Michael Fassbender - Michael Fassbender flattered by sexiest movie star poll

Picture:

Michael Fassbender is flattered to have been named the eight sexiest male movie star worldwide.

The actor was honoured to have made the top ten in a recent Empire Online poll of the 100 Sexiest Movie Stars, and especially to have placed ahead of resident Hollywood heartthrobs Hugh Jackman, who ranked ninth, and Bradley Cooper, who came tenth.

According to E! News, he laughed: ''They're wonderful guys and very handsome, so thank you for packaging me together with them.''

Michael was beaten by British star Benedict Cumberbatch, who came first, followed by Tom Hiddleston and Henry Cavill. Ryan Gosling took fourth place, with Robert Downey Jr. in fifth, Chris Hemsworth in sixth, and Robert Pattinson in seventh.

The rugged star also admitted he was nervous about shooting sex scenes with Spanish bombshell Penelope Cruz in Ridley Scott's new thriller, 'The Counselor', since her husband Javier Bardem co-stars in the film.

Michael, 36, said: ''Sex scenes are always awkward, to be honest, whatever anyone thinks of them outside of the film game. It's just awkward really, so you just want to make sure that the person you're acting with is comfortable and doesn't feel like you're taking advantage in anyway.

''You know, I've got huge respect for both Penelope and Javier. So it's really just about doing your job.''
