Washington, May 20 (ANI): Scottish star Ewan McGregor has revealed how a couple once mistook him for the ghost of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
He revealed that he was in London when Cobain ended his own life in 1994.
McGregor said that it was during a night out with his friends that he was accosted by a couple who were convinced he was the dead singer.
“This couple came around the corner and they saw me, and at the time I had quite long hair,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Britain’s Heart FM.
“I think it would be safe to say they were on some form of chemical enhancement. The guy thought I was Kurt Cobain and he looked at me and slightly panicked and grabbed hold of his girlfriend and he asked me if I was Kurt,” he added.
He even revealed that he did not make any clarifications, and let the couple believe that what they had seen was real.
“I just went, ‘Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone,’ and I left them really confused in the street,” he said. (ANI)
