John Travolta Whisked Kelly Preston To France For 50th Birthday
Actress Kelly Preston had a birthday to remember last month - her husband John Travolta whisked her off to France and singer Barbra Streisand gave her an onstage shout-out at a recent concert.
Travolta surprised Preston and a couple of her pals with a trip to Paris last month to celebrate her 50th birthday and the Jerry Maguire star admits she had the time of her life.
She tells People.com, "Last month, Johnny (Travolta) flew all my girlfriends and their husbands and our family to Paris for four days for my birthday party and we just had the best time ever. Absolute perfection."
The actress officially marked the major milestone on October 13 by taking in a performance by Streisand in Brooklyn, New York, and the Way We Were hitmaker made the concert experience extra special for the birthday girl by congratulating Preston in the middle of her set.
She adds, "I can't even put into words the experience because she was so magnificent. She said happy birthday to me (from the stage). It was the best concert I've ever been to in my life, just magic. It was truly an amazing birthday."
Preston also received special gifts from her kids - one-year-old Benjamin made her a painting of "little dots and lines" and 12-year-old Ella gave her a photo album.
Meanwhile, her close friend Kirstie Alley sent her a basket of homemade healthy treats from her weight-loss program Organic Liaison: "She sent me a box of unbelievably delicious sweets - Rice Krispie treats, homemade jams, coconut macaroons, you name it I plowed right though it!"
