Co-stars of Ridley Scott’s futuristic sci-fi flick ‘Prometheus,’ Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron shift their talents from the big screen to print when they heat up the cover of next month’s W Magazine.

Fassbender, born in Germany but raised in Co Kerry, Ireland, is quickly climbing the ranks to be considered one of Hollywood’s most talented - and best looking - stars. He burst onto the scene with his critically acclaimed portrayal of Bobby Sands in the 2006 film ‘Hunger.’

Celebrity Gossip provides some early excerpts from Fassbender’s and Charlize Theron’s interviews in which they chatted about working together on ‘Prometheus.’

Theron shared her reaction to the first time she saw Fassbender on screen, which was in ‘Hunger.’ about IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands. “A friend said, ‘You have to see this movie. It’s the best thing I’ve seen in my entire life.’ I thought, 'Just chill out, okay?' But I was absolutely blown away by it. It was, like, all bets are off from now on. This is the guy.”

The Hollywood stars embrace and entwine in the photos dressed in leather outfits, and Theron in particular seems to have really enjoyed it

She told the magazine she is comfortable with naked scenes:

"It depends on who you're doing the sex scene with. I don't have issues being naked. That sounds very slutty. . . . What I mean is, I'm not hung up on my body, and I've been lucky to work with people I've been really comfortable with."

"I've had maybe two occasions where..." - "It's been uncomfortable," Fassbender interjected.

Theron continued, "And Michael's one of the two who did not make me feel very comfortable."

Theron previously dated Irish actor Stuart Townsend for nine years before a very public break-up.

Fassbender shared how he prepared for his role of David in ‘Prometheus’: "At first I was thinking about the Alien films, or Blade Runner—those robots were very human. I decided to make him more robotlike but with human elements within. I looked for inspiration in David Bowie and Greg Louganis... When you read a script, certain images or names pop up, and for some reason, Greg Louganis came up. I knew I wanted to have good posture and a sort of economy of movement. It was the way Louganis walked to the edge of the diving board—I always thought it was mesmerizing."
