Kirstie Alley 'fell hard for Travolta'

In a revealing new interview with US newswoman Barbara Walters, the former Cheers actress admits her former co-star and friend John Travolta was "the greatest love of my life".

The 61-year-old says: "Believe me, it took everything that I had, inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John. And be with John for the rest of my life."

Alley and Travolta worked together on the Look Who's Talking sequels, but they never became romantic and the actor later wed Kelly Preston, who is one of Alley's friends.

Alley has also confessed to a major crush on the late Patrick Swayze, but insists she didn't do anything about it because: "I knew how much he loved his wife."
