Olivia Newton-John’s “Grease” co-star Didi Conn is opening up about her late friend’s final weeks.
The “Physical” singer died on Monday at the age of 73 following a battle with breast cancer.
Conn — who played Frenchy in the 1978 musical — told “Good Morning America” on Tuesday how she kept in contact with the Aussie entertainer in the weeks before her passing.
“She told me that she wasn’t walking anymore and that she had full-time care,” Conn, 71, said.
“But her husband, John, and her daughter, Chloe, were there all the time and she told me they were just so hopelessly devoted,” Conn added.
As for what Conn would remember the most about her castmate, she explained how she would always recount her singing the song “I Honestly Love You.”
“That’s how I’ll always remember her — this big heart who just cared so much for everybody. And we will honestly always love her, too,” she said.
Jane Seymour also recently got candid about Newton-John’s final moments during a chat with “Good Morning Britain” on Tuesday.
“She was a special person,” the “Somewhere in Time” star, 71, revealed. “She changed the world.” Seymour also explained how she thought her friend “was going to pass many years ago.”
Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and the disease returned in 2013. In 2017, the Australian entertainer said the cancer had spread to her lower back and her bones.
“About three years ago, I remember being with her and I just thought this was the last time I was going to see her. She was skeletal and frail and in a lot of pain, and I just thought I’m going to get that call next week,” Seymour said.
However, the former Bond girl said Newton-John persevered with her illness. “But she just kept coming back. She just kept bouncing back. She loved life, she loved her husband, she loved her daughter,” she added.
Newton-John was mom to 36-year-old daughter, Chloe, and was married to her husband John Easterling for 14 years.
Seymour then noted: “She hung in there a really really long time. She was in so much pain and those of us who knew her at the end, we didn’t want her to go, but it wasn’t a life for her anymore.”
Of the pair’s final meeting, Seymour recalled, “The last time I sat there, she didn’t know I was coming, she got the day wrong. She just kept saying looking at this hummingbird, look at the sky, look at nature.”
Newton-John’s other “Grease” costar John Travolta penned his own tribute to her on social media.
“My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better. Your impact was incredible. I love you so much,” the “Pulp Fiction” actor, 68, wrote. “We will see you down the road and we will all be together again. Yours from the moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John.”
