This is a bit off-topic, but there’s a brand new interview with Charley at TheAge.com.au. 😉
I added some new pictures from the launch of the race to Dakar to the gallery:
MATCH POINT co-stars SCARLETT JOHANSSON and JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS found they had an odd thing in common on the set of the new WOODY ALLEN film – they’ve both suffered for their art kissing EWAN McGREGOR.The Irish actor locked lips with the Scottish hunk on the set of VELVET GOLDMINE and Johansson shared a passionate kiss with him in THE ISLAND – and both admit smooching with McGregor can be a rough job.Johansson reveals, “I didn’t think kissing Ewan was that bad but he did have to shave in the middle of the scene. He’d shave that morning and that afternoon and three minutes before the scene… That man has some relentless beard on him.”Rhys Meyers agrees: “It was really appalling kissing him in Velvet Goldmine because I got a serious stubble rash from Ewan… and he smokes like a trooper, so it was pretty disgusting.”The Irishman admits he had much more fun smooching with pretty Johansson, adding, “Scarlett’s got a very soft, sweet, fleshy mouth and it was much better.” But the BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM star wasn’t always the most tender kisser, according to his co-star: “In the middle of one scene I looked at him and said, `Do you taste blood by any chance?’ and I looked down and Jonathan had split my lip with his tooth.”He sent flowers the next day as an apology which was very sweet.” Source: contactmusic.comIt sounds like gossip to me… Nothing but lies… I doubt they “suffered” from kissing Ewan. And if they did, that would be too unpolite to tell. I’m sure it was taken out of context. After all, it isn’t the first time that contactmusic.com does that kind of thing.

Ewan attended a new event today: the launch of the race to Dakar, Senegal, in London. Charley Boorman and the Race to Dakar team unveiled their BMW F650 GS Dakar race bikes at the official team launch today in central London. It’s only a month before Charley and his Race to Dakar team-mates of Simon Pavey and Matt Hall will face the toughest challenge of their lives. The three-rider team will contest the 16-day 2006 Dakar Rally and ride over 8,500 km encompassing some of the most gruelling off-road terrain imaginable. We wish them good luck in this new adventure! PS: I’m still behind with reading and answering my emails, because, like I said before, it hasn’t been working for more than a week. But I’d like to thank everyone who sent me nice emails or Ewan contributions.
Hey Guys!!! I’m sooooo sorry that the media section isn’t up yet. I’ve been in finals the last couple of days, but don’t think I’ve forgotten about it. I’ll be completely done with finals on Tuesday. So I’ll work on finishing the media section on Wednesday. The new and improved Media download should be up by Friday. 😉
This will be my last post here at EwanMcGregor.net. Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t really found the time to update this site during the last couple of months, so I decided to make it official and leave the staff. I know that Mariana and Mary will take perfect care of the site, I have absolutely no worries there. Just wanted to let you know that I have enjoyed the year working on this site! Ewan still is one of my favourite actors and I will continue following his career, but my time will be dedicated to my studies and my other sites (shameless plug: Laura-Linney.com & Cate-Blanchett.org).But before I’m off, I have somthing for you I’ve been meaning to upload for a while now. Enjoy!- Big Fish DVD captures- Big Fish DVD Making Of captures- Down With Love promo shoot HQs- replaced: Shoot #17 HQs- Shoot #63 HQs- Shoot #64 HQs
My Ewan email address is not working, so if you emailed me during the last week, I haven’t read your email. I was able to send emails, but not to receive. I’ll let you know when it’s fixed.
Patsy informed us that she was watching Jonathan Ross and they showed a bit of Ewan’s part in “Scenes of a Sexual Nature”. Unfortunately, it doesn’t air over here! It’s a British show. However, these are exciting news! If you saw the clip too, share your thoughts with us! 🙂
This is a little off-topic: If there’s any kind fan from Italy who can be nice enough to contact me to see to help me find an Italian mag, I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.Thanks girls, but it’s not necessary anymore! The lovely Moon, webmistress of Orlando Bloom Web World, an Italian Orlando fansite, sent me the scans! 🙂
