Let’s close out your week with some broody boy pretty. It’s what you need right now. Bathe in his intensity, darlings.
James McAvoy covers the September 2014 issue of Nylon Guys magazine photographed by Simon Emmett.
On his career: “For a long time, I was playing the normal guy in an exceptional world, or the normal guy who was in a relationship with someone much more weird and interesting. I was holding the audience’s hand, guiding them into a world they weren’t familiar with, keeping them onside when things got grotesque…basically I was letting everybody else do the fireworks.”
On his past roles: “The last two or three years have been so unlike what I was doing for the 10 years before them…. There’s a part I’ve been offered and really want to do, but I was worried about taking it because the character is a proper mental case. And I feel like it’s been a couple of years of solely playing mental cases,” says McAvoy citing roles in Welcome to the Punch, Trance, and Filth.
No one can furrow a brow like he can. But even he can’t make that horrifying hipster sweater work. Shame on you, Nylon. You don’t obscure the hot with shitty clothes.
On the other hand, thank you for the gun show.
