Hollywood star EWAN McGREGOR has been voted Britain's coolest man. The MOULIN ROUGE (2001) hunk came top of a poll by magazine ESQUIRE to find Britain's answer to JOHNNY DEPP - who was voted America's trendiest man.
Second in the list is VICTORIA BECKHAM's soccer star husband DAVID, followed by ENEMY AT THE GATES (2000) hunk JUDE LAW. Also in the top ten is British director SAM MENDES, who won an OSCAR last year (00) for blockbuster movie AMERICAN BEAUTY (1999).
McGregor is hot property in Tinseltown at the moment after taking starring roles in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999) and next years (02) Star Wars: Episode II (2002), and alongside NICOLE KIDMAN in this year's (01) musical blockbuster Moulin Rouge (2001). (IG/WNTRE/NFA)
