Ewan McGregor Covers 'Menswear' Magazine January 2012

Ewan McGregor takes the cover of Menswear magazine’s January 2012 issue.

Here is what the 40-year-old Haywire actor (in a Levi’s jacket) had to share with the mag:

On giving up drinking over a decade ago: “It was effortless, because it was the only thing I was prepared to give up. I wasn’t prepared to give up my career or my child – I wasn’t about to lose my children…11 years. Easy-peasy.”

On his taste in films: “I hate scripts that read like other movies….That’s why I’ve never really nailed the Hollywood ‘hard man’ role, because I don’t really believe it. I don’t know guys who have great exit lines every time they leave the room.”

On keeping his kids out of the spotlight: “I’ve tried very hard to keep them out of the way, because it’s nothing to do with anybody, and it’s not fair on them. We have a group of friends where some are in the business, some are not in the business – and all walks of the business: a lawyer, a writer, a director we know – and their kids and our kids are all friends. It’s not some kind of showbiz party around our house on the weekends. It’s far from it. It’s like real life.”

Also pictured inside: Ewan visiting the SiriusXM Studios on Thursday (January 19) in New York City.
