Mcavoy Thanks Wife For Helping Him Believe In His Career

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.
