Ewan McGregor has gone full frontal in films plenty of times, but that doesn’t mean he’s proud about his penis. So how do we know that the Star Wars actor isn’t exactly bragging about his endowment? His co-star Colin Farrell, of course.
In an interview with Nylon, Farrell had no problem with talking about Ewan’s penis size, so he could highlight the actor’s humility.
In a profile feature for McGregor, Colin boasts about his friend and Cassandra’s Dream co-star. “I don’t think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well hung would—or should—or could be. I think that’s the greatest demonstration of his innate humility, that he doesn’t wear it like a badge of honor.”
Although he won’t talk about his penis, McGregor has spoke about doing nude scenes. As far as nude scenes go, Ewan has done plenty, as he goes full frontal in movies like Trainspotting, I Love You Philip Morris, and Young Adam.
“Being naked is something that happens in either end of the day for me, and if you’re lucky, somewhere in the middle as well, And I don’t understand why it’s an issue.”
He continued, “I don’t take my clothes off in movies because I want to flash my body around. I took my clothes off for movies because I’m an actor. I believe the movies that I make say something about the world and therefore they should reflect human instincts and natures and desires. A big part of that for us is our sexual life and romantic life.”
As for how his projects reflect his life, Ewan seems to keep his children in mind when he looks back on his body of work. “I’ve been a dad for 18 years. Your work reflects your life, and the biggest element of my life is that I’m a dad. That’s the most important thing of all. And yet it’s been relatively unexplored.”
That said, Ewan wasn’t always as humble as his co-star Colin Farrell insists he is. Back in the 90s the actor said he was full of himself, but that quickly changed when he was in Cannes promoting Trainspotting.
“I was arriving at the red carpet after the screening, and I was just feeling like, ‘Has there ever been a bigger movie star?’ And I walked up to the hundreds of thousands of photographers, and I took my arrogant stance. And then every single lens in the whole f–king area went whoosh. I turned around and Mick Jagger was getting out of a car. And I realized I had to get over myself.”
