EWAN McGREGOR had better wear his underpants at the French premiere of MOULIN ROUGE (2001) - because he'll be up on stage doing the CAN CAN. Ewan and co-star NICOLE KIDMAN will be reunited to Can Can the night away at the glitzy event in September (01).
The glitzy event is to be held in the home of the saucy French dance - The Moulin Rouge Club itself. A host of top celebs are expected to attend the windmill-fronted nightspot to see the pair sing songs from the movie and have a knees up.
Club spokeswoman FANNY RABASSE reveals, "We are hosting the French premiere and it's going to have something that none of the other premieres have - Nicole and Ewan performing on the stage of the real club. "
"Of course Nicole has had lots of practice doing the can can in the movie so she will look very at home on stage. And if Ewan's wearing his kilt I am very hopeful that he will have a go too - as long as he's wearing his underwear. "
The club has featured stunning women performing the cheeky dance since 1889, and has already been the subject of several films. (JM/WN/RP)
