Recently, major mass media have pointed that James McAvoy, who usually plays the roles required him to do any heavy lifting (physically, at least), is now bigger than ever before.

The next step of the rumor spreading was the appearance of the quote where James tells Mr. Porter that he takes extreme 6,000 calories.
After that, on December 11 McAvoy publishes the next text on his Instagram page:
“Seeing a lot of articles saying that I ate 6000 calories a day to get bigger and leaner. Just to set the record straight incase anyone decides to give this a go. I have never done this. The quote is taken from an interview I did for a movie called “Split,” not the one I’m on right now which is called “Glass.” The interview was done at the beginning of the year and me saying “I ate 6000 calories a day” is inaccurate, was meant as a joke and is being widely used out of context. The truth is that this time around I gained more muscle weight and got leaner by not counting a single calorie.
Good old @magnuslygdback had me eating a lot but nowhere near the 6000 calorie mark. In fact, we didn’t count a single calorie. We counted macros… I think probably a healthier way of tracking intake. I’m sure most people would never dream of copying the advice of some article/s on the internet about some actor, but I know some would and id be gutted if they laboured under bad advice or worse yet seriously harmed their health. 6000 a day might work well for somebody, but I’ve got zero experience or info on that being the case.
Guys and girls in the gym and out… this IS NOT how I got the results I got. Enjoy your workouts or non workouts. Stay healthy and eat well to enjoy if you can! All the very best, James.”
As you may see, the 6,000-calorie diet was only a joke. It “was meant as a joke and is being widely used out of context,” which is altogether reassuring, as such diet is a ridiculous amount to eat every day, even under the watchful eye of a personal trainer.
To avoid any further misunderstanding James tells that he busts this myth in order to save people who would blindly follow “his way.” “I’m sure most people would never dream of copying the advice of some article/s on the internet about some actor, but I know some would, and I’d be gutted if they laboured under bad advice or worse yet seriously harmed their health.”
McAvoy also reveals that his unusual physique was required for an upcoming role in another M. Night Shyamalan movie called Glass. That’s why our sensitive, slim actor best known for playing a young and nerdy Professor X looking so jacked today.
