Ewan McGregor Responds to Homophobic Laughter on Live TV


Actor Ewan McGregor added to his legions of gay admirers when he deflated some casual homophobic comments during an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America Thursday.

McGregor was on the morning program to promote his role in the new film The Ghost Writer, and after dodging questions from host George Stephanopoulos about his opinion of the court case involving the film's director, Roman Polanski, a photo of the actor kissing Jim Carrey at a French awards ceremony was shown. Amid groans and laughter from the GMA crew, the Scottish actor, who is on the cover of the current issue of Out, responded, "Well, that's just two men kissing, and ... in this age, in 2010 it's extraordinary that it's still an object of humor."

Stephanopoulos pressed by saying the two actors were making out, but McGregor insisted that it was just a kiss.

McGregor costars with Carrey in the gay-themed I Love You Phillip Morris, about two convicts who fall in love while in prison, which is scheduled for release March 26.
