Late success blessing for Michael Fassbender

Los Angeles, Feb 27 (IANS) Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender thinks he would have not been so grounded if he had found fame in his early 20s.

The 34-year-old is happy that roles like “A Dangerous Method” and “Shame” came his way late in his career.

“You know, I spent a lot of time out of work. Now I’m trying to make hay while the sun is shining. I wouldn’t change anything. The fame thing, the honey traps, I don’t know that I would’ve handled it well at 23. I would’ve gone ape sh*t,” quoted him as saying.

Despite tasting huge success, Michael has managed to keep himself grounded and credits to his upbringing in rural Ireland.

He told Now magazine: “My upbringing was pretty innocent. Fishing, climbing trees and running around the countryside. I was also an altar boy at a local Catholic church responsible for unlocking the doors in the morning. I slept in a few times. The whole congregation would be waiting outside and I’d be running across the fields with the keys.”
