Eight and a half year old Ella Bleu, better known as John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s daughter, is making her acting debut in the film Old Dogs, which also features her mom.
After reading the script, John and Kelly sought the advice of friends Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith as to whether or not they should allow their daughter to enter the spotlight of Hollywood just yet. With the Smith’s support and inspiration, the proud parents are very excited about Ella’s entree into the industry, and they feel this film is the perfect debut.
John says, “I want to see her have a fruitful career and I really think it’s time to introduce her, sort of like Will Smith introduced his son. I think this is the right thing for Ella, and Kelly thought it was smart too.”
