James McAvoy brings the Scottish Thunder to UK premiere: would you shag it?

Oh my lord. These are the best photos we’ve had of James McAvoy in a long time. See, I don’t really mind his wild ginger beard and I don’t mind when he has long, shaggy hair either. But I do tend to forget how boyishly handsome and dead-sexy he is when he’s all cleaned up and shaved and in a suit. SHAG ME!! SHAG ME, James!!! *tosses panties at Scotland*

Anyway, these are photos from last night’s London premiere of Filth, James’ increasingly critically-acclaimed new film based on the book by Irvine Welsh. James’ wife was not at the premiere, and he posed a lot with his blonde sister, Joy McAvoy. I only included one pic of her though. Because there were so many attractive photos of James, I just wanted to make it more James-centric. Sweet McAvoy. Such a sexy beast. He’s like the Scottish Paul Newman with those blue bedroom eyes.

James has been doing a lot of press to promote Filth as well, and here’s an assortment of quotes:

He drank to forget his disturbed character: “I drank a hell of a lot of whisky and that helped me get out of character. But in the morning, I had such a headache that it helped me get into character, so that was good.”

Confronting mental illness: “No matter how horrible Bruce gets, or how abusive he gets or how bigoted he gets, we know he’s sick. We’re not condoning his behaviour, we’re condemning it actually, the film condemns him. But we’re still asking you to feel something for him, because he’s a human being.”

James doesn’t want to be away from his wife Anne-Marie Duff and their three-year-old son Brendan: “Family is really important to me and when a role comes along, you have to weigh up whether it’s worth going overseas for… But an X-Men movie is definitely a time to go abroad because it’s a big one and it potentially guarantees work for me for the next few years… The fact that I did X-Men: First Class meant I could then do some theatre because I knew I’d have the next X-Men film coming up.”

[From The Scottish Daily Record & The Express]

I didn’t know/had forgotten that James’ son is named Brendan. Brendan McAvoy. That’s nice, and over here in America, I don’t hear the name Brendan very often. I imagine is sounds better when said with a Scottish accent. Anyway… James seems like a really decent guy. I hope I don’t have to eat those words one day, but for now I’m fine saying that James seems like a family man and a really sweetheart.

    YES! And I get him first because I cared enough to be here before anyone else. You ladies can have what’s left when I’m done.

  2. Anna says:

    Shag it like the carpet I’d do it on!

  3. Allons-y Alonso says:

    nnnawwwww! He’s just so adorable. I can’t wait to see Filth.

  4. blue marie says:

    oh yes, on the regular.

  5. Tiffany27 says:

    Repeatedly. I would hit it REPEATEDLY.

  6. j.eyre says:

    I would take Fanty’s leftovers, repurpose them with whiskey and ginger beard and devour them like a wolverine to its prey.

  7. CaribbeanLaura says:

    I hit it and then proclaim it to the world. James Mac is one my top five list for sure!!!!!

  8. Vesta says:

    “Blue bedroom eyes”

    Mmmmm…that is a correct description. After yesterday’s shortage of (my kind of) eye candy men these suit pics make me think all kind of Filthy things…

  9. RocketMerry says:

    What I especially love about him is the fact that he seems so sweet and loyal and attentive to his family! I can’t even begin to describe just how much that impresses me.

    As always, I’ll go see all his films (or at least, those that will come out in theatres over here in “nothing-ever-happens” land).

  10. Maria says:

    No because he’s happily married and that ruins the illusion for me, lol.

    I like him with the gray tho.

    Maybe after a few pints and shots I’d throw my morals out the window. Now, should Fassy marry, my celeb fangurling heart will be crushed.

    /I’m sure my beau would be semi relieved since anytime a preview comes on, I feel him side eyeing me 😉

  11. briargal says:

    Yes, yes, and yes again. Now this is someone you should have on this site more often than Cumby, Kaiser! Wow! Sorry, don’t mean to pick on your Cumby!

    MY SCOTTISH KING! <3 <3 <3

  13. Jayna says:

    Bye, dear. I’m off to shag me some Scottish Thunder. The takeout menus are by the fridge. Don’t wait up. It’s going to be a long, hard night.

  14. Tig says:

    He is such a great actor. And I applaud his candor regarding “X men” salaries and other roles. There was an article out last week re him saying he’s the one folks go to when they can’t get/afford Ewen McGregor. While I’m sure that’s a total joke, thought it said a lot about his sense of humor!

  15. Kiki says:

    As much I love this ice cream sandwich. But I would love an ice cream sundae with the young Magneto anyday.

    But can anyone tell me, not that I am complaining, but can anyone tell me what is Michael Fassbender’s angle with Black women?

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      What do you mean?

      It was on this site, when Fassdong was doing press for Shame, but someone asked him what attracts him. And he he said something along the lines of ‘physically, I’m attracted to darker skin…’.

      He doesn’t just date black women. I know his crazy ex was half/part Indian, so I think he just wants to date women that aren’t as pale as he is.

      But I don’t get why people call it a fetish or whatever. We don’t hear any of that about actors who only date white women. Not even Leo–I’ve heard it described as weird that he only dates young, blonde models but never that he has a fetish for young, blonde women.

      Hope that clears it up.

  16. Yellowshaba says:

    Love him, he’s an outstanding actor. One of the few actors i will watch anything he’s in without question, and i have.

  17. mom2two says:

    Yes! More McAvoy, less Fassbender, Cumberbatch and Hiddleston.
    James Mc Avoy could always get it from me 🙂

  18. grabbyhands says:

    Aww, I admit-by Scottish Thunder I was hoping you meant he wore a kilt to the premiere. Don’t get me wrong-he’s still adorbs. But damn, I love me a man in a kilt.

  19. posh-toes says:

    I loved him in Wanted. I read Filth years ago and it’s disgusting. If my memory serves, it is told from the perspective of the guy’s tape worm. Yuck1

  20. Green is Good says:

    Oh my God, I fell out of chair when whomever wrote “toss my panties at Scotland”!

    Smells like a political movement . Panty it out, bitchez!

  21. Regina Lynx says:

    Oh my God, those eyes in the 3rd last picture say either

    “Take off them panties. The party has arrived.”


    “Your ovaries. I have them.”

    I really haven’t decided yet.

  22. miriam says:

    Love him!!!

  23. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Man…I think I’m a convert. Never was a fan of his but he’s been looking AMAZING lately.

  24. Melissa says:

    He is so attractive even when he looks scruffy he just exudes charisma

  25. tealily says:

    Love him. Love him love him, since the Shameless days. He and Anne-Marie seem like class acts.

  26. ichsi says:

    Abso-beeping-lutely! He’s so beautiful and smart and funny and sweet and… hhhhhhh. I’m generally against polygamy but Anne-Marie is awesome and even if he is short as hell, he’s man enough for two women. I wouldn’t mind to share!
