James McAvoy: My Six Pack is Real!

James McAvoy: My Six Pack is Real!

James McAvoy continues to hype up his new action thriller, Wanted, in New York City on Monday.

The 29-year-old Scottish star recently talked to Parade about preparing for the film:

You get treated roughly by Angelina Jolie in this movie, but at least you got to kiss her. Yes, we have a big old snog. It was memorable for its awkwardness. It was our first day, and it was like, ‘Hey, how you doing? Are you all right? Yeah?’ ‘Action.’ ‘Oh, no. Here we go.’ So yeah, those things are always awkward. I had just come from having my way with Keira Knightley in that sex scene in the library in Atonement, which took a lot more takes. You’re usually more worried about the fact that your breath stinks from the lunch that you just had of garlic pasta, than whether you’ll have a good time.

So what’s Angelina really like? Working with her was cool. She’s a nice lady, nothing like the image from all the hype that follows her around and all the stories you read. I’m an actor, so I should know better, but you still can’t help but be influenced by the media about people that you’ve never met. Angelina was just completely different than anything I expected. I’ve got a lot of respect for her.

Were those muscles you display real? They were not a special effect. It was the result of a lot of time at the gym — which I hated. I was also trying to take these super protein supplements and they gave me incredible bouts of flatulence which wouldn’t have endeared me to the rest of the cast. But I’m back to normal. I haven’t worked out since the day, ten months ago, that I wrapped this.
