Tracy Morgan, Liev Schreiber and Ewan McGregor Chat with Betty!
These gorgeous dads talk kids, going green and Angelina Jolie.
Tracy Morgan with BettyConfidential’s Carrie Seim
BettyConfidential just spent a steamy night with three studly super stars. Wiling away the wee hours with 30 Rock comedian Tracy Morgan, Angels & Demons star Ewan McGregor and Salt scene-stealer Liev Schreiber is a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it.
These gorgeous guys were united Tuesday not just by good looks and otherworldly talent, but by their deep passion for all things green. They were joined by Gossip Girl’s Michelle Trachtenberg, 90210’s Rumer Willis and socialite Tinsley Mortimer for the all-star “Darker Side of Green” global warming debate.
While hanging with the guys, we learned some fun “green” facts about all of them. Who knew Tracy is an expert at growing his own vegetables and fishing? (Skills his father taught him so he’d never go hungry). Or that Ewan constantly nags his kids not to leave faucets running while brushing their teeth? (Even yelling sounds charming in Ewan-speak: ‘You don’t have to run the taps all the time!”). Or that Liev’s kids had tons of playdates with Angelina Jolie’s kids on the set of Salt? (Nothing to do with the environment. Awesome, nonetheless).
We caught up the gang at the Bowery Hotel in New York City and asked them to share the most unusual things they ever recycled.
“A woman,” Tracy tells BettyConfidential, not missing a beat. “Oh yes, I had this girl who had me comin’ back for more – she was like sweet bear meat.”
(He also boasts of growing his own watermelons, but comes out strongly against the new Japanese watermelon strollers. “You wanna end my career?” he jokes.)
Tracy says he and his 30 Rock castmates work hard to stay green on set, and he is a strict recycler at home. But he feels fortunate not to have to mix his two worlds. “With my kids, there is no pressure to be funny,” he says. “I’m just dad.”
And Tracy, decked out in an enormous “#1 Dad” diamond necklace, had some parental advice for jailbird La Lohan: “Get it together, Lindsay.”
