Actor Ewan McGregor collected an OBE at Buckingham Palace today for services to drama and charity.
Wearing a kilt, the Scot said it had never been in doubt that he would come to the Palace in traditional garb.
He said: "I didn't have to think about it, that was always what I was going to wear. If you don't wear your kilt here, I don't know where you are going to wear it."
He also spoke about the possibility of returning to the role of Mark "Rent Boy" Renton, whom he played in director Danny Boyle's 1996 classic Trainspotting.
"I have not been approached officially, but I would be up for it and there has been talk about it happening in 2016, 20 years after we did Trainspotting.
"The sequel is called Porno, so I have to be careful about saying I am doing Porno in 2016."
But he ruled himself out of returning to the part of young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the new Star Wars sequel trilogy because the films he took part in were prequels.
In attendance with two of his four daughters and wife, McGregor also praised the volunteers at Unicef and Go Campaign, the children's charities he supports.
"The volunteers live and work in really difficult places - they are the people who should be awarded," he said.
