Ewan McGregor Wears Kilt to Receive Order of British Empire, Would Be "Up for" Role in Porno (E!) by Rebecca Macatee

Ewan McGregor was honored Friday at Buckingham Palace with an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for his contributions to film and charity.

A place on Queen Elizabeth II's honors list is very highbrow, so the 42-year-old Star Wars hunk telling reporters he'd be up for a role in Porno seemed a bit odd. But that doesn't mean quite what you think…

McGregor starred in 1996's Trainspotting, the Danny Boyle-helmed film based on Irvine Welsh's novel of the same name. Boyle has recently spoken about making a sequel to the famed flick, based on Irvine's book Porno, and McGregor is interested, to say the least.

"I have not been approached officially, but I would be up for it and there has been talk about it happening in 2016, 20 years after we did Trainspotting," he told reporters, per the Herald Scotland. "The sequel is called Porno, so I have to be careful about saying I am doing Porno in 2016."

Clearly, though, McGregor values the films—and traditions—of his past. The Scottish actor wore a red-and-green-tartan kilt, paired with knee socks and a tie and jacket.

"I didn't have to think about it, that was always what I was going to wear," he said. "If you don't wear your kilt here, I don't know where you are going to wear it."
