I'm not attractive enough for rom-coms: James McAvoy

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor James McAvoy believes he is not good looking enough for romantic comedies.

The "Becoming Jane" actor has enjoyed working on lighter movies in the past, but is not convinced his casting is particularly credible because he is only "alright" looking, reported Femalefirst.

"I would (do rom-coms) but I don't think I'm very believable as a dashing leading man. I'm not attractive enough. I'm not fishing, I'm being When you do those roles, and I've done a few and really got a lot out of portraying those characters.

"But in the back of your mind is the niggling doubt, 'Is anyone going to believe this beautiful woman is going to fall in love with someone who looks like me?' And I don't like to agonise over my level of attractiveness when I'm working..." McAvoy says.
