"Kelly Preston. Can't remember where, but, met first in late '92 I think. Such a lovely person. In 1995 we auditioned together for Breaking Up, Salma Hayek got that gig. I haven't seen her much, but when I did, she was always the same sparkly-eyed gem. Love to her family. R.I.P," the Oscar-winning actor tweeted.

Kelly Preston was best known for her roles in 'Jerry Maguire' 'SpaceCamp,' 'Jack Frost,' 'View From The Top', and 'For Love of the Game.'

She had also worked with her husband Travolta in 'Battlefield Earth' and she was last seen in 2018 released 'Gotti.'
