Ewan McGregor’s pocket- granny (?) is totally adorable (update)


I asked CB if I should cover these photos, and she gave me a “Hell Yes,” I think because Ewan McGregor looks hot here. And before you get all “Ewan hooked himself a cougar, because he really is that awesome” – that’s his mother!!! Look how TINY she is. Ewan is not a big guy, at all. He’s probably five foot nine or ten, tops. I bet his mum is under five feet tall. Crazy. Anyway, Ewan brought his mum to this event which was the preview exhibition for the Royal Academy of Arts, in Scotland. A plethora of B, C and D-List talent showed up and got their photos taken, and it was all rather sad… except for Ewan. Ewan can make any event a party.

UPDATE: Yes, it makes so much more sense if this is Ewan’s grandmother. And for those complaining about my “old as dirt” comment – take a joke, please. I didn’t say “I hate old people, every day.” I just correctly identified that this lovely pocket-granny was and is old as dirt.



Here’s Chloe Moretz and her wonk eye. Don’t care for the dress at all. Don’t care for the “Let me show you I WORK IT” over-posing either. It’s an art exhibit preview, not Fashion Week. She’s 14 years old going on 40.


I don’t trust the tag on this photo, so I’m just saying that I don’t know who this is, but he/she is wearing a really fug dress.


Remember Claire Forlani? She was supposed to be, like, the next Julia Roberts back in the day. Now she’s married to Dougray Scott and supposedly living a quiet life in Scotland and LA. The dress washes her out.

    Ewan is looking Hot…and in those jeans Nice..see how far is his left hand is in the pocket….or is it ?? :) )

  2. BW says:

    Ewan’s mum has great hair. Also, she may have shrunk with age. My dad is about 4 inches shorter at 80 than he was at 60.

  3. devilgirl says:

    So what if his mother is old? We will all get there one day. Hopefully.

  4. brin says:

    Awww…Ewan’s mum!
    But what’s with Ben & the black eye? Hmmm.

  5. RocketMerry says:

    I liked Claire Forlani in Hooligans, she was good and I thought she would do much more good work. But maybe she just preferred a quiet life and that’s great.
    I think not every actor has to go for a Hollywood career: you either have no soul or a really big shield to make it there, apparently.

  6. Roma says:

    As someone who was convinced to watch the complete Star Wars marathon with her boyfriend last weekend… I have to say I’ve been hot for Ewan all week. So yah for pictures!

  7. Jen34 says:

    Love, love, love Ewan McGregor. I think he’s even cooler than Johnny Depp, if that is possible. I read that he and his wife just added another daughter to their family. His mom IS adorable, and she looks taller than Bradley Cooper’s mom.

  8. Praise St. Angie! says:

    whew…Ewan looks SMOKING hot here.

    and I believe the old saying that you can tell a lot about a man from how he treats his mum.

    Looks like he’s a good one!

  9. RobN says:

    Actually his mom is 67 years old. Born is 1944. Please tell me that we’re not now considering 67 to be old as dirt.

  10. kitty says:

    I’m sure Ewan would appreciate hearing his mother referred to as old as dirt….nice, classy, respectful..

  11. Quest says:

    Hottttttttttttttttt! Absolutely

  12. LG says:

    That’s not his mum… That’s his Grandma!!
    He introduces her during the first episodes of his motorbike trip ‘the long way round’ w/Charlie boorman.

  13. Solveig says:

    I’m 1.70m tall, Ewan may be 1.72m, I met him in London and he wasn’t much taller than me.
    Her mother, well, she’s a hobbit.

  14. Ann says:

    That’s his grandmother! His mom was shown in Long Way Down and Long Way Round, as was his grandmother :)

  15. almond says:

    That Chloe girl is really upping the shallowness factor. I find her more and more obnoxious. So quick to let childhood behind…

  16. Mairead says:

    Squeeee at the lovely Ewan and his teeeny mum :D

    Oh Claire Forlani hasn’t gone away, people still insist on giving her work. Case in point is that “Camelot” muck. And she’s as tedious as hell in it.

