He's Mature About Nudity

In Michael Fassbender's 2012 NPR interview, he discusses how he got through all the nudity and sex scenes in Shame. He said, "[In one sequence] you kind of see everything combined — the need for the hit, the desperation, the self-loathing, the lust — so that helped me get over the embarrassment of being naked and performing these compromising positions." He's also said director Steve McQueen gave him the trick for getting through the scenes: to remember, we're all going to die one day.
