Interesting interview with McGregor on the magazine OUT.
Ewan tells Out magazine why he thinks the film, a hit at the 2009 Sundance fest, has been delayed in release.
First, there's a lot of sex. A lot of gay sex. And part of the delay may have been due to Carrey's holiday movie, "A Christmas Carol."
"There was talk that Disney fended off the release until after 'A Christmas Carol' came out. They didn't want kids thinking [Carrey's] Ebenezer Scrooge was a bender," he tells Out.
Some have said it's not a gay movie. But McGregor disagrees. "It's about a gay couple, about a man's sexuality, and he comes out. It's not the point of the film, but let's not pretend it's not a gay film."
Gay or straight, it's the love story that fascinates McGregor. "I like playing someone who's falling in love because I like the sensation of it. People do extraordinary things when they're falling in love."
At the end of the article they write a new release date. Wondering if they have changed the date again again again:
April 23, 2010
