McGregor's poetic death threats

Ewan McGregor receives death threats on film set

Ewan McGregor's stand in in new film The Impossible isn't much of a fan of his famous colleague it seems.

McGregor's stand in, an unnamed Thai man, has penned a death threat in poem form for the Star Wars actor, containing alarming verses, including one saying "Twisting the knife as I look into your eyes."

The man has been sacked from the production, although it's unlikely that the Thai police will take the accident seriously as no actual direct threats to the Scottish actor have been made.

The Impossible, which stars McGregor, Naomi Watts and Tom Hollander, is currently being filmed in Phang-ga in Thailand.
