Los Angeles: Actress Kirstie Alley says she once almost ran off and married John Travolta and claims she still loves him.
The actress, 67, revealed the depth of her friendship with Travolta, 64, as she regaled her fellow “Celebrity Big Brother” UK housemates with stories of her past romances, reports people.com.
“I think I kissed Travolta,” Alley said.
“I almost ran off and married John. I did love him, I still love him. If I hadn’t been married I would’ve gone and married him and I would’ve been in an airplane because he has his own plane,” she added.
The two are both Scientologists and starred together in the 1989 film “Look Who’s Talking” and the sequels “Look Who’s Talking Too” and “Look Who’s Talking Now”.
Alley even spoke about her former co-star Patrick Swayze, who she also developed romantic feelings for while filming the 1985 mini-series “North and South”.
“I would’ve loved to have an affair with Patrick Swayze but we were both married so I wouldn’t have gone off (with him),” she said.
“I kissed him and I wish I could’ve had an affair but I’m a strong believer in fidelity and he was married. When you get on the road and you do a movie, it’s very easy to fall in love with your leading man. Very, very easy,” she added.
Despite Travolta allegedly feeling the same way, they didn’t act on it as Alley was married to Parker Stevenson at the time.
Alley divorced Stevenson in 1997. While she was a single woman, Travolta was by then already married to actress Kelly Preston, who Alley said would “bust” her.
