Ewan McGregor Doesn't Enjoy Filming Hot, Sweaty Sex Scenes

He may play a sexy stud in the movies, but all that onscreen lovemaking isn't fun and games for Ewan McGregor.

The 'Angels and Demons' star revealed on The Graham Norton Show that rolling around for sex scenes these days is "a strange and bizarre thing to be doing."

He goes on to explain that while he's now 40 years old, his onscreen love interests just get younger and younger, making the entire experience awkward for everyone.

And those sweaty and passionate sex scenes that Hollywood does so well? No thanks, McGregor says. Not only are those scenes weird to film, "they are also embarrassing to watch." He says he much prefers tasteful romantic moments over the raunchy scenes any day.

This isn't the first time the Scottish actor has voiced his displeasure in getting down and dirty for roles. He recently revealed to Harper's Bizarre that he's not too keen on shedding his clothes for films anymore.

“I have to be careful now,” McGregor told the mag about showing his skin. “If people think ‘there’s McGregor taking his clothes off again,' it can actually distract them from the movie.”

Somehow we don't think him shedding his clothes would be all that bad for business.
