A Scottish actor who is known for picking acting roles beyond the "Hollywood" norm. Quite like Johnny Depp, Shia LeBeouf, Kevin Bacon, etc.

Unknown to some people, has been in many movies prior to Star Wars and Moulin Rouge. See Trainspotting, Velvet Goldmine, Shallow Grave, Lipstick on Your Collar, The Pillow Book, etc.

His penis plays a starring role in more of his movies than you know.
Women only like Ewan McGregor because he was "hot" in Moulin Rouge. Had you known that he was singing in Velvet Goldmine, you would already had been aware of such wonderfulness.

A euphamism for the kind of actor who can only play themselves, and who is total shite when they try to actually play a character.

Based on the undoubted ability of Ewan to play a Scottish smackhead and nothing else.
"Yessh, I'm Sean Connery, er I mean Captain Marko Ramiush, Rushian Shubmarine Commanderr!"

Me: "Fuck me, Connery is a total Ewan McGregor!"
Christian Slater: "Yeah, so am I..."
