Ewan McGregor Shuns Stripping Off in Films

March 21, 2011 (9:10 am) GMT
The 'Perfect Sense' actor wants to avoid any awkward experiences with female co-stars, who are considerably younger than him, by avoiding stripping off for his movie roles.

Actor avoids stripping off for movie roles nowadays to keep younger female co-stars from thinking he's "taking advantage of the situation". The Scottish star, who turns 40 later in March, admits he's aware many actresses are considerably younger than him and he wants to avoid any awkward experiences.

"I'm getting older and the actresses stay younger," he says. "I don't want to become , where his love interests seem 50 years younger than him. You never want female co-stars to feel like you're taking advantage of the situation. Anyhow, sex scenes are terribly exposing and rarely of any use in learning about character."

But McGregor doesn't regret stripping off for past movie roles, "It's all about life. We're naked at the end of the day and we're sometimes naked in the middle of the day, if we're lucky. It may seem like I'm obsessed with sex but it's actually the opposite."
