Ewan McGregor at the “August: Osage County” LA Premiere

Posted on December 17, 2013

Ewan looks less than perfect on the red carpet. We’re picking up the shattered pieces of our lives and trying to move on, darlings.


Ewan McGregor attends the “August: Osage County” Los Angeles Premiere held at Regal Cinemas in Los Angeles, California.

To be fair, he only looks slightly less than perfect. Not loving the hair at all and for once, we’re going to have to say no to his hipster boots. The man has damn fine taste in boots and loves to show them off with practically every outfit. Sometimes, he can make us forget our dislike of clunky boots paired with suits, but this is not one of those times. The getup is way too plain for those things. If he’s so in love with them, then pair them with some grey flannel or a tweed.

    He should take off those boots. He can leave them under my bed.

    • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume


  • He’s wearing black because he knows a part of me has died with that Shia LaBeouf hair.

    • JuliaInBlack

      My sentiments exactly, except in my mind it is Jax Teller hair.

    • decormaven

      I have been chortling ever since I scrolled down these pictures. What the heck is with that hair?

      • Mona_Visa

        Yes, I am delusional, but— I think it’s his continued audition for the Bond role. He’s showing of his perfect hairline and forehead.

        • WendyD

          That hair would look spectacular coming out of a shower, a quick tousle of a towel…

  • You know what? Clothes come OFF. I’d still do him 😉

  • annabelle archer

    You shut your whore mouths. He is sex. Always. Even when I can’t hear him talk. Per-fec-tion.

    • Damn right sistah! There’s a reason he’s #1 on my laminated list LOL

    • fashion4ever

      laughing hysterically!

  • ChaCha_70

    Those eyes. *sigh* Overlooking the hair and boots because he’s still so dreamy

    • Kathy

      Oh God yes! There’s just something about Ewan.

  • Laura Renee

    Is anyone else wondering who sucked out his soul?

    • ballerinawithagun

      I know, he has looked so sad lately.

      • Constant Reader

        He needs me to cheer him up. Obviously.

  • boweryboy

    That hair is serving up Lon Chaney wolfman realness.

  • “If our Ewen is home in time for the funeral, we’ll have to get him a suit”, “He can wear Dad’s second best, he’s being buried in his best”

  • kimmeister

    The hair is so awful, it’s upsetting. Please someone tell me it’s for a role and that he, of his own volition, would never choose to have his hair look that way.

    • filmcricket

      To be fair, his hair has never been his strong point. It always looks best when a magazine stylist has been playing with it.

  • Daisy Walker

    This hurts my soul. *sobs*

  • conniemd

    Oh Ewan a blue shirt or tie would bring out the lovely blue in your eyes.

  • decormaven

    In the first photo, the lighting and background almost give him the appearance of those creepy eye-following pictures that seem to look at you wherever you are standing in the room.

  • Rand Ortega

    More color please. A blue/grey tie or shirt would have killed this. He looks like a hot undertaker. A love interest for David on “Six Feet Under”.

    • Kathy

      *Snort* Hot undertaker!

    • MilaXX

      I’d like to think of him as one of David’s bad date cause in my book him and Keith are always OTP.

      • Rand Ortega

        LOVE LOVE LOVE David & Keith! & Anthony & Durrell!

  • tereliz

    Ditch the shoes, cut the hair, keep everything in between. Actually, the more I look at these pics, the more I’m coming around to the hair. But those shoes with a suit would never happen on my watch.

  • Chadge

    He has a little bit of crazy/wonky eye going on, but my God…. he makes it *work*.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I’d probably be more inclined to agree with you if you hadn’t provided close up shots of his face. I can’t concentrate on the clothes long enough to form an opinion on them.

  • Kathy

    Those eyes!

    • ChaCha_70

      Right? I wrote the same thing about him.

  • That tie is like an arrow pointing right at his package.

    • Chadge

      Right? It makes me wish he were 50 Shades of Gay.

    • Kathy

      I suspect that many of us here don’t need an arrow.

    • Mona_Visa

      I could handle with care.

  • e jerry powell

    All true, but I’d still knock him down on the red carpet and do him on the spot.

    • Carleenml

      well, duh.

    • MilaXX

      and that’s why you guys are my people!

