About Ewan McGregor's Height

Ewan McGregor used to be listed as 5'10½" tall by StarWars.com.

After taking a careful look at Mr. McGregor and comparing his height to that of people like Johnny Depp (5'9"), George Clooney (5'10"), and Colin Farrell (5'10"), we think that the StarWars.com height listing might have been with Ewan in shoes.

Here are some of Ewan McGregor's quotes spotted.

On parenting rules.

The thing about parenting rules is there aren't any. That's what makes it so difficult.

Aspiration to become an actor.

A lot of parents tell their children that if they want to be an actor, that's fine, but they should do something else first, so they've got something to fall back on. It doesn't work like that, as far as I'm concerned.

On love.

My heart aches completely, every hour, every day, and only when I'm with you does the pain go away.

Doing without thinking.

I don't really like to know what I'm going to do before I do it.


UNICEF is successfully giving children and young people all over the world opportunities and hope. Just like the ones we met on the Long Way Down - protecting them from exploitation and giving them chances in life.

Having your own lightsaber.

I've been waiting nearly twenty years to have my own lightsaber. Nothing's cooler than being a Jedi Knight.

On politicians.

I find politicians so desperately boring. I don't trust them and don't believe in them.

At the end...

I was with a friend of mine recently who was dying and while he was lying there with his family around his bed, I just knew that was it, that was the best you can hope for in life - to have your family and the people who love you around you at the end.

Embarking on an adventure.

A tent, a roll mat, a little bit of food, a bit of petrol in your tank, and a vague idea of where you're going and that's all you need.

Being arrogant in a good way.

I don't pay much attention to my career or what other people think. I've always been quite arrogant.

His destiny.

I never imagined it wouldn't work out for me. I had that absolute certainty in myself that has seen me through, I think, and my parents were absolutely behind me all the way.

On film scripts.

I'm sent a script. I read the script. If I love it, I want to do it. And that's it I don't care who's in it, how much money is behind it, really to an extent who's directing it.

Abstinence from phone and email.

When you take away the phone and e-mail and you don't have a million things to run around to, it allows your mind the space to think more expansively about the things that matter.

The key to a successful marriage.

I don't think having separate bathrooms is the key to a successful marriage if you love one another.
