I'm in a typy mood today, so I think I'll type out this interview with Ewan from Woman's Journal

Great Scot! By John Milar
Ewan McGregor is sipping a pint of Guiness in a Soho club and wondering how much longer he's going to be able to enjoy such simple pleasures. He's a young man on the verge of monumental changes in his life - and he knows it. Ewan seems to have made the leap quite effortlessly from Crieff, his Perthshire hometown, to stardom. Films like Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, Velvet Goldmine and Little Voice have earned him international recognition as a star and a sex symbol.
Posters of him in the t-shirted guise of Renton, the junkie anti-hero of Trainspotting, gaze down from the bedroom walls of teenage girls. Over in Japan he's featured on huge billboards, endorsing jeans. Ewan jokes that one day he'd like to see those billboards. Right now though he's been rather busy, on both sides of the camera, starring in the thriller Eye of the Beholder, the Nick Leeson story Rogue Trader, and Nora, which is about writer James Joyce and his wife. Twenty-eight-year-old Ewan has also made his directorial debut with a short film in Tube Tales, a series of stories set on the London Underground.
But now, appearing in Star Wars : Episode One: The Phantom Menace as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi - the part played by Alec Guiness in the original movie trilogy - is going to make Ewan an intergalactic star. We are talking just before the American opening og the sci-fi epic, the most eagerly awaited cinematic event of the decade. The movie, which finally reaches Britain on 16th July, is also tipped to overtake Titanic as the biggest box offive blockbuster. If, as it seems, the Force is indeed with him, the Scot will soon occupy an extremely significant chapter in film history.
Ewan smiles and rubs a hand across his face - he stopped shaving to tread the boards of the London stage in Little Malcolm And His Struggle Against The Eunuchs. He grins as he confesses that he still hasn't begun to grasp the potential impact of following in the jet stream of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, let alone being part of a whole new Star Wars generation.
'I did worry about what Star Wars might do to my life, but I realised that what was much more important to me was making the movie,' he says slowly, in that distinctive, soft lilt that female fans find so seductive. 'And I have to hold on to that because I can't know what it will do or prepare myself for it, anyway. We'll just see what happens. The worry, career-wise is that the public can't ever watch you in anything else again, because they just see you as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now that it a big worry. If it happens to me then I'll just have to direct and I won't act any more. I'd miss that because I love acting. I hope that I've done enough different films for that sort of typecasting not to happen to me. I just hope it will be fine.'
Throughout this speech, the broad, gleaming smile never leaves Ewan McGregor's face. The impression given is that he has seriously considered the pros and cons of starring in the biggest movie of his career. And he's going to do his damnedest not to let it affect his attitude towards his work or his natural, easy-going nature. But he concedes that Star Wars is likely to knock everything that he's taken for granted - like nipping down to the pub or having a wander through the city streets - into orbit.
'It is getting harder to do normal stuff,' he says. I rarely go down to my local pub any more. It's a pity because it's where I liked to go for a pint. And now, when I'm going around town, I put my head down a bit. Sometimes I get guys coming up trying to cause trouble - usually late at night, when they're drunk - just because, in their eyes, I'm famous. That's boring. But you have to walk away. Sometimes you don't want to. They've gone laughing to their mates that they pissed you off and you'd love to give them a clout, but you can't.'
Even when he discusses that irritaion, Ewan McGregor can't stop himself from flashing an impish grin. He laughs and jokes a lot. But his boyish good-humour vanishes and his chatty manner becomes deadly serious as he recalls how he and his wife, French set designer Eve Mavrakis, coped with the biggest crisis in their lives when their daughter Clara, now three, nearly died.
Ewan was thousands of miles away in Loas Angeles, having just done a guest appearance in ER, when he discovered that his tiny daughter, on whom he dotes, was in hospital. He recalls each fragment of the nightmare as though it only happened yesterday.
'On the day I was leaving I had three or four hours to kill until I was collected to be taken to the airport. When I called home, the nanny told me that Eve and Clara were at the hospital. When I called the hospital and got through to the emergency department, Eve answered the phone in a monotone voice, sounding as though somebody had died. I was so terrified, it was horrendous,' he says.
'She said it was meningitis and, do you know, I didn't even know what that was. I just said, "Well, they'll treat it", not realising. After that I was phoning back every 10 or 20 minutes. I was going out of my mind. It was horrible.'
Ewan was sitting in a daze at Los Angeles airport, not knowing how he'd get through the flight. He was spotted by a film producer who'd worked with the young Scot. He had three children himself, so he understood what Ewan was going through, and offered support.
'So I had somebody to talk to about it. He saved my bacon, really. He also had some Temazepam which helped, because it knocked me out. I woke up and we were on the tarmac at Heathrow. Then I remember going through customs. I'm always, always stopped - but this time I just looked at the officials. They must have read the expression on my face because I was thinking, "If you stop me, I'll kill you." Anyway, they let me through. Getting to the hospital was such a huge relief, especially since when I arrived Clara was out of imminent danger, though it didn't look like that to me.'
As Clara got better, the family celebrated her first birthday in the hospital where she was born. Now Ewan says that terrible experience has made him value his loved ones even more than before.
'It all seems like a bad dream when I look back,' he says. 'It was a really horrible feeling being away when all this happened to my daughter. It makes you value what you have at home. That's ultimately all that matters. You don't want to be lying on your deathbed with your favourite director and producer around you, you want your family by your side.'
When I wonder whether he and Eve, 35, plan any additions to their family, his response is immediate. 'Yes, I think we will have more children. I'm just waiting for things to settle down,' says Ewan, who wants to finish work on the new family home in North London before there's any more baby talk.
'We've been trying to get the work done for two years and its finally started,' he explains. 'We've been living in a tiny two bedroom flat waiting for the house to be ready.'
It's been alleged that Ewan signed a $4 million deal woth Star Wars and he's made an awful lot of films in a relatively short time. Does this mean that he's now extraordinarily wealthy?
'No,' he chuckles. 'I'm not - because I have this house. When I bought it, it was very expensive and I'm having it completely guttedand rebuilt on the inside.That has sapped my money at the moment. I'm skint, or I will be after the house is finished.'
Somehow you don't imagine that we're going to have to worry about Ewan McGregor being down on his luck. Fortune, they say, favours the brave...and those blessed with charm, looks and an abundance of talent.

