During an interview with Fox News Digital, the actress shared, "I think I knew he was a good actor. He was 12, I came home and my mom said, ‘We’re going down to this little tiny theater.’ We went down, and I thought, ‘Boy, this kid is good.’ And then I was gone. He was always working.”

After recalling John’s initial work in sitcoms and musicals, she stated, “But when ‘Saturday Night Fever’ came out, and you saw him on the big screen, I said, ‘Oh my, when did that happen?’ We never knew. We never saw that coming. It was a surprise."

The actress elaborated that her brother's fame didn’t have a promising future but that was before Saturday Night Fever was released

Referencing that she added, “With ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ that’s when he got nominated for his first Academy Award. And he was breathtaking. It was this little brother of mine. And he was a major, major star."
