On screen chemistry helps endear actors to us. Today, there is so much crassness and crudeness on and off screen between the actors. There is a lot less respect and camaraderie now.
Merry Griffin’s 1981 interview below with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John really highlights this. These two “Grease” stars are true friends. You can feel the chemistry between them in this interview. It’s simply adorable how much they respect and admire each other.
That interview makes me like them even more! And these two are still friends decades later. You can really see it shine through in this performance below to celebrate the 35th anniversary of “Grease.”
This brings back so many great memories. They are a much better on screen couple than anyone today!
