Thanks to his Beginners co-star, Ewan McGregor is now totally obsessed with dogs.
Cosmo, a Jack Russell terrier who made his movie debut in Hotel for Dogs plays Ewan's dog Arthur in the film.
Cosmo's trainer, Mathilde de Cagny, reveals Ewan totally fell in love with his dog. Mathilde added:
"I rarely encounter actors that are so taken by their co-stars. A lot of actors like dogs, and they're happy to be in scenes with them, but they won't go out of their way to have this relationship with them. Ewan did right away."
McGregor so took to Cosmo, who is "cuddly" for a Jack Russell as well as loving and people-oriented, that he asked Cagny if she would be willing to let Cosmo come home with him. De Cagny couldn't part with Cosmo, so the day after McGregor finished shooting the film, he went to a shelter and adopted a dog.
"He literally didn't go anywhere without a dog since the movie," de Cagny says. "It's extra fulfilling, the feeling, when you have an actor that takes onto an animal so much."
