James McAvoy - "Details" August 2008

James McAvoy -

Scottish stud James McAvoy gives a brooding, intense look on the August 2008 cover for Details magazine, on newsstands next week. Here are some of the highlights from the Wanted star’s interview:

On wanting to be the next Sexiest Man Alive: “I want to be like Matt Damon and do a hugely successful thinking-man’s action franchise like Bourne.”

On the types of movies he likes to star in: “Hugh Grant is f—ing great and he’s funny. I like romantic comedies. I’ve been in one and I f—ing loved it. I got to show off and I got to be a d—. It’s always fun to play d—. That’s why I loved Last King (of Scotland) —I got to be such a wanker.”

On being cast in Wanted alongside Angelina Jolie: “I think inside all actors, there’s a kid who secretly yearns to jump off buildings and say ‘Yippeekayay, motherf—er!’ I also thought that the fact that they were willing to cast someone like me showed a willingness to step outside the usual action-movie realm.”

Bale’s cover was better, but McAvoy seems so down to earth and genuine.

James did a good job in the movie along side Angelina. Bet he was very intimidated.

I love him! He’s adorable sheep's wool @ 07/08/2008 at 11:38 am

I love him!! He is such a cutey!!


What the F have they done to him on this cover? :(

Amazing actor. Great cover!

LOL at the headling for Details—James McAvoy made out with Angelina and YOU didn’t! haha

Very good good Actor, loved him in Wanted. Does anyone know how much money have this movie made so far. Good luck to Brad and Angelia also, their babies must be due any day now.

His head seems so big for his body. Too short. He over did it on the F-words.

I hope someone tells next time not to give away a BIG spoiler in an interview. This was even before the movie WANTE came out.

YEEEEAH! I’m glad James is FINALLY getting some recognition and is getting his chance to ***** it around (lol) on all these magazine covers! Good for him! I’ve been a big fan of his for a while, so I’m glad to see he’s getting his chance to finally go big.

What? I can’t say “W-H-O-R-E IT AROUND”???


I don’t understand. Wanted came out in June so shouldn’t this magazine came out in June. Instead this cover is for August.

Magazines always put out an issue early. This came out in July so it’s for August and so on.

I love James, his eyes are what keeps me hooked.

Is it me or he looks quite skinny ? He seems to have lost the muscles he gained for Wanted. He look good but fragile
