• Paul McCartney's teen crush was Queen Elizabeth
  • He said the Queen "was a babe" in a new film
  • The Beatle appeared in a royal documentary

For a young Paul McCartney, Queen Elizabeth II was the dream woman. The Beatles legend revealed the Queen was his teenage crush in a new documentary, and he had an amusing comment on the memory.

Paul McCartney reveals his childhood crush: The Queen!

In the trailer for Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts, McCartney declares: "We grew up loving the Queen. To us teenagers, she was a babe!"

Born in 1942, McCartney was 9 years old when Queen Elizabeth, then 25, ascended the throne. So his teen years and most of his childhood were during the young Queen's reign.

The two have connected several times over the years, including when Sir Paul was knighted in 1997 for his services to music.

Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts, where McCartney spoke on the Queen, is an upcoming documentary by director Roger Michell.

The filmmaker passed away at age 65 last year, and Elizabeth is his final work. A trailer dropped today and the documentary debuts in June.
