How Do You Like Your Ewan McGregor? Naked? Singing? Or Both?

Hottie actor, Ewan McGregor is known for either singing on film, or being nude. Entertainment Weekly takes a look back on 19 notable roles, including several in which he sings, flashes, or does both. Here are a couple of fun excerpts:

Down With Love (2003)
Catcher Block, magazine journalist and playboy in 1962 Manhattan.
SYNOPSIS: In this parody of Doris Day-Rock Hudson movies, Block and protofeminist author Barbara Novak (Renée Zellweger) flirt with each other while fighting the battle of the sexes.
NAKED? No, though a towel-clad McGregor has a hilarious ''sex scene'' with Zellweger while the two are actually in separate frames of a split screen.
SINGING? McGregor and Zellweger duet on Here's to Love, a song composed for the movie, during a dance number performed over the closing credits.

The Island (2005)
Lincoln Six-Echo, a clone.
SYNOPSIS: Lincoln and fellow clone Jordan Two-Delta (Scarlett Johansson) go on the run when they learn they've been bred solely to provide spare parts for their progenitors.
NAKED? No, though he's shirtless in a fantasy sequence (pictured).
