For the unaware, shipping is a part of fandoms where two characters are imagined in a relationship, and it can exist for any pairing in any franchise. In Star Wars, there’s a few popular ones with one of the most popular being Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and actor Ewan McGregor has seen a lot of it.

Ewan McGregor keeps being sent Star Wars Rule 34

In an interview with GQ, via The Direct, McGregor discussed the lewd nature of fan mail that he is frequently sent. Amid letters, the actor is also sent lewd images of his incarnation of Obi-Wan Kenobi in sexual acts with Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker.

The actor noted that sometimes there is some clothing involved, albeit just some “leather”. However, for the most part, the two characters are in the buff, just going for it.

“Yeah, in leather flares and nothing else,” the actor explained. “There’s a lot of homoerotic Obi-Wan/Hayden [Christensen] fan art that gets sent to me now and again. I don’t know how it finds me. It’s always a bit of an eye-opener. You open the envelope, you think you’re going to have to sign something, and you’re like, ‘F---ing hell!’”

The actor didn’t go into detail on the worst — or best — pieces of lewd fan art he’d been sent, but it is a frequent occurrence. We wonder if that led to any on-set tension — romantic or otherwise — during McGregor and Christensen’s Obi-Wan reunion.

If it exists, there’s lewd art of it

Of course, lewd art exists of Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen. The two actors were an on-screen duo for two of the most popular movies of the early 2000s, and they had decent chemistry together.

The internet lives by a set of rules. One of those rules is: “If it exists, there is porn of it.” Well, as McGregor has confirmed, it doesn’t only exist, but it is plentiful.

It’s not impossible to imagine. In at least one of Infinite multiverses, those too be banging.
