|Michael is becoming a pro in 'awards holding'.|
When presenting the award to Michael, Jane Goldman said, “The winner this year has often been described as sex on legs, but as it happens he’s also intelligence, charm, passion and vulnerability on legs as well. Film has always been his passion - he appeared in a stage version of Reservoir Dogs 14 years ago; since then he’s appeared in a Tarantino film. Whatever the genre, he grounds his characters in reality. He lost 3 stone in Hunger, he spanked Keira Knightley in A Dangerous Method and in Shame he bared all. But in each case he transcends actorly stunts. But perhaps his greatest performance of the last 12 months is the patience he’s shown in the face of continual questions from journalists about his physical assets.”
“Well, this is kind of unusual, because the first job I wanted to do was be Superman, so a hero award is official now, thanks to Empire. It’s a magazine I actually always did read and follow as a film fan. And Jameson is my favourite whiskey, so this is pretty special!” - Michael Fassbender
Congratulations Michael! And btw, FF readers, we now KNOW that Michael is in London and you know what that means in regards to his Plan B package! Yes! Perfect timing!
