Travolta Stands by Scientology

Speaking in his first interview after his son Jett's death in January, John Travolta says that his family, including his wife, actress Kelly Preston, and his daughter, Ella Bleu, has been "working very hard every day... to heal." Despite recent rumors that the actor might be leaving his longtime faith, the Church of Scientology, daily religious counseling sessions have helped the family through the crisis. "We have our own way of doing it, and it has been helping," says Travolta. The family has come out of seclusion in part to help promote Travolta's new film, Old Dogs, and introduce his daughter, who co-stars in the movie, "to the world and give her a beautiful future in film."
