Ewan McGregor: 'I like kissing boys on screen'

MSN Entertainment

Scottish movie star Ewan McGregor isn't shy when it comes to kissing on film -- especially if the person he's kissing happens to be another guy.

"I like kissing boys on screen," McGregor tells Our magazine of smooching Jim Carrey in the upcoming "I Love You Phillip Morris." "As a straight guy, it's quite an interesting proposition. Anything on a film set that takes you by surprise like that, that gets your blood up, is good."

The film, in which McGregor and Carrey play lovers, was initially supposed to be released last year, but according to McGregor, the studio executives behind the "Disney's A Christmas Carol" were scared that Carrey's portrayal of a gay man would confuse their audience.

"There was talk that Disney fended off the release (of 'Morris') until after 'A Christmas Carol' came out," the Scot said. "They didn't want kids thinking (Carrey's) Ebenezer Scrooge was a bender."

"I Love You Phillip Morris," which was a sensation at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival in Utah, will finally hit theaters on March 26.
