Quote of the Day

"I’ve been told so many times that if you want to win awards, you need to start making it sound like you’re fucking sweating blood every time you step on set. ‘People want me to say things like, “That was the hardest thing I’ve done! It consumed me completely!’ ‘For me it’s just my job and creatively speaking, it didn’t leave me shattered— but I feel that people are disappointed when I say that." 

While I'm aware that this is just as much of a posture as is the "desperately wanting awards" posture - everything an actor says in a press situation is an attempt at crafting their image, after all - I find this posture much more appealing than the latter, so hats off to James McAvoy for striking this particular pose. It looks good on him. Who are we kidding -- most everything looks good on (or off) James McAvoy...

He should've won an Oscar for ATONEMENT. The fact that he didn't even get nominated still stings.
