Ewan McGregor at the August: Osage County Premiere

Posted on September 10, 2013

This is, sadly, a little uneven. We expect better from Ewan.


Ewan McGregor attends the premiere of “August: Osage County” during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival

But he’s still Ewan, which means … le sigh. Cute. But is it us or does he look exhausted? Or like he needs a neck rub, maybe?

As for the outfit, we do love a straight boy who loves to gear it up on the accessories front. And in this case, it’s a good thing because the watch, the chunky shoes and that strappy thing, whatever it is, are the only things providing any real interest here.

Aside from his face, of course. He’s kinda pulling a Jolie here, sorry to say.

  • Ewan does indeed look exhausted. I have just the thing,…

    • kayleymaybe

      He could totally use a cuddle. Let’s start a line.

      • he can fall asleep with his head on my shoulder, anytime.

        • PeggyOC

          And I volunteer for the shoulder rubs. Or really, any kind of rubs.

          • Lucía Gavello

            YES. All kinds of rub. Every kind. Is it sausage Friday already?

    • Constant Reader

      He can take a nap at my house anytime.

  • jtabz

    Sad Ewan makes me sad.

  • leahpapa

    That last shot is pure fragrance ad.

    • leahpapa

      Pensif by Dior?

      • BarniClaw

        I read this as “penisf.” Oops!

  • Granny panties

    I’m good at neck rubs, just saying. He’s been one of my favorites since velvet gold mine….yum!

    • Heather


  • Danielle

    Let’s just unbutton that jacket the rest of the way and discard with it. A hot stone massage is just the perscription.

  • teensmom99

    Love the shoes.

  • marlie

    Not loving the clothes… everything looks too small. But he’s Ewan, and I love him, so he gets a pass this time.

    • NormDeplume720

      Especially the jacket. Looks like it got shrunk in the wash.

      But I likes to look at him anyway.

  • boweryboy

    He’s literally letting the shoes do all the heavy lifting…

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    I just see a sexy stylish man!

    • Clueless_Jock

      I think he looks great.
      Perfectly studied déshabillé in the Scottish manner.

  • Daisy Walker


  • mjude

    love him. i do love those shoes. he does look a bit tired though

    • Kate Andrews

      He probably rode his motorcycle all the way there.

      • Heather

        If I saw Ewan McGregor getting off a motorcycle, I’d spontaneously combust.

        • Kate Andrews

          You need to watch that documentary he did with Charley Boorman. Hotness on wheels.

  • Kate Andrews

    He is so sexy.

  • NOLA_gal


  • ballerinawithagun

    I love Ewan no matter what…Is the collar of the shirt supposed to be frayed, if so then shouldn’t the cuffs be a little frayed also? Love the lower half (get your mind out of the gutter, I mean the clothing and shows) which all look very Belstaff and appropriate for Ewan. But the upper half definitely needs some attention. I’m worried that he just received bad news and was forced to go on with the show.

  • i like the fit of his skinnies. the jacket and shirt look indeed a little sloppy.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Straight up, that looks like a woman’s jacket he grabbed and threw on when running out of his hotel room hungover AF. I was going to say he pulled a Pitt on this one. That wallet belt is hilarious.

    But I’m confused. Adam wearing a beautiful suit with a neck beard is a no go but this THIS look of sweaty, greasy, I’m about to puke with a neck beard is acceptable and hot?

    • marlie

      I don’t think Adam Levine was a no-go. He looked great (and I can’t stand the man). But I love, love LOVE Ewan here, and while I agree that he doesn’t look his best here, I’ll forgive a lot just because he’s Ewan. 🙂

      • Erica_Vuitton

        I had to look back at the post to get the right wording so let me clarify. Adam in a perfectly fitted suit attended a RC event at TIFF for his new movie and was told “he definitely should have shaved for the occasion”. Ewan looks like a sweaty mess in too small clothes with neck beard in full effect at the same festival for the premier of his new movie and it’s NBD. I don’t get it.

        • marlie

          Considering he was all done up in a perfectly fitted, more traditional suit, Adam’s grooming could have been a little tighter to go with the clothes, but ultimately, he still looked great.

          But TLo also said that Ewan’s look is “uneven” and that he’s “puling a Jolie,” so they’re not at all saying that he looks good here. Perhaps they (and the rest of the Bitter Kittens, including myself) are willing to be a bit more forgiving because he’s a fan favorite.

