James McAvoy has suggested that film stars are told to distortion about how tiresome a role was to win awards.
The Scottish star claims many of his contemporaries have been told to elaborate how tough some film roles are – be it from pier on weight to sleeping severe – in the wish of picking up a gong.
He said: ‘I’ve been told so many times that if you wish to win awards, you need to start making it sound like you’re f***ing sweating blood every time you step on set.
‘People wish me to contend things like, “That was the hardest thing I’ve done! It consumed me completely!’
‘For me it’s just my pursuit and creatively speaking, it didn’t leave me shattered— but we feel that people are unhappy when we contend that.’
The 38-year-old is the theme of Oscar speak for his psychological thriller Split, in which he plays a insane with 24 personalities.
But he doesn’t foster the process form of behaving desired by some of his contemporaries – last year Leonardo DiCaprio scooped his first Academy Award by eating tender bison and fast hypothermic conditions in the forest just as his his character, Hugh Glass, did in The Revenant.
Instead he explains that caring for his six-year-old son, Brendan, to ex-wife Anne-Marie Duff, helps him to balance in to personification demented characters.
Talking to TheTalks.com, he said: ‘I really, really adore it [acting] and we wish that every pursuit allows me to adore it. When I’m doing it, there’s zero else.
‘You get up at 6:00 am and you don’t get home until eight or 9 and then you do it all again and it’s so burdensome — you have no life when you work.
‘If I’m spending half my life doing that, then half my life is wholly that. But the other half is bringing up my child and being a stay-at-home dad. So, comparatively, behaving is just my job.
‘And we consider that that proceed creates it easy to apart myself from roles. I’ m comparatively mentally healthy and we consider it’s tough to apart yourself from roles when you’re not.’
