Paul McCartney watched “Yesterday” in disguise

In an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, Paul McCartney revealed that he watched Danny Boyle’s movie “Yesterday” in disguise and still have dreams with John Lennon.


The musician went to the movies with his wife, Nancy Shevell, sneaked in and sat in the back row to watch Yesterday, the Beatles movie without the Beatles and who imagines the world without the band.

“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.

In one of the scenes of the movie, John Lennon was played by actor Robert Carlyle at a very exciting time. In fact, it is quite unexpected, because the musician appears with 78 years old, that Lennon would have these days.
