Michael Fassbender - Michael Fassbender's Naked Ambition

Subscribe to Michael Fassbender alerts

Michael Fassbender thinks it is "his job" to be naked.

The 34-year-old actor plays the part of a sex addict in Steve McQueen's new movie 'Shame', and while he spends parts of the movie in the nude he was not too embarrassed because he accepts it is part of his work.

He told BANG Showbiz: "Unless you have exhibitionist tendencies, which is cool, but I don't, I don't feel that comfortable appearing naked in essentially a roomful of strangers but it had to get done. It was an essential part of getting inside the psyche. That's my job, I've got to facilitate these things, forget about Michael Fassbender or whatever that image is. I'm there to tell stories and fascinate my part in the story. I had to roll up my sleeves - although I didn't have any on - and go for it."

He was so unconcerned about the nature of the film - which also stars Carey Mulligan as his troubled sister Sissy - he did not even read The Script because he trusted the director so much.

He added: "It wasn't really a problem because of course Steve McQueen changed my life with 'Hunger', so I didn't even need to read a script.
