Winning loser? Whatever. He lost out on the Olivier Award for Best Actor to Mark Strong but I don’t know that anyone can call James McAvoy a loser. Not when he’s out there, saying what he means and meaning what he says, about the arts, about how privilege can influence who becomes an artist, and speaking out about the importance of arts funding, and then pledging £125,000 for a 10 year scholarship at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where he graduated in 2000. Full Story

James McAvoy announced the Olivier Awards nominations today in London along with Lesley Manville. In addition to presenting duties however, he also ended up a nominee – Best Actor for his work in The Ruling Class. He called his role “the hardest thing I’ve ever done”, partly because the play is so angry. Full Story

Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshaw. Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Turner. Even Keira Knightley and James Righton. All fine and worthy candidates, sure. But for me, the title of Best BAFTA Couple belongs to the McDuffs, Anne-Marie Duff and James McAvoy, arguably the most acclaimed (though underrated) couple in the business. Full Story

James McAvoy was joined by Anne-Marie Duff last night in London at the after-party following the gala performance of The Ruling Class. I love them, I love them, I love them. And every time I see them, I feel joy and relief. Mostly joy. Joy for them now because they are celebrating. They are celebrating the success of the play. Full Story

And he can! He can! James McAvoy was on Jonathan Ross this weekend. So was Barry Manilow. And it turns out McAvoy is a Fanilow. He told Ross that he used to dress up in his sisters “wee white trousers” as a kid to sing “the love story of Tony and Lola”. McAvoy is all about Copacabana. Full Story

Best day ever. Brange is married. Drama at the Beygency. And James McAvoy photos! We just need Hot Prince Harry to pull his pants down now. So here’s James McAvoy in New York yesterday promoting The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby. I feel like he’s never looked/been sexier. Or, you know, you could just listen to him talking to Letterman about his bachelor party. Full Story

There were a lot of studs on Good Morning America today. From the X-Men franchise: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, and can we call Ellen Page a stud for being a straight-up badass? As you can see, Hugh and James have great chemistry. At one point James was massaging Hugh’s head. And maybe seeing what he’d look like if he had his eyes lifted. Full Story

Have you seen this yet? All credit to Hugh Jackman who just…he just…he makes everyone better. Like if you’re on a press tour with Hugh Jackman, or doing a three-way interview with him, you’re compelled to be as charming and as charismatic as he is. Because otherwise, you just end up looking like a sulky f-ck. Full Story

Wasn’t super excited about X-Men: Days Of Future Past until this morning. Because look at these great shots of Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy promoting the film in London today. They’re both in leather jackets. Great. They’re both hot, obviously. Great. But they’re also our favourites – two of the nicest, kindest actors in the business, always gracious, always generous, always fun. Full Story
