10 Things: Michael Fassbender
Ten things to know about the rising star.
Last year’s most ubiquitous movie star, Michael Fassbender, is sexing up the June 2012 cover of GQ, on stands May 22.

In the exclusive cover story, the hunky Irish actor opens up about his relationship with actress Nicole Beharie, 27, whom he met while filming the controversial sex addiction movie Shame, in 2011. Currently, the fresh couple is trying to make it all work, even though they are currently separated by the Atlantic Ocean.

“I’m seeing Nicole, we’re trying to see each other as often as possible,” Fassbender, 35, told the magazine. “That’s kind of difficult when she lives [in New York] and I live in England.”

How did they actually get together?

“Nothing happened while we were filming,” he admitted. “We started talking more on the promotion thing. So, yeah, it just sort of unfolded like that.”

Fassbender — who starred in six, yes, six movies last year — was previous linked to the much-younger actress Zoe Kravitz, 23, with whom he worked on X-Men: First Class.

He’ll next appear opposite Charlize Theron in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien prequel Promethus, out June 1.
