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.

What’s with the hot Scottish guys showing up the past few years? He even looks a bit like his fellow good-looking Scot, Gerry Butler.

# 9

He got me convinced!

mmhmm yummy
can’t wait till Friday!

OMG…cannot wait till Fri to see Wanted.
James & Ang & Morgan & special freakin’ effects!!!!

YES!!!!!!! nice summer

I will watch Wanted on Friday with my husband to support Angie, James, Morgan & the rest of the crew.
Everybody who worked & met Angie only have positive things to say about her. She is the real deal, very down to earth. God bless.

Lucky guy. He had his way with Jolie AND Knightley xD.

!4th!!! He is a cute guy, and I love his eyes. How honest is he anyway with all that about his abs and his breath. Very refreshing. I will watch his movies for sure.

he’s really cute. :)

he’s adorable. love him!

He seems a really nice guy, and I liked the part about the tabloids shaping an artificial picture. I am sure this is not true for Angelina, but for all celebs, though for her probably th most, because people tend to have such a love-hate emotional connection to her personality as portrayed by the press. Sometimes people forget that it’s all second hand information and that non of us can really say which character traits a celeb has.

If you have a second to spare, I’d like to invite you to my new blog about stylish design for kids :):)

As time passes by James looks more like my idol Gerard Butler.
The great difference between them is in… the mouth and height. Gerry has the most sexy and beautiful mouth God had ever created, and he’s 6,2….
But I like James a lot… he has beautiful eyes and is so talented..

im obsessed with him xD

He is a talented actor and married someone about 9 or 10 years older. He sounds very nice. I could hardly wait to see Wanted this Saturday, since Friday I have to work. Thank you Jared that I read the interview about Angie too.

ewwww he is ****** looking. i am not a huge jolie fan, but feel sorry she had to kiss this thing.

he looks like the guy that works at the local repair shop. does this one have teeth?

He is not handsome at all, but seems sweet. I just don’t get that same hot Gerry Butler vibe at all from JM.

Sorry James, Gerard Butler is sexier.

we luf u xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
3 more days till wanted
