I’ve recently noticed Ewan McGregor in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and Eye of the Beholder. What is his personal life like?

McGregor, 29, born in Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland, lives in London with his wife, Eve Mouvrakis, a French writer and production designer for movies, and their young daughter, Clara. McGregor plays guitars and drums, loves a wide variety of music, and has played in pipe bands in Scotland. He is known off-screen to be a steadfast Scottish gentleman. He chooses films of good quality with interesting people and good scripts, and not for strong political messages, he says.
