Ewan McGregor Refused To Appear On The Same Show As Piers Morgan

January 24, 2017 / Posted by:

Ewan McGregor has a new movie, T2: Trainspotting, coming out soon, which means he’s hustling the goods on a series of TV shows. One of the stops on Ewan’s promo tour was supposed to happen this morning on Good Morning Britain, but he decided that he didn’t want to do the show after discovering that one of the hosts is rancid Turkey Twizzler Piers Morgan. Ewan added an extra sting in his slap by making his announcement a public one on Twitter.

The comments Ewan are referring to come from a piece Piers wrote for The Daily Mail about the Women’s March. Piers thought the march was dumb and once again went in hard on Madonna. Ewan is what the young people call a “woke bae“, and so it’s not exactly strange that he’d want to distance himself from Piers. Of course, Piers’ feelings were hurt by Ewan’s decision to bail on Good Morning Britain, and he cried it out on Twitter.

Piers was still clearly pissed at Ewan for cancelling on their breakfast date, so he kept at it. Piers slapped back at Ewan’s claims of being a member of Team Women by bringing up the time that he chose to work with Roman Polanski on the 2010 film The Ghost Writer.

Ewan hasn’t responded, probably because he’s too busy thinking “Eeesh, really wish I wasn’t smiling so hard in that picture.

The ironic thing is that Ewan could have easily avoided triggering Piers’ inner troll. Ewan didn’t have to give a reason for why he chose to bail on his appearance on GMB. All he had to say was “I’m cancelling because Piers Morgan will be there“, and everyone would have just accepted that. I bet if you asked a booking agent to list the most common reasons that someone would kill an interview, they’d say “hungover/sick” followed by “found out they’d be in the same room as noted asshole Piers Morgan“, and then maybe “travel delay” as the third.

Here’s Ewan looking like the hot Scottish love child of Michael Stipe and Gord Downie in London earlier today.
