Born in 1962 in Honolulu, Hawaii, Kelly Preston entered the Hollywood realm when she was 16 by acting in commercials, which led to other small parts.
Since, she has starred in numerous films, like 2000's Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000, and has appeared on the small screen with a recurring role on Medium.
Preston - who is a spokesperson for Neutrogena - is married to actor John Travolta. The practicing scientologists have three children: sons Jett and Benjamin, and a daughter, Ella Blue. Tragically, in January 2009, her oldest son Jett died as a result of a seizure disorder during a family vacation in the Bahamas.
