John also said Kirstie and wife Kelly Preston are best friends and how. “It’s great to know two people love you so much.”
 
Calloway commented on what a romantic Travolta was, taking Preston to a Barbra Streisand concert on her birthday. John added, “I also took her to Paris! With all her friends, and we celebrated for a whole week there.”
 
Travolta’s next starring role is in the 2013 film “Killing Season,” with Robert De Niro.
