Sir Paul McCartney smartens up for Depp visits
Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney always makes a "real effort" when Johnny Depp visits his house - even though the Hollywood actor always turns up looking like an "old cowboy".
The pair are firm friends and make sure they put time aside in their busy schedules to see each other.
McCartney has laughed that he and his family make a special effort when the superstar drops by.
Laughing, he told The Sun: " “John — if I can just drop a name there — comes visiting quite a lot. It’s cool. I had my daughter and her husband and the kids staying there recently, and my little one Beatrice. I said to them all, ‘By the way, Johnny Depp is coming round’. They all perked up — ‘Oh yeah?’ I said, ‘Yeah, he’s coming round tomorrow’. That morning I come into breakfast and the first guy coming in is Mary’s husband, and I say, ‘You look very smart today’.
He added: “Then Nancy comes in, she’s all smartened up — make-up, you know. Normally, everyone bowls in bleary-eyed. Then suddenly they are all laughing at me because I’m in a waistcoat and I’ve done it too — subconsciously made a real effort. Everyone, Beatrice, all smartly dressed for our special guest.
“Then Johnny comes in like he’s an old cowboy. He just hung out, it was really nice. He brought me this funky little guitar as a gift. He’s a really decent player. Before he was an actor, when he was about 17, he was in a group.”
