‘He’s a proper gentleman. Yeah, he plays hard as hell, but he works really hard and gives everybody respect. There’s something quite old-school about Michael, and I love him dearly.’-James McAvoy (X)
I met James McAvoy yesterday! This man undoubtedly appreciated his fans and has his head (and ego) screwed on the right way! It’s lovely and refreshing to see!
He took time to sign and take photos for everybody even those in the back row. He would happily retake photos if need be and engaged in conversation with you like there was no rush whatsoever! :’)
It was perfect.
[On his grandparents] You know, they never told me, “You can be whatever that you want to be” because I think they felt - and I feel - that that’s a lie, nobody can be whatever they want to be. No kid can do whatever they want to do. It’s a total lie, but they have the right to try to do whatever they want to do. That’s their right, to aim to do whatever they want to do. And you know what? Life might kick you in the face, life might not let you do what you want to do, but they always taught me that, you know, “Go for it! Yeah, you wanna do that? Go for it, son, you’ve gotta do it.”