          • Erica_Vuitton

            You know Marlie that is a good point I can see that it’s a whole look vs unfinished details… for me the fact that he made the effort on the outfit excuses the neck beard but I can get what you’re saying too.

    • MilaXX

      Adam was voted in and given a fairly high score. 8.5/10 IIRC

    • alyce1213

      Ewan is dressed more casually than Adam and — I know it doesn’t seem fair — blonde hair makes a difference visually. It’s not as distinct or severe as black neck beard. (Also Ewan is much hotter.)

      • Erica_Vuitton

        Well that’s a matter of opinion… My boyfriend resembles Adam Levin so i think he’s waaaaaay hotter than Ewan.

        • This is exactly why you asked this LEGIT question. You think the hot one got unfairly criticized.

          • Erica_Vuitton

            Did I say Ewan wasn’t hot? No. I was curious as to why one man got that critique when the other didn’t. Again, it’s still a valid question as to why when two men attend the same event one “definitely” needed to shave and the other has zero mention of it. Either answer it or get off me, seriously.

          • Erica_Vuitton


        • alyce1213

          À chacun son goût.

      • filmcricket

        I was going to say – I think Ewan’s beard being so light makes a difference. Also, it’s possible that because he has a history of actually growing full beards which Levine (to my knowledge) does not, so Ewan looks like he’s legitimately growing in a beard while A.L. looks like he set his shaver to the “douche” setting? Possibly?

    • Did you actually read the posts? Adam got a high score and Ewan was described as tired, uneven, and uninteresting. The only thing we complimented was his face and his accessories.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        Of course I did which is why I’m asking a LEGIT question!! There was no mention of Ewan’s neck beard when there were several for Adam and I was asking why. JEEZE! You guys could be a touch nicer to your loyal readers.

        • Well sorry, but we’re seriously wondering how anyone could think Adam Levine didn’t get a rave from us or Ewan did, given what we wrote.

          And while we thank anyone for being a loyal reader, you’re a reader who has a history of getting really cranky with us when we say something mean about a star you like.

          • Erica_Vuitton

            My initial question was directed more towards the rest of the BKs (check the comments on Adam’s post, everyone is talking neck beard) vs you two.

          • Well that would have been something to bring up before you got testy with us and demanded an answer from us.

  • Rand Ortega

    He’s delicious. I’m trying to criticize the too small jacket, the whiskers but I just can’t. All I see is a gorgeous, tired guy who’s such a good sport he comes out to greet his fans & does the stupid pole dance regardless. Those shoes are giving me LIFE.

  • What are you talking about? He looks like sex on a stick.

  • ChaCha_70

    Perfect timing for an additional Ewan fix. I’m just watching his documentary series, Long Way Round, where he and his buddy ride BMW motorcycles across the world. It’s a fascinating documentary accentuated by the adorable and charming, Ewan. He’s truly dreamy even all dirty and grimy.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Charlie Hunnam fans- y’all can keep him. THIS is how I like shaggy fair hair and scruff. 🙂

    But the outfit- oh honey, no.

  • ringthing

    Gorgeous for sure, but also exhausted and maybe hungover? Easily forgiven.

  • MilaXX

    Poor baby, he does look a little tired. He either needs to unbutton or lose that jacket. It’s a bit too tight and looks awkward.

  • nannypoo

    I can see that his hair is bothering him. It’s bothering me, too.

  • msdamselfly

    I cant agree. I think the suit shows some offbeat style and I like the shirt. Also, he has a nice haircut.

  • SewingSiren

    I love the shoes. But what on earth is he doing in the straddle pose?

    • Trickytrisha

      It looks like he’s trying to rearrange the dangly bits without anyone noticing.

  • alinana

    We need to get him out of those clothes and..ummm…find something…ahhhhh….that fits a bit…errrr….what was I saying?

  • Miss WKS

    Next time I’m on the red carpet I am TOTALLY adopting that stance….

  • Jacquelyn

    He looks much older and more ragged than he should.

  • JP

    This is kind of an I Tried To Do Hipster But My Clothes Don’t Fit look. But it’s still Ewan, as you say.

  • Linda LaPaz

    He sure does give good face though.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Since he certainly looks exhausted I’ll give him a pass this time. He is Ewan, after all.

  • alyce1213

    The jacket’s too sma . . . Oh hell, I don’t care. He can do no wrong.

