Who? Me? Sexy?....We give you Michael Fassbender
Who? Me? Sexy?....We give you Michael Fassbender


The '12 Years A Slave' star - who claimed he was flattered to be named the eighth sexiest male movie star worldwide in a poll last year - doesn't believe he's attractive but tries not to think about how much female attention he gets because it would turn him vain.

He said: "I don't see myself as a pin-up. I don't dwell on it. That sort of information isn't good for my own head."

The 36-year-old actor hit the headlines in 2011 for his revealing role in 'Shame', which saw him strip off and show his manhood, and even George Clooney thanked him on stage at the Golden Globe Awards in 2012 for taking over the "frontal-nudity responsibility".

However, Fassbender sometimes wishes the jokes and sexual remarks about the size of his genitals would stop, but he is adamant he would take on a nudity role again if he was asked.

He explained to British GQ magazine: "Of course I would do it again if the film needs it. When filming '12 Years a Slave', [director] Steve [McQueen] wanted me to lose my pants for a particular scene and I was like, 'Steve come on, we've done "Shame" already.'

"Listen, it's not a big deal. I mean half the population has one between our legs and the other half has something else. It's weird how there seems to be so much hype around one man's piece of anatomy. It's just ludicrous, really!"
