Movie mogul STEVEN SPIELBERG paid a high price to see British film BILLY ELLIOT - he had to buy four tickets.
The top director wanted to take actress wife KATE CAPSHAW to see the movie and ordered two tickets to a Hollywood cinema by phone on his credit card.
The tickets failed to arrive and when he got to the cinema, stingy staff insisted he buy another two. Megarich Steve remained unfazed and emerged later saying, "It was well worth all the cash."(KW/WNTST/PDD)
