Even though John Travolta has had a career that has spanned decades, he will always be best known for his role as Danny Zuko in “Grease.” This was the role in which he played the dark-haired hunk who shattered the hearts of women all over the globe. Ella Bleu Travolta was born to John and Kelly Travolta in the year 2000, not long after John married fellow actress Kelly Preston, who at the time was considered to be one of the most beautiful women in the world.
As a result, it should not come as a shock to learn that Ella Bleu is stunningly beautiful; she inherited her good looks from both her mother and her father, and she has followed in their footsteps not just in terms of their appearance but also in terms of their professional accomplishments.
Since the 1970s, Travolta has been one of the most famous actors in the world. He is best known for his acclaimed comeback in the 1990s, when he starred in films such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Get Shorty,” “Face/Off,” and many others. However, his career began in the 1970s, when he played iconic roles in films such as “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever.” His late wife Preston was also a well-known actress, having starred in films like as “Jerry Maguire” and “For the Love of the Game” until her untimely death from breast cancer in July 2020 at the age of 57.
On the set of their 1987 film, “The Experts,” the pair had their first encounter. Despite the fact that she was married to someone else at the time, Preston acknowledged in an interview in 2018 that she “was genuinely with the wrong guy” at that period. The fact that she was married did not prevent the love from developing further. As their relationship progressed, they began to spend more time together. Before long, Preston and Travolta were engaged, and by 1991, they were planning to create a family. Their children Jett, Ella Bleu, and Benjamin were born in the years that followed after their marriage. Unfortunately, Jett Travolta lost suddenly in 2009 at the age of 16, the victim of a sudden seizure that was followed by a tumble that caused him to hit his head. The death of the couple’s first child was a devastating blow to both of them. In subsequent interviews, John Travolta referred to the passing of his teenage son as “the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my life.”
Despite the hardships that have been faced by the family, Travolta, Ella Bleu, and Benjamin seem to have a strong bond, especially the one that exists between the father and daughter. Ella, who is now 22 years old and has renowned parents of her own, has started a career in the entertainment industry as an actor. It should come as no surprise that Ella Bleu, who inherited her gorgeous good looks from both of her parents, is interested in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. In an interview with People published in 2019, she said:
Since I was a very young child, I’ve always had a passion for being on stage, whether it be singing, dancing, or putting on concerts at home for my loved ones.
Her first role as an actress was in the film “Old Dogs,” which she debuted in all the way back in 2009; the film also included her two parents and Robin Williams in starring roles. Newsner cites an interview that Ella Bleu gave to Celebrity Pulse in which she said, “It was fantastic to perform alongside my parents in my first movie, and it made it a lot simpler.” Since then, she has had another starring role with her father, this time in the film “The Poison Rose.” The working connection between the father and daughter team seems to be one that is quite nice and excellent.
In addition, she feels the same amount of affection for her father as he does for her, and she plans to send him a touching note on the occasion of Father’s Day in June of 2020. Ella Bleu accompanied a photograph of the two of them dressing up as John Travolta and holding a martini with the following description for the photo:
“I have many things that I like in you, but one of the things that I respect the most about you is that you never stop loving and helping your fellow humans. You are so kind and kind, and because of that, you motivate me to become a better person each and every day. I am grateful that you brought so much love and compassion into my childhood. I will be eternally grateful to God for blessing me with you, and please know how much I adore you. Wishing you a wonderful Father’s Day, Daddy!!
In addition, Ella Bleu sent a birthday message on Instagram for her younger brother Benjamin, who reached the age of ten on November 23, 2020. The stunning photograph captured him beaming as he was on a boat, and Ella Bleu penned the following caption for it:
“I hope you have a wonderful birthday, Benjamin!!! I cannot believe how fortunate I am to have you in my life, since you are the kindest child in the whole world. In spite of the fact that I am your elder sister, you continue to educate me a great deal on a daily basis. You are the finest friend I could ever ask for, and I love you more than anything in the world.
In 2019, Ella Bleu made an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in a joint interview with her father. During the interview, the upcoming star discussed what it was like to grow up with famous parents while speaking to guest presenter Lena Waithe. It should not come as much of a surprise to say that the young lady had some fascinating tales to share. Ella Bleu said that she had met a number of renowned people during her life, including Oprah Winfrey, due to the fact that she had spent her childhood on film sets.
Ella Bleu shared her story with a chuckle and a revelation, “I truly lost my first tooth with Oprah on a boat.” “You know, I simply don’t know how it occurred (that she was a tooth fairy),” she said. I couldn’t contain my enthusiasm. I believe I’ve managed to swallow the tooth.”
Even while this may not have been the best scenario, the younger Travolta reassured Waithe that there was “still money beneath (her) pillow.” The rising singer also divulged that, despite the fact that her father is widely known as the “King of Cool,” he, like the majority of fathers, is prone to having times that are very “uncool.”
“There was really a moment when (actor) Taylor Lautner was coming over to the home, and I was like – I adored him,” Ella Bleu said in her recollection of the event. “And my friends and I were digging up images of him and just kind of investigating him… and (Travolta) knew that,” I said. “And he was very aware of it.”
Naturally, Travolta humiliated his daughter in front of the star she admired the most, just as any other father would do. When they arrived, the first thing he said to them was, “Oh, Ella was just looking you people up on the internet.”
Travolta did not waste any time in defending his behavior. “You know a father’s point of view is, you know, Ella truly likes Taylor Lautner, wouldn’t he be delighted that Ella is looking him up?” “You know, a father’s perspective of view is, you know, Taylor Lautner genuinely loves Ella.” Waithe agreed with Ella Bleu that it was not the “coolest” method to go about doing what needed to be done, despite the fact that his train of thinking may have been humorous. Fortunately, Lautner thought it was humorous. Ella Bleu’s “bright crimson” expression, however, was unaffected by this fact.
