Ewan ocGregor and George Clooney have each been waxing lyrical about the critics they co-star with in their new movie ‘The oen Who Stare at Goats’.

Scottish heart-throb Ewan says, “There was a scene when George and I are lost, and we are sleeping in the desert. I am supposed to be awakened when a goat with a little bell walks by. I follow the goat and it leads us to water. It saves our lives. We did the first take and the goat just ran through. But in the second take, the goat looked at me and it stopped perfectly in the frame. It stood there looking at me for almost 30 seconds. I looked at the goat and the goat looked at me, then it was almost as if he nodded and just carried on. It was absolutely perfect.”

George was also impressed by the animals’ screen presence, explaining, “Working with goats, we spent a lot of time together. The goat I had to stare out was a great actor – if you told him to do something, he would. Now if only I had got Ewan to take lessons from him, we’d be onto a winner! But although they were good, I don’t think I want to be working with animals again in the near future!”
