"I just want to take one moment to thank each and every one of you throughout this country, through out the world for all your support and all your love for our family," Travolta told Ellen. "Thank you very much."

And when talking about what it was like to work with Ella, 9, who makes her acting debut in his new film, he needed a tissue. You are so proud of her, aren't you?" Ellen asked. "I'm holding back the tears...," Travolta responded, accepting a Kleenex from the host.

John and Ella's movie, Old Dogs, premieres in theaters November 25th.
