But honestly, that man needs to be bumped up to the top 10, if not the top 5. I was all down for that after seeing him as the new face of Prada, but now I’m getting vocal about it after seeing him on the cover of Nylon Guys‘ September issue.
Not only does he look way hot (hello, eyebrow), but there he was, in the interview, being all adorable again and talking about playing “proper mental cases.”
Which he’s done quite a lot of recently. As James put it, “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.”
But now? Well James is the one with the fireworks. “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.” But you’re so good at it!
Honestly, I’d pay to watch James McAvoy watch paid dry. Imagine his facial expressions. Michael Fassbender can be there too. Check out more of what James has to say in the September issue of Nylon Guys, on stands now. And launch the gallery for even more James hotness. Come on, you know you wanna.
