Ewan McGregor Moulin Rouge Star Wars

Ewan McGregor did not have a "career plan".

The Scottish actor - who has appeared in blockbuster movies including 'Moulin Rouge', 'Star Wars' and 'Angels & Demons' - admits he has never thought about how he would go about getting a job in Hollywood and is "lucky" things have gone well, but still misses his wife Eve and four daughters when he isn't with them.

He said: "The funny thing is that I've never had a career plan. In fact, I don't know what one is. It's just moved along at its own pace and luckily everything has fallen into place. The only downside with my work is that I'm away from the wife and kids for long periods of time, and that's hard. Really hard."

"Dear Heath Ledger, (he had) incredible scenes with Nicole. Because at one stage, Christian was very young, he was a younger guy, and then I was aware of Ewan but I didn't know if he could sing.

Kidman Fought With Director Over The Others Script Changes


Nicole Kidman The Others Alejandro Amenabar Edward Norton Forest Whitaker Ben Affleck Moulin Rouge Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman feared she'd made a huge mistake when she arrived in Spain to shoot creepy film The Others after realising the script she'd read had been overhauled.
The Australian actress admits she fought with director Alejandro Amenabar for two weeks in an effort to persuade him to rethink his script changes, which turned her character into a child-beating mother.
As part of a recent roundtable discussion chaired by trade paper The Hollywood Reporter and featuring Edward Norton, Forest Whitaker and Ben Affleck, the actress revealed, "I read the script and thought, 'Great.' Then I went and did Moulin Rouge.
"I went back and read the script, and there had been a rewrite on it, and I thought, 'This isn't the film I wanted to make.'
"I arrived in Spain and in this script, I am hitting a child - and I saw this film as being about a mother's love for her children, not her desire to kill the children.
"There was conflict for about two weeks between us (Kidman and Amenabar), and we ended up with a great experience together. (Later) he said, 'I am so glad you fought for that.'"
Kidman admits her ex-husband Tom Cruise helped her through the experience: "He'd be like, 'Nic, go in and voice your concerns. Trust me, it will be appreciated.'"

Cohen's Singing Dumped From Sweeney Todd


Sacha Baron Cohen Tim Burton Johnny Depp Jim Broadbent Moulin Rouge BAFTA

British funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen's singing has reportedly been cut from Tim Burton's forthcoming SWEENEY TODD movie, because it's so bad.
The BORAT and ALI G creator plays SIGNOR ADOLFO PIRELLI - the arch-rival of Johnny Depp's SWEENEY TODD, The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street - in the big screen version of the hit musical.
British newspaper The Sun reports Burton has given Cohen permission to rap his songs, because his singing voice isn't good enough.
A film insider says, "Pirelli is a notoriously demanding role with some difficult songs.
"Any professional singer would struggle. So Sacha has been told to go for a rap style. It will be a bit like Jim Broadbent's performance in Moulin Rouge!. That won him a BAFTA.
"Sacha is going to do a fantastic job but he couldn't cut it with the singing. His voice was too low."
