Editing Saves Mcavoy's Ballroom Blushes
Scottish actor James McAvoy was stunned by the ballroom dance scenes in his new period movie BECOMING JANE - because editors made it look like he knew what he was doing.
The clumsy actor admits he spent much of the dancing scenes treading on co-star Anne Hathaway's feet, and feared he'd be replaced by a dancing double.
He says, "I think we looked pretty good in the film but there was a lot of fancy editing if I'm being honest. Anne wasn't too bad for that, she was pretty sharp, but I did tread on her toes quite a lot.
"Ironically, Laurence Fox's character was supposed to step on Anne's toes a lot and he was a rather good dancer. I was very bad."
