Is Ewan McGregor religious?

While promoting his film “Last Days in the Desert,” where McGregor played Jesus, he told The Daily Beast, “I’m not a religious person. I’m married to a Jewish woman, so my children are Jewish, and my involvement in religion has more to do with the Jewish faith now and not the Christian faith, which I was very vaguely brought up in.”

He continued, “My parents were not religious, but my school had prayers at morning assembly, with a clear-eyed gaze. So my early understanding of religion was the Protestant faith in Scotland. But my experience is no longer that.”
