James McAvoy: Potty mouth

Who knew he was THIS filthy?

Reasons to love James McAvoy: Tremendous actor. Smart. Low-key. Generally a nice guy.

Also (and less well-know): Very good sport. Filthy sense of humour… 

Exhibit A, our film below. But first, a little background (paraphrased email thread).

ELLE: Dear James McAvoy, will you let us film you taking the p**s out of Miss Piggy?

JM: Sure. What do you want me to do?

ELLE: Cool. Anything.

JM: Give me some ideas.

ELLE: OK, how about you pretend to like her but get caught on camera saying you don’t. Or act like you really fancy her or something?

JM: OK

He did both. Option one made it into the final cut of the film. Option two was so disgusting we spat our tea onto the keyboard then named him Actor We Would Most Like To Play Drinking Games With. Plus - kudos for how he wields that salami.

Transcript: “Um, so she looked at me over her shoulder. And she said, ‘F**k me like a pig’. [chews salami]. I’m a married man. But… [waves salami] that piece of bacon got fried. Know what I mean?”

You’re welcome!

James is “filthy” and hilarious, as always!

BRYAN SINGER: I asked James McAvoy something and I’ll ask you too. You know he can be very emotional, and in X-Men: Days of Future Past he has very emotional moments. So one night we were out at dinner and I asked him, “What do you think of when you’re crying?” The layman always assumes that you’re calling up some tragedy in your past or some very, very sad thought. But he said it was mostly, 99 percent of the time, that the character is sad and he allows himself to be sad for the character.

Just a reminder about the Jameson Empire Awards 2014: we can vote for James as Best Actor, Filth as Best British Film and Trance as Best Thriller.

It’s all up to us, McAvoyeurs. James was snubbed by the biggest and most important award show in his own country, but we, his fans from all over the world can still have our say now, and give the recognition James and his films deserve.

Bill Hader talks a little about The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby beginning at 1:57, and it’s really lovely what he has to say about James:

"Most of my scenes are with James McAvoy who I can’t say enough nice things about. He’s like one of the most beautiful human beings in the planet. He’s such a great great guy. Great great guy… He’s awesome." 

We couldn’t agree more, Bill.
