‘He was a really good friend, that’s my memory. Besides the musician and the Beatle. and the guy who loved racing cars and gardens, Y’know he was a really good friend of mine” - Ringo Starr, red carpet interview, ‘Living In The Material World’ UK Premiere in London, October 2011

You don’t choose who you fall in love with, do you? And once you do fall in love - that obsessive sort of love, that all consuming love, where two people can’t stand to be apart from Eachother for even one moment - how are you supposed to let a love like that pass you by?

Now get over here and kiss me.’ So I walk up really close to his face and then I’m like, ‘Maybe I should kiss him. When else am I ever going to get a chance to kiss Leo DiCaprio, ever?” But another part of my brain clicks and I just go, Whack! I hit him in the face.

They’ll probably sue you as well in case there’s a bruise on his face and he needs to film something else.’ ‘And then all of a sudden Marty and Leo just burst out laughing. Marty says, “That was great!” Leo’s like, “Hit me again!
