McGregor says mother behind ‘American Pastoral’ directorial debut


LONDON Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, in his directorial debut, brought an instrumentation of Philip Roth’s novel “American Pastoral” to a Zurich Film Festival this week and pronounced his mother helped him get behind a camera.

McGregor also stars in a movie, set in late 1960s America, alongside Jennifer Connelly and Dakota Fanning, personification a male whose family starts to tumble detached when his daughter becomes politically radicalized.

“I’ve always wanted to approach for a prolonged time and we always wanted to wait to have a story that we felt we was blazing to tell,” McGregor told Reuters in an interview.

“Then we was articulate to my mother about a fact that we didn’t consider this one was going to occur and she pronounced ‘you should approach that one’ (American Pastoral).”

Asked about potentially personification a subsequent James Bond – a purpose that has been related to several actors – McGregor joked: “If there are auditions for James Bond, we don’t know about them. So we am going to phone my representative immediately to find out.”
