Ewan McGregor in a flowery, romantic GQ Style pictorial: would you hit it?

Ewan McGregor covers the newest issue of GQ Men’s Style or GQ Style or whatever this is. I can’t say I’m in love with the cover image, but I do like the rest of the pictorial. I think we’re supposed to look at Ewan with those flowers as some kind of romantic hero, a lovely lad who will wait patiently and bring you flowers and be respectful. But the way Ewan is inappropriately touching and stroking the petals of the flowers IN EVERY PHOTO is making me think dirty thoughts. Ewan knows how to rile a lady up, doesn’t he? This is not a respectful, patient gentleman. This is a dude who will bang you senseless in a gazebo. Surrounded by innocent flower! Flowers that think you’re kind of slutty.

Okay, now I have to show you the trailer for Ewan’s newest movie called The Impossible. It comes out in America in limited release in December, possibly so it could be an awards contender. I went into watching this trailer knowing only that it was about a family vacationing in Asia in 2004 when the tsunami struck. I ended up balls-out crying within one minute of the trailer. So… just prepare yourselves. Get a tissue ready. The film also stars Naomi Watts and three extraordinary-looking young actors. OMG.

*hands everyone a tissue* I TOLD YOU.

    I like most of the pics, but his nose looks kind of fake in the cover – it hardly looks like him, to me.

  2. dooliloo says:

    The GQ cover is weird… But also yes I’m used to see him bearing facial hair and a bit scruffy.

    I met him at San Sebastian film festival last September, he’s so funny and nice and oh yes gorgeous! Always had a thing for him since Big Fish… Aye give me that Scot AnytimeMorningNoonEvening!

    P.S : The Impossible is very poignant, recommended :-)

    I hate how trailers make you feel like you’ve watched the entire movie already.

  4. Prettytarheelfan says:

    Well balls. Good thing I am working fom home. Boohooing lke a 2yr old is not my best look.

  5. Anastasia says:

    Yeah, now I know the whole damn movie. Pass.

  6. megs283 says:

    First. Daaaaaaaaamn. You are SO right about those flowers!

    People are complaining that the movie focuses on a couple of white people instead of people who lived there. I don’t know how I feel. To be frank – supposedly this is a true story – and I think it’s an interesting (albeit obviously HORRIFYING) one. I think it’s an amazing story and the ethnicity of the characters is secondary…

    (Speaking of famous attractive people during the tsunami – remember Petra Nemcova’s story? My God…)

    • Elle says:

      The thing is…it’s a Spanish produced film that focuses on a SPANISH couple. So it’s a country making a movie about a couple that experienced this that hails from their country. I do get a Spanish writer wanting to tell the story of a Spanish couple.

      But it’s important for people to understand that the people who were vacationing there when this tragedy hit DID have a “home” to come home to whereas the people who lived there were left with nothing. There story didn’t “end” when they went home. They still had to live in the devastation. It’s uncomfortable for sure.

  7. Astrid says:

    OMG, I too started crying….are we PMSing?

  8. effy says:

    That pic with a flower in his mouth is soo hot!

  9. The Wizz says:

    Having known a few people who died in that thing makes me cry over it even more…

  10. LadyMTL says:

    Yeah, I’m at work right now so I am definitely not going to watch that trailer. I’ll content myself with the images of Ewan fondling those flowers instead, mmm.

  11. Starlight says:

    he can’t do wrong. He is Obi-wan. Remember?

  12. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    Have to go with the writer on this one…..Gives me the willies, kind of like a bored nasty boy waiting for his next victem to show up shredding thos poor innocent roses while he is waiting….LOL
    and I usually like him….Not this one…Id have to cross the street if I saw him standing up the block….Ugh !

  13. mytbean says:

    pfft… romantic lovely lad my arse. Those pics are more about tearing up my rose bushes! He is sex.

  14. Nanz says:

    Love Ewan and the pictorial. The trailer made me teary…and uncomfortable. Focusing on an attractive, white family during a “true story” about an Asian tragedy makes me uneasy. Where are all the Asian people? Oh yeah, comforting the white lady. What’s the kid doing? Oh, being the white savior. I’m in a bad mood this a.m., so forgive me if I’m taking myself or this movie too seriously.

    Ps I liked the trailer anyway.

    • bettyrose says:

      That was my response exactly. I’m glad someone else felt this way. I’m torn now because it’s hard to imagine sitting through an entire movie’s worth of how uncomfortable the trailer made me, but it’s so great to hear Ewan’s accent.

      • Elle says:

        No, you aren’t wrong at all. I feel uncomfortable with it too.

        I think it’s a tough situation. It is, if I understand, a Spanish film and the couple in question was a Spanish couple. So I do understand the desire for the Spanish producers to tell the story of the Spanish family.

        That said, it reinforces an all too familiar trend of only seeing these things through the perspective of those who were “visiting” when this tragedy occurred and not the people who actually live there.

        There is zero doubt that anyone who was present when the tsunami hit experienced harrowing pain and fear. But the people who were vacationing had a HOME to come home to. The people who LIVED there had literally nothing left. That was their home.

        It is a different perspective and an important one to remember.

  15. Carolyn says:

    I’d even take Ewan as Obi Wan. I want to see his new movie. Not watching the trailer..want to see it with fresh eyes.

