Michael Fassbender - Michael Fassbender Has No 'Insecurities'

Michael Fassbender is "utterly fearless" when it comes to nude scenes.

The 'Inglourious Basterds' actor is not afraid to show himself in a bad light in his films he makes and his dedication to his roles - particularly the graphic sexual content of his latest film 'Shame' - sets him apart from other actors according to co-star Carey Mulligan.

She said: "The minute you want to talk about sex with people seriously it makes people uncomfortable. Michael has no insecurity, or if he does he hides it away somewhere where people can't see it.

"A lot of actors, especially when they are as talented and good looking as Michael, only want parts where they are shown in a good light. If I learned anything working with Michael, it's that he's utterly fearless."

Michael is also unflinching about having to get naked for the film, in which his character, Brendan, is a sex addict.

He said: "You know, like a guy is naked, and there's a penis on the camera, and it's a big deal. Women are always parading around naked in films."
