Olivia Newton-John: ‘I didn’t like Grease sequel’

Singer/actress Olivia Newton-John was not a fan of Grease 2.
The 68-year-old starred alongside John Travolta in classic movie Grease and the pair was asked to return for the sequel. However, the movie never came to fruition and Michelle Pfeiffer went on to appear in Grease 2, alongside a young Maxwell Caulfield. The film received terrible reviews and Olivia did not think it was very good either.
“I kind of remember they did ask us,” she told Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday (04Oct16). “I think they approached John (Travolta) and I to do it and then it didn’t happen and I didn’t think it was going to happen. They made it with other people, so that’s my memory of it.”
While the actress was not fond of the Grease sequel, she did enjoy 2016 TV event Grease: Live, in which Julianne Hough took on the role played by Newton-John in the film.
“I liked it,” she said. “It was fun.”
