‘It’s Just A Grind’: Michael Fassbender Insists He Won’t Be Chasing Oscar Glory Again After ‘Shame’ Snub
Michael Fassbender may have become one of the hottest hunks in Hollywood as he sky-rocketted to superstardom playing a sex addict in Steve McQueen’s gritty drama ‘Shame’, but not even baring all his glory (and glorious it was!) in the flick was enough to secure the star a coveted Oscar nomination.
And now the hunk has revealed he won’t be hitting the campaign trail again after he was unfairly snubbed from last year’s ceremony despite garnering early Oscar buzz for his latest film ’12 Years a Slave’.

In an interview in this month’s GQ the 36-year-old explained he is far too busy being a serious actor to waste time worrying about award shows, insisting: “You know, I get it. Everybody’s got to do their job. So you try and help and facilitate as best you can. But I won’t put myself through that kind of situation again,” he tells the mag.
“It’s just a grind. And I’m not a politician. I’m an actor.”
But staying true to his word the mega star will be on set over the next few months where he’ll be starring his new production company’s first ever feature film in New Zealand before beginning shooting the upcoming adaptation of ‘Macbeth’ with the stunning Marion Cotillard.
Meanwhile Michael’s new flick ’12 Years a Slave’ comes to the big screen in the US this weekend, while it is scheduled to hit cinemas in the UK early next year.
