Comedian Mike Myers, the voice of Scottish movie ogre Shrek, came out on Wednesday against the country splitting from Britain ahead of its independence referendum in September. Myers, whose other creations include "Austin Powers" and "Wayne's World", joins stars such as author J. K. Rowling and singer David Bowie in opposing independence.
