British icon Noel Gallagher has revealed he rejected the chance to appear on the 'Trainspotting' soundtrack because he thought it was a film about train enthusiasts.
The 51-year-old star has revealed his iconic band were offered the chance to feature on the soundtrack of the Danny Boyle-directed movie, which explores issues such as drug addiction and poverty, but Noel decided against it because he thought it was literally about trainspotting.
He shared: ''I turned down the chance to be part of the 'Trainspotting' soundtrack because I thought it was a movie about trainspotters.
''Oasis were on the other side of the world at the time and someone said, 'Do you want to get involved in this new film that's called 'Trainspotting'?' And I went, 'Trainspotters? F**k that!''
Despite being one of the world's best-known musicians, Noel doesn't enjoy all of aspects of his success.
In particular, the British star admitted to hating taking selfies with fans and has even developed a method trying to avoid them altogether.
He told Matt Morgan in a YouTube interview: ''This is a failing of mine, and I can't help it. If I see somebody approaching me with a camera to do that thing, if I see them from a distance then I will pretend to be intimidating because I don't want to have my picture taken.
''I just give them a look which says, 'What the f***ing hell do you want?' I think I am more intimidating than I am. I'm a lovely guy, really.''
