House, midnight. It really looks like a dream. I got up to her, touched her elbow, and invited her to dance. She turns around and shows me a charming smile – a little sad – and accepts my invitation. And here we are, dancing together as if it were a fairy tale. “The singer won’t forget their dance soon.” Who would have thought that something like this could happen at any time? I was smart enough to remember it. , A magical moment. ”

The most important thing you can do to help someone who is feeling grief is to give them space to do it their own way, not to overburden you with your grief. Suppose you are at a funeral and you are very sad. Then someone approaches you.” He has more sadness. Then you won’t have time to come into your grief. At least, that’s how I tried it, “it seems.
“You don’t want to know how many people have called me about their extreme grief. I didn’t know what to do with this, because I already have a lot to treat myself,” Travolta continues. “Of course it wasn’t a bad intention, but in the end you comfort others. That’s why I think it’s important to have a place where I can be alone with my grief, without anyone interfering.”
Travolta also explains that he now mainly focuses on his two children, Ella (21) and Ben (10). “I will secure their future, and help them do what they want to do with their lives. I do it now at Ella: I teach her about working in the film industry. Ben is barely ten years old. I want to help him grow, because he still has his whole life ahead of him.”
