Kelly Preston, 1962-2020

Actress Kelly Preston has passed away after a long battle with breast cancer. She was only 57.

I always thought Preston was a great actress, and she was absolutely gorgeous in the 1985 comedy “Mischief.”

Actress Kelly Preston, who starred in movies such as “Jerry Maguire” and “Twins,” died on Sunday, her husband, John Travolta, said.

Travolta confirmed Preston’s death on Instagram and said it followed a two-year battle with breast cancer.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer,” Travolta wrote on Instagram Sunday. “She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. ”

Preston was born on October 13, 1962, in Honolulu, Hawaii. She studied acting at the University of Southern California before starring in the romantic comedy film “Mischief,” her first major movie role. She went on to star in such hit films as 1988’s “Twins,” 1996’s “Jerry Maguire,” and 1999’s “For Love of the Game,” alongside Kevin Costner.

Everyone here knows me disdain for all things Hollywood, but everything I ever read about Preston was rather glowing. Honestly, no one should die at 57. F**k cancer.
