Shoppers at a Morrisons store in Norfolk were stunned to see Hollywood star John Travolta “sauntering around the digestive biscuits”.
The 68-year-old, best known for his role as T-Birds leader Danny Zuko in the 1978 film Grease, was pictured with fans in the shop and at the nearby Wetherspoon pub in Dereham.
Sam Frary and her husband Kevin were “going about (their) normal business” at the Morrisons in Fakenham when she turned to see Travolta, who is believed to be making a short film in West Raynham, Norfolk.
“I looked and said, ‘That’s… John Travolta!’ but he didn’t believe me,” Ms Frary, a customer service adviser from Sculthorpe, told the PA news agency.
“He just sauntered around the digestive biscuits and most shoppers had no idea who they were standing next to.
“He was so outgoing and friendly that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to speak to him when he came and was standing next to me at the end of the checkout.”
Ms Frary said she apologized to Travolta for interrupting his day at “good ol’ Fakenham” and asked for a photo with the movie star.
“He was more than happy about it, even when I was pretty close,” said the 51-year-old.
“He was like a regular guy doing the everyday things that we all have to do.
“To say I was thrilled is an understatement… Never in a million years would I have thought I would share the cookie department with an A-list Hollywood star.”
His eyes will stay with me forever… just so kindSam Frary
Ms Frary also admitted she was a huge fan of Travolta prior to their brief chat.
“Damn yeah, who isn’t?” she said.
“I grew up watching Grease and would you believe it – it was on TV when we got home,” she added.
“His eyes will stay with me forever… just so kind.”
