Mccartney Clashed With Taylor Wood Over Script
Director SAM TAYLOR WOOD was forced to rework her NOWHERE BOY script about JOHN LENNON's early life - after SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY objected to the portrayal of his bandmate's aunt.
MCCartney protested after learning the filmmaker planned to show Lennon's aunt Mimi, who raised the late star from the age of five, as a cold-hearted disciplinarian.
And Taylor Wood eventually changed the script after MCCartney expressed his concerns.
The veteran musician explains, "I said, 'Sam, this isn't true.' Aunt Mimi was not cruel. She was mock strict. But she was a good heart who loved John madly."
