Olivia Newton John doesn’t feel great affection towards the sequel to her 1978 musical classic, Grease. The singer and actress appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, where host Andy Cohen asked what she thought of the 1982 flick, Grease 2, which starred Michelle Pfeiffer.
“Not a lot,” she quipped. “I kind of remember they did ask [John Travolta and I]. They approached John and I to do it and then it didn’t happen. I didn’t think it was gonna happen, and then they made it with other people.”
While widely panned, the sequel did gain a cult following. But this past year’s production of Grease Live is another matter.
The Fox show, starring Julianne Hough as Sandy and Aaron Tveit as Danny, earned praise from fans and recently scored an Emmy, beating out Beyonce’s Lemonade.
Newton-John also gave it her stamp of approval, saying “I liked it. It was fun.”