The "Useless" Ewan Facts Section

Here are some f*cking fantastic Ewan quotes (and some other insignificant ones) just for your enjoyment...
"Iggy's (Iggy Pop) got a great love for his p*nis. I can't say I feel quite the same way. I mean, I don't go around thinking, 'Hey, I've got a huge c*ck. Go on. Show me yours and let's compare sizes.' But at the same time, when people ask me if I'd be so keen to flash my willy if it was small, I always think, 'Well how the f*ck am I supposed to know?"'

"The director said, 'Just flash them a moonie.' So I did. I was mad when I was doing it. I ended up butt-naked in front of 400 extras with my trousers around my ankles, pulling my c*ck and going, 'F*ck off!' in a field somewhere south of London." - on his sudden desire to flash not only his butt but his p*nis on stage during the filming of Velvet Goldmine.

(still on the same subject and film....)
"When I was standing on stage drunk, pulling my p*nis, bending over and showing them my arsehole - that was an extraordinary situation to find myself in. I got such a buzz out of it. The first time I did a take, I turned around at the end and everyone - the crew, the extras - was literally speechless. It was a great moment. Nobody had anything to say."

(STILL on the same subject...)
"The concert stuff was where I really got my rocks off. I dived into the audience just after pulling everything out again. It's great to be getting paid well for something that would normally end you up in prison. Women are always being asked to get their kit off. So it's only fair that I get mine out. I'm making a feminist stance by shaking my willy around as much as possible."

"We're both straight guys, but it was absolutely the same as doing a love scene with an actress. It's actually more exciting being in a s*x scene with a man. It's something outside my normal experience. It's another example of an extreme situation - snogging a man." - on his gay s*x scene in Velvet Goldmine with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Christian Bale.

"Ewan had a s*x scene with the actress Kelly Macdonald in Trainspotting. Poor Kelly. She's a lovely girl, but at that time I just had a full-blown jealousy thing. If I saw her, my heart started breathing fast. I would get out of breath. I could hardly speak to her. It's very weird. But that's the only time. (With Velvet Goldmine) there he is, having a gay relationship with two different men. I didn't think I would ever relate to that. But actually I found it rather s*xy." - Eve Mavrakis, Ewan's wife.

