Friendless Charles

Does anyone else disagree on the idea that this is canon? 

When I saw the movie, I certainly didn't take it as such.  At the beginning of the movie, I thought it was just a bratty kid sister teasing her  brother, later in the movie, I thought  it was also about Raven insisting on her prime position in Charles' life, but at no time did I consider it "canon".

Charles is WAY too charming and gregarious not to have friends. If that line was intended to be taken seriously, then McAvoy played him all wrong.

A man with no friends wouldn't have Charles' friendliness and easy-going confidence. He'd either be pulled-in and shut down or desperate and pathetic.