In addition, Travolta spoke on what it was like to co-star in “The Poison Rose” with his daughter and another Hollywood veteran, Morgan Freeman. He lauded Ella Bleu’s innate ability and creativity, noting that “her ideas, like (Waihe’s), arrive very quickly, and they come to completion very readily.” He went on to compare her creative processes to those of Waihe. When it comes to pursuing her ambitions, Ella Bleu reportedly has a natural talent, which her doting father lauds as “something of a gift.”
When she was seven years old, she told her father, “daddy, I want to make a movie.” And then a week later, the screenplay for “Old Dogs” starring Robin Williams was sent to me to read. Now that daughter is 18 years old, she came to me and said, “Daddy, I believe I’m ready to go back to movies,” and bam! After a week had passed, this screenplay starring Morgan Freeman was sent to my office, and I told my wife, “Honey, we’re on!”
In an interview with People, Ella Bleu revealed that she had asked her renowned father for assistance when she was working on the set. She said, “Having my dad there helped so much.” It was really reassuring, and he is the most helpful guide someone could ask for.

She counted herself quite fortunate in the past to be able to seek acting guidance from both of her parents. Only her father is still alive now that her mother has passed away. People magazine pointed out in the same piece that Ella Bleu had previously stated:
“It’s very cool that if I have any issues, my mom and dad are always there to give me the greatest advise… I just like the fact that it’s kind of like a family company!”
After being questioned about the films in which her parents’ careers as actors have been the most memorable for her, Ella Bleu gave the following response to the outlet: “There is an incredible array of films from which to chose, including many great hits and masterpieces.”
“Oh my gosh, all of them are absolutely amazing, so that’s really hard (to pick),” she exclaimed, “but some of my top favorites of my dad’s are ‘From Paris with Love,’ and obviously ‘Grease.'” On the other hand, her favorites from Preston’s filmography are “The Cat in the Hat,” and “What a Girl Wants.”
There are a lot of people that feel the same way as she does, and that is that it is really difficult to decide which of all of these amazing movies is the finest. Ella Bleu continued talking about how she came to the conclusion that she wanted to pursue a career in acting by saying, “Whatever I would have decided to do, they would have supported me.” But they are very proud of me for (acting), and it makes me proud of myself as well!
After her unexpected death in July 2020, Ella Bleu’s mother will sadly not have the opportunity to see the growth of her daughter’s profession. After Preston’s two-year “brave struggle” against breast cancer, which she had kept a secret from the public, John Travolta was the one who broke the devastating news to the rest of the world. Preston’s battle had been kept private. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of everyone engaged in the medical field as well as her own doggedness, she was not able to beat the disease in the end.
When John Travolta took to Instagram to share the terrible news of the demise of his wife, he wrote:
“It is with a very sad heart that I notify you that my lovely wife Kelly has passed away after a two-year struggle with breast cancer. She fought this disease with all of her might. She battled bravely with the affection and support of a large number of people by her side. We will be eternally thankful to her physicians and nurses at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, as well as to all of the other medical facilities that have been of assistance, as well as to her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side throughout this difficult time. Love and life as lived by Kelly will live on in our memories forever.
After that, he continued by saying that he would be taking time off in order to be present for children. Ella Bleu and Benjamin as the group of people grieved at the loss of Preston:
“I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so please forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother. But I want you to know that I will be able to sense the outpouring of love that you have for us in the coming weeks and months as we recover. All my love, JT.”
Since that time, John Travolta often publishes on Instagram about his children and constantly extols the virtues of each of them. In November of 2022, he posted a picture of a cat with Ella Bleu in the background along with a comment that was a combination of a dad joke and a lovely praise. The caption went as follows:
“It’s important to share things that are beautiful every once in a while. (and the kitties aren’t too shabby, either)”
Travolta also uploaded a glam image of Ella Bleu on his Instagram account in September 2022, along with a caption expressing how “proud” he was of her debut at New York Fashion Week. Ella Bleu maintains her own social media profile, and she now has more than 652,000 followers on Instagram. Ella Bleu, a typical member of Generation Z, shares a wide variety of stuff on her social media account; nevertheless, the focus of a lot of that content is on her family.
The fact that Ella Bleu often shares photographs of herself and her family having a good time together demonstrates how strong the ties that bind them really are. Ella Bleu wrote a heartfelt obituary for her mother and posted it on Instagram after she died away. Ella Bleu wrote the following letter, which was accompanied by a stunning photograph of Preston:
“You are the most bold, powerful, gorgeous, and loving person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.” Everyone who has been fortunate enough to have met you or to have ever been in your company will unanimously agree that you exude a glow and a light that never fails to shine and that makes everybody who is around you feel instantaneously joyful. I am grateful that you are always there for me, no matter what. I am grateful for the love you have given. I am grateful to you for your assistance, and I am grateful to you for making the world a better place. You have added such splendor to my life, and I have no doubt that you will do so for the rest of my days. I love you very much mother.”
It is obvious that the Travolta family is a tightly knit one, and having each other to lean on at difficult times like this will be the single most beneficial thing for them. They have shown throughout the course of the last many years that they are there for one another no matter what, and this is the only thing that really matters to them. It is very evident that Ella Bleu has a strong connection to her family. Ella Bleu resembles her mother not just in her stunning good features but also in her kind nature. As she matures, both in terms of her personality and her appearance, we are looking forward to seeing her acting career flourish. We have no doubt that she is her family’s source of pride.
