Olivia Newton-John says her great "rapport" with John Travolta has lasted over 30 years


Olivia Newton-John
The actress and actor have teamed up to record a Christmas album - the first time they have worked together since starring in 1983 film 'Two of a Kind' and 34 years since they appeared in 'Grease' - and she insists their bond is really strong even though they don't see much of each other.

Speaking to British TV show 'Daybreak', she said: "We don't see each other often because we both have our own lives and things, but it's like picking up where we left off, so we've stayed in touch over the years.
"We always have a great rapport with each other and it's always very comfortable. We got together to go over the songs and it was like nothing had ever changed."

'This Christmas' features a host of festive classics such as 'White Christmas', 'Deck the Halls' and 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' and Olivia says John really helped her get to grip with the tracks in the recording studio.

She added: "He sounds great on those songs and loves them and knows them backwards and I felt very comfortable with it."

The two stars are donating all artist proceeds from the album equally to their respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation for children's disabilities and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre.
