The nature of the acting profession is such that movie stars need to change their appearance in order to match their specific roles. Sometimes, you have to become overweight, and other times skinny.
And in James McAvoy’s case, as reported by LadBible – someone who’s ripped.
And boy does he look impressive! Photos have been emerging during the last few weeks, and people are more and more impressed with what James has achieved.
Like, just look at him.
James started stealing people’s hearts when he romanced Keira Knightley in the excellent 2007 Atonement, but granted, that was due to very different reasons than his physique.
McAvoy is continuing his role from Split, where he was Kevin Wendell Crumb, also known as “The Horde” – a person harnessing their dissociative identity disorder. The next film will be called Glass, and will make a loose trilogy together with Unbreakable and Split. All three movies are directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who seems to have found his specific niche with these movies, and is sort of creating his own movie series.
James uploaded a short video on Instagram, saying: “Working on Glass, I had to put on some weight, some serious muscle. We figured that on my legs that would be really important. That’s why we hit this little baby. It’s one of my favourite leg exercises.”
Fans were… Impressed, to put it mildly. See for yourselves:

Another person said: “Knowing James McAvoy is floating around in my city somewhere right now looking this thicc is an utter joy.”
Being powerless in the face of McAvoy’s muscles, they couldn’t contain their excitement and added: “Move over, Nick Jonas. James McAvoy is here and he is thicc and he is popping and he will crush you with his arms and chest.”
That… Escalated quickly!
In short, Glass combines Unbreakable and Split plotlines, pitting David Dunn (Bruce Willis) against James McAvoy’s ‘The Beast’ – but with a twist. Samuel L Jackson, playing Elijah Price, will ‘hold secrets critical to both men’.
I for one enjoyed both movies, and can’t wait to see Glass!
