Michael Fassbender Never Considered Himself Hot

Michael Fassbender may be a surefire hit with the ladies now that he’s got some success under his belt (not to mention what else is under his belt for you straight ladies and gay gents, HEY-O!) but turns out, he never really considered that he was a good looking guy, apparently.

From Elle:

“I think of myself as, you know, alright. I used to have bad acne as a teenager, so all of this is a bonus now, the fact that I don’t have pimples anymore.

“And my hair was also, you know, unfortunate. I had really long hair. I mean, I tied it back most of the time, but I had all these frizzy bits coming off the top and whenever I let the hair down, it went like this [indicates big, bushy frizz].”

“I’m not oblivious to it. It’s not like I think I’ve become more charming or good-looking overnight. But, no, I haven’t lost any respect [for women]. I’m an alright judge of character, so you can figure these things out.”

Well, okay. I’m glad he’s getting a lot of ass now, but that’s two interviews in a row where the highlight has been talking about his looks. Does he not have anything better going on in his life to talk about? No awesome roles, no deeper thoughts? Ah, well.

Women Really Like Michael Fassbender Now

And no, it’s not because he whipped it out repeatedly in Shame. No, apparently it’s just his general fame that has the ladies flocking to Michael Fassbender… and he doesn’t really seem to see a problem with that.

From GQ:

“I make a lot more friends, you know what I mean? You become a lot more successful in terms of, like, talking to a girl. She’s all of a sudden more interested in me.

“I know that, like, three years ago, she would’ve walked away after two sentences left my mouth.”

He continued: “I remember I was sitting at this table and I was talking to this girl. I was like, ‘God, I am so boring right now’. But she was like, ‘That’s so interesting!’

“I was like, ‘You know what? Five years ago, this would not have been interesting’.”

I could never be famous for a number of reasons, but a major one being that I’m already paranoid and TRUST NO 1 and when you’re famous, that’s all magnified x 100 because you don’t know who’s out to fuck you over or is just using you for your money or any of that. Put that in a romantic perspective and no wonder all these celebrity relationships breakup. Well, that and the fact that you have to trust that the other person isn’t gonna hop into bed with someone else when you’re away for extended periods of time – which in itself takes a toll on the relationship. It’s definitely a sacrifice these stars make, in that sense.

As for ole Fassbender, you know ladies are after The D after seeing it on screen. That and his money is a lethal combo for golddiggers. Hope he finds love soon, if that’s what he’s after!

PS Fun Fact about the photos in this entry: they were shot by Terry Richardson! And wow, he’s CLOTHED and not posing like he’s ready for someone to stick it in any of his orifices! Miracle!
