Mcavoy's Beating For Playing Dead
Movie heart-throb JAMES MCAVOY scared his family as a child, by pretending he was dead. The Scottish star of The Last King of Scotland and Atonement, convinced his eight-year-old sister he was really his own ghost during a creepy game of hide-and-seek. MCAvoy reveals, "I said, 'I'm not James, I'm James' ghost.' "So my grandmother comes running upstairs, finds me laughing my head off, and beats the living hell out of me."
