James McAvoy Explains How Professor X Goes Bald In X-Men: Apocalypse


X-Men star James McAvoy was a guest on The Graham Norton Show this evening, along with his Victor Frankenstein co-star Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), and was asked about Professor Charles Xavier losing his hair in X-Men: Apocalypse.

“Is there a good reason for why he goes bald or is it really dull?" Norton asked (via Bleeding Cool).

“He ends up going through something so horrible and painful that he literally half pulls his hair out half… it falls out,” McAvoy replied. “Maybe or maybe not”

Check out the video below to listen to Radcliffe and McAvoy recount rare instances in which their fans were rude to them.
