Cinematic Crush: Ewan McGregor

Crush object: Ewan McGregor, actor.

- Following the sleeper hit Shallow Grave, he really broke out with his leading role as Renton in the indie classic Trainspotting; supporting turns in Emma and Little Voice added to his fame.

- He became known for his fearless -- and often full frontal -- performances in The Pillow Book, Velvet Goldmine and Young Adam.

- Blockbuster stardom came when he was cast as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels and the musical hit Moulin Rouge!, resulting in a Golden Globe nomination for the latter.

- Other notable films he has starred in include Black Hawk Down, Down With Love, Big Fish, The Island, Miss Potter, Cassandra's Dream and the animated features Robots and Valiant.

- He stars opposite Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams in this week's sex thriller Deception and is slated to appear as the object of Jim Carrey's affection in next year's I Love You Phillip Morris.
