Video: Yoko Approves of Lennon Biopic 'Nowhere Boy'Yoko Ono has long been a mercurial figure when it comes to deceased husband John Lennon and the Beatles. She has disapproved of all sorts of tributes and spins on John's work and life (she even cut down a Purple Magazine photo of her son, Sean Lennon, imitating the famous Yoko and John cover of Rolling Stone, reportedly calling it "a farce and a spoof"), but has given her blessing to sometimes random projects like 'The Beatles: Rock Band' video game in 2009.

Fortunately, the new biopic 'Nowhere Boy,' depicting the troubled youth of a pre-Beatles Lennon, nabbed Yoko's stamp of approval. At a screening last week in New York, Ono (seen at right with 20-year-old Aaron Johnson, who portrays Lennon) was announced by director Sam Taylor-Wood for a brief introduction to the film.

"I'm so glad you guys are here to watch this film. The first time I saw this film, I was choked up. It's an incredibly, incredibly real film. That's what I like about it; [Sam] is telling the truth," Yoko said.
