Veteran actress Faye Dunaway used her celebrity clout to get a half-price meal at a Los Angeles restaurant last week (ends06JUN03).

The CHINATOWN star ordered half a plate of pasta at the eaterie - then demanded that she should only pay half the money for her meal.

However, when the waiter responded that the restaurant were unable to serve half portions, Dunaway exploded, "I'm Faye Dunaway and restaurants always give me what I want!"

The chastised waiter reluctantly agreed to only charge the 62-year-old for half of her meal.