"I was supposed to be shagging Christian Bale and it went on so long at one point I put my head down beside Christian, away from the camera, and whispered, 'I would have come by now, if this was real!' Then I looked over to see the camera crew packing up. The f*ckers didn't say 'cut' and we were still giving it our all!!" - Ewan, on becoming the victim of a joke while getting all steamy with Christian Bale on a King's Cross rooftop in the film, Velvet Goldmine.

"It (filming with all the special effects) was a slog - but every so often during the day I would have a Star Wars moment. I'd go, 'Whoop! F*ckin' Star Wars! Whoop!'"

"The first time Ewan and I had to do any lightsaber work, we started making the lightsaber noises and soon felt a bit silly" - Liam Neeson on providing some sound effects for the battles.

"I like swearing."

"After every shot, I'd get really angry, screaming, 'F*ck!' Eventually this guy drove up on a tractor and told me I had to leave. I walked back to the clubhouse all on my own in shame." - Ewan, telling the story of how when he was 14 yrs old, he was kicked off a golf course.

"People (during interviews) feel they have the right to ask you absolutely anything. They say, 'How do you show your romantic side to your wife?' And I reply, 'Absolutely none of your f*cking business.'"

"Showing my arse doesn't mean anything to me. I couldn't care less about it." - on his moonie in Rogue Trader.

"I'm looking for the right moment to drop my Jedi knickers and pull out my real lightsaber."

"I hate children. I'd raise money to have the little f*ckers put down!" - Alex Law (Shallow Grave)

"I've had meetings with diretors for films where they go, 'You know, this part isn't like who you played in Shallow Grave. Will that be OK?' Which my response, if only mentally is, 'F*ck off! What the f*ck are you talking about, you pr*ck? That's my job. It's what I do.' So I don't work with people who say that." - Ewan, on getting extremely impatient with those who have made the mistake of seeing him as straitjacketed in certain roles.

"I love it to death. I love watching to see what I've done. It's f*cking great!" - Ewan, on seeing himself perform on screen.

"He (Billy Connolly) likes getting his kit off and so do I! I've been naked in loads of things. I f*cking love it. I especially enjoyed being nude in the play, What the Butler Saw for the tweedy fraternity in Salisbury. People were dying in the aisles. Old ladies were having coronaries."

(Denis was saying) "'You're not angry enough. Swear! Say motherf*cker, c*nt, sh*t!' To begin with it was slightly embarrassing because he was my Uncle Denis. But then suddenly it didn't matter anymore. I was in a fury, spitting and screaming these swearwords and Denis was shouting, 'More, more!' Then the janitor burst in to see me screaming, 'Motherf*cker!'" - Ewan, on rehearsing for a role with his uncle.

"It was f*cking freezing cold." - Ewan, on the climate in Luxembourg.

In the playground at his school in Crieff, Ewan tried to be all things to all people. Because, he confessed, "Of an incredible desire to be loved and wanted - which is also a lot to do with acting - 'Please like me! Oh f*cking please, everybody like me!"

"No f*ckin' worries there, darlin'!" - Ewan's response to a reporter when she asked him if the cold conditions in Luxembourg caused a shrinkage problem.

"A f*ckin' nightmare!" - on Ewan's audition.

"I think the film's (Emma) alright. But I was so crap. I was terrible in it. I didn't believe a word I said. I just thought, 'Shut the f*ck up, Frank!'" - Ewan, on his portrayal of Frank Churchill in the film, Emma

"So much of Hollywood is just bullsh*t." - Ewan, on how he hates Hollywood and high budget films.

"Heroin is obviously not a good thing, as you can see from what happens to several characters in the film. But also, we're not saying these characters are evil b*st*rds, that only evil b*st*rds do drugs. I don't think this film will promote heroin use at all."

"Useless people are very stupid."

"I think it's f*cking great" - on how his role in The Pillow Book drew crowds to a Peter Greenaway film.

"I don't care enough about breaking into America to give a sh*t about it." - on not wanting to do big budget American films, even if it means popularity and higher pay.
