Scottish actor Ewan McGregor revealed that fed up with long shoots, he was now turning to cyber sex to keep things hot and heavy between him and his wife.
The Moulin Rouge! star, who is currently on location in New York filming a new movie, revealed to fans that he was planning to solve the problem of facing lonely nights by having cyber sex with his wife, Eve, via a webcam.
“You have to be selfish because of the unsociable hours and intensity of the work. Your kids aren’t there and your wife isn’t there. This time we have sorted out some video conferencing, having dinner together with your laptops either side of the Atlantic. Nice idea. The sexual possibilities are endless,” Hollywoodrag.com quoted him, as saying.
The actor, while promoting his newest movie Miss Potter, a biopic of famed children’s writer Beatrix Potter, also admitted that he wanted to have an animated penis in the film.
The actor, who stars as the love interest of Beatrix Potter, played by Renee Zellweger, said that though movie bosses liked the idea, they had nevertheless shot it down.
“I did try to get it in the film. They said, ‘Its nice Ewan, but we don’t think it quite works with this movie,’” he said.
McGregor also revealed that bosses had tried animating his penis and putting Peter Rabbit’s face on it, but in the end had given up the idea because it was not “tasteful enough”.
“They tried animating it: putting Peter Rabbit’s face on it and making it speak to Beatrix, but they didn’t think it was tasteful enough in the end,” he said.
