Ewan McGregor was interviewed for the June issue of Men's Health and spilled about his addictions and the relationship he holds so dear.
Some HIGHlights include:
On addictions: "I wasn't someone who could smoke or drink in moderation, and I recognized that those things would kill me. I started visualizing the doctor telling me that I had cancer from smoking or that I was extremely ill because of how much I'd been drinking. What kind of regret would I have if I had to tell my children or my wife that I was dying because of something I could have done something about? I didn't want to be that kind of man."
On how he quit: "What matters most with any regimen, whether it's to lose weight or stop drinking or smoking, is your willingness to seek help and your desire to say no more. The voice in your head that says 'I chose not to' is what ultimately makes the difference between not changing and making changes that last."
On his 14-year marriage to French production designer, Eve Mavrakis: "From the moment Eve and I met it was right, and I hesitate to explain the reasons behind that. If you spend too much time 'working' on your relationship, I don't think it's a relationship worth being in. With Eve, I've never had to work. We just have it. I'm in it, she's in it, and that's that … If you're attracted to someone, you're comfortable with them and have mutual respect, the rest will take care of itself."
He's really grown up! Such a family man these days!
