Michael Fassbender is coy and sensual on the cover of the June issue of GQ. The “Shame” actor posed for the magazine with a half-naked counterpart for the cover’s accompanying editorial. Fassbender opened up to the glossy about not being nominated for an Oscar and his relationship with his costar Nicole Beharie.
“At the beginning people [say], ‘You’re going to be going to the Oscars,’ and you’re like, ‘Whatever, doesn’t matter, don’t think so.’ But after a while it does penetrate. After a while you’re like, ‘Anyway, so I’m going to the Oscars,’” he laughed. “And you start to believe it. And I did. I thought I was going. And then I found out I wasn’t and I was upset. I was very upset by it. The first reaction was ‘What the f*ck?’ It’s a vanity thing. It does become important to you. And it shouldn’t. A good little lesson.”
Regardless of whether Fassbender eventually gets nominated for an Oscar, this actor proves he’s well worth the media attention. Check out his GQ photo shoot below.
