                The fact that he studied the rabbits’ anatomy and how it can affect the voice of it for an ANIMATED movie, blows my mind

                    I hated him during Atonement and wanted to protect Saoirse from him. (Did not completely understand that movie back then) and now... I’m adoring him and of course loving my Soirse even more. 😌💗

                      I think you're perhaps the only person on the planet who not only hated his character in 'Atonement' but, more impressively still, liked Saoirse Ronan's. I'm fairly certain the rest of us wanted to kill her instead.

                                      Good grief! What a high pressure, fast-paced interview!!! Both Colbert and McAvoy manage it, gracefully, skillfully!
                                      But the pressure to perform .... Is it *really* necessary and worthwhile?! Seems kind of like a firehose on full.
                                      Not for me!