  16. NYC_girl says:

    Oh crap. I love them both, but I am sitting here crying now, especially with what has been going on here the last few days.

  17. Lizzie K says:

    Love Ewan, but this is not a good look for him, IMHO.

  18. Eleonor says:

    I want him to be the next Bond!

  19. j.eyre says:

    What I would do to this man would make a bagpipe jealous.

  20. bettyrose says:

    “This is a dude who will bang you senseless in a gazebo. Surrounded by innocent flower! Flowers that think you’re kind of slutty.” Yep! Sign me up for this fantasy.

  21. Elle says:

    I’ve always thought Ewan McGregor is sexy. No doubt about it. He’s the best kind of sexy because it’s not in an overly obvious way.

    Maybe I’m crazy but I feel like the older I get the more I’m attracted to both men who excude sexuality through their extreme talent and their personality.

    I’m a straight woman but I feel the same way when I’m admiring women.

    I’m so over the overtly “trying too hard” pouty posed sexy image of women out there. As if that’s the only way to be sexual. Instead, I look at some of these female actresses who are just so incredibly talented and real and flawed and that is so stunning to me. There is so much more mystery there.

    Ewan is an incredibly talented actor and one of those actors that I legit think can do anything. He’s an old fashioned song and dance man. (As much as I thought Kidman was great in Moulin Rouge…Ewan was the real musical talent of the film.) He can do the sci-fi genre stuff and give it soul–he was clearly the best thing about the Star Wars prequels. He can do extreme drama. He can do anything.

  22. Kattttt says:

    I have spent half of my life dreaming of hitting it with Ewan McGregor and these pictures have done nothing to change my mind. Sigh, I love him. Forever dong.

  23. I Choose Me says:

    *Watches trailer* I will not cry. I will not cry. Dammit!

  24. yoyo says:

    I used to like Ewan a lot, as an actor, as a humanitarian too BUT he’s a polansky apologist so now he’s on my sh*t list until he sees the light… if he ever does. It bothers me even more because he has daughters, how can you try and justify Polansky’s perversions?! smh

    PS for those interested there’s an english documentary on youtube about white and asian families with footage of the disaster, it’s heart breaking but also incredibly uplifting because of the way people came together. But be warned this is NOT hollywood, it’s real life so people really died and not all families found each other afterwards. The survivors tell their stories, some have happy endings others very bitter sweet and some are just tragic.

  25. ssa says:

    so much, so hard, and for so long

  26. midnightmoon says:

    that hair is ATROCIOUS!!! w. t. F?!?!? buzz cut wld be better, and i’m a long blond ponytail girl. PLEASE tell me this is not the new trend for boys. i was about to beg for mercy after the Bieber cut became a thing, but the Roadkill has got to GO!!!

  27. TQB says:

    I’m sorry, do you see what he’s DOING to those flowers in the three middle pictures?? They have NO right to judge me slutty. Whoreblossoms.

  28. Gossiper says:

    Check Ewan out in his tv documentaries “The Long Way ‘Round” and “The Long Way Down”. He takes a motorcycle trip with his best friend and is DROOL-WORTHY

    • EmmGee says:

      Loved the documentaries so much that we purchased DVDs of both adventures. While hubs dreams of riding a bike ’round the world, my thoughts lean more toward riding Ewan ’round the world!! He just has that special Scottish hotness about him……

  29. EscapedConvent says:

    Sigh…..Ewan. Did anyone see The Pillow Book? The woman character was, I thought, a harpy, but Ewan was heart-wrenching.

    Yes, may I please get on the list of ladies who would? I love his swagger & his humor.

  30. citygirlsf says:

    Oh, my goodness…I would hit it repeatedly, and with much gusto.

  31. Susan says:

    I love Ewan too, but these pics do nothing for me as a woman. If i was a gay man however…

  32. citygirlsf says:

    Oh, no…crying at my desk now!

  33. Becca says:

    OMG bawling. More bawling. I cannot wait to see this beautiful movie.

  34. runswithscissors says:

    i know a family this happened to. she’s sri lankan, he’s canadian, they have two kids who go to school with mine. Unfortunately, it’s still really hard to like her after understanding what happened to them. She’s difficult for so many other reasons, manic, and it’s hard to see what’s happening to their family because of it. It’s like she’s got this need and just drags the rest of her family around with her because of it and the rest of them just look haunted. She looks haunted. They’re moving to somewhere in the middle east soon to live for a few years…. People are complicated.

  35. Tiffany says:

    Who is signing that version of ‘One’ in the trailer, it was pretty haunting.

  36. Ally8 says:

    It’s an interesting pictorial. Reminds me a bit of The Smiths 80s-romantics era.

    Still, this kind of clotheshorse nonsense in magazines seems beneath McGregor. Dude had been in interesting major movies and art films for 20 years, he doesn’t need the cheap publicity.

  37. Gray says:

    Every day, every way, all day, all night. *Sigh*

  38. ichsi says:

    glrraaaghhrrr… *drooling* of course i’d hit that! Gorgeousness!

  39. A Fan says:

    I prefer him the way he is in ‘Long Way Around’…this is a little too metrosexual for my taste.
