Demi Moore remembers Kelly Preston with throwback photo

"The world has lost one of the most beautiful, kind, generous, tender-loving souls that has graced this earth," Moore wrote on Instagram. "Rest easy @therealkellypreston, we will miss you," she added along with a heartbroken emoji.

Kelly Preston & John Travolta, Demi Moore & Bruce Willis: '90s icons
The happy fivesome may have come together for the photo sometime near the late '80s or early '90s, when Willis and Travolta co-starred in three films together. Both appeared in the 1989 comedy Look Who's Talking and its 1990 sequel, as well as Quentin Tarantino's iconic 1994 crime film, Pulp Fiction. At the time, Travolta and Preston as well as Willis and Moore were among Hollywood's best-known power couples. But Willis and Moore later divorced in 2000, while Travolta and Preston remained married until her 2020 passing.
Moore is among many stars and family members to express their sadness at learning of Preston's death at the age of 57. In his heartbreaking announcement of the news, John Travolta wrote: "Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal."
Likewise, the couple's daughter, Ella, wrote a tribute that highlighted her mother's "courageous, strong, beautiful and loving" nature. Rest in peace, Kelly.
