In an interview in 2017, the actress responded to a difficult question with candor and gratitude that is a lesson to us all.
Many were saddened to hear of the passing of Olivia Newton-John yesterday at the age of 73. While she was famous for her role as Sandy in the 1978 movie, Grease, during her battle with cancer over three decades, the singer and actress was also able to pass on a very valuable lesson to us all.
Details of an interview made nearly five years ago have emerged that show how the actress was coping with her most recent cancer diagnosis.
Karl Stefanovic spoke with the star during a 60 Minutes interview. In their conversation that was dubbed the “interview of the year” by the Daily Mail, Newton-John addressed her latest bout of cancer, having already beaten it in 1992 and again in 2013. Unfortunately, for Newton-John, the third diagnosis showed that she had Stage IV breast cancer which had spread to her bones, leaving her in great pain.
