Actor and comedian Kevin Hart is sending some emotional support to fellow actor John Travolta, who recently lost his wife Kelly Preston after a two-year battle with breast cancer. The two are co-staring in upcoming action-comedy film “Die Hart,” and clearly Hart is trying to uplift his co-star’s spirits.
While promoting him and Travolta’s upcoming Quibi series “Die Hart,” Hart, 41, took a moment to send condolences to co-star Travolta, 66, as he mourns of the passing of his wife Kelly Preston, who passed away at the age of 57 from breast cancer.Read More
“I’ve known John for a while, this is my first time working with him. We’re extremely lucky to have John Travolta be a part of this project. The man is a legend and anything he touches is gold. So for us to be able to say that we worked with him in general in our career is a massive moment,” Hart told Yahoo Entertainment. “Our hearts go out to him and his family. At this time I think it’s about him and his space and the time with his loved ones.”
Hart lost his mother, Nancy, to ovarian cancer in 2007. He’s spoken about the loss a handful of times, sharing that losing a loved one is an extremely difficult experience, so he clearly knows that a little support can go a long way in helping those going through this.
The Importance Of Seeking Support After Losing A Loved To Cancer
For families who have lost a loved one to cancer, it’s understandable that they may experience feelings such as anger, sadness, confusion, and more. It’s important to work through these emotions in order to cope with tragedy and move on. That’s where support systems and relying on other loved ones come in.
Actress and writer Jill Kargman not only battled melanoma, but underwent a double mastectomy when she found out she was at risk of breast cancer. Dealing with two separate bouts of cancer was a tough time in her life, but she tells SurvivorNet that her inner-circle of friends (which includes the likes of Drew Barrymore) made the whole experience bearable.
“It just made me feel so taken care of,” Kargman says. “I had a lot of support from my family and friends. My support group was invaluable. If you’re going to be house bound, it’s great to be with your inner circle.”
