John Travolta was in West Sussex over the weekend and was seriously craving some fried chicken. So naturally, one of his reps called the local KFC outpost to book a table for Travolta and his guests, before they headed to a Scientology event.

Unfortunately for the Pulp Fiction star, the worker who received the call turned down the request. "The lady who called didn't give me her name, she just said it will be for a Mr. Travolta," he told the Daily Mail. "That threw me a little bit. I thought it might be a load of nonsense, but she seemed pretty serious."

Imagine! Being so famous people don't believe you want to eat at KFC. So instead of waiting in the queue like a normal person, Travolta skipped KFC and went directly to his event. And KFC missed out.

"In hindsight, of course, we would have reserved a table for him," KFC reps told the Daily Mail. "It's not every day you get a Hollywood star eating in your restaurant."
