We’re all imposters in Hollywood

This is an all-Scottish ‘Macbeth’, in the shadow of the coming independence referendum.
‘We are doing it at a very important time and on the doorstep of Downing Street, which is great. I’m half expecting Alex Salmond to turn up and do something funny. I’ve seen “Macbeth” before and everybody’s English apart from one Scottish witch – what’s that all about?’

Your own bit of Scotland, Drumchapel outside Glasgow, is pretty hairy: does your background keep your feet on the ground in Hollywood?
‘It does, but I don’t really like seeing Drumchapel as a bad place: it’s not fair to the people that live there. One of the weird things about Hollywood is we’re all imposters; we’re all just glammed up. At a proper Hollywood party – an Oscars party – you look around and go, “Fuck, he’s a movie star and she’s a movie star and he got six million dollars for a film,” but it’s clear everybody’s the same. Your initial instinct might be “How the fuck did I get here?” but after a couple of years you go, “The same way every fucker else did.”’

So I hope you like. 🙂

The BAFTA-winning star is taking on the role of Macbeth in London’s West End next month.

But cult director Quentin Tarantino put on a special version of the Scottish play with James and Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies for tonight’s Graham Norton Show.

Tarantino got McAvoy to brandish a samurai sword like one from his hit film Kill Bill for an excerpt from the play.

Speaking about Macbeth, McAvoy said: “It’s Scottish but there are no kilts, no shortbread, no Irn-Bru. There may be whiskey, there will be blood.”

But the dark play won’t be as unnerving for McAvoy as when he starred in Privates On Parade with former EastEnders actor Nigel Harman.

“We both came on naked and had to stand to attention for five minutes,” he said. “I thought I would look at the audience and realized my sister was there.”
