Paul McCartney Claims He Masturbated With John Lennon—And Zach Braff Wins The Internet With His Reaction 😂

Sir Paul McCartney shocked the world recently when he shared some of his previously Untold Stories about The Beatles with GQ Magazine and while reactions from fans were pretty mixed—Actor/Director Zach Braff may just have had the best response yet.

Among the revelations included are: Paul’s confirmation that they all cheered for the loss of George Harrison’s virginity, that he did, indeed meet Elvis on at least one occasion, the status of orgies and the band, and that once (or maybe twice) he and fellow founding member John Lennon (with a little help from his friends) masturbated in a room together while shouting out names like Brigitte Bardot.  (*Trust us—if you haven’t read this juicy piece yet you really should.)

While some just shrugged off McCartney’s confession as young men bonding in the good old days of rock-n-roll, others were slightly more skeeved out: 

But it was Braff that gave the McCartney news its second life on Twitter when he retweeted The Hollywood Reporter‘s take on the story with with these words to his Scrubs co-star:

  .@donald_faison call me asap.

Most fans got the joke immediately:

For those who may have forgotten, Faison was Braff’s partner in bromance on the show, with some of the most epic guy-love scenes ever. Eagle anyone? 


Including one memorable scene between the two about self-love:

Some definitely thought there was meme-orable commentary to be made:

Others chose a more Beatles-centric approach:

For those interested in the details, here were Sir Paul’s exact words:

What it was, was over at John’s house, and it was just a group of us. And instead of just getting roaring drunk and partying—I don’t even know if we were staying over or anything—we were all just in these chairs, and the lights were out, and somebody started masturbating, so we all did.

GQ says that the group encouraged each other to shout out inspiration fodder for the act:

  We were just, ‘Brigitte Bardot!’ ‘Whoo!’ and then everyone would thrash a bit more.

Until John left them all cold with the name he shouted:

I think it was John sort of said, ‘Winston Churchill!’

When asked by the interviewer if this sort of thing happened often, McCartney replied:

 I think it was a one-off, or maybe it was like a two-off. It wasn’t a big thing. But, you know, it was just the kind of thing you didn’t think much of. It was just a group. Yeah, it’s quite raunchy when you think about it. There’s so many things like that from when you’re a kid that you look back on and you’re, ‘Did we do that?’ But it was good harmless fun. It didn’t hurt anyone. Not even Brigitte Bardot.

No comment yet from Madame Bardot.
