MARIA SHRIVER, LONI LOVE, RUSSELL CROWE & MORE CELEBS PAY TRIBUTE TO KELLY PRESTON: ‘SUCH A BRIGHT LOVING SOUL’
Monday, Jul 13, 2020

Actress, mother and wife, Kelly Preston, passed away at 57 after a two-year battle with breast cancer. Her husband John Travolta shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”

Many celebrities, who were shocked to hear the devastating news, are paying tribute to the fallen actress. Russell Crowe reflected on the first time he met Kelly during a 1995 audition, describing her as a “sparkly eyed gem.”

 

Kelly Preston.
Can’t remember where, but, met first in late ‘92 I think.
Such a lovely person. In 1995 we auditioned together for Breaking Up, Salma Hayek got that gig.
I havent seen her much, but when I did, she was always the same sparkly eyed gem.
Love to her family.
R.I.P

Maria Shriver was “shocked” by the loss of “such a bright loving soul.” She sent her “love and strength” to the Travolta family.

Kelly’s Space Camp co-star, Lea Thompson, took to Instagram to share her condolences to the actress who was “always full of love and light and Hawaiian breeziness.”

 

Spencer Breslin, who co-starred along with Kelly in 2003’s The Cat In The Hat, referred to his “on-screen mom” as “a lovely woman.”

 

Other celebrities such as Loni Love, Holly Robinson-Peete and more shared their fond memories of Kelly.

 

In addition to John Travolta, Kelly is survived by their two kids, 20-year-old daughter Ella and Benjamin, 9. Their 16-year-old son Jett passed away in 2009 at 16-years-old. We’re sending our thoughts and prayers to the family, friends and fans of Kelly Preston during this devastating time.
