Michael Fassbender Covers 'GQ' June 2012

Michael Fassbender takes the cover of GQ‘s June issue, on newsstands May 22.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actor had to share:

On living in East London: “I always liked the energy ’round here. Traditionally more of a working-class area. A bit of an edginess to it, as well. And the parks are everywhere here. I always just felt like this was the right spot for me.”

On his big break in 2007, landing in Steve McQueen‘s Hunger: “There was something funny about that year. I realized that year somebody left the door open. I’m kind of superstitious – I was born in 1977, it was 2007. I just felt something in my bones.”

On campaigning during award season: “At the beginning people [say], ‘You’re going to be going to the Oscars,’ and you’re like, ‘Whatever, doesn’t matter, don’t think so.’ But after a while it does penetrate. After a while you’re like, ‘Anyway, so I’m going to the Oscars …’ And you start to believe it. And I did. I thought I was going. And then I found out I wasn’t and I was upset. I was very upset by it. The first reaction was, ‘What the f— …?’ It’s a vanity thing. It does become important to you. And it shouldn’t. A good little lesson.”
