John Travolta compares family to the Fondas, talks about acting heritage
John Travolta says in the latest issue of Parade Magazine — on newsstands this Sunday — that he envisions a long and successful career for daughter Ella Bleu, 7, who will make her acting debut alongside her father in the upcoming film Old Dogs. John even drew comparisons between he and Ella and yet another well-known father-daughter acting duo.
Not bad to think I’m like Henry Fonda and (Ella’s) Jane Fonda. Let it be heritage, the family business.
But the comparisons don’t end there. In the same interview, conducted at 2 a.m., John likens his family — including wife Kelly Preston and son Jett, 15 — to the Addams Family because of the hours they choose to keep. According to John, Kelly and the kids routinely stay up with him until the wee hours of the morning, going to bed when the sun comes up, in an effort to escape the intrusive lens of the paparazzi.
We’re … living a sort of odd, nocturnal life. My kids probably stay up too late. My wife goes to bed around 3 a.m., and I follow around 7 a.m., but it works.
