Kelly Preston

She auditioned for the role that Brooke Shields eventually got in "The Blue Lagoon", and went on to star in such '80s fare as "Secret Admirer", "52 Pick-up", "Space Camp" and "Twins". She was never afraid to show boobage on film during that time, and turned in some pretty solid comedic and dramatic roles. Was married to actor Kevin Gage and dated Clooney AND Charlie Sheen for a while before settling down with Johnny.

She seems quite bonkers.

Is it the whole Scientology thing, R1?

by Anonymousreply 202/28/2012

An old story is that after she broke up with Clooney (or vice versa), she had possession of his dog. She calmly took the dog down to the pound and had him put to sleep.

by Anonymousreply 302/28/2012

was she in the cult before she met John?

by Anonymousreply 402/28/2012

R4, I think she joined Scientology after she met John. Funny you say "cult", as she was in a cheesy horror flick in 1988 called "Spellbinder" about a girl who belonged to a strange cult.

by Anonymousreply 502/28/2012

I remember her saying "Scientolgy rocks!" to Barbara Walters, and feeling repulsion.

She seemed chillingly fake/empty/dumb.

She's about as talented as a dog turd drying in the sun.

Why did she break up with Clooney?

She and George lived together and had a pet pig. I'd love to ask her who has the bigger dick between Clooney and Sheen.

She was wonderful as Clarissa's daughter on the CBS Soap CAPITOL

Wonder why John Conboy fired her?

Soon after she hooked up with JT, I saw her give an interview where she said, "I had a Grease poster on my wall as a kid and I said to myself, "one day I'm going to marry John Travolta!""


by Anonymousreply 1302/29/2012

R13, I heard thought the story went that she saw a Saturday Night Fever poster at a movie theater and knew instantly that she was going to marry JT in the future.

by Anonymousreply 1402/29/2012

After the "I Was John Travolta's Gay Lover" story hit the National Enquirer, Johnny-boy got married to a woman so fast it would make your head spin. Preston was an obscure starlet; the story goes that Travolta called her up and said "would you like to be my girlfriend?" He didn't have to ask twice. She and Travolta work hard to maintain their image as a Perfect Hollywood Couple, but they are both strange, fucked-up creeps. It was so awful what they did to their son Jett; they denied him the medical attention he needed and when he died they had a 15 minute memorial service for him and that was the end of that. I think they were ashamed of him and glad to be rid of him.

In the gritty thriller "52 Pickup", she plays a wayward young girl hooked up with a rich and married businessman (Roy Scheider). Her performance in the film is haunting. In a scene early in the film, she's at a porno house party where some of the extras are real porn actors like Ron Jeremy and Amber Lynn.

This must be scientology bearding 101- as Katie told a reporter once that she kept a picture of Tom in her room as well. Both Kelly's and Katie's stories sound creepy.

Oh and did she date Sheen first? Maybe he was soo traumatic that is steered her into a life of bearding...

She dated Emilio before he handed her off to his brother Charlie.

by Anonymousreply 2003/01/2012

She never had any talent and only had her looks and tits to rely on. She jumped at the chance to marry travolta so she could be rich. Wasnt that her in waiting to exhale that angela bassett slugs?

by Anonymousreply 2103/01/2012

LOL yeah, that's her in Waiting to Exhale, R21. She's Angela Bassett's husband's mistress.

I never heard of her dating Emilio, R20. As for dating Charlie being traumatic, I can believe that. There was an incident involving a gun while she was dating him. As the story goes, Kelly was folding a pair of Charlie's pants in the bathroom when a gun fell out of the pocket and fired. The bullet hit the toilet, and a piece of shrapnel broke off and hit Kelly in the arm. She had to be rushed to the hospital, and I believe it was right after this that she left him. She was with George first, then Charlie (who she was actually engaged to), and then Johnny T.

I kind of like her, and I do think she has some talent. Interesting that she has played lesbians in a number of films, considering Scientology's views on the subject...

by Anonymousreply 2303/10/2012

Interesting point, R23.

She's still pretty and looks the way Nicole Kidman ought to look, had she not turned herself into a wax work.

I want to ponder Kelly's possible lesbianism, as well.

She was an original cast member. She was suppose to be the heroine of the show, with ties to the matriarch of the middle-class family (McCandless)

Debra Farentino stole her thunder.

Jett may be dead, but maybe John will love me again if I can bear him a new child, Overheadd Compartmentt Travolta!

by Anonymousreply 3103/11/2012

She met Travolta on a movie they did together called "The Experts." This was in the years before Tarantino revived his career. It's a pretty bad movie but enjoyable in that bad-80s movie way. From imdb trivia:

[quote] Paramount wanted director Dave Thomas to go back and reshoot some scenes before its limited release in 1989, but in the intervening two years star John Travolta had gained over 30 pounds, which prevented any new scenes being shot.

R29's video is a scene from The Experts.

She was great in Christine.

by Anonymousreply 3603/11/2012

She went by "Kelly Palzis" in her very first film, "10 to Midnight". She had a bit part in that one. It was an uber-sleazy film about a sicko who went around in the nude stalking and killing women in Friday the 13th-esque ways.

According to Lainey, Kelly is more into scientology than John. Lainey also "implies" Kelly & John have an arrangement, and are deeply best friends. Loving and close relationship.

Thanks for linking KP's scenes with Famke Janssen as a lesbian couple in Eulogy, R35. I LOVE that movie, about a dysfunctional family reuniting for the patriarch's funeral. Preston's really excellent in it, and Hank Azaria is fantastic (as a stoner porn star), as are Ray Romano (really!) and Debra Winger. It's a great overlooked black comedy.

Was that her ass in 52 Pickup, or a double?

by Anonymousreply 5305/10/2012

Who pays her to stay in the marriage? Does the cult pay her to pretend to be a devoted wife? Does J.T. pay her to pretend that they're a loving couple? She must be getting a big paycheck with plenty of servants.

by Anonymousreply 5405/10/2012

No double, R53. It's all her. Roy Scheider also showed his buns in that scene. He still had a great body at the time, and he was in his 50s.

I think John is stuck in that damn cult.

From new Kelly Preston US Magazine article:

"I Got Sober to Become a Better Mother"

[italic]For Kelly Preston and John Travolta, "our kids are the center of our universe," the Old Dogs actress said on Lifetime's The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet Thursday.

The mother-of-three, 49, explained that giving birth to son Benjamin Hunter Kaleo in November 2010 gave her a new perspective on motherhood. "It's different in that I'm so much wiser," she revealed. "I know myself so much more now." (She and Travolta, 58, are also parents to daughter Ella, 12. Their son Jett died from a seizure in January 2009.)

Preston added: "I'm so different, too. Now I don't drink anymore. I don't smoke anymore. I don't do drugs anymore. All of those come with an 'anymore.' I used to do everything and a lot of everything."

For Preston, the decision to get sober wasn't difficult. "With drinking, I just decided that I wasn't always at my best. There were times where I drank too much, for sure."

The actress -- married to Travolta since 1991 -- also disliked "not being myself with my kids, or just with my life 100 percent of the time. And when I didn't drink, I felt amazing, and I woke up feeling amazing every single day."

Said Preston: "For me, I find that our kids came in half the time to teach me about myself and to help me with others, and they have helped me so extraordinarily."[/italic]

Kelly was also on Amanda DeCadenet's show "The Conversation" last night, talking about Jett. This article and "The Conversation" were before this latest Travolta scandal.

The first time I heard this rumor, in the 1990s, it was that Charlie shot her in some kind of drunken/drugged up rage, that he wanted to kill her.

Didn't hear this "accident" story until about ten years ago.
