This isn’t just a bold move, it’s a bald move! Pardon the bad pun, but James McAvoy has us giddy-headed. It has been several months since the ‘X-Men’ actor shaved his head to reprise his role as Professor Charles Xavier in the Marvel movie series but, at a recent media event, the actor finally shared the tale behind his tonsured tresses.
Admitting to being “excited” about the new look, James confessed this wasn’t his first time bald, but it certainly was the first time he has shaved his head while sober! That said, McAvoy was concerned about the public reception to his lost lush locks. Surprisingly, the actor has found his bold move (one that marked indelibly his massive commitment to the ‘X-Men’ series) has resulted in unexpected rewards. For one thing, the look has landed him two new film roles — including one with acclaimed filmmaker M Night Shyamalan.
With ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ set to hit theatres this month, McAvoy’s shiny sheared head is slated to be quite a talking point in the coming weeks. McAvoy vs. Moore (remember Demi in ‘G.I. Jane’), James Franco in ‘Zeroville’ or Hugh Jackman in ‘Pan’ — which Hollywood star is hottest without a head full of hair?
