Jett, 16, died last weekend at his family's holiday home in the Bahamas. "John just adored him, both of his children," Cruise said. "It's something that I don't have the words for," the hunk added.
He described Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston, as "doting parents, just wonderful people".
Melbourne (ANI): Tom Cruise struggled to maintain his composure in a TV interview as he talked about John Travolta's son Jett's tragic death. News.com.au reports that while on The View, the Valkyrie star was forthright as he addressed suggestions that the actors' Scientology beliefs could have impacted on the care given to Jett, who was known to suffer seizures.
