Ewan McGregor Had Brief Cancer Scare

Ewan McGregor Had Brief Cancer Scare

Ewan McGregor is “fine” after having several cancerous moles removed from just below his right eye, reports the BBC.

“I went to see a specialist who thought they were better to be removed, and indeed he was correct,” Ewan, 37, said. “[The surgery was] not that big of a deal.”

When asked if he found the experience frightening he said, sarcastically: “It was great fun having skin cancer, it was great, I really enjoyed it.”

Mr. McGregor can next be seen in Deception, which opens in theaters this Friday, April 25.

    Did some idiot here actually take him literally?!?!? How does that person make it through the day, tie their shoes, cross the street? LOL!!!

    Ewan is terrific. He was very kind to answer the questions first, and then some fool reporter took it too far.

    I’m glad he’s got a movie coming out. He’s a cool guy.
