McGregor co-starred with Cosmo, a jack russell, on the set of his movie Beginners. He really bonded with Cosmo, who was a rescue dog himself, which inspired McGregor to adopt a dog of his own. His wife is allergic to dogs, but was able to adopt a poodle-terrier mix that was hypoallergenic. Named Sid, he got him through The Lange Foundation, a Los Angeles non-profit that rescues animals from kill shelters.

Ewan McGregor pets
McGregor has a soft spot for rescue dogs. After he co-starred with Cosmo, a Jack Russell rescue on Beginners, he went to adopt his own rescue dog. We wonder how much he offered Cosmo’s owner before admitting defeat and going to get his own rescue dog (joking, we think).
