When Grease star Olivia Newton-John put her character’s iconic leather jacket up for auction, she did so with the hopes of raising money for a charity close to her heart. What she didn’t expect, however, was that the anonymous billionaire buyer had an ulterior motive. And when he revealed the true reason for his extravagant purchase, the actress was blown away.
Now, Olivia Newton-John first found fame as a singer in the early 1970s, years before becoming a household name in Grease. While she was born in the United Kingdom, her family uprooted when she was just five years old. So subsequently she grew up in Australia, before returning to her homeland to kick start her singing career.
