Ewan McGregor says working on ‘Moulin Rouge!’ was one of the most “amazing” experiences of his career.
The 40-year-old actor starred with Nicole Kidman in Baz Luhrman’s musical drama and he admits he had an “unbelievable” time making the film and hanging out with his co-stars.
He said: “‘Moulin Rouge!’ was an amazing experience. Just walking onto that huge set, with that colour and the music and dancing girls and the dancing boys.
“And then getting to play the f***ing lead in it and sing your intentions. It was just unbelievable.
On Wednesday evening, Nic attended the Cinema Society Screening of Snow Flower And The Secret Fan, a new film produced by Nicole’s good friend Wendi Murdoch and featuring a cameo from Hugh Jackman. Nic looks gorgeous in a red fitted Elie Saab dress, with nude Jimmy Choo shoes, a plum coloured Lâ€™Wren Scott clutch, and jewellry by Cathy Waterman.
In 19th-century China, seven year old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong – or “old sames” – bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language, nu shu, between the folds of a white silk fan. In a parallel story in present day Shanghai, the laotong’s descendants, Nina and Sophia, struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers, complicated love lives, and a relentlessly evolving Shanghai. Drawing on the lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or risk losing one another forever.

As expected, Nicole attended the BAFTAs Brits To Watch Event in Los Angeles last night, a highly publicised event which was also attended by Prince William and Kate Middleton! Nic looked stunning in a light blue/green sequinned floor length Elie Saab Couture gown, with Manolo Blahnik heels, Cathy Waterman jewellry, and a Ferragamo clutch. She waved to fans outside the event, and posed on the red carpet with Mary Louise Parker (fact fans, you may be interested to see that in some of the photos with Mary Louise Parker, you can see Nine director Rob Marshall in the background behind them).
Inside the gala, Nicole seemed to be having a very animated conversation with Prince William, and enjoyed a chat with Kate, too! It’s wonderful seeing Nic with these two … especially with Kate, as, in my opinion, Nicole and Kate Middleton are the definition of class and elegance. And proving yet again that she really IS Hollywood royalty, Nicole was given the honour of sitting at the ‘top table’ with the two Royals, alongside Barbara Streisand and James Brolin, and various studio executives. Quite an honour!
Over 85 photos have been added to our Gallery, most of which are in gorgeous HQ! Big thanks to my friend Mariana for several of these photos. Further down this post are a few articles from the event with some interesting tidbits, and I will hunt down more info and hopefully some videos for you tomorrow, all being well. View, enjoy, comment … and then view again

It’s beginning to look a lot like a major Hollywood awards show.
While news broke earlier today that Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony may be among the celebs rubbing elbows with Prince William and Kate Middleton at Saturday’s big BAFTA gala, I can exclusively report that…
Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Kristin Chenoweth, Derek Hough, Ginnifer Goodwin and Dana Delany will definitely be there.
Sources also tell me that Jack Black is likely to attend.
As for J. Lo and Anthony’s appearance, a source tells me that they aren’t confirmed just yet, but their glam squad has been put on hold. US Weekly also reports that the couple may even be sitting with the Duke and Duchess, but sources tell me that is highly unlikely.
The BAFTA Brits to Watch event will celebrate 42 emerging Brits in Hollywood. The red carpet event will take place at the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles after the royal couple head back to the city from Santa Barbara, where the prince will compete in a charity polo match.
We’ll be livestreaming the BAFTAs red carpet, so check back at E! Online Saturday at 6:30 p.m. for all the action.
