He announced the end of his nine-year marriage to Anne-Marie Duff in May and has subsequently tight-lipped about his private life ever since.

And it has now been reported that X-Men star James McAvoy, 37, has been enjoying a romance with Lisa Liberati, who serves as an assistant to film-maker M Night Shyamalan - for 'several months'. According to The Sun, the Scottish actor met the American brunette last year while preparing to shoot Shyalaman's upcoming movie Split, and has paid her visits at her Philadelphia home.

A source said: 'James and Lisa are having a lot of fun and behave like a pair of love-struck teenagers when they are together. He's not going to rush into anything after his split from Anne-Marie, but he is having a great time. In the months following his split with 46-year-old actress Anne-Marie, James got close to his X-Men: Apocalypse co-star Alexandra Shipp, though it was never confirmed that their relationship was romantic. James and Anne-Marie plan to continue living together for the 'foreseeable future' in their £1.9 million four-bed terraced house in north London - despite confirming the end of their ten year marriage earlier this year.

The acting pair have no plans to change their living arrangements, according to a report in the Sunday Mirror, with the parents keen to minimise disruption for their young son Brendan.  A source told the paper: 'They've decided to stay where they are for the time being and are trying to minimise disruption at home. James will be there for the foreseeable future.'  'It's completely amicable and they're still getting on well. So despite all the news breaking, they've decided to keep themselves at their home in London with their son,' the insider continued.

'To all intents, this seems to be the epitome of the perfect break-up.'
