Scottish actor James McAvoy has always loathed sharing sex scenes with Hollywood elites like Keira Knightley (Atonement) and Angelina Jolie (Wanted). In a new interview, McAvoy says that simulated humping is a thousand times more anxiety-inducing than regular humping.
“You wake up in the morning and you’re like, ‘Oh no, I’ve got a spot on my bum,’ or you’re in the middle of a scene and you’re like, ‘Oh no, is my breath weird?’ or, ‘Oh, no. She’s nice but does she think I’m trying to cop a feel?’ But I’m really not, I’m just trying to do my job,” he told Britain’s Marie Claire.
James also thinks he is generally weird-looking with a “wonky face” and “pasty” skin.
This isn’t the first time he’s downplayed his appearance and spoken about movie sex.
In 2008, the X-Men: First Class star said he has daunting nightmares about his sensual performances because he isn’t exactly “a matinee idol.”
…Way to spit in the faces of all the women who wanted the fawn in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to buy them a drink.
