Here is some more honest James McAvoy quotes.

Being proud of himself.

I take a lot of pride in being myself. I'm comfortable with who I am.

On humans.

Our intellect, our awareness, and our consciousness is the most powerful form of life on this planet.

Being in control of your fate.

The minute you start to strategize too much, the more you start to think you're in control of your own fate. And you're not, really.

On internal conflict.

Basically, for every character I've ever played, I've based entirely on internal conflict. And I love doing that because I think it's very human.

On being a good person.

I was talking to one of my aunties at Christmas and she said she didn't think it was ever in my nature to go against the grain, and that I was always a good boy. I think she was right - I did always want to be good.

On filmmaking.

Filmmaking is a miracle of collaboration.

On the script

The script is the most important thing for me. I'm advised that other things are important too, and they are. The director that you'll be working with is hugely important, and the cast that are with you is really important as well. But, for me, the thing that gets my heart excited and really makes me invested in something or not is just the quality of the script.

On cracking the code of girls.

Girls didn't really take much interest in me until I was about 14. But I knew how to talk to them very quickly. What I figured out - that my friends didn't - was you have to talk to women like you're not constantly trying to have sex with them. That seemed to work.

Some people aren't that nice.

People come up to me and they're usually nice, but as it goes on you realize that some people aren't nice. Some people are not nice at all.

On Michael J. Fox.

There's something about Michael J. Fox that I loved when he did all the '80s stuff. His way of performing all the physicality, which is why it's so tragic now, but the way he used his body so much as well, I loved.

On Matt Damon.

I want to be like Matt Damon and do a hugely successful thinking-man action franchise like 'Bourne.'

On losing his hair.

I think I'm losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that's kind of all I know.
