Ewan McGregor III: Velvet Goldmine

My personal favourite Ewan-with-long-hair film is Velvet Goldmine, in which he plays Curt Wild, a fictional glam rock star. It's a fantastic film visually, with great music and lots of qualiy people in it, such as Eddie Izzard and Toni Colette. And as the icing on the cake, it stars Ewan McGregor as a messed-up, pansexual hybrid of Iggy Pop and Kurt Cobain.

He's got trailer-trash long blonde hair -

- he takes all his clothes off -

- and he gets off with Jonathan Rhys Meyers -

- what more could you ask for?

Recommended reading: the Velvet Goldmine Glitter Page and The Ziggy Stardust Companion.

And if that's given you a taste for Jonathan Rhys Meyers, watch this space...

Nice Pics! Ewan is a nice looking guy. How good was Velvet Goldmine? I'm thinking of watching it. And what other of his movies do you recommend? Penny

Hi Penny

Velvet Goldmine isn't particularly deep or meaningful, but it is good fun; great glam-rock aesthetic and music, good cast, entertaining story. And if you like Ewan, then you get to see plenty of him in this :)

As for his other films, Shallow Grave and Trainspotting are both worth watching, as is The Pillow Book.
