John Travolta’s Daughter Is All Grown Up And Follows In The Footsteps Of Her Successful Father
At 19 years old, John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s daughter Ella Bleu has decided to enter the acting business and follow in her parents’ footsteps.
She first caught the bug at a young age, putting on plays at her family home in Maine. “Since I was very little, I’ve loved performing, singing, dancing and putting on shows at home for my family and friends,” she told People magazine.
It would make sense that the Hollywood couple of John Travolta, famous for his superstar roles in “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever”, and Kelly Preston, famous for her roles in “Twins” and “Jerry Maguire”, would have a little stage set up for their children in their home.
Ella would perform everything, “from the ‘Hulk’ to Christmas shows and one year we all played different ‘Housewives of Maine’”, she told People, and added that her parents’ attendance was “mandatory.”
Her on-screen debut came in her dad’s 2009 movie “Old Dogs” which also featured Kelly Preston, making the movie a family affair. Her latest movie “The Poison Rose” just came out a few month ago, which she said her parents also helped her prepare for: “When I have any questions, my mom and dad have the best advice, and that’s amazing… I love that it is sort of the family business!” – People reported.
The thriller came out on May 24 and also stars her father alongside Morgan Freeman. Ella said, “It helped so much having my dad there. It was so comforting and he’s the best mentor ever.”
Of course, People had to ask her what her favorite movies are starring her parents. She picked some all-time faves and said, “Oh my gosh, all of them are absolutely amazing, so that’s really hard, but some of my top favorites of my dad’s are ‘From Paris with Love,’ and obviously ‘Grease.’”
She also mentioned “Cat in the Hat” and the Amanda Bynes movie “What a Girl Wants” as those she loves starring her mom.
It is heartwarming to see celebrities nurture their kids and help them blossom into young actors. But like great parents, they would have stood by her side for whatever she chose in life anyway. Ella remarked, “Whatever I would have chosen to do they would have supported me...But they’re really proud of me for (acting)…and that makes me proud too!”
