I remember Tracey Ullman in an interview saying she was a Beatles fan. I saw at least three Beatles related skits on her HBO show 'Tracey Takes On' a few years ago.

Yah, Tom Hanks was a fan of the Beatles.
He was part of the cast for the Monty Python skit "Lumberjack" in Concert for George.

I would've LOVED to see that Oprah episode with Paulie! I had no idea she liked the Beatles! Right on

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">Remember his cameo in her video, "They Don't Know" or whatever it was called? I see it every once in a while on VH1-Classic. Cute! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Ricki Lake -- I remember seeing some interview with her a few years back where she said that she collected Beatles memorabilia and that her (then) young son LOVED the Beatles too.

John Ritter (if they are looking for ANY celebrities -- it didn't specify if they had to be alive or dead) was a huge Beatles fan too -- in fact, after he died I read in an article that his character on Three's Company, Jack Tripper, was originally supposed to be called Jack TRIPP, and he insisted on TrippER in homage to the song Day Tripper.

Steven Spielberg, yes -- but the director of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" was/is Robert Zemeckis, also a HUGE fan.

I can probably think of more...didn't we have a topic about this someplace fairly recently? I seem to recall it...hmmm...

I read that John Ritter was a John Lennon guy and that Ricki Lake is a Paul afficionado. [img]graemlins/smile1.gif[/img] She has taught her son well! [img]graemlins/thumbsup2.gif[/img]

There was a lot of celebrities at Paulīs concerts in the US in 2002, I remember at least Sylvester Stallone, John Cusack, Tom Cruise & Penelope Cruz, Jack Nicholson, Paul Stanley and Michael Douglas from the DVD and there was a whole bunch of others I canīt remember right know. I presume they like the Beatles as well, since many of them were singing and rocking to the Beatles songs. [img]graemlins/rocknroll2.gif[/img]

I also think Majandra Delfino from the TV series 'Roswell' likes the Beatles, at least I read she would like to do a duet with Paul on 'For No One'.

I think Courtney Cox Arquette is a big Paul fan. I remember she used "Maybe I'm Amazed" as her wedding's song. And in the scene of her marriage with Chandler in Friends, she was the one who asked the violinists to play the tune of "My Love" as you can see it in that episode.

I know that the members of Bon Jovi, especially Richie Sambora, are really big fans of the Beatles.

Also Aerosmith, I remember when I was watching their Behind the Music and Steven Tyler quoted them. They also did a cover of "Come Together".

Dave Matthews is a big fan. He did that Lennon Tribute thing a couple of years ago and sang "In My Life." Blues Traveler does a cover of "Imagine" on Live From the Fall, so they're more than likely fans, too. Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers made several references to the Beatles in Bass Player and the whole band did a mock-up of Sgt. Pepper for a magazine cover awhile back. The somewhat lesser-known Jack Johnson is a big fan, doing a killer cover of "Rocky Racoon."

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">Now that you mentioned it, Jason Behr from the TV series 'Roswell' was asked the question 'if you could be in any band, what would it be' and he answered 'the Beatles'.

Also... not sure if he's been mentioned, but Paul Reiser (Mad About You) is a fan. Yoko was on the show once - she wanted him to film the wind! [img]graemlins/laugh2.gif[/img]

River Phoenix, whose middlename is by the way Jude, because his parents liked the Beatles too. He's only one I know that hasn't been mentioned.

Renee Zelwegger is a huge Paul fan. She said she used to sing his songs all of the time and has always had a huge crush on him.
I don't know if anyone mentioned these, but I know Cameron Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, and the guys from Sum 41 all are big fans.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">Maybe it was Michelle Branch because I was reading an article about her in a magazine. It said something about how she thought the lyric was "she's got a chicken to ride" and when she found out the real lyrics, she was heartbroken and decided to write her own music to express that. And now she's famous.
