It’s been nearly 40 years since John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John danced their way through high school in “Grease”. Over the weekend, the pair had a mini-reunion as G’Day USA honoured the 1978 high school musical.
The annual black tie gala celebrated the 40th anniversary of “Grease”, honouring Aussie songwriter John Farrar who wrote the film’s “You’re the One That I Want” duet with Newton-John and Travolta.
Newton-John’s appearance comes eight months after the actress and singer revealed her second cancer diagnosis. She was first diagnosed in 1992 and was given the all-clear after undergoing chemotherapy and a mastectomy.
The on-screen couple have remained friends since “Grease” was released in 1978 and after her most-recent cancer diagnosis, Travolta told ET Canada: “I speak to her at least once a week… and she’s doing really well. I’m super impressed with her ability to recover… she’s a survivor and she’ll inspire others to do so. We care and love each other very much.”
