Personal Quote:

I did fancy Paul (Paul McCartney). I went through the whole Beatles. I started fancying John Lennon and then he wasn't interested, obviously. And then I went on to Paul and he wasn't interested. And I got on to George (George Harrison) and he wasn't interested. And who'd have thought that Ringo (Ringo Starr) today would look the cute one? He does. He used to look like Yasser Arafat.
