James McAvoy had celebrities sign his shirt and plans to auction it for charity


I may not make it through this post. For those of you who don’t know, I would crawl across broken glass to lay a finger on James McAvoy. So when I heard I might be able to own the tiniest bit of him, my brain short-circuited and I went blind for a moment. Having semi-recovered, let’s dig in, shall we?

McAvoy was hanging out backstage at the Oscars, after having presented the Best Sound editing with Danai Gurira (so much pretty on the stage). He was chilling, having a drink, probably wishing I was there, when he spied a red Sharpie lying on the floor. Looking around, he saw people like Samuel L. Jackson and Frances McDormand in the vicinity, so naturally he thought, “hey, why not get all these people to sign my chest?” And the result was this:

McAvoy suggested auctioning the shirt while he was speaking to Karamo Brown on the way in to the Vanity Fair after party. Let’s consider that for a moment. Washing the shirt would probably degrade the signatures. So McAvoy is going to peel the shirt from his torso and sell it to some lucky bidder for an amount that will go to charity. This is the definition of win-win. I know I should be grossed out by receiving a sweat-stained shirt in the mail, but it’s The Mac’s sweat and I want to believe it smells like well-aged whiskey and sex. Imagine the dreams I’d have sleeping in that thing. Somehow, I don’t think I’ll be able to sell the idea to my husband of liquidating the kids college funds to wrap myself in the The Mac’s pheromones.

Here’s the clip of McAvoy explaining how the Sharpiening happened. McAvoy asked Karamo to sign the shirt, after he explaine what a fan he is of Queer Eye. But watch how quickly Catt Sadler grabs that pen to get some as well:

Oh Sweet Jesus, what is this? McAvoy’s next project is His Dark Materials that stars Ruth Wilson. McAvoy plays Lord Asriel, a sexy academic explorer with snow leopard daemon. Watch the trailer and try to survive his smoldering gaze into the camera. Ah, screw it, I’ll homeschool my kids for college, I’m getting that shirt:

    LMAO at the “BIG” pointing down! Who “signed” that?

    • April Hurley says:

      And not to look creep or pervert (at all!), but if I had that shirt, first I’d swab it from top to bottom to get a DNA sample (don’t ask my why or what I would do with it), and then I’d sniff that shirt until my nostrils fall off of my face.

    • Miss M says:

      The “BIG” is hysterical

    • ichsi says:

      That was Taylor Holland, aka a 76-year old lesbian xDD

  3. Mia4s says:

    It’s a cute idea, I’d at least be interested since we’d likely get to know who wrote what.

    Wasn’t a big fan of His Dark Materials but between Ruth Wilson, rugged explorer James and steampunk Lin-Manuel Miranda? Damn…I’m in.

  4. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Oh really looking forward to His Dark Materials. Hurry up BBC!

  5. Dee says:

    Who is he? He’s gorgeous! And that accent!

  6. Miss M says:

    The Mac is so attractive.
    Hecate, thank you for semi-recovering and writing this post.

  7. Booradley says:

    Couldn’t agree more, James can get it for sure

  8. Ohio Girl says:

    Love him!!!

  9. MCV says:

    He’s been my constant crush all these years since I saw him in Atonement.

  10. tuille says:

    Clever idea!

  11. P says:

    Hot as hell!

  12. Esmom says:

    Love him, swoon. And what a cool idea. When I saw him in the shirt with the signatures I’d assumed he’d gathered them for himself as a souvenir. Auctioning it is so much better.

    • mia girl says:

      Me too. I mean I LOVE HIM… and true love lasts forever.

      I’ll fight all you ladies for him & his shirt!

  13. Tina says:

    I saw him on a plane once. He was very short, but very attractive. He was also lovely to the staff, which gets him points in my book.

  14. Steff says:

    I’d take that shirt even if no one signed it, if ya know what I mean. 😎

  15. Harryg says:

    That’s a fun idea! Hope they’ll get a ton of money!

  16. Maxine says:

    Oh James McAvoy! Looks good in any and eveything. Enough said.

    Honestly, the most distracting part of this post is the fact that they’re trying to reboot the Dark Materials trilogy. Not sure the audience there. It’s a fairly strong anti-religious theme to it, which is part of why I suspect it didn’t land well with American audiences the first time around. And frankly, there are better fantasy series out there considering how the story famously go off the rails in the third book.

    Be interesting to see who goes for the shirt! Maybe they could dry clean it? That may leave the writing better intact.
