It's no secret that Ewan McGregor likes to get naked in (MOST of) his films. Or that he's played some great roles in significant gay-themed films (most recently, Beginners and I Love You Phillip Morris). In fact, we featured him on the March cover of Out last year in a photo smeared with dirt, and he explained his appeal to both sexes.
Now, another straight dude seems to be as swayed by McGregor's charisma and great looks. In a recent standup performance, funny guy Louis CK--who is NOT gay but has his own funny penchant for homoerotic moments in his FX TV show, Louis and while on stage--has professed his own lust for McGregor.
In a recent standup performance, Louis CK talks about meeting McGregor at an awards show and being "blown away" by how "beautiful" the actor is. Canadian TV host George Stroumboulopoulos played a clip of CK's monologue for McGregor, who was sporting some amazingly coiffed hair, and admitted through a charmin grin that he was "flattered" by it, and said, "I like it very much that he thinks that way. It's nice."
McGregor also said he thinks it would be funny if he snuck up on CK from behind and tapped him on the shoulder "just to see how serious he is."
