Ewan and Booze


Ewan McGregor has revealed that he had to battle with alcohol during his rise to fame.

The Scottish actor, best known for his breakthrough role in Trainspotting, told Playboy magazine that he knew he had to get a grip when he turned from a happy drunk to a miserable one.

"I was just ashamed of myself, really," he told the magazine. "None of my directors ever said, 'You know, I'd rather you didn't drink at work.' None of them. And they must have known. "I was reeking of (alcohol). Originally I was a happy drunk. But later I was miserable because it's a depressant."

The Star Wars actor went on to reveal that he doesn't keep acting for the money or the fame: "If you chase fame, you're just going to end up miserable and unhappy. I'm not interested in fame, because you'll never be famous enough. "You'll never wake up one day and go, 'I'm f**king famous, and I'm really happy.'

"It seems to me the more money people get paid, the lazier they become."
