Kelly Preston Birth date/place, Movie and Biography

Kelly Preston

Kelly Kamalelehua Palzis (born October 13, 1962 in Honolulu, Hawaii) is an American actress.

Preston had a modeling career when she was a teenager. At 16, she was discovered by a fashion photographer who helped her get acting work in commercials and other small parts, which eventually developed into a successful movie career.

Preston has been married to John Travolta since 1991. Preston put her career on hold after the wedding, opting to be a wife and mother when Travolta’s career took off again in the 1990s. The couple have two children, a son and a daughter; she also has a son by her first marriage to actor Kevin Gage. Kelly does not use the surname “Travolta” professionally.

Both Preston and Travolta are Scientologists, and Preston appeared in the film Battlefield Earth (produced by John Travolta, based on the novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard). Her role is sometimes incorrectly described as “starring” even though she only appears in one scene. She plays a Psychlo female encountered in a bar (possibly a prostitute) whose primary talent is implied to be fellatio.

Recently, she has taken up the issue of overmedication and children. In keeping with Scientology precepts, Preston believes that schools are forcing or pressuring students and their families to medicate them for ADD unnecessarily. She has testified before the Florida state legislature encouraging the passage of a bill to ban such practice. While there is already a federal law to that effect, only schools receiving federal funding are subject to its terms.

She also devotes much of her time as a board member of the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition (CHEC), a non-profit organization dedicated to educating parents about environmental toxins and potential health hazards for children with illnesses. She joined after their son Jett was diagnosed with Kawasaki syndrome, an illness that mostly affects children and results in severe allergies and asthma attacks.

Trivia

Preston’s former boyfriends include George Clooney and Charlie Sheen. After living with Sheen for one year (and receiving a very large diamond ring from him), Preston ended the relationship in 1990 shortly after an incident in which Sheen accidentally shot her in the arm.

John Travolta married Kelly Preston twice. Their first wedding (September 5, 1991) was performed by a French Scientologist minister, but it was later declared illegal. They married again within the month.

In 2004, Kelly Preston was featured in the chart-topping Maroon 5 music video, “She Will Be Loved”. The video features a dangerous love triangle and some steamy romantic scenes between Preston and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
