When we learned Ewan McGregor was teaming up with director Danny Boyle for Trainspotting 2, we’ll admit, we screamed with excitement. But imagine our shock when we learned that before this film, Danny Boyle and Ewan McGregor were in a feud for over ten years! The two spoke about it on The Graham Norton Show, and we have to say, both handled the situation with immense grace. We’re so glad Trainspotting 2 gave these two a chance to make up!
Watch Ewan McGregor and Danny Boyle discuss their feud.
Ewan, looking bashful, admits in front of Danny and the rest of the cast of Trainspotting 2:
You can only fall out of with someone you love. Wise words, Ewan. We could just watch you spouting your brilliance 24/7.
Both men now admit that they did not handle the situation well. Both were younger and dumber, and can now bury the hatchet. And thank goodness they did! Because Trainspotting 2 looks like a ton of fun, and all our old favorites have returned. The sequel will be released this March. Hopefully, the press tour will inspire even more friendship between this brilliant actor and director. And perhaps there will be future brilliant movies? A girl can dream.
