When John Lennon snubbed Jon Voight's dinner meeting proposal

June 11, 2011 - Washington

Movie star, Jon Voight has revealed that John Lennon had once snubbed a dinner meeting with him.

The actor said that while he was walking down London's King's Road, a fan told him that Lennon was dining nearby and so he decided that it was time for him to meet the singer.

"I went to the door of the restaurant and I asked one of the maitre d's... 'I don't wanna bother John, but could you tell him Jon Voight, the actor..., is out here (and) would love to come in and say hello," Contactmusic quoted Voight as saying.

"I was thinking, 'This will be fun...' And the maitre d' comes back and goes, 'Mr. Lennon doesn't really want to be bothered..."he added.

The actor who never got another chance to meet the Beatle's star, also said that he would have liked to meet him.

"I just made my way back to my little apartment with my girlfriend... I never did meet John; I would have liked to," he said.
