James McAvoy has credited his actress wife ANNE MCAVOY for helping him believe in his acting abilities.
The Last King Of Scotland star admits he had a tough time at drama school and early in his career because he "felt like a fraud".
But MCAvoy concedes it was his wife who made him realise he was a good actor by giving his life some much-needed stability.
He says, "I felt a bit of a fraud because I always felt I'd fallen into acting. I was only doing it because someone had given me a job. For others it was their vocation. I felt I was lying to myself about what I wanted in life.
"It was Anne-Marie who taught me how to respect life and it took my career to a whole new level."
The couple married in 2006.
