Mcavoy Slams Fame-hungry Stars
JAMES MCAVOY is disgusted when he sees fellow thespians spread over the pages of glossy magazines, insisting stars who court fame are "not actors to me".
The Atonement star refuses to become a regular fixture on the Hollywood party circuit because he fears the public will become more interested his personal life than his acting ability.
And MCAvoy hates seeing his Hollywood colleagues swarm to red carpet events or reveal too much about themselves in interviews.
He says, "There comes a point where, you just cant watch an actor without I just know so much about them. So how can I accept them in a role? There are just some people, theyre not actors to me. Theyre chip paper. Just glossy paper.
If Im in a film, or a telly, or a play, then why should people come and see it? Because you know, they can just pick up some f***ing rubbish magazine, and see me in that.
