Michael Fassbender Thinks Fame Is Making Him More Successful With Women

“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. … I remember I was sitting at this table at this thing, 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.’ “

Michael Fassbender may be right that his increasing fame has made women more interested in what he has to say, but I think there’s one specific role that’s done the most for his mojo. I saw “Shame” three times, Michael, and that first scene is everything. I paused. I stared. (That link is NSFW, BTW.) And I’m sure every other red-blooded hetero lady did too. (P.S. Click through the gallery above for Michael’s GQ cover shoot. I’m SO SURE he had trouble with women before. Puhlease.) [GQ]
