Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta still keep their bond close and strong, especially in such a difficult time for the Australian actress as she's battling stage 4 breast cancer.

The 65-year-old actor praised his former co-star and close friend for being persistent during the hardship. He exclusively told ET:

She looks incredible. She doesn't look any different than [she did] years ago, and I'm very proud of her.

Although the Xanadu star is fighting her third cancer diagnosis and is feeling alright, her family is rather worried and afraid of the future. Olivia's daughter Chloe Lattanzi confessed she found it hard to deal with mom's cancer.

While speaking on 60 Minutes, the 33-year-old said she "would wake up in night sweats, panic attacks and kind of pushed it." After the 1992 diagnosis, Chloe said she felt like her mother's "protector" and had a strong desire to take care of her.
