Actor John Travolta says he thought of retiring after his son died.

The Grease! actor and wife Kelly Preston were left devastated when son Jett passed away in 2009. He admits it was only the support from his fans, loved ones and faith in Scientology that prevented him from turning his back on his career.

"I lost my son a few years ago and I had been having quite a time of that," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Travolta as saying.

"And after three years of getting a lot of support from the church and a lot of support from people - fans and family - I decided that it was OK to go back to work. Because I even thought of retiring at one point, because it just felt like too much," he added.
