Emily Mortimer's author father JOHN is an open-minded man - he was perfectly happy to watch his daughter having saucy on-screen sex with EWAN McGREGOR.

Emily stars with Ewan in Young Adam, now showing at France's CANNES FILM FESTIVAL, and had to suffer the embarrassment of her father seeing her covered in ketchup and mustard making love to the handsome Scot..

However, she puts her father's tolerance down to his previous work as a barrister.

She says, "Dad is totally unshockable. He has to watch a lot of pornographic films in order to defend freedom of speech."
