The GQ Cover Story: Michael Fassbender’s interview
Listen, America, if you want your leading men to play robots or dudes with superpowers, Michael Fassbender isn’t so Stanislavsky that he’ll roll his pretty Irish eyes at you. But that’s not why he’s the most exciting leading man to emerge in years. It’s because he dives into roles that would make most Hollywood himbos piss in their loincloths: a hunger-striker, a sex addict, a vicious slave driver. Why does Fassbender push himself to such extremes? To find out, GQ’s Zach Baron rode shotgun with him and barely lived to tell the tale.
that’s an interesting read. and it features James McAvoy too.
Michael Fassbender meets up with his older Magneto counterpart Ian McKellen at the X-Men: Days of Future Past panel held during 2013 Comic-Con on Saturday (July 20) in San Diego, Calif.
The guys were joined at the event by Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore,Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Evan Peters and the rest of their film’s cast.
“Is this the coolest movie cast photo of the summer?” Patrick tweeted along with a photo of the full cast together.

Michael Fassbender Dating Olympian Louise Hazel
Michael Fassbender is romancing British Olympian Louise Haze (placed 27th during the London Olympics in 2012). The 36-year-old actor and the 27-year-old heptathlete were spotted spending time with Fassbender’s pal Bradley Cooper in London on Friday, May 24.
“They are dating,” a source says of Fassbender and Hazel. “Michael has been talking to her while also filming X-Men: Days of Future Past in Montreal. He comes back to London to see her.”
That’s one way to bounce from a medal-less Games.

“Lawrence of Arabia leapt to mind when I cast Michael Fassbender because I realized that Michael Fassbender, with blond hair is not the same, but not dissimilar to, and if you were ever gonna redo Lawrence you’d probably certainly want Michael Fassbender to be Lawrence. And I thought, you get a person, a being onboard the ship who is of serious intelligence, probably an IQ of 225 or 300 he’d wanna definitely entertain himself, and by entertaining himself he would naturally educate himself, by watching everything that’s onboard. So he’s been through the entire library of a million movies. The thing that stuck to mind was Lawrence of Arabia which he plays again and again mainly because he loves the anecdotal thinking of Lawrence himself so we go on out and the line is him saying: “The point is not minding it hurts” when Lawrence burns his finger. Which in a funny kind of way has a kind of loose, metaphorical connection to a person who has no soul, has no feelings and in fact is David. So that’s why maybe he gravitated towards Lawrence because Lawrence, in a funny kind of way while he was a very passionate character also had a degree of a soulless quality to him which made him kind of even more powerful. So I thought it was a good connection”
