Ewan McGregor Calls Autograph Hunters 'Parasitical Lowlifes'
Here is what the 43-year-old actor, currently appearing on Broadway in the play The Real Thing, had to share with the mag:
On his Star Wars fans: “I don’t have any experience with them. I’ve never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the f–kers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their f–king picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They’re not fans—they’re parasitical lowlifes and f–king wankers.”
On his opinion of Phantom Menace: “I watched it once, at the premiere, so I’m not in a good position to judge. They had a tall order, the three films I did. The fans waited so long and wanted to feel like they did when they watched the first film, but they were grown-ups by that time. I don’t mind the criticism. I’ve heard it to my face.”
On whether he’s done a film just for money: “There have been films I’ve done where I’ve been very happy to have reached my last day on set, but not many. And I’ve never started a film with anything other than enthusiasm.”
