John Travolta paid tribute to the 'five most important women" in his life in his latest speech at an event.

He lost girlfriend at the time, Hyland, to breast cancer in 1977 when she was 41 and he was 23.

At the age of 22, while filming 'The Boy in the Plastic Bubble', Travolta formed a romantic relationship with his on-screen mother Diana Hyland who was 18 years older than him. The couple dated for a year before Hyland sadly passed away of breast cancer aged 41.
