Ewan McGregor Talks Fatherhood, Big Budget Movies, & His New Projects with 'Esquire'

Ewan McGregor looks so suave on the cover of Esquire magazine’s October 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On being away from his family while working: “I’m not in a unique position in being a father who travels for his work. I could be an oil-rig worker. There’s lots of people who are not home on a Monday-to-Friday regular basis.”

On big budget movies: “Very big studio pictures are tedious to make. If you’ve got eighty people in your crew, as opposed to two or three, suddenly you’re with all these massive f*cking egos walking around. All that takes up time and money, which is why they take five months to shoot. Everyone’s quite happy if you come home having done a third of a scene. I can’t stand it. As a Scottish working man, I’m like, ‘F*cking get on with it.’”

On directing & starring in American Pastoral: “I spent a whole day with the script, just turning the pages slowly and thinking, Okay, can I see myself playing this scene and having done the prep for it and then doing the postproduction for it? Can I do it? Can I do it? Can I do it? I came to the conclusion that yes, I should definitely give it a go. I would always be regretful if I didn’t.”

Ewan McGregor Visits Northern Iraq with UNICEF: Children Are 'Exposed to Unimaginable Horrors'

UNICEF Ambassador Ewan McGregor holds hand with a young child while on a trip to Northern Iraq, which took place last week.

Conflict across Syria and Iraq has resulted in children being killed, injured, separated from families, and more as the situations intensify.

“Children uprooted by conflict can find themselves alone, without family and in grave danger. No child should be alone. Many of the children I’ve met in Iraq have been forced to flee their homes, risking their lives on dangerous journeys and have been exposed to unimaginable horrors,” Ewan said in a statement. “One girl I met called Mirna told me how her family slept in a disused, half-constructed shopping mall for over a year. The community donated food, clothes and supplies to her family and really came together to welcome displaced people. This act of humanity should be replicated everywhere, especially on our own doorsteps. It’s up to us to tell our friends, our neighbors and our governments that refugees are welcome.”

Ewan McGregor Set to Star in 'Fargo' Season Three

The third season, which will take place closer to present day than the first two installments, follows the totally opposite brothers. Emmit is the handsome and successful “Parking Lot King” of Minnesota, who sees himself as an American success story. Ray, on the other hand, is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer who peaked in high school and blames Emmit for his misfortunes.

Fargo is tentatively scheduled to begin production later this year and premiere in 2017.

Ewan McGregor Reveals He Was in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Ewan McGregor just confirmed that he did have a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens while making an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Thursday (April 7).

The 45-year-old actor, who played a young Obi-Wan Kenobi in early Star Wars films, said that his role was pretty small and he doesn’t even remember where he spoke!

“Well hardly, my voice was in it for a second! I recorded a little line in it,” he explained. “I don’t remember where I speak, I have no idea!”

While, Ewan‘s full line was “Rey… these are your first steps,” he explained that Alec Guinness was the one who said “Rey.”

He also added that the line was a very last minute addition, “J.J. Abrams emailed me out of the blue…It was about two weeks before the film was released, so it was obviously sort of last minute.”
