John Travolta started his first talk show appearance since the death of his son JETT with a heartfelt thanks to his fans around the world.
The movie star has been a virtual recluse since the tragedy in January (09) and he has only recently come out of hiding to promote new movie Old Dogs, which is also his daughter Ella's big feature debut.
Appearing on Wednesday's (11Nov09) Ellen show in America, the actor insisted on addressing the studio audience and those watching the show at home, stating, "I just wanna take one moment to thank each and everyone of you throughout this country, throughout the world, for all your support and all your love for our family."
Travolta's son suffered a seizure and died during a family vacation in the Bahamas.
