Ewan McGregor hates a certain kind of Star Wars fans


Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, was in the limelight lately for being one of the many rumored to play Doctor Strange. Marvel hasn’t officially confirmed it yet, but it’s reported that Benedict Cumberbatch is one step closer to playing the Sorcerer Supreme.

During an interview with Details, McGregor was asked about whether he agrees with people saying that The Phantom Menace was “a piece of crap?”

“I watched it once, at the premiere,” McGregor said. “So I’m not in a good position to judge.”

To be fair, he said that the prequel films had to follow the act of the classic trilogy, since “they had a tall order, the three films I did. The fans waited so long and wanted to feel like they did when they watched the first film, but they were grown-ups by that time.”

As for whether he’s fazed by the criticism:

“I don’t mind the criticism. I’ve heard it to my face.”

When asked about whether he had a positive experience with a Star Wars fan, he admits that he doesn’t “have any experience with them.”

“I’ve never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the fuckers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their fucking picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They’re not fans — they’re parasitical lowlifes and fucking wankers,” said McGregor.

What? He’s never been to a Star Wars convention? Perhaps he wants to keep his life private, or perhaps he doesn’t care about meeting fans? Whatever the case, he clearly hates scalpers and selfish Star Wars fans.
