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.

Ewan is such a stand-up guy and if you knew the slighest thing about him you’d know he’s completely taking the piss out of the question.

Glad to hear he’s alright.

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.

What else is he going to say if someone asks him how it was having cancer?!

I’m glad it’s well over for him.

An assinine question gets an well deserved assinine response.

He lived. Does this mean I have to see his ***** in 8,000 more films? This guy is the world’s most well-paid flasher. Yes, we get it, it’s chunky.

Some reporters/journalist are really cold-heartless-sensation-digger-ignorant-care-a-***-ruthless hyena!

My best wishes for You, Ewan! I hope you can work together again with Jude. That would be lovely!

Ewan your the best, so glad your ok. He can act, has a sense of humor and rides motor bikes, the man does it all.

Why do some people ask such stupid questions in the first place? Of course he was frightened.
