Web exclusive: Actor Ewan McGregor: Singing 'is a ballsy thing to do'

(CNN) - Actor Ewan McGregor has singing chops - fans will remember his role in the musicals "Moulin Rouge," and "Here's to Love." More recently, he sang at a charity event for UNICEF alongside singer Robbie Williams.

"I love it," says McGregor. "It's a rare thing that you get asked to sing, and it's just quite a ballsy thing to do, there's a great deal of courage involved getting up to sing live."

The "August: Osage County" star said he would welcome more opportunities to sing for the big screen, he recently starred in a stage production of the musical "Guys and Dolls" in London.

"It's a great, freeing thing to sing, I love it," said McGregor.
