Is Michael Fassbender the Kinkiest Actor in Hollywood?
Michael Fassbender, 34, is having a moment in Hollywood, with two movies in theaters generating a lot of heat this Oscars season. Steve McQueen’s Shame is about a Manhattan bachelor addicted to sex. Carey Mulligan plays his dysfunctional sister.
A Dangerous Method
Fassbender travels back to 1904 to play a famous head doctor in David Cronenberg’s new psychosexual drama. When Carl Jung falls for one of his nuttiest patients (Keira Knightley), he has to rely on his pal Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) for some advice.
