Michael Fassbender - Michael Fassbender Surprised By Nude Excitement

Michael Fassbender didn't think his nude scene in 'Shame' was ''titillating''.

The 35-year-old actor portrays sex addict Brandon in the movie - which also stars Carey Mulligan - and he admits he was surprised his penis gained as much attention as it did as there were bigger issues in the film.

He said: ''I always liked Brandon - I felt for him. But I knew I had to go to some ugly places with him and he was going to look ugly.

''My nakedness is the easiest part of the film. But yeah, I certainly didn't think, 'Hey, this is going to be titillation city here.' ''

Despite becoming a recognisable actor after starring in movies such as 'X-Men: First Class' and 'A Dangerous Method', Michael - who is dating his 'Shame' co-star Nicole Beharie - Michael still tries to keep a low-profile in his hometown London.

He told Shortlist magazine: ''I still want to live my life as I've lived it. I try to carry on as is, so it's still pretty much the same thing.

''I came to London for drama school and that'll be 16 years this September.''
