EWAN McGREGOR has been writing poetry - but he's determined no one will ever get to read it.
The Scottish TRAINSPOTTING (1996) star says that he discovered his poetic side while filming the musical extravaganza MOULIN ROUGE (2001) with NICOLE KIDMAN - and, once he started, he just couldn't stop.
McGregor says, "I do write a wee bit of poetry now and then. "I had a typewriter to practice for the movie in my trailer. So I wrote a lot of nonsense." But he's determined he won't be joining the ranks of published celebrity writers anytime soon. McGregor adds, "They're in a book in my house. And there they will remain." (LE/DT/PDD)
