James McAvoy Interview – Split – “Why would I broadcast the details of my life like that?”



When filmmaker M Night Shyamalan gave James McAvoy the script for Split, it revealed a startling subject matter – a man co-existing with 24 personalities in his body.  Thankfully, the Scot was asked to just portray nine. Which he admits was a huge relief.


Q: In fairness, you’re probably more private than they are about your personal life. Has that been difficult to maintain as you’ve gotten more famous?

MCAVOY: … And I think talking about stuff like that I find a little embarrassing. Not because I’m ashamed of anything, it’s just, why would I broadcast the details of my life like that.
