James McAvoy considered career in the navy
James McAvoy considered becoming a sailor before becoming an actor
The 34-year-old actor, who has had a phenomenal on screen career, said before he decided on life as a thespian he considered sailing the seas with the British Navy, as reported.
“I considered joining the navy at one point. It was either the navy or drama school. But luckily I got into drama school, I only applied for one and thankfully I got in. I never really considered being an actor, until I was working as an actor strangely enough,” he said.
Although McAvoy is very proud of his career and loves his job, he admits there are some extra-curricular activities that go with his profession that he does not enjoy.
“I don’t like working out for films, I generally kind of get really annoyed with it. Although, for the last couple of months I’ve been going to the gym and liking it…Oh my gosh, shock horror for me!,” he added.