    Apologies to her fans but the only two things I found her tolerable in was the V05 advert in the 90s and as Colin’s object of desire in “Press Gang” (the fact she barely spoke in either was probably to their benefit).

    And just to vent on Camelot for a sec. It’s only saving grace is that you can add your own Monty Python quotes, e.g. when they arrive and marvel at Camelot “It’s only a model”. Or in fight scenes shouting “RUN AWAY!!!” :lol: Otherwise it’s dreck and a waste of Joseph Fiennes and Sinéad Cusack’s time.

    What is more amazing is ewans mams bedazzeled stone washed denim jacket! Rock on.

    Man Claire Forlani was achingly beautiful in Meet Joe Black. She is one of my husbands “fany women”.

  18. Mindrew says:

    I was told by a friend who is a BIG FAN of Ewan’s that that woman is his aunt.

  19. LG says:

    OMG!!! That’s his GRANDMOTHER ppl!!
    Not his mom, not his aunt… HIS GRANDMA!!!

  20. Raised brow says:

    The fug dress on the short-haired lass reminds me of the fug dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the ’02 Oscars. You remember….Goth make-up, French braid along the front,…bra-less. *shudder* Considering all the bad press Gwynie received, you’d think this chick’s stylist would’ve known better.

  21. machiavelli says:

    Claire Forlani: I did like her in Meet Joe Black, but her stupidass pout was unbearable. And that squit. Just be natural. Then perhaps, she would have had a better career.

  22. WhiteNoise says:

    That’s not his mum, it’s his gran, Phillis Lawson. here’s a pic of his parents -


  23. Phillylady says:

    Oh. My. Lord. Ewan needs to stop. He is so freaking good and sexy, 100% my type. I watched Trainspotting last night and yeah, even when he looks like a smelly junky I so WOULD with the man. Amazing.

  24. Andie B says:

    I was thinking to myself that lady looks a lot older than 67, so I’m pleased to hear it’s his Grandma – aw how sweet, taking his Granny out….let me count the ways that I LOVE the gorgeous Ewan. He is piping hot, and will only get better with age.

  25. Flan says:

    Claire Forlani plays Igraine on Camelot now.

  26. Mary Jane says:

    Whilst I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the photos of Ewan and his mum (gosh, she’s just darling!), what the heck is it with dudes and the “o’ersized, ratty-ass lookin’ shoes” thing? Ewan’s doing it (as a mom, I would have made my boy change shoes) as are others… WTF???

  27. Jen34 says:

    Aw, it’s even sweeter that it’s his granny. Scottish dong is the best dong.

  28. Canuck says:

    She looks like the kind of little Scottish lady who has a “wee dram” every day for her health. The Scots rock.

  29. Ben says:

    Claire Forlani’s kind of great in Camelot.

  30. the original bellaluna says:

    Look at their eyes! See the family resemblance? LOVE Ewan! (Even if he’s short.)

  31. Eleonor says:

    @Phillylady: He is MY future husband. I only have to find a way to let him know it.

  32. Luci says:

    very cute that he goes with his grandmother :)

  33. MourningTheDeathofMusic says:

    The fact that he took his grandmother to an event as his plus one makes me find him even more attractive. And he looks absolutely handsome in these photos. I love when a man dresses like that.

  34. Ari says:

    I always thought there was a slight similarity of looks of Claire to Angelina Jolie for some reason. I liked her in Meet Joe Black as well although their chemistry was for shi*t lol…will have to check out Camelot and Ewan…there are no words – you are glorious!

  35. Unluvr says:

    Ewan’s wife Eve was at the same event looking lovely. Just watched Long Way Down and Ewan greets his grandmother (pictured here) and asks if she’s been drinking – she says yes, a bit of bubbly -LOL. For a gal in her 80′s she looks great. BTW, I got to hug Ewan in that same jacket just the week before at a film festival. He’s definitely at least 5 foot 9, probably 10 with the hair poofed up – LOL. And more gorgeous in person, even with whiskers and poofy hair. I’m happy he toned the hair down for a day out with his wife an nana.
