James McAvoy's BAFTA Tea Party

James McAvoy's BAFTA Tea Party

James McAvoy and British actress wife Anne-Marie Duff attend the BAFTA/LA 2008 Awards Season Tea Party held on Saturday at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

McAvoy, 28, and Duff first met while filming Shameless, an offbeat British comedy drama television series. The couple celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary last October.

    i remember when he was in “don’t tell mum the babysitter is dead” as the hotdog boyfriend of Christina Applegate’s character. He was dorky back then but in a cute way.

  • debora

    I simply love him in the Atonement . But it is such a sad movie =/

  • lol

    CUTENESS!! He’s starting to look really bored of flogging his film in the US. It’s not a blockbuster, so it must take A LOT MORE EFFORT over there :(

  • Patty

    Yes, he’s married… I just have to face the hard reality and move on ^_^…

    Anyways, James and his wife make a good-looking couple (I read she’s like 9 years his senior but there’s no age for love, right? I think she looks nice and little bit younger, what do you think?).

    First wedding anniversary! Best wishes and cheers to them ^_^!

    Thank you for the pics!

  • KiKI

    I really love him in Atonement. Hope he’ll make lots of movies in the future. I’m ambivalent with him being married and all, I like him to be happy with someone but I like that someone to be somewhat Keira Knightley.

  • Julie

    I hope he’s with Keira Knightley. They really look good in Atonement. But his wife is not bad after all. Maybe she got a nice personality.

  • Cee

    James McAvoy is such a hottie. I love him in atonement.

  • Lori

    He looks like a more rugged Tobey Maguire. From what I have seen he has a great personality.

  • Cindy

    Keira Knightley should dye her hair blonde. Looks like James McAvoy like blonde.

  • Kelly

    James Mcavoy is cute. I like him with some facial hair goin’.

    I congratulate all the cast of Atonement for winning the GG as BEST PICTURE DRAMA.

  • Jamz

    Thanks Jared for posting another article of James McAvoy. I can’t really get enough of him.

  • Keira

    They’re cute!

  • Booby

    James McAvoy should have win best actor in GG.

    james wasnt in dont tell mom, the actors name is josh charles…hes been in a couple of small supporting roles, they kinda of look alike i guess
    just wanted to tell you ;)

  • Julianne

    I think he hates doing publicity and award shows. He always looks bored and annoyed. He actually does say he doesn’t like it in interviews. Although he looks kinda happy there. Maybe because his wife is with him this time. Anyways, congrats on Atonement winning Best Picture-Drama!!!!

  • J

    I remember first seeing him in Children of Dune, then in Chronicles of Narnia. He’s such a wonderful actor. Hope to see him in many more films in the near future.

    #2, Though the actors resemble each other a bit, it was Josh Charles that played that particular character in “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead”.

  • Cynthia

    Love this guy, he was awesome in Last King of Scotland. I will always remember him from that movie.

  • Saltire Flower

    Ah, they are adorable together! I’m so glad Atonement was recognized at the Golden Globes, it is truly an brilliant and hauting film and hands down the best of 2007.

  • sexymf

    I cannot believe he married his Shameless costar…I had no idea they were dating let alone married. Shameless is one of the funniest British series I’ve ever seen. It’s a fantastic show and I became a huge fan of James McAvoy because of that show. His wife was also brilliant as well.

  • bumblebee

    i thought he wasn’t married… :(

  • Shango_Hispanico

    His wife got better looking. She was fug as hell..

    She must have a great personality..

    But I love him in Last King of Scotland too.. He was so damn naughty!!

    He is so gorgeous! He was awesome with Kerry Washington, Keira Knightly and he will be with Angeline Jolie… I LOVE THIS MAN!!

  • lily

    I love James McAvoy. He was deliciously good in Becoming Jane and he’s just a wonderful actor with a grounded personality. Although I am sad he’s already married, and I hope he is happy – and as for marrying someone older, look at Hugh Jackman! Who also married someone from his early days TV series co-star, who’s quite a few years senior to him, but supremely happy! Fairytales do exist.

  • boo

    the bafta/ LA tea party???? sounds like sh-t. why do the brits want to be recognized over here so badly anyway? no other awards show has promo parties in the states. makes bafta look desperate…
    this kid was good in atonement, KKnightley annoyed the hell out of me.

  • angelina_mmm

    they look like brother and sister

  • remember da truth

    Oh, so glad to see people on the board that are literate, know what they are talking about, and understand movies! Oh yeah, they are BRITISH! LOL!!
    Yes, James was fantastic in Atonement, and I, too, am surprised and a little silly-sad to see him married, but so happy for him to be happy! I agree, he is an artist so doesn’t like all the hoopla. He is so talented and I can’t wait to see more of him. He is so HOT in Atonement, too! Makes total sense he’d have a wife older than he is — women in their 20′s are not nearly as together as he is.

    For the information of the ignorant person who didn’t understand why BAFTA would have a tea party in LA — there are lots of British stars here right now as the movies are in fast production because of the writers’ strike, and it’s award season here in LA. The world doesn’t end at the US borders, and movies are an art form that is not limited to the US.

  • Katherine

    Hope The Academy award will happen. I always want to see all the glamour of celebrities when they attend awards show.

    Love he’s performance in Atonement.

    Congratulation to the cast for winning Best Picture in Golden Globes.

  • Sarah

    I’m glad he didn’t win the Golden Globes because I don’t want him to receive his first GG and not going to attend the show.

    Though I love him as Robbie Turner. He’s such a magnificent actor.

    WTF? He wasn’t in that. He’s never been in anything with Christian Applegate.

    I was so sad when he and Anne-Marie left Shameless. They were so cute in it together.

  • ha-ha r u sure about that?

    For some reason, I still see him as that little half-man, half- beast in that fairytale movie. Not classically handsome one bit (he’s got a big nose), but give him kudos on his acting.

  • Faith

    James did amazing in Atonement, the movie its self was wonderfully written and i think that both actors did great, but James has done great in every role he has been put in, like Rory O’Shea where he was handicap was great he portrayed it well, and Last King Of Scotland well anyone who is acting so well as a passed out person and ACTUALLY passes out and no one knows b/c he always acts like his actually passed out is just a great actor. but all in all James is amazing and well i dont know his wife but as long as she makes James happy i guess :)

  • jen

    he makes me melt. so sad he’s married haha. only in my dreams…
