OK! (Australia) - - This Week -

Any old dif­fer­ences were wa­ter un­der the bridge when Olivia New­ton-john hugged it out with Delta Goodrem at her ONJ Mas­quer­ade Gala on Septem­ber 8.

There were ru­mours the Grease leg­end had stopped tak­ing Delta’s calls af­ter she ac­cepted the role of Olivia in a con­tro­ver­sial biopic two years ago.

Speak­ing out last year, Olivia, 68, said she felt plans for the minis­eries were ‘sur­real and odd’. ‘It is a very strange thing for them to be mak­ing a movie about me,’ she ad­mit­ted.

Even so, she says Delta, 32, and the project has her sup­port. ‘I think Delta is a great choice. She is won­der­ful,’ says Olivia. ‘It took me a while to come around about the show in the be­gin­ning, but I do see it as an hon­our.’

It was the first pub­lic ap­pear­ance for Olivia af­ter she re­ceived her sec­ond breast cancer di­ag­no­sis in May.

‘I’m win­ning over cancer,’ Olivia con­firmed the happy news to Richard Wilkins at the Mel­bourne event. ‘I wouldn’t be hu­man if I wasn’t scared at some mo­ments. But I have an in­ner be­lief sys­tem that I will get through it.’
