Kotb, 57, replied, ‘Yes, I’m doing good. By the way, I’m just going to pause for a second. Another wonderful thing about you is what you just did there. Thank you – thank you for asking.’

Newton-John said, 'Anyone that has gone on this journey with cancer, it's unknown destinations and surprises and turns'

Newton-John told Kotb, ‘Of course, we’re sisters. Anyone that has gone on this journey with cancer, it’s unknown destinations and surprises and turns.’

The Grease alum was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer four years ago, almost three decades after her initial cancer diagnosis. She previously was diagnosed with cancer in 1992 and in 2013.

Newton-John told Kotb that she’s ‘a really lucky person’ as she’s persevered in her current battle.

‘I have my days, I have my pains, but the cannabis that my husband grows for me has been such a huge part of my healing,’ said the Grease actress.

In the interview, Newton-John also opened up about her hit 1981 track Physical amid the racy track’s 40th anniversary.

‘How is this possible that I’m still talking about a song that I recorded 40 years ago and people still like it?’ Newton-John said. ‘Today the lyrics are like a lullaby, don’t you reckon?

‘But in those days … I remember listening to it and going, “That’s a really great song,” and didn’t really tune in to what it was about. And then when I recorded it, I started to panic, and I called my manager and said, “I think I’ve gone too far with this song. It’s just too much.”

She recalled, ‘And he said, “Well, it’s too late love, it’s taken off everywhere.”‘
