A morning mix of entertainment headlines...
John Travolta was recently denied the opportunity to dine at KFC. The actor apparently tried to make an advance reservation at a KFC in West Sussex, England, where he was attending a Scientology conference last weekend, but a staff member said the man who played Danny Zuko would have to wait in line like everyone else who seeks a variety big box meal. A spokesperson for the Col. Sanders chain has since said the restaurant would have been happy to save a table for him if the employee had realized the request was genuine. (And really, can you blame the staffer for thinking it was a joke? We all know Travolta’s a Royale With Cheese man.) (Daily Mail)
The on-again, off-again Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel attended the L.A. premiere of Timberlake’s “In Time” together. Which suggests that they are on again. An unnamed “eyewitness” tells People that they displayed affection toward one another and also, “at one point, she pretended to punch him a couple times and he gamely bounced up and down like a jack in the box.” Eyewitnesses — they’re always using adverbs like gamely.

According to Us Weekly, Beyonce and Jay-Z are building a 2,200-square-foot nursery for their baby, a.k.a. Sasha Fetus. Mariah Carey’s and Nick Cannon’s $100K nursery may look like a closet by comparison. (Us)

Stephen Colbert gets on Chris Martin’s case for “stealing” Gwyneth Paltrow, after the jump.
What’s the hot movie trend in Hollywood right now? No, not sequels or comic book adaptations. According to the Hollywood Reporter, it’s the Old Testament. (THR)
Chris Martin appeared on last night’s “The Colbert Report,” where Stephen Colbert accused the Brit of “stealing our Gwyneth” and asked if the U.K. could offer America Keira Knightley in return. Watch the interview below.
