Ewan McGregor had a brush with skin cancer but says he is "fine" now.
The Scottish actor, 37, was promoting his latest film, the sex thriller Deception, when he revealed on the BBC that he was forced to have a suspicious-looking facial mole – one of several – removed from just below his right eye.
"You have to be careful if you're pale-skinned and spend any time in the sun," McGregor said. "I went to see a specialist who thought they were better to be removed, and indeed he was correct."
