Michael Fassbender (BANG Media)

"I find it difficult to do both and to give that other person the right amount of attention and time they deserve."

The 30-year-old star says he is most attracted to women who are confident and intelligent.Asked what he looks for in a woman, he said: "Intelligence, self-confidence in one's own skin.

"If somebody is the perfect mould, but she's not enjoying herself, then I find it sad and unsexy."
