Ewan McGregor 'Flattered' That Louis CK Would Go Gay For Him: VIDEO

Ewan McGregor is known for playing sexually fluid characters onscreen, so it comes as no surprise that he's equally at ease when it comes to the admiration of real-life men.

"I'm flattered...I like it very much," the 40-year-old actor, who will next be seen opposite Emily Blunt in "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen," told George Stroumboulopoulos. "Some of the films I've done have been absolutely about sex and sexuality. I'm just interested in people and romance...falling in love with somebody is one of the strongest emotional things that we go through. Whether that's for a man or a woman, I don't really mind. I think what's interesting is the feelings themselves."

Stroumboulopoulos had pressed McGregor about Louis CK's professed "man crush" on the "Trainspotting" hunk. "The one guy I would blow based on who he is Ewan McGregor," the heterosexual comedian said during a stand-up act, as seen in this video. "Jesus Christ, he's f**king beautiful! Like, seriously, I'm not gay in any other way, except I wanna f**k that guy right in the face...I want him to f**k me!"
