Michael Fassbender surprised by nudity

2012-05-17 21:08
London - Michael Fassbender didn't think his nude scene in Shame was "titillating".

The 35-year-old actor portrays sex addict Brandon in the movie - which also stars Carey Mulligan - and he admits he was surprised his penis gained as much attention as it did as there were bigger issues in the film.

He said: "I always liked Brandon - I felt for him. But I knew I had to go to some ugly places with him and he was going to look ugly.

Titillation city

"My nakedness is the easiest part of the film. But yeah, I certainly didn't think, 'Hey, this is going to be titillation city here.'"

Despite becoming a recognisable actor after starring in movies such as X-Men: First Class and A Dangerous Method, Michael - who is dating his Shame co-star Nicole Beharie - Michael still tries to keep a low-profile in his hometown London.

He told Shortlist magazine: "I still want to live my life as I've lived it. I try to carry on as is, so it's still pretty much the same thing.

"I came to London for drama school and that'll be 16 years this September."
