Late success blessing for Michael Fassbender

Los Angeles: 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," a website has 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 a 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."
