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.”
