Preston Calls 'Scientology' the Secret to Her Happy Marriage
December 3, 2005

"Extra" sat down with Kelly Preston, who is half of one of Hollywood's happiest couples. The gorgeous star opened up about everything from husband John Travolta to Tom and Katie's baby to the secret to her and John's 14-year marriage.

Preston told us that the key to her happy marriage is her and John's shared belief in Scientology. "It has definitely kept us together and kept us sane," she insisted. "It really gives you tools for everyday living. It's very much like treat others like you want to be treated yourself."

There's no doubt that Preston practices what she preaches. We caught up with her at a military base in Virginia, where she served up country crock side dishes to our troops. "I'm helping serve up that and just meeting with people and spreading holiday cheer," she said.

Preston also told us it's going to be a happy holiday season for her friends, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who are awaiting the birth of their first baby together. "They are both so over the moon and so excited and happy," Preston said. "You can see they are just glowing."

Also glowing is another close friend of the Travoltas: a very slim Kirstie Alley. "She looks gorgeous," Kelly said. "Her outlook has changed in that she feels a lot better about herself. She's wearing some tiny white clothes and looking mighty good."

Meanwhile, the Travolta clan is looking forward to spending their holiday far from Hollywood. Preston told us, "Right after this, I'm hopping on a plane to Maine. We always spend Christmas at our house in Maine, and I'm hoping for snow."
