Hollywood’s glitterati turned out in force to the debut screening of Paul McCartney’s latest music video on Friday. Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr and Reese Witherspoon were in attendance as the world’s favourite aging scouser unveiled a series of self-directed videos for his new single “My Valentine”. The real focus, however, was not on those treading the red carpet, but the two A-listers starring in the films: Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp. The series comprises three videos, including a solo performance from Portman as she mimes and signs along to McCartney’s vocals.

Celeb cameos are nothing new. In fact, Elton John has been queen of cameo-casting for some time, opting for pretty boys like Robert Downey Jr to be the face of his songs. Wonderland takes a look at some of the best and most bizarre promo cameos from actors-turned-mime artists. Keep an eye out for a particularly soapy Joan Collins…
