The actors have co-starred alongside each other on two films and maintained a long-term close friendship.While they also share the fact they follow Scientology in common, Kirstie saw that the pair were not right to marry, despite her claims of absolute affection for the actor.Since Travolta has not been involved in any public scandal, such as womanizing and experimenting with illicit substances, this was what the media had to work with.Meanwhile, Alley has publicly expressed that John Travolta is “the greatest love of my life”.
Expressing “it took everything that I had inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John,” you wonder why the pair didn’t end up doing so.
Now, you may think the actress chose to keep the last name of her first husband, as she is both professionally and personally known as Kirstie Alley. The pair who went to high school together, were, in fact, distant cousins and her husband shared the same family name as her father…was also called Robert.
In Kirstie Alley’s tell-all book, she has also revealed the downfall of her first marriage.
Alley is amongst the famous names who follow the religion of Scientology.
Following the likes of Tom Cruise and John Travolta, Alley and her family are strong believers in Scientology, having followed the religion for over 30 years now.
