Michael Fassbender was in New York City yesterday doing a few interviews to promote Slow West! He looked great, but seemed a little tired in the MTV interview. In the past couple of weeks, he's surely flew tens of thousands of miles back and forth from North America, to Europe, doing pre-production work for Assassin's Creed. All that flying, regardless if it's in Business or First Class, can tire someone out with serious jet lag. It never ceases to amaze me how some people don't take that into account and still want to criticize Michael. Criticize him when they don't see him, and criticize him when they do see him. Sigh.
In the MTV interview, Michael mentioned how Kodi Smit-McPhee introduced him to meditation. Michael said he's never done it before and tried it for just over a minute. Michael, take it from me, I meditate daily as a practicing Buddhist and it's an achievement to meditate for even just one minute a day. Just sit somewhere quiet, close your eyes, concentrate on your breathing. That's all you gotta do brother. So good for you! The shortest time I meditate is 5 minutes, the longest has been 3 hours (it was a special Buddhist ceremony, but in private time, I avg. 30 minutes).
