Ewan McGregor’s daughter has shared an anecdote that would surely be many people’s worst nightmare – having to watch her own father in nude scenes on film.

Throughout his career, Ewan has made a name for himself as one of the world’s most famous actors starring in films including Trainspotting, Moulin Rouge! and the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

The 52-year-old is now starring in a new movie called Bleeding Love with his real-life daughter Clara McGregor, 28, who he shares with his ex-wife Eve Mavrakis.

The father and daughter duo recently stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel Live! talkshow to discuss what it was like to work together, which is when the uncomfortable subject of Clara watching one particular film that her dad appeared in came up.

When asked if she had seen many of her dad’s movies, she answered: ‘I saw a lot of them. There was one that was quite memorable, watching this one was quite memorable in particular, because when I was a senior in high school I took a gender studies class.’

Straight away, Ewan placed his head in his hands, grimacing with embarrassment as his daughter continued.

‘My teacher came up to me near the end of the semester and said: ‘Listen, there’s a movie that I usually teach as part of the curriculum. Your dad is in it and there is some nudity, so I wanted to run it by you before we watched it in class.”

‘I said it was fine, I didn’t really think much of it, and so we watched a movie called The Pillow Book, which is a brilliant film. But watching that movie at 17 with your entire high school class, it’s more like they’re watching me watch that film.’

As the audience in the studio laughed, Jimmy, 56, asked Ewan whether he was nude for much of the movie in question.

‘A lot,’ he confirmed, as Clara piped up to add: ‘Full-frontally nude, the whole time!’

Ewan revealed that Clara’s teacher had also emailed him to check if he was ok with The Pillow Book being shown to her and her class.

‘The teacher, she emailed me before as well to say, “Just so you know, I’m thinking to show this for your daughter’s class, is that ok?” I went, “I wouldn’t want to be the reason you don’t show that movie to your kids, because it’s a beautiful movie,”’ he recollected.

‘But I said, “You have to guarantee that the kids are mature enough not to make fun of Clara or make her feel bad.’

Clara acknowledged that her class were mature enough, before adding: ‘It was uncomfortable. I think they also probably felt a little uncomfortable about it.’

To make an awkward situation even more cringeworthy, Jimmy then crudely joked: ‘Yeah, they’re like, “Oh there’s where she came from.”

‘Come on, Jimmy!’ Ewan exclaimed.

A number of Ewan’s family are in the entertainment business, with the actor having married his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead – who went on to appear in the Star Wars series Ahsoka – in 2022.

His daughter Esther appeared alongside him in the TV show Obi-Wan Kenobi, and his uncle is Denis Lawson, who also starred in Star Wars as Wedge Antilles in the original trilogy.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs on ABC in the US.
