John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono has accused Sir Paul McCartney for hiding his true persona from the public, claiming he's "distant" in real life.

The eccentric artist has often has an extremely strained relationship with the BEATLES star, and claims he often covers up his true personality with his natural charm.

She says, "Sometimes it's true we don't see eye-to-eye. Paul has become quite distant. It's an aspect of his personality that people don't know, probably because he rarely shows that side. Sometimes he's charming."

However, the 70-year-old artist has only praise to heap on Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.

She says, "With Ringo, it's a little bit easier - he's very sweet."
