Was briefly a member of a street gang while at secondary school. Was homeless between the ages of 15 and 18 and worked as a bouncer in pubs in Glasgow. While in college, made extra money by entering disco-dancing competitions. Was rejected by the National Film School. While filming 2000's The Claim in the Canada Rockies, he had to be treated for hypothermia after spending six hours shooting in the snow. His 2002 film, The Magdalene Sisters, about Irish-Catholic women accused of sexual misconduct and forced to toil in church-run laundries where they suffer abusive treatment, touched off a dispute with the Vatican. Won a Golden Lion at the 59th Venice International Film Festival for The Magdalene Sisters in 2003, which was also nominated for Best British Film and a European Film Award for Best Film. In 2009, with three other British actors, he vowed never to work for the BBC again after the broadcaster refused to run a charity appeal for humanitarian aid in Gaza. Did a fashion spread in the July 2013 British edition of Esquire magazine. Supported the Yes Scotland campaign in the Scottish Independence Referendum in 2014.