  • MilaXX

    Sadly I have to agree. The boots are no bueno.

  • Carleenml

    No to that hair. No, no, no. How could Ewan make Ewan look bad? I didn’t think it could be done.

  • Carla_Charlton

    Yes, but that face, that face…

  • Mona_Visa

    It’s my lover, Ewan McGregor!… There’s some other text on the page… captions… can’t make any of it out… Ewan! He looks amazing.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    He knows this dog and pony show has nothing to do with him and he’s graciously ceding the limelight.

    • e jerry powell

      Julia Roberts?


      • Ann VerWiebe

        Yeah, I can’t explain the weird Gucci tux hybrid. Some people refuse to embrace fashion.

        • e jerry powell

          Or psychotherapy, but that’s a discussion for a different blog.

  • msdamselfly

    I like this ” weary, bookish, English professor” look

  • MW

    Boring outfit and awful hair, I’m disappointed.

  • Danielle

    That Brad Pitt hair is killing my soul.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    You guys, this is between Ewan and myself. He is issuing me a direct challenge, daring me to comment on his hair. He knows that if I say anything about it, he will say “At least I still have a hairline.” Ewan is a Mean Boy, BKs.

  • cocohall

    The village undertaker has gone to collect a body from a bog. Hence the funereal suit and muck boots. Does this in any way reflect his role in the film? And where is his customary eye twinkle? He usually gives at least a hint of “isn’t it fun to play dress up?” to the cameras. I assume stomach flu or other calamity has left him momentarily unable to mount a stylish effort. Get well soon, dear.

  • heuristicvalue

    I was going to say “he looks pretty perfect to me”…and then I scrolled down to the ankles.

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    oh no, he must be ill…there is no other excuse for his lack of fierceness…

  • alyce1213

    He looks so tentative, almost frightened, like he’s not sure where he is. No wonder, his suit doesn’t fit and he’s got ugly boots.
    No matter, I still love him madly.

  • Alexis Boucher

    This was me:

    “What’s so wrong with… ” *scrolls down, sees boots* “…oh. Ew.”

    And scene!

  • Joanne Abrams

    I don’t like the hair either.

  • Akemi

    I don’t care; I’d still do him. With the boots on.

  • LeelaST

    He’s giving me a Renfield from Dracula/creepy undertaker vibe in the first 2 shots – but the 3rd…swoon.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    There must be something off about the lighting in the first two, because he looks jaundiced. Also hate the Jax Teller hair like, a lot.

  • Glam Dixie

    If I walked into a room and found myself alone with this man, I would be frightened. He looks creepy as hell. He’s the quiet, loner neighbor that everyone thinks is nice but is really a serial killer.

  • Calinda_L

    Less than perfect or — OOOORRR!! — perhaps so far ahead of trends that this is what they’ll all be wearing in 2075. It has to be the latter, yes?

  • Imasewsure

    Ooh tweed would have been fab enough to have distracted us from that hideous hairdo too. Scissors please!!

  • quiltrx

    Oh, I has a big ol sad over this. I can’t handle Ewan actually looking creepy! Quick, back to that 007-ish spread!

  • pdquick

    Oh, come on! He didn’t even try! He looks like a theater usher.

  • marlie

    Oh, EWAN. This outfit makes me sad. I still love him like no other, but nothing about this outfit – from the hair to the fit to the shoes – is working for me.

  • amanda siegelson

    well, i love the hair. but the rest is a miss… sadness about that. happiness about his face and general ‘ewan-ess’.

  • Guest

    That hair would look spectacular coming out of the shower, a quick tousle of a towel…

    What were we talking about? Boots?

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Ewan, sweetie darling, get thee to a barber and get that hair trimmed properly-then auction off the clippings for charity so your fans can have a tiny piece of you for their very own-it’s a win-win.

  • xmixiex

    Sigh. Less than perfect, perhaps… hair is surely for a role, boots were just a rare lapse of judgement.
    he is perfection in human form.

  • Aidan B

    Hmm, not quite up to par. Maybe he’s still recovering from being knocked off his bike yesterday.

  • guest2visits

    Just disappointed in the shoes. Hate the way they curl up.

  • LaRomaBella

    His less than perfect is still a gazillion times better than many other actors’ perfect.
