Actor John Travolta took time out of filming on his upcoming movie LADDER 49 to host an English tea party for men in drag.

The PULP FICTION star, who appears in the movie alongside Balthazar Getty and Joaquin Phoenix, often enjoys hosting tea parties for ladies in his trailer on the set of his films.

But, due to the lack of female castmembers in the firefighting movie, he was forced to settle for second best.

Getty says, "I challenged him to throw a proper English tea party with scones, clotted cream and jam and the little sandwiches and everything.

"I told him I'd wear white gloves. Next thing you know, we're putting on dresses, handbags and hats - the whole nine. We surprised him and we all showed up in drag."
