JIM CARREY, EWAN MCGREGOR KNIGHTED IN FRANCE


Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey EWAN McGregor and Jim Carrey have been knighted in France.

The two actors celebrated with a mock kiss as they received the country’s National Order of Arts and Letters in Paris Monday.

The award — created by the French government in May 1957 — was given in recognition of the actors’ contributions to the film industry.

As the pair were presented with their honors, French Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand told them, “I love you, Jim Carrey! I love you, Ewan McGregor!”

Other actors to have been made knights of the Order of Arts and Letters include Jude Law, George Clooney, Vanessa Paradis, Clint Eastwood and Roger Moore.

Carrey and McGregor — neither of whom are French nationals — are no strangers to kissing each other.

In their latest film, I Love you Philip Morris, Canadian actor Carrey plays an imprisoned con man who falls in love with his cellmate, Philip Morris, played by Scottish star McGregor.

The film has proved controversial in the US as it features an explicit gay sex scene between the two male characters.
