Reporting from the Cannes Film Festival. Two recurring themes in Woody Allen's filmography are murder and dangerous love affairs. His latest is Irrational Man and it continues this trend with mixed results. But mostly it will leave you with thoughts of revisiting Allen's better efforts like Crimes and Misdemeanors, Match Point and Cassandra's Dream. His latest film (which just premiered at Cannes) takes place in a concentrated college town where everyone seems to know each other and privacy is nonexistent. Insecure philosophy professor Abe Lucas (played by Joaquin Phoenix) has just been hired at the fictional Braylin College and it's treated like an atom bomb of gossip by the faculty and student body. Everyone has a theory about the professor before he's even reached the campus, with rumors flying of alcoholism, erratic behavior and sexual affairs with female students. It doesn't matter if the rumors are true, it's still »

The trailer for Woody Allen's new film, Irrational Man, sells it as a light entertainment where college professor Joaquin Phoenix finds himself reinvigorated by young student Emma Stone, so imagine our surprise at Cannes today when the film premiered and revealed one extra, essential wrinkle: It's yet another Allen film preoccupied by getting away with murder. Phoenix's potbellied prof finds himself consumed with the notion of committing the perfect crime against an obstinate judge whose rub-out might actually make the world a better place, and this theme of ordinary, murderous men circumventing justice is one that Allen has returned to so often — in films like Crimes and Misdemeanors, Match Point, and Cassandra's Dream — that a journalist at today's Cannes press conference straight-up asked Allen, "Have you ever considered murdering someone?"Allen peered at the man for a beat, then replied, "Even as you speak!"For many of his critics, »

"I don't think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well-hung would -- or should -- or could be," Farrell jokes to the magazine. "I think that's the greatest demonstration of his innate humility, that he doesn't wear it like a badge of honor."

Ewan, 43, is looking as handsome as ever on the cover of Nylon Guys, in which he also opens up about hanging with A-listers Angelina Jolie and Jude Law in the late '90s in London, when the actors were all on the brink of hitting the big time.

It's no secret that Ewan McGregor isn't afraid to bare all on the big screen. In fact, his penis has appeared in films such as Young Adam, Trainspotting, The Pillow Book and I Love You Philip Morris, to name a few. And if you've seen one of the aforementioned full-frontal scenes, then you're well aware that the 43-year-old is well-endowed—a fact which Colin Farrell had no trouble pointing out in a recent interview with Nylon magazine. "I don't think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well hung would—or should—or could be," he joked of his Cassandra's Dream co-star. "I think that's the greatest demonstration of his innate »
Spilling secrets! Ewan McGregor spoke to Nylon Guys in its March 2015 cover story about his roles (past and present) and his wild Hollywood life, which somehow included commentary from a fellow celebrity, who had several (ahem!) gratuitous remarks about the actor. Colin Farrell, who costarred with the Scottish hunk in the 2007 thriller Cassandra's Dream, joked about McGregor being rather well-endowed. "I don’t think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well hung would—or should—or could be," Farrell said, likening [...] »
