Ewan McGregor has bluntly hit out at persistent rumours he had an affair with Moulin Rouge! co-star Nicole Kidman on the set of the blockbuster movie.

The British star - who is married to French designer EVE MAKRAKIS - has in the past rubbished reports of a romance on the set of the 2001 musical hit.

But he lost his temper when quizzed again by reporters at France's CANNES FILM FESTIVAL - where he is promoting new movie Young Adam.

Ewan told journalists, "I haven't f***ed Nicole. I am a married man. I haven't been personally involved with all my leading ladies. It would maybe somewhat glamorous if I had been but I have not."
