James Is A Scotsman

James McAvoy gave an interview to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In that interview, he talked about some exciting stuff with interviews and his things. 

James has gained an enormous fan following from his move "X-Men Apocalypse." 

He started the interview by saying that he feels that theatre is his home as he had worked there for many years. 

He started his career from his stage work. He had done Macbeth and spent years on a stage, so he has that feeling of home on stage. 

James opened up that he is a Scottish man, but he is an English man professionally. 

His interview was hilarious as he said that he likes being Scotsman in his free time. 

The interviewer had known him for a long time, but he never knew she was a Scotsman

He always thought he was an Englishman. He then talked about square sausage. The interview didn't know what square sausage meant.

James then said that the patty is made up of beef, and Scottish people are massive fans of it, and they usually eat it for their breakfast. 

He said that he is from Glasgow on the west side of Scotland, and the people of Glasgow are known as Glassweejians.

People of Scotland call Glassweejians Ouijas, but people living in Glasgow don't prefer calling themselves Ouijas.

He said that he was raised in the Council of State. Other people called it a housing project. 

He revealed that after the second world war, a new city was built-in on the outskirts of that place, and everyone was moved there.

James McAvoy Doesn't Post On Social Media

James McAvoy interviewed "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." 

There in the interview, James talked about Jennifer Lawrence and his movie. 

The interviewer's first question to him was why he didn't tweet anything on his social media. 

He said that he is on Instagram but never tweets about a thing, and the reason behind that is he thinks that whatever he writes on tweets on his social media, no one cares about it. 

People won't be interested in anything he says, so he thinks that tweeting is unnecessary. 

But he said that people might show interest if he says something related to acting and his movies, but people don't want to hear their personal opinions or thoughts on anything. 

The interviewer then showed him a picture of him that he posted on his Instagram. In that photo, he was lying in a paw petrol sleeping bag. 

He was watching his movie trailer. He watched the scene where he was saying sorry by laying inside the paw petrol sleeping bags. 

He revealed that Jennifer Lawrence is the person that owns the Paw Patrol sleeping bag, and he doesn't know why he got that, but he got it. 

He thinks Jennifer owes that company is because of her puppies. Her puppy's name is Pippi Lawrence Stocking. 

Everyone laughed when he told that name. He said that Jennifer is hilarious and she is a very joyful person. 

The interviewer then talked about when James came over to the show promoting his movie Unbreakable and Split, which was a hit and made huge money.
