We need to give thanks to Nylon Magazine for this gorgeous James McAvoy spread!! He is featured in the magazines March 2010 edition.
The handsome star of Wanted and Atonement opens up about his humble beginnings in the projects, being an emotional kid, and how rebelling against gangs led him to acting.
The 30-year-old born was born in Glasgow and raised in the city of Drumchapel after his parents split. He describes the area where he grew up in as the “projects with a bit of green.”
I grew up in a bad area,” he says. “But it’s difficult; I don’t want to sit here and dis it because that’s where I’m from, know what I mean? Yes, there are beatings and muggins and all that stuff, but you have them anywhere. There’s actually good things about Drumchapel, as well.”
Reading about his emotional side really made me want to give him a massive hug!
I was very sensitive. Cried easy. Enjoyed crying from an early age, he offers. “Ehm, no in public. On my own. I think I recognized its therapeutic qualities early on. And then as I came into my teenage years, it became very handy ’cause I could wallow about my lack of girlfriend or general cool or mystique.”
