Actor Woody Harrelson, who has been friends with The Beatles singer Paul McCartney for a while, now has an incident where he looked up to the singer to get out of a troublesome situation.

The actor had punched a TMZ photographer at the La Guardia Airport back in 2009 and the reporter filed a complaint with police claiming that the actor’s push had damaged his camera Harrelson released a statement later. He said via CNN,

“I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport, I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie.”

The actor later shared during an interview with EW via Page Six that after the incident he felt the need to have a good line to explain his action, which was when he turned toward The Beatles singer;

“I went to my favorite restaurant in New York and Paul McCartney was there. [McCartney] was like, ‘Just say you mistook him for a zombie.’ I had the press release written before I went to bed.”

The actor was with his daughter at the time of the incident and had mentioned in 2012 during an interview at The Howard Stern Show that it was Paul McCartney who had taught him how to sail. Woody noted that McCartney and his wife are really cool people to hang out with.
