Shirtless Michael Fassbender Covers THR's Indie Issue

Shirtless Michael Fassbender Covers THR's Indie Issue

Michael Fassbender goes shirtless on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Indie Issue.

Here’s what the 34-year-old Shame actor had to share:

On fighting for roles in the early ’00s: “I came to Los Angeles and did auditions for television. I made a terrible mess of most of them and I was quite intimidated. I felt very embarrassed and went back to London. I got British television jobs intermittently between the ages of 23 and 27, but it was very patchy.”

On meeting with a recovering sex addict for Shame research: “One man had the same intimacy issues that Brandon had, so it was very helpful to me, and I was very grateful that he opened up.”

On his role in A Dangerous Method: “I was a bit worried that I’d perhaps bitten off more than I could chew. But I’m always interested in trying to investigate different personalities. I want to keep myself guessing and keep the fear element alive, so that I don’t get too comfortable.”

FYI: Michael is wearing A|X Armani Exchange J130 Black Coated Skinny Jeans.

    Let me guess, everyone is going to rave how hot he is yet complain Michelle Williams did the same.

    Both photoshoots works with the marketing of their films. It’s disappointing and attractive together.

    Well, the film came out a month ago. His GQ covers were for the film. This is purely for the Oscar push. Which is fine. An Oscar nom = more people seeing your film. Fox Searchlight is as aggressive as the Weinsteins.

    What I find interesting is that both him and Williams are such talented actors. Do you really need to objectify yourself to gain attention? I mean, you have talented actors like Gosling, who sort of did it earlier this year, but in his case the gratuity more or less fits into the context of his film.

    I guess I am just not used to seeing some of my favorite, most talented actors selling themselves this way.

    @happy:
    For god’s sake what are you talking about? He is a Hollywood Actor, what you expect him to do? not do any interview ? it’s part of his job to sell himself, otherwise he’s gonna be only our favorite actor and no one else will know him, I mean eve Johnny Depp is doing the same so give him a break

    Alexander Skarsgard is balding Says:

    At least he does not claim tobe the savior of mankind and wants to populate the planet with his spawn like some other ho, whose name will not be mentioned. Hopefully, Mr. Fassbender continues banging and remembers to control the pet population without leaking out his “Blood and Honey. ” ; )

    Well, I usually dont spread rumours but Ive heard hes back together with Leasi since the last GG party. So what about being a woman beater?!! But I dont understand him – I wouldnt take this woman back! Does he have no pride?
