James McAvoy has admitted to once LYING about a friend getting into a terrible car crash just to avoid an audition he was ill-prepared for.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show last night, the Scottish actor revealed that his agent had put him forward for an audition for a movie that required him to learn several songs on the guitar.

But after failing to practice enough, it came to the day of the audition and the X-Men star decided he needed a way to escape what would no doubt end up being a disaster.

The Filth star told host Norton: "My agent suggested something that she thought was going to be great for me. I needed to learn songs and to play the guitar. 

PAJames McAvoy certainly knows how to put his acting talents to use 

"I said, “No problem”, but of course the day came and I was rubbish at all of that and I stood in front of them with my heart in my mouth and thought, “I”ve got to get out of this”, so I started to cry and through my tears said, “I”ve just had a phone call. My mate has been knocked down, he”s at the hospital and I have to go”."

James added: "If they are watching this they will be thinking, “We really believed him and he is a b**tard!” I am sorry for that."

The film superhero recently revealed he will be shaving his head and going completely bald for 2016″s X-Men: Apocalypse as he reprises his role as Professor X.

Simon Kinberg has scripted the film from a story penned by himself alongside Singer, Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris.

Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters will all be returning.
