Awesome Explosion: Even Helen Mirren Seems in Awe of Sitting on a Couch Beside Ewan McGregor


How did Graham Norton gather this particular group of magical people — Helen Mirren, Ewan McGregor, Eric Bana and Ricky Gervais — together? Who cares? Just watch.

    There are couple of things I’d like to unpack here. 1) Both Ewan McGregor and Eric Bana!? Ooof, I may not make it through the day as a straight man 2) Ewan and I totally sit on couches the same way. I do plan on mentioning this to him the moment I meet him.

      It basically makes you twins.

    I would like to be invited to the party the next time all of these people get together. I mix a mean mojito. It would totally be worth it to invite me, I swear.
