(Newser) – John Travolta filmed his first interview since son Jett’s death, talking to Ellen DeGeneres yesterday in a segment that airs today, E! reports. “I just want to take one moment to thank each and every one of you throughout this country, throughout the world, for all your support and all your love for our family,” he says. Daughter Ella Bleu came along to promote her first film, Old Dogs, which also stars a bursting-with-pride Travolta. "I'm holding back the tears," he said. "No, really you're not," Ellen deadpanned while handing him tissues.
