Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron Talk Sex Scenes in 'W' Magazine
Anyone who's seen 2011's steamy sex-addiction flick, Shame, can clearly picture its star, Michael Fassbender, as a libidinous womanizer.
He just made bed-hopping look so... natural.
In real life, Michael tells W magazine that playing an overly virile character is kind of a pain.
"Sex scenes sound like more fun than they are," he told the August issue of W magazine. "Death scenes are easier, really. Maybe because I've died so many times. I've had a lot of practice. In my movies, I'm often naked or dying."
Charlize Theron, with whom he shares the cover and co-star billing in the movie Prometheus, says just the opposite, however.
"It depends on who you're doing the sex scene with," she said. "I don't have issues getting naked (pauses). That sounds very slutty. What I mean is, I'm not hung up on my body, and I've been lucky to work with people I've been really comfortable with."
So was the sex hot between her Fassy? Oh, please Charlize — tell us it was!
"Michael's one of the two who did not make me feel very comfortable," she added.
"I was a robot!" Michael said.
Ouch! Say it ain't so!
The Inglourius Basterds star also revealed he finds physical inspiration from two famous people when going through a script and figuring out a character: David Bowie and former Olympic diver Greg Louganis.
"For some reason, Greg Louganis came up. I knew I wanted to have good posture and a sort of economy of movement. It was the way Louganis walked to the edge of the diving board — I always thought it was mesmerizing."
