Ewan McGregor has opened up about his fear of his parents watching him appear naked on screen. The Haywire actor was shocked to learn that his mother and father organised a trip to see him in The Pillow Book back in , which featured several full-frontal nude scenes and footage of him sleeping with "an old Japanese man". When he phoned me and said, 'We're going to see the film tonight, son', I just immediately had an image of me having sex with that old Japanese man. McGregor's fears proved to be unfounded though, as his family were impressed with both his "beautiful" performance and how he shaped up on screen.
