John Travolta Talks 16-Year-Old Daughter Ella Dating: 'I Don't Interfere With That'

John Travolta's lookalike daughter, Ella Travolta, joined her father on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and chatted about how her parents handle her dating life.

The 62-year-old actor admitted that he has a hands-off approach to the 16-year-old's personal relationships. "I don't interfere with that," he said. "I'm saving her because she has two guys that she hangs out with, [and] I don't ask anything about what they say or do with each other."

Ella did confirm that she's not seeing anyone at the moment. "Good, let's keep it that way," her dad joked. "I never want my children to leave the house, ever."
