John originally thought he would spend his big birthday quietly. Little did he know, wife Kelly Preston had cooked up a star-studded, mega-fiesta weekend in Las Cabos, Mexico to honor her husband! The 250-person "A list" included such stars as Barbra Streisand, Sylvester Stallone, Meg Ryan, Robin Williams, Tom Cruise, Carly Simon and Oprah. Oprah says it was a first for her—she drank tequila until dawn!
John says he had a revelation about turning the big 5-0, "You feel alive to the degree that you feel you can help others."
