25 Days / Day 20 / Ewan McGregor

1 Comment


Who: Ewan McGregor, World’s Sexiest Scotsman

Why: I can’t even narrow down why I love Ewan because there is so much but here’s a stab at it: he’s funny, sexy, charming, talented, he was the only good thing in the Star Wars prequels, he has an amazing singing voice, he wears clothes really frickin’ well, he used to be nude in every movie, and he works his ass off so there is always something to watch him in that I haven’t seen yet

When: Mid-90’s when he first started getting noticed to now, obviously

Level of Obsession: I don’t actively obsess about Ewan until I see him in an interview or a trailer for a movie he’s in and I am reminded how much I love him. Then I go on Netflix and overload the queue with his stuff and poke around on-line and swoon over pictures and berate myself “how could I forget how much I love Ewan?!?”

“Ahhhh!” Moment(s): The wardrobe porn in Cassandra’s Dream; Christian in Moulin Rouge, especially “because she doesn’t LOVE YOU!” and Your Song; “Father What-a-Waste” in Angels and Demons; this clip of him singing U2’s Running to Stand Still

Oh Ewan. I love him so. He is a master at playing sexy beasts who aren’t afraid to bare their ass (The Pillow Book) and sweet, earnest men you want to take home to mothers (Little Voice). He’s versatile enough to play period pieces and contemporary characters without ever looking out of place in either. He’s handsome in a kind of non-traditional rugged way and of course his brogue is all kinds of hot. He’s another one who elevates whatever he’s in just by being in it, and he buys into the premise of even his silliest movies so you buy in to it with him (Down with Love). When I see him I always have to bellow “EWAN!” because he’s just so deserving of having his name hollered for no other reason than his sheer awesomeness

  1. Hot, but…I vote Gerard Butler as World’s Sexiest Scotsman, sorry! 😛
