Biography

McGregor has been married since 1995 to Eve Mavrakis, a French production designer, whom he met on the set of Kavanagh QC. They have four daughters: Clara Mathilde McGregor (b. 1996), Esther Rose McGregor (b. 2001), Jamyan McGregor (b. 2001), and Anouk McGregor (b. 2011). In 2006, McGregor and his wife adopted Jamyan from Mongolia, where he spent time during the Long Way Round journey in 2004. McGregor has a heart and dagger tattoo of the names of his wife and daughters on his right arm. The family currently resides in Los Angeles, California after moving from London.

McGregor is involved in charity work, including with UNICEF and GO Campaign. During the Long Way Round journey in 2004, McGregor and his travelling companions saw some of UNICEF's work in Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Mongolia, and during the Long Way Down trip in 2007, he and Charley Boorman did work for UNICEF in Africa. McGregor hosted the annual Hollywood gala for GO Campaign in 2009 and 2010. He has also worked with the Children's Hospice Association Scotland, as featured in Long Way Down. In 2012, McGregor travelled with UNICEF immunisation workers to remote parts of India, Nepal and the Republic of Congo for a BBC2 documentary entitled Ewan McGregor: Cold Chain Mission.

In June 2015 McGregor contributed narration to GivingTales, an app of children's fairy tales created to generate funds for UNICEF.

In 2007, on an episode of Parkinson, McGregor stated that he had given up alcohol after a period where he was arguably a functioning alcoholic, and that he had not had a drink in seven years. In 2008, he had a cancerous mole removed from underneath his right eye.

Apparu pour la première fois à Ann Arbor (Michigan) en pleine révolution contre-culturelle, le style de rock'n'roll puissant et agressif des Stooges a fait l’effet d’une bombe dans le paysage musical de la fin des années 60. Soufflant le public avec un mélange de rock, de blues, de R&B et de free jazz, le groupe - au sein duquel débute Iggy Pop - posa les fondations de ce que l’on appellera plus tard le punk et le rock alternatif. GIMME DANGER retrace l’épopée des Stooges et présente le contexte dans lequel l'un des plus grands groupes de rock de tous les temps a émergé musicalement, culturellement, politiquement et historiquement. Jim Jarmusch retrace leurs aventures et leurs mésaventures en montrant leurs inspirations et les motivations de leurs premiers défis commerciaux, jusqu’à leur arrivée au Panthéon du rock.
