John Travolta says he and his family are still ''working hard on healing'' following the death of his 16-year-old son Jett last year
John Travolta will grieve for his late son for the rest of his life.
The 56-year-old actor admits the pain of losing his 16-year-old son Jett - who passed away in January 2009 following a seizure while on holiday in the Bahamas - is still raw but he and his family are dealing with it the best they can.
Speaking at the Governors Ball which took place at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel after the Oscars ceremony on Sunday night (07.03.10), he said: "We are working hard on healing, still. It's going to be a lifelong project. Everybody has been so enormously supportive and I really appreciate it."
Travolta's 'Wild Hogs' co-star Tim also revealed his friend is still coming to terms with his loss.
Allen - who attended the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Viewing Party - said: "He is doing really well, I mean, healing as best he can. He is pushing through a very tough situation."
Earlier this year, Travolta admitted he and wife Kelly Preston and their nine-year-old daughter Ella had received a great deal of support from the Church of Scientology in the wake of Jett's untimely passing.
The actor - who is a devout follower of the controversial religion - said: "We work hard every day with our church on healing. And Kelly and I and Ella have all been working very hard and they've been helping us."
