Oh, those summer nights! Forty years after the premiere of arguably one of the best movies ever, Grease, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John had a little reunion — and it’s so good to see Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson back together after all this time!
The two reunited at a 40th anniversary event for the movie held at The Academy in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, Aug. 15. For the special outing, Olivia, 69, donned a pink blazer, cream pants, and a matching silk blouse. John, 64, looked dapper in his dressy jeans, black blazer, and a black sweater with a white collared shirt underneath it.
The best part? The dynamic duo could not look happier to be there! They were arm in arm smiling away, and in one of the snaps, John even gave Olivia a kiss on the cheek! Our personal favorite, however, was the one of the two dancing just like they did in Grease. Their former co-stars, Didi Conn and Barry Pearl, were there for some of the photoshoot as well.
Olivia and John also previously reunited at the G’Day USA event in LA on Jan. 27, and fans loved the photos of the two smiling side-by-side onstage. At the star-studded event, John, sported a head full of gray hair and a gray beard (talk about a silver fox!) while Olivia looked absolutely beautiful despite announcing months before that she’s battling breast cancer again.

In May 2017, she revealed her diagnosis for the second time, but in an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly this past November, Olivia revealed she’s doing much better today! “I am no longer in pain and happy to say I am working again,” she shared. “When I get to sing the songs I love, it’s like a gift. Being on the road with my band has been healing for me.”
Olivia has also shared in the past how supportive her former co-star John has been through all of this. “He’s been wonderful. He calls and checks up on me,” she once said. “He came to one of my shows — right before this happened, actually, right before my diagnosis. I saw him and I was hobbling around the dinner table because I was having trouble sitting down. And he was concerned.”
John respects Olivia just as much. “She’s always been an incredible human being and an inspiration to millions,” he has said. “I know her so well. If we all put our intentions for her to get through this, she will feel it and it will support her. We love her and she loves us.” Here’s hoping they make another movie together someday — preferably Grease!
