John Travolta Had ‘No Idea’ Wife Kelly Preston Had Sex Scene With Tom Cruise in ‘Jerry Maguire’

The actor didn't know about the steamy scene until he saw the movie in theaters with his wife.

Well, this is awkward... 

John Travolta got a rude surprise the first time he saw Jerry Maguire in theaters. The classic 1996 film starred Tom Cruise, Renee Zellweger, and Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston. 

Preston plays Cruise's girlfriend, Avery, in the film, who is very... ahem... passionate in the bedroom. 

One thing Travolta wasn't expecting when he went to see the film was his wife's sex scene being so graphic. During a Wednesday appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden, Travolta talked with fellow guests Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson about seeing his significant other do a sex scene with someone else.

"You don't even know what awkward is, nor do you, until you sit in the screening of Jerry Maguire and you don't know that scene is coming up and your wife is with Tom Cruise in the middle of something that is astonishing," Travolta confessed. "That's awkward. I had no idea."

Corden pointed out that the steamy scene involves Preston loudly shouting, "Never ever stop f**king me," to Cruise's character, Jerry Maguire. 

"That was rough," Travolta said, shaking his head before offering Sam a hug and a kiss for directing her own husband in a sex scene on Valentine's Day for the movie A Million Little Pieces

Travolta and Preston celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary this past September. The pair met on the set of the 1989 movie, The Experts

The couple shares daughter Ella, 19, and son Benjamin, 8, and their son, Jett, passed away in 2009 from a seizure. 

“To my dearest Johnny, the most wonderful man I know,” Preston wrote on Instagram for their anniversary. “You have given me hope when I have felt lost, loved me patiently and unconditionally… made me laugh harder than any other human being possible… shared the most beautiful highs and at time lows.”
