James McAvoy is a Wanted Hobbit

James McAvoy is a Wanted Hobbit

James McAvoy attends the film premiere of Wanted at the Mann Village Westwood Theater on Thursday in Los Angeles, California.

The 29-year-old actor was accompanied by his wife, Anne-Marie Duff, 37. The couple met while filming Shameless and was married in October 2006.

James has recently denied reports he is to take the lead role in the new movie version of Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit.

“I’m going to not act for a little while and take some space and take some time — and make some ‘me’ time, you know, all that rubbish,” he explained to Radio 1.

“It’s not true,” he said of the The Hobbit rumors. “It’s come off the internet and turned into a story for some reason. There’s not even been a script yet.”

James was also on The Tonight Show yesterday, check that out here.

    james = love.

  • irma

    Can’t wait to see ‘Wanted”. He was at Jay Leno last night. The red carpet will be more exciting if Brad & Angie were there but as very pregnant Angie can’t make it, I guess JM is fine to promote the movie but still I am definitely be watching “Wanted” to support Angie. The trailers are all very good & the reviews are all great. God bless.

  • anustin

    eh grandma irma!

  • Sorry

    I really like him, but Wanted just looks stupid. But that’s just me.

    It seems that he has at least been approached for a role in The Hobbit. Otherwise, how would he know that there wasn’t even a script, yet?
    I would like him as Bilbo. He has a good face for the role, and he has the right physical proportions to play the little guy. But he would need to put on a few pounds to appear more ‘hobbity’.

  • legs

    he’s kinda cute.
    i can’t wait for this movie.

  • lol

    Lol, James wont ever accept the role of a hobbit, he thinks highly of himself , will not accept he is a short guy!!!!

  • soopx

    Looks like a good Movie.I will go see it when it opens here in my hometown.Looking Forward to this Movie.

  • I like him

    he kinda favors Tobey McGuire.

    I am looking forward to watch that movies. I like all the actors in it and adores my girl Angie.

  • annie

    His wife is old and homely, not surprising, James is homely, too and short!

  • irma

    Hi anustin, good morning. I’m counting the days till the big event on June 27. See you all in the theater. Go out & watch ‘Wanted”. It will be an awesome movie. God bless the Jolie-Pitt’s.

  • stellartes

    He looks like a young brother of Gerry Butler.



  • stefanie

    Love him. A bit short for me, but in the horizontal mambo, it don’t make a difference.

    Going to see the movie for him, not Angie.

  • nikomilinko
  • condi

    I like this guys.This movie looks great. I am going to se it.

  • la la la

    95 degrees yesterday and the guy is wearing all black and a leather jacket. what is up with Hollywood stars bundling up in this heatwave?

  • um

    James has the lead. Angelina does not need to be at any premiere since she’s not the star. Besides, all over, the posters feature her on them. That’s more than enough.

  • daisy

    he is hot. his wife looks like his mother.

  • Dang

    la la la @ 06/20/2008 at 11:04 am 95 degrees yesterday and the guy is wearing all black and a leather jacket. what is up with Hollywood stars bundling up in this heatwave?

    It’s the freaking meat locker air conditiong that californians love so much. Freaking 32 degrees it feels like. You have to bring your coat.
    Euopeans don’t like Air conditioning and neither do I. Put it high enough to cool and circulate the air but not to make ice cubes.


    I met him last Nov at a screening for Atonement. He is adorable in person and such a nice man. Apparently he’s taking a couple years off so he can decompress from the attention he’s been getting as of late and spend time on ‘him’.

    I wish him much more success!

  • queenbee

    I miss my Angie… :(

  • he needs to be bilbo…

    I love James, he’s such a cutey!! It’s so sweet of him to bring his mom to the premiere!!

  • Helena

    He’s so hot. Variety said that after watching him in Wanted, he can just about do anything. They are so right.

  • Regina

    Can you people stop mentioning Angelina Jolie? This thread is for James McAvoy. You people are too obsessed.

  • what?

    I MET HIM @ 06/20/2008 at 11:21 am I met him last Nov at a screening for Atonement. He is adorable in person and such a nice man. Apparently he’s taking a couple years off so he can decompress from the attention he’s been getting as of late and spend time on ‘him’.

