Mcavoy: 'I Feel Sorry For Knightley And Bloom'

Actor JAMES MCAVOY pities KEIRA KNIGHTLEY and ORLANDO BLOOM for becoming major Hollywood stars at such a young age. The 27-year-old's performance in this year's (07) THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND has been touted as Oscar worthy, but he's glad he didn't land such an important role earlier as he wouldn't have been able to cope with the attention. He admits, "If I was suddenly crowned a major movie star at 21, which is what happened to Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, I don't think I could cope. I feel sorry for those guys because they've had no time to build any experience or skills. "You suddenly have to be good. You also have no training in how to deal with what you have become."
