Olivia Newton-John made an impression

Olivia Newton John’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi was moved to tears by Australia’s Today tribute to her late mother. After watching the tribute, Lattanzi reached out to reporter Richard Wilkin, who was a close friend of her mother, via TMZ. “I just want you to know that she is now free and no longer in pain,” Lattanzi said in an emotional voicemail later played by Today.

“She makes the sunshine,” Lattanzi remarked, describing an idyllic day in California that her mother would have loved. “The dogs run around and bark, and the horses gallop.” Newton-John loved animals. She told Interview in 2011 that if she hadn’t been an actress, she would have loved to be a vet.

I ride them all at the same time!”
