Michael Fassbender: LA is too soft
Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender says Los Angeles “makes you soft”.

The actor was born in Germany, raised in Ireland and has lived in England for the past 15 years. Michael has no desire to set up home in Los Angeles after falling in love with life in London.

“I’ve met some cool people out there who say I haven’t found the right LA, but I just prefer here,” he told the latest UK edition of Elle. “I think LA makes you soft - people never get anything done. It’s a city where people give out their business cards. I think London has a sense of humour. I like the parks, I like the mentality here. I like walking. I like the immediacy of the city.”

The 35-year-old hunk is one of the biggest names in Hollywood after appearing in movies such as Shame, Inglourious Basterds, A Dangerous Method and X-Men: First Class.

Despite his successful career, Michael still enjoys anonymity.

He is relieved that he can continue going out in public without being mobbed by fans and insists he never craved fame.

“I don’t really get noticed. That part hasn’t really changed. I thought it would in the last few months, but no,” he explained.

“I’m not bothered about being famous. That was never the game plan. I wanted to be good – that was the goal.”
