James McAvoy shows off his piercing blue eyes in this brand new feature from Esquire UK‘s April 2013 issue, featuring cover girl Rachel Weisz.
Here is what the 33-year-old Welcome To The Punch actor had to share with the mag:
On being a geek at heart: “I am a nerd but I don’t dive head-first into any fiefdom of nerdiness, except for maybe Star Trek.”
On his new film Welcome to the Punch: “Don’t get me wrong. I love British cinema, but there’s also a place for ostentatious, balls-out entertainment.”
On the skill of playing audiences: “Big year, really, for me, in terms of getting to play somebody that challenges the audience more than I have done in the past. As an actor, you’ve got to try and make the audience like you, even if you’re doing bad things. I quite like that dynamic.”
The full interview appears in the April issue of Esquire UK, on newsstands now, and is also available as a digital edition!
