Ewan McGregor takes the cover of Menswear magazine’s January 2012 issue.
Here is what the 40-year-old Haywire actor 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.”
