Thinking that the call was a prank, the worker who took the call declined Travolta's request and told his rep he could wait in line for his drumsticks and biscuits just like everyone else.
After realizing the call was legit, a spokesperson for KFC said, "In hindsight, of course, we would have reserved a table for him," but the employee who took the call stood by the decision. "To me, customers are customers, no matter who they are. It doesn't make a difference if someone is famous."
Travolta may have missed out on fried chicken Friday, but he likely made up for it with a swanky dinner Saturday at the Saint Hill Manor, a mansion on 60 acres of grounds that Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard bought in 1959.
