Ewan McGregor posts photos of his completely empty blizzard junket

Ewan McGregor arrived in New York ahead of the Stella Blizzard (or whatever we’re calling it) so he could promote Trainspotting 2 and Beauty and the Beast (he does voice work in the later). Ewan looked hot at the New York premiere of Beauty on Monday night, and then he got up bright and early on Tuesday morning for his junket. The problem? Stella had descended on New York and I guess none of the journalists came to Ewan’s junket. So he Instagrammed these hilarious photos:

T2 press day. NY. Where are the press though?

That’s so funny. It makes me feel like Ewan is a hardy Scotsman who will still show up for all of his work requirements even in the middle of a blizzard. Of course, it’s more than possible that he was staying in the same hotel as the junket so he didn’t even have to go outside.

Oh, but Ewan did go outside! He appeared on Seth Meyers’ show last night and he talked about being stood up at his junket and more.

    He’s looking kinda blue steel with that hat and scarf!

  3. astrid says:

    Too funny. Good for him for having a sense of humor

  4. Margo S. says:

    Love Ewan! That’s hilarious that no one showed up and he’s not afraid to let the world know haha!

    • LadyT says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if that cute photo and attitude manages to get plenty of positive press without the junket.

    Ewan needs to be everywhere. I really need him right now.

    LOL. Love a man with a sense of humor about himself, and I love his outfit in the top photo. Cannot wait for Fargo.

  8. Lucy says:

    He’s so funny! And he doesn’t just do voice work in BATB!! He appears in it as well 🙂

  9. Jayna says:

    I love him. Love his accent.

    Man, he’s aged really well – both in looks and personality. My friend and I were watching Star Wars prequel films a few days ago with the kids, and we were laughing about how young he looks as Obi Wan. Still had a little baby face to him and clearly so enthusiastic about the role he was playing.

    I’ve been watching Long Way Round, and it’s just made me love him as a human being. Team Ewan!

    • EmmGee says:

      Make sure you watch “Long Way Down” as well. The adventures of Ewan and Charlie are always a mood lifter!

    • A Fan says:

      Long Way Round was an awesome show! The two of them had great chemistry together.

    This guy has been a bae since the mid 90s. He has never disappointed me, not even Life Less Ordinary or Star Wars prequels. I wish him continued success. Can’t wait to see T2.

  13. Bridget says:

    I’m guessing some journalists are kicking themselves – could you imagine if you had been the only one to show up?

  14. my3cents says:

    Love him!
    He is aging so well- personality and looks..
    This is how it’s done (uhmm Depp) take cue.

  15. Betsy says:

    I so like this guy and I watched a great movie of his on Netflix (imagine how appalled I was when I realized I’d just sat through a Roman Polanski film. EW.)

    Yay Calgary! That’s where I grew up – now those are real winters!!
