"I mean, look at the guy. I have to say, he is a great kisser," People mag quoted Carrey, 48, as telling Parade of his smooches with McGregor. That's not to say Carrey, who plays an incarcerated man who falls in love with a fellow inmate, wasn't warned about potential problems with kissing a man.
"As Ewan said, 'When you're kissing another guy it can get a little prickly,'" Carrey said. "Actually, you had to put out of your mind your own sexual preference and just try to understand that you were loving another person who just happens to be a guy. It wasn't about male or female, love is love," he added.
