James McAvoy linked to X-Men co-star Alexandra Shipp

James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff shocked fans when they issued a joint statement announcing they are to divorce.

The Scottish actor, 37, has allegedly formed a close friendship with his X-Men co-star Alexandra Shipp, 24

“It’s been the source of some gossip among those connected to the film – but they’ve kept things low key.”

James and Alexandra have been snapped looking cosy a few times over the past week, as they promote the new X-Men: Apocalypse film.

He was seen putting his hands around her waist as they signed autographs at the London premiere.

James, 37, and Alexandra, 24, are currently on a press tour to promote X-Men: Apocalypse, with the Professor X actor telling Graham Norton on his chat show that they had quite a few stops left before it was over.

Alexandra shot to fame as a Disney star in the Nickelodeon series House Of Anubis and appeared as Aaliyah in the much ridiculed Lifetime biopic.

They are believe to both be returning for next X-Men movie, The New Mutants.
