Julian Lennon didn’t like his father’s scene in the movie “Yesterday”

Released in 2019 and directed by the famous British director Danny Boyle, the comedy film “Yesterday” showed the story of a world where the Beatles didn’t exist and only one man knew their songs. There was one particular scene in the movie where John Lennon is portrayed by the actor Robert Carlyle. Julian Lennon, the oldest son of the late Beatle said in an interview with Kevin Nealon that he loved the movie but when that scene appeared it ruined the whole film for him, because he didn’t like it.

“I actually loved that film ‘Yesterday’ until they put that weird bit of an impression of what dad would look like in his 70s and 80s or whatever, up in this Scottish or Irish island. It kind of threw the whole film off for me. I didn’t get [it]. It wasn’t necessary for me, I don’t think. And it was just weird,” Julian Lennon said.

In the same conversation he said that he saw already in the internet many simulations that people do of his father looking older.

Paul McCartney watched the movie disguised

Talking with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show back in 2019, Paul McCartney said that he watched “Yesterday” in the cinema disguised so that no one could recognize him.

The musician went to the movies with his wife, Nancy Shevell, sneaked in and sat in the back row.

“It was really fun. We were in the back row, and someone in the movie says, ‘Paul McCartney, the greatest songwriter in history.’ I had to laugh. It was really cool. We wanted to see the movie with people, not executives I thought it was great,” McCartney said.
