John Travolta opened up about a difficult conversation he had with his 10-year-old son, Ben, about death. On the latest episode of ‘Hart to Heart,’ the iconic actor revealed to host Kevin Hart that their discussion came after the passing of his wife Kelly Preston in 2020 following a two-year battle with cancer. She was 57. ‘[Ben] said to me once, 'Because mom passed away, I'm afraid you're going to,' Travolta recalled on the talk show. ‘I said, 'Well, it's a very different thing.' And I went through the differences about my longevity and her limited life.’
