Michael Fassbender Talks Negative Criticism: 'You Have To Be Robust In This Profession'

Michael Fassbender knows that with a high-profile status comes negative criticism, but he at least knows how to deal with – most of the time!

“I try to process it, doesn’t mean I succeed,” the 40-year-old actor recently expressed (via HuffPostUK). “I read reviews and they sting if they’re bad, but I’ve always been luckily able to judge for myself, all the way back from student days. You have to be robust in this profession.”

Michael also opened up about the best piece of advice he received: “It came from my parents. They told me, ‘Whatever you decide to do, and the choice is yours, give it 100%.’ And they also said, ‘If you have a good idea, have belief in yourself.’”

Pictured: Michael all smiles while making an appearance on Spanish TV show El Hormiguero to promote his latest film Alien: Covenant on Monday (May 8) in Madrid, Spain.

Michael Fassbender On Comedy Roles: 'It's Something That I Have To Do More'

Michael Fassbender has opened up about how he’d love to show off his more playful side on the big screen in a comedy role!

“I spoke to Seth Rogen about it. We’d met before, I was a fan of his work,” Michael added. “I think I threw a blueberry at him actually, it was at one of these dinners and he was at the table across the way and so that was our introduction and then I got talking to him. So, when we were on Steve Jobs he said, ‘I thought we’d work together at some point but I thought it would be in one of my movies.’ So yeah, maybe at some point.”

Michael Fassbender's 'Song to Song' Could Have Been a Mini-Series

Michael Fassbender sits down for a panel discussion about his movie Song to Song during the 2017 SXSW Festival on Saturday morning (March 11) in Austin, Tex.

The 39-year-old actor was interviewed by director Richard Linklater alongside his Song to Song director Terrence Malick, who made a rare appearance in public for the event.

Terrence opened up about how the original cut of the film was eight hours long and he rhetorically asked at the time if he was making a mini-series.

“We shot the film on a 40-day schedule,” Malick said (via Deadline). “We had an 8-hour first cut of the film and it took a long time to cut it to a manageable length.”

Make sure to see the super hot photos of Michael at the premiere the night before!

To really enjoy it and enjoy the experience of doing it. Coming back was a follow up to that really. To have the honor to work with Sir Ridley Scott. To work with these guys.
