There is something breathtaking about watching beautiful actors playing troubled characters. Michael Fassbender is one among them. Making his debut with the Steven Spielberg mini-series Band of Brothers (2001), he has played a string of characters who had trouble living with themselves like Brandon in Shame, Bobby Sands in Hunger and Edwin Epps in 12 Years a Slave.
He was in his teens when he decided to choose acting as his career much to the dismay of his German father and Irish mother. He has no qualms admitting that the only reason he did movies like X-Men and Assassin's Creed is so he could make a mark for himself on the global map. The proceeds from these roles also helped him to become a producer and work for the kind of cinema he liked. Although it is true that he became a renowned face after he donned the helmet of Magneto, it is also true that he has delivered some exemplary work including the ones which were worthy of Academy Award nominations like 12 Years a Slave and Steve Jobs.
It is also strange to see a popular and a well-liked actor keeping his personal life low-key. He refuses to discuss his personal affairs and manages to keep the journalists guessing. But his super acting skills are not the only things that draw us towards him. Here are some reasons why he is the ultimate chick-magnet.
He stares into your soul
He thinks he's Superman
His smile is contagious
His bromance with James McAvoy is adorable
He is the perfect assassin
He's got a sense of humor
He gives awesome massages
