Little did we know when we saw Paul McCartney at Coachella a few weeks ago that Scottish bombshell Shirley Manson was in the audience, too. But according to what she told fellow Scot Craig Ferguson Tuesday night, she was having a little trouble concentrating on the legendary Beatle. Because, naturally, she couldn’t stop thinking about Angela Lansbury. Wait, what?
Apparently a while back Craig told Shirley that he thought McCartney bore a striking resemblance to the “Murder She Wrote” star. And really? We won’t put up too much of a fight here. Maybe not young Paul McCartney, but older, kind of jowel-y Paul McCartney? Yeah, sure. We’ll bite. So it seems that while Shirley wanted to be awed by the fact that she was staring up at a Beatle, all she could think was that she was staring into the strangely masculine doppelganger of Angela Lansbury.
You can watch Shirley’s full re-telling of the incident (and some more photographic proof) here.
