Hollywood actor Ewan McGregor has been snubbed by his screenwriter wife - she wants heart-throb Johnny Depp to star in her new movie.

EVE MAVRAKIS would rather the Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL star features as a detective in dark thriller FOR LOVE OF ART - rather than recommend her own husband.

BIG FISH star Ewan, 32, admits, "She said, 'Do you know who I'd really like to play the lead part? Johnny Depp.'

"So I said, 'Thank you very much - that's nice.'"
