Charlize Theron is astounded Michael Fassbender missed out on an Oscar nomination for his racy turn in Shame, insisting he's so talented she wants to "punch him".
The actress was already a huge fan of the Irish star before they met on the set of new sci-fi epic Prometheus, thanks to his acclaimed turn as a sex addict in the hard-hitting movie last year (11).
Fassbender was hotly-tipped to be one of the five men up for Best Actor at the Academy Awards in February (12), but failed to get enough votes to land the nod.
He has admitted he was shocked by the snub, because he was geared up to be nominated by Hollywood insiders, and now Theron has slammed the Academy for failing to recognise Fassbender at the industry's biggest prizegiving.
She tells Britain's You magazine, "My co-star Michael Fassbender is one of the funniest guys I've ever been around. I saw him in Shame, in which he plays a sex addict, and I didn't stop thinking about that film for weeks.
"No disrespect to the people who were nominated for Oscars, but the fact he wasn't to me was utter bulls**t. I think he's incredible. He's so effortless that I want to punch him! It just seeps out of him."
