Shortly after, James arrived at the Vanity Fair after-party covered in red permanent marker autographs from celebrities.
The actor further took to Instagram where he posted, “Went to the Oscars. Presented. Mugged by sharpie wielding celebrities. #thuglebrity I’m sure my shirt is going to be defaced by more of these entitled graffiti mentalists as the night goes on.”
James McAvoy also tagged a number of celebrities who signed his shirt, including Charlize Theron, Brie Larson, Sarah Paulson, Samuel L Jackson, and Michael B Jordan among others.
The actor later admitted it was a very spur of the moment, “off the cuff” thing he’d done and he wasn’t quite sure what he was going to do next.
It was alcohol-fuelled.
And speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the actor revealed the reason why.

I got Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael B. Jordan, I got… who else did we get? I got a lot of people.
