Ewan McGregor Regrets Making "Star Wars"

From worstpreviews, They are some of the highest-grossing movies of all time, but Ewan McGregor regrets appearing in "Star Wars," reports The Sun.

During a recent trip to a Scottish hospice, the father of a young patient suffering from an incurable condition, asked him about his best and worst film. In a very surprising answer, McGregor branded the sci-fi movies the worst work he has ever done.

Hamish Glasgow, whose three-year-old son Hamish suffers from rare Hoyeraal Hreidarsson, says: "Ewan was really down to earth. He was great with Cameron. He was really relaxed and you could tell he's a really good dad. He said the favorite movie he'd done was 'Trainspotting' and the one he liked least was 'Star Wars.'"

McGregor starred as Obi-Wan Kenobi in 1999's 'The Phantom Menace,' 2002's 'Attack Of The Clones' and 2005's 'Revenge Of The Sith.'

Ah, that sucks. I remember some behind the scenes footage when Ewan jumps from a greenscreened balcony onto a greenscreened cushion, and Lucas yells "cut!" and Ewan looks at the crew members around him and beams "they asked if I'd do Star Wars and I said 'hell yes!'" He really tried, you know? One more person on the disappointed pile.

I wonder if Ewan has ever sat through A Life Less Ordinary. I hate the prequels as much as the next guy but sheesh.

Moulin Rouge?

He's right about Trainspotting though...
