Mcavoy Is Mistaken For Mcgregor
JAMES MCAVOY is often mistaken for fellow Scottish actor EWAN MCGREGOR - because they have identical accents.
The Atonement actor's heavy Scottish brogue often confuses Americans - and when they discover where he hails from, many presume he is Trainspotting star MCGregor.
MCAvoy says, "Even now, in America, people will go, 'Hey, I didn't know you were Irish.' You go, 'I'm not.' They go, 'What? Where are you from? Australia?' What?
"People hear your accent and go, 'Are you Ewan MCGregor?' I look nothing like him."
