Michael Fassbender: “It’s Just A Peen!”
Michael Fassbender (the “F” is silent) plays a fuck addict of Gerard Butler proportions in Shame and one of the opening scenes features him sprawled on top of a bed with a clear shot of his sleeping peen in a post-cum state. That scene earned the movie an NC-17 rating and Michael thinks the whole thing is ridiculous, because who hasn’t seen a dick before? Put down your hand, Justin Bieber, you don’t count, girl!
Michael explained his thoughts on the rating system’s anti-cock policy to Huffington Post (via Towleroad) like this:
“Half of us have a penis and the other half have probably seen one, and so why should it be more normal to, like, chop people’s heads off and shoot people? Does that mean that that’s more acceptable or closer to us as human beings?”
Assbender is nothing but right. What humanity really needs from the world of cinema is less cut heads and more cut AND uncut heads if you know what I mean.
And I’m guessing that Michael Fassbender doesn’t have a problem with putting his dick situation in front of the cameras, because he’s a brave thespian and is attracted to emotionally damaged characters who have built walls around themselves and must expose their raw vulnerability to the audience by stripping away the layers that hide their pain. Or bitch just has a big dick.
Here’s Assbender with Eli Roth and Rose McGowan at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night.
