Kelly`s father drowned when she was only three years old, and her mother Linda, an administrator, later married Peter Palzis, who raised her as his own. During her childhood, Kelly split her time living in Australia and Iraq, and while in Australia she attended the Pembroke School in Adelaide, after which she enrolled at the University of Southern California, where she studied Drama and Theater.

Kelly`s career began when she was only 16 years old, when she was approached by a photographer, who recommended her for several commercials, and even set her for the audition for the role of Emmeline in the popular film “Blue Lagoon” (1980), however, she was a second choice, behind Brooke Shields. So her first role was as Wendy in the TV series “Hawaii Five-O” (1980), and three years later, she was featured as Mary Lee in the TV series “For Love And Honor” (1983-1984).

Her first big role was as Marilyn McCauley in the film “Mischief” (1985), which was followed by roles in films “Secret Admirer” (1985), as Deborah Anne Fimple alongside C. Thomas Howell and Lori Loughlin, “Space Camp” (1986) as Tish Ambrosei, and “Twins” (1988) as Marnie Mason with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, all of which increased her net worth by large margins.

In the 1990s, Kelly emerged as a young and talented actress, securing roles in several successful films such as “From Dusk Till Down” (1996) with Antonio Banderas and Quentin Tarantino, “Jerry Maguire” with Tom Cruise, and “Addicted To Love” (1997) alongside Matthew Broderick and Meg Ryan. Furthermore, she appeared in films such as “Holy Man” (1998), “For Love Of The Game” (1999), and “Curdled” (1996). All added to her net worth.

The 2000s brought some ups and downs, for instance when she was featured in the film “Battlefield Earth” (2000) with her future husband John Travolta, and won the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Supporting Actress. However, she also portrayed Helen Hume in the film “Death Sentence” (2007), directed by James Wan, which also features Kevin Bacon and John Goodman. Moreover, Kelly`s net worth increased with roles in films such as “Old Dogs” (2009), “Return To Sender” (2004), “Casino Jack” (2010), “The Last Song” (2010), and “Broken Bridges” (2004), among others.

Most recently, Kelly has been featured in the TV series “CSI: Cyber” (2016), as Greer Latimore, which has also added to her net worth. Kelly has now appeared in close to 50 films, and over 20 TV productions, indicating her worth to directors as well as consistently adding to net worth.

Speaking about her personal life, Kelly Preston was married to Kevin Gage from 1985 to 1987, and she has been married to actor John Travolta since September of 1991. The couple had three children; his son died in 2009 at the age of 17. She was also in a relationship with George Clooney, and was briefly engaged to Charlie Sheen in 1990.

1Deep sultry voice
2Natural brunette hair
3Curvaceous, buxom figure
1I prioritize, I'm a great listmaker and, to try to keep everything organized, I have people who help me out with different things. And just making my kids and my husband come first, keeping us together, is my first priority. And then I fit films into my life.
2But we ride bikes, we go swimming, you do art projects, you do things as a family. We go to Denny's, my big places to shop are Wal-Mart and Target. Seriously, that's where half of my stuff comes from now. I don't get to go to the super-fancy stores unless I'm out here now. You sort of stay pretty real that way.
3(quoted in Playboy magazine in May 2003) I got caught playing doctor in my grandma's garage, but, you know, it was very minor, just like sticking things in the heinie.
4I've wanted to have babies since I was 11. I always babysat. I was making thousands and thousands of dollars doing commercials and still babysitting for $2.50 an hour. Children are our future -- literally. It's such a cliche, but it's so true.
5There's the jiggle factor in Hollywood. Once I was at an audition and they told me, "You must show your breasts!" and I was like, get outta town. I just laughed and slammed the door on my way out.
6People have generally been very respectful and we've not been tabloid fodder.
7When I married John, I put my career on hold to be a wife and to have a child. Before that I didn't have a fabulous career, but I was working. When I decided to resume acting, I had become Mrs. Travolta in many people's eyes so I had to prove myself all over again.
