Kelly Preston On John Travolta's Oscar Jeans: 'I Told Him He Should Do It'

John Travolta turned heads for wearing jeans with his tuxedo to the Oscars — but wife Kelly Preston said it wasn’t a wardrobe mix-up.

“I told him that he should do it,” she told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman at the junket for her latest film, “The Last Song,” on Saturday. “I thought it was really cool.”

John previously told People that the fit wasn’t quite right with his tux pants before his wife suggested the jeans, but Kelly said he looked great in the original outfit.

“He looked hot in the tux!” Kelly said. “It was an Armani tux. It always fits so well but I just thought [jeans] would be cool.

“He’s John Travolta,” she added. “He can wear jeans with his tux.”

Plus, she added, her husband may have started a trend.

“All the men [backstage] were like, ‘Aw, man, I want to do that,’” Kelly said. “So who knows?”
