Ewan McGregor | An Independent Star
True to his independent spirit, McGregor continued to take roles that pushed boundaries and expectations. In Peter Greenways’ 1997 intricate puzzle drama of desire, McGregor plays an English man erotically entangled with a Japanese woman, a role that Time’s Richard Corliss expressed “shows again that he is one of the boldest, most charming young actors.” And in Todd Haynes ode to glam rock Velvet Goldmine McGregor so embodied the crazed rock Curt Wild that the Austin Chronicle’s Russell Smith described him as “doing an Iggy Pop/Lou Reed amalgam to scary perfection” and Salon’s Stephanie Zacharek commends how he “nails Wild's willfulness but also his vulnerability.”
