John Travolta went on Good Morning America to talk about his new film Killing Season, but first he shared memories of his late friend James Gandolfini.
When Travolta’s son Jett died in 2009, Gandolfini stepped up to make sure the Travolta family had plenty of support.
“James went out of his way to come to Florida and he would not leave Florida until I was okay, or he felt that I would be fine,” Travolta remembers. “After a week I said, ‘Jim you can really, you know, we’ll be fine. I’ve got a lot of support here. But the idea that in our profession someone would go out of their way and not want to leave you until he felt you were okay, that’s the kind of soul that James Gandolfini was. He was a people person first and then everything else.”
Travolta also discussed how his career helped influence Gandolfini to go into acting.
