“(Ben) once said to me, ‘Because mommy died, I’m afraid you’re going to,’” Travolta told Kevin Hart on his talk show. “Heart to Heart” (streaming on Peacock). “I said, ‘Well, it’s something completely different.’ And I went through the differences about my longevity and her limited life.”

But then Travolta said he was right about his son.

“I said, ‘Ben, you’ve always loved the truth and I’m going to tell you the truth about life. Nobody knows when they’re going or when they’re going to stay.’

Travolta and Preston mourned the death of their eldest son Jett who died on January 2, 2009 at the age of 16 after an attack while the family was on vacation in the Bahamas.

“Your brother (Jett) left at age 16. Too young. Your mother left at age 57. That was too young. But who’s to say? I could die tomorrow. You could. Anyone can do it ,” he added. “So let’s look at it like it’s part of life. You don’t know exactly. You’re just doing your best to live as long as you can.’

Travolta and Preston married in 1991 and had three children, including daughter Ella, now 21.

During the interview with Hart, Travolta referred to Tom Hanks’ star-making role in the 1984 hit comedy “Splash,” who said the part was “written for me.”

Travolta said he had no problem handing over the role of the blockbuster. If he hadn’t passed “Splash,” “we wouldn’t have had Tom Hanks,” Travolta said. “So let’s take Tom Hanks.”

Travolta joked that he can “take responsibility” for the careers of several stars who took on roles he was incapable of, including Hanks and Richard Gere.

The “Saturday Night Fever” star explained that in Hollywood in the late 1970s and early 1980s, he was one of the main protagonists for almost every major role.

“It was just Richard Gere, myself and Treat Williams for most of the parts and Tom (Hanks) came in a few years later,” Travolta said. “Those roles would become interchangeable. So in some ways, in Vegas, what’s a one in four chance.”
