Sir Paul has admitted to Britain's BBC Radio One that he recently spent a day in London disguised as a beggar:
"It was for a film thing and it was something I'd always wanted to do So I scruffed myself up a bit, put on a false beard and shades, and went down to Leicester Square tube station. A couple of people came up and said, 'Is it you?' but I just said, 'Oh, no'. But I got a few shillings and I thought, 'This doesn't feel right' So I gave it to charity."
Sir Paul told Radio One that he doesn't have a problem going out in public:
"Nobody recognizes me much, particularly when on the Tube and you're sitting there like a zombie, and people go, 'No, it can't be!' I know a lot of stars who won't go to the supermarket or the cinema, but I do. The worst thing that can happen is someone will ask you for an autograph and if that happens I just go, 'Sorry, I'm shopping'. But I'll shake their hand and say hello."
