Slipping into town to sign copies of Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's novel "Battlefield Earth," which he has made into a movie, John Travolta aced our Exciting Celebrity Tip Challenge. The barrel-chested actor left an extra $80 -- or 133 percent -- on a $60 lunch tab Sunday at Guards restaurant in Georgetown, where he and an unidentified male companion ordered four appetizers -- shrimp cocktail, brie, calamari and smoked salmon -- plus a cheddar cheese burger for Travolta and a crab meat and asparagus omelet for his friend. Then dessert -- chocolate mousse and key lime pie. No wonder Mean magazine dubbed Travolta "The Star Who Ate Hollywood."
