Kelly Preston has had a tough year, but she says Miley Cyrus, her costar in the upcoming film The Last Song, helped her cope. Kelly and her husband John Travolta lost their 16-year-old son Jett in early 2009.
Six months after Jett’s death, Kelly went back to work for her younger costar.
“Miley asked me herself to play her mom,” Kelly told People. “I was really moved. It was the perfect movie to sort of get my feet wet.”
Kelly also had kind words for the film’s director and producer, Julie Anne Robinson and Adam Shankman.
“They were wonderful with my schedule,” she said, adding that her 9-year-old daughter Ella Bleu was also on set with her the whole time. As for Miley? Kelly can do nothing but gush about the young star.
“I love her so much,” Kelly said. “She’s such a good girl.”
The Last Song opens in theaters March 31. (People)
