He also revealed that he has adopted Alec's approach to rejecting pictures in public.
Paul explained: "I don't like to take pictures. When people say, 'Can I have a picture?' cause everyone's got a camera (on their phone)... I say, 'I'm sorry, I don't do pictures.'"
The 78-year-old musician continued: "We were sitting around afterwards, talking and we're having a bite to eat outdoors. Someone comes up to Alec and says, 'Can I have your (photograph) with Sir Paul?' He looks, with that Alec look, and says, 'I'm sorry, I don't do pictures.'
"He held it and I just thought, 'That's the line!'"
Paul revealed that he would rather sit and have a chat with a fan and feels like a "monkey" when he asked to take part in a photo opportunity.
He told the Smartless podcast: "I sometimes feel like I have to say, 'Look, I'm happy to talk to you, sit down, we can talk' – I like that, cause I'm still me.
"The minute I put my arm around you, you put your arm around me, I feel like the monkey in St. Tropez – 'Come and have your picture taken with the monkey!' and I don't like that, it puts me off."
McCartney quipped that the coronavirus pandemic has had a positive side as he can walk around relatively incognito in a face mask.
He joked: "The one good thing about the virus is everyone's got masks."