  • majorbedhead

    Let me help you out of that jacket, love. It’s too tight. And the shirt…take it off so I can iron it for you. There. That’s better.

  • elemspbee

    that jacket’s too small. i would have loved for this outfit to work. I love everything south of his waist.

  • GoAwayKardash

    Love you guys but must disagree. He looks cool and hip from head to toe.

    • veriance

      not with that too tight/small jacket and wtf is with the collar?

  • Denise Alden

    He can pull my Jolie all day.

  • filmcricket

    This is the second post in recent weeks that has got They Might Be Giants’ “Ana Ng” in my head (the first was that Prada campaign) thanks to clodhopper shoes. Now that I’ve divested myself of that obscure reference, I’ll say: Ewan, you coulda done better. He’s jet-lagged or hungover or both.

    • Rand Ortega

      “I don’t want the world. I just want your half.” 1 of greatest lyrics in a song. Ever.

  • Imasewsure

    Le sigh… le mew… le rawh rawh rawh… but maybe a touch too much hipster?

  • random_poster

    Go home*, Ewan. You’re drunk!

    *My home, please.

  • madscntst

    What’s that? Neck rub? Me, me, me! I can do it!

  • Lilak

    OK .. that’s it … I think I’ve had enough of the little Chips & Twigs jackets

  • conniemd

    The outfit is a bit schizophrenic. The black suit and white dress shirt say “formal” and the lack of a tie and clunky shoes say “casual”. Put a patterned or bright colored shirt on and it would change the whole look.

  • Janet B

    Love his shoes.

  • Pennymac

    He looks like he doesn’t feel well. Come on, Ewan, lets get you into my, er, your bed.

  • Cheryl

    I like it, but I’ve got to say, more goofy TIFF posing.

  • I can’t help but picture Ewan saying “Woah is my hair out?” in the voice of Hades from Hercules (especially in the last two pictures, haha!)

  • kimmeister

    Is it weird that I want to dye his eyebrows slightly darker?

  • LaSylphide

    Love the shoes and the blue eyes. That’s about all.

  • MaggieMae

    I’m jealous he is rocking a younger man’s look. I have my quibbles, but really, he looks comfortable in that “these are my real clothes” way.

  • Totally letting that face do all the work. Because it can.

  • julnyes

    A slightly larger jacket and I would be perfectly satisfied with this look. Admittedly I do give him more leeway because, ya know, he is Ewan McGregor.

  • TigerLaverada

    He obviously doesn’t feel well and needs me to nurse him back to health. It might take quite a while, I’m thinking.

  • formerlyAnon

    I do wish handsome men either shaved or wore well-trimmed beards these days. And that the perma-scruff was an occasional [and thus much higher impact] aberration.

  • Jaime

    I don’t care. It’s Ewan and I just want to bite him.

  • cowper

    “Ladies’ man, man’s man, man about town.”

  • bellafigura1

    Haha, his feet look gigantic and endearing and out of control, like a 13 year-old boy’s. Anything he does makes me want to have sex with him.

  • jjtxgrrl

    These comments are awesome.
    ….kinda reminds me of recent Louis CK HBO standup talking about meeting Ewan and he wanted to F him right off.

    …And he’s straight. Hehe.

    I say he can wear whatever tiny jacket he wants! 🙂

    • calbear97

      Oh thanks for posting that, I just had to YouTube it, and the response on Conan. So awesome!

  • jjtxgrrl

    Sigh. So sexy.

    Jacket is a tad tiny though.

  • dancho

    He’s cute and the long hair suits him. But that tattered, banded collar is distracting. And no pocket square if you’re doing to unbutton so much on the shirt.

  • quiltrx

    Skinny pants can be too skinny. But his hair in that first shot is giving me life…and, well, he’s Ewan. He’s allowed to phone it in once in a while, but we need to be wowed next time.

  • Cate

    I hardly even noticed he was wearing clothes here. I was just marveling over the fact that “Moulin Rouge!” was 12 years ago and he’s aged only the tiniest smidge.

  • queen b*tch

    That last picture…. hhhhhuuuuurrrrrrggggmmmmffffffgggghhhhhhh

  • guest2visits

    He looks like he’s somewhere else in his head…but I love the whole outfit. Not too many guys can carry this off.

  • amanda lynn

    this might be a strange comment, but he is dressed appropriately for the movie/role he’s playing. he matches ‘bill’ well here.
