Paul McCartney graced the cover of the latest issue of Billboard and spoke about the Danny Boyle directed film, Yesterday. The film stars Himesh Patel as a singer/songwriter in a world where everyone’s forgotten about the Beatles expect for him. McCartney and his wife apparently snuck into a theater in the Hamptons to check it out.
“I didn’t think anything more of it. Then someone said Danny Boyle would direct it, and I thought, ‘They must think they can pull it off.’ And I thought nothing more of it until they asked if I wanted to see a screening. I asked Nancy, and we said, ‘Let’s go, you and me, on a date to the cinema’.”
He continued: “We were in the Hamptons in the summer and there it was, so we got two tickets and walked in when the cinema went dark. Only a couple of people saw us. We were in the back row, giggling away, especially at all the mentions of Paul McCartney. A couple of people in front of us spotted us, but everyone else was watching the film. We loved it.”