    I wish him much more success!


    What attention? Who does he think he is? Brad Pitt?

    The short man is full of himself, its not like he is being hounded by the paps.!

  • Jessica

    Love him & can’t wait for Wanted!

  • Luinecu

    Rocking his outfit, but I’m not liking the short hair (who am I kidding, he still looks good)…

    Anne-Marie really hasn’t photographed well here, she’s beautiful on film *shrug* adored her in Shameless. They always look happy together.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    i see james has a couple jolie fans on his side – that wont last to long. watch when they turn, and he gets put on the HUGE j/p shiit list. lmaoo

    he’ll carry wanted. it should be very good.

  • lol

    He looks hot – as per – and, for him, looks very tanned- lmoa!
    Sadly, his wife looks like a dog – WOOF :(

  • Lora

    I love him, he is an amazing actor and he’s done so well for himself.

  • condi

    In Famous,you are idot as always

    We never bash any of Angie’s co stars.

  • cece

    His wife is so lucky. I don’t think she looks that bad. Besides younger guys are starting to date older women. My brother in-law has an older wife he’s 28 and she’s 37. She did lie about her age though. It’s only a number.

  • geniass

    Can’t wait to see the movie!!!

  • Jennifer

    #12, I totally agree. James and Gerry Butler need to play brothers in a movie at some point. sometimes they look so alike, it’s freaky haha

  • lia

    I agree that James can play just about any role. I really like him as an actor, Morgan Freeman too,…and I love Angelina.

    Very excited about this movie.

  • layla

    He is a brilliant actor. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he’s gorgeous and has the most beautiful eyes..

  • sunnykidstyle

    He’s a great actor, though I’m not sure Wanted will be my type of movie. The short hair definitely suits him, he should keep it that way. Never knew he was married and that his wife was so many years older than him. They look nice together.

    Oh, and by the way, if you have a second to spare, please visit my new blog about stylish design for kids and feel free to give me some feedback. I’d really appreciate it :):)

  • sweet pea

    Check out that bulge……..HOT!!!!

  • http://justjared Victoria

    40th!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love his eyes. He is so cute!!!!!!!!!! A very talented actor. Hope he doesn’t take alot of time off. Sometimes when you are on top, that is not a wise choice.

  • gail

    I dont see the fascination in him same with Orly Bloom and Ryan Gosling.

    Being Short or tall is something you can not change. James is 5’7″, and so are:

    Kurt Cobain
    Tom Cruise
    Salvador Dali
    Rosario Dawson
    Bo Diddley
    Robert Downey
    Amelia Earhart
    Emilio Estevez
    Jane Fonda
    Audrey Hepburn
    Martina Hingis
    Angelina Jolie
    Maynard James Keenan (singer for bands: A Perfect Circle, Tool)
    Keira Knightley
    Al Pacino

    And many others. Napoleon was even shorter. Or Danny De Vito.

    James McAvoy is a good actor. His physical fact is something he can not change. As long as his film is good, I really don’t give a ****!

    Somebody can be tall and a lousy actor. Ben Affleck (6’3″), is an example. A good director, handsome stunning guy, but a lousy actor!

  • rien

    Correction; Robert Downey Jr is (5’7″), not Robert Downey Sr (5’9″)

  • vivi hau

    i do luv james!
    he looks awesome.
    whatever he acted as hobbit or not <3

  • joey

    James is such a fucking hottie I cant even explain it I cant wait till Wanted comes out it looks awesome! Hes just too beautiful for words lol

  • macordovil

    I’d like to see James and Gerard Butler together in a movie…
    Oh!!! What an adorable accent they have. God, make my wish come true, please!

  • olga.t

    I know it’s a bad thing to say, but his wife is soooo ugly.. my God!

  • Anon27

    He looks like he’s related to Gerard Butler.

  • lol

    sweet pea #39,

    which bulge are you referring to? He doesn’t look like he has a ‘pot’ (belly) to me, so I’m guessing you mean his crotch bulge??!!
    If you are, so good of you to notice, roflmao!! :D ;)
