At the Oscars ceremony, John Travolta introduced the in-memoriam segment and became emotional as he remembered his beloved friends who had passed away. Travolta lost his Grease co-star Olivia Newton-John and his Look Who’s Talking co-star Kirstie Alley within months of each other. Lenny Kravitz then took the stage to perform his song Calling All Angels.
Travolta has a new movie coming out this year, Paradise City, in which he co-stars with Bruce Willis. In the movie, Willis plays a bounty hunter while Travolta portrays a drug lord. This will be one of Willis’s last movies, as he revealed that he has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a form of dementia that affects communication and behavior.
Willis and his family have been raising awareness about FTD, a disease that is little-known and has no cure. They hope that media attention can help shed light on the disease and bring more research and awareness. The family described FTD as a cruel disease that can strike anyone, and they are hoping for a breakthrough in treatment in the years to come. They also noted that Bruce always believed in using his voice to help others and raise awareness about important issues.
