"I haven't even read the book," said the 35-year-old Irish-German actor, who bravely stripped for a controversial sex scene in the movie "Shame."
"You get your privates out and people assume you are some sex maniac."
Fassbender has a lot of fans, and also a lot of competition.
The "Fifty Shades" trilogy ("Fifty Shades of Grey," "Fifty Shades Darker," "Fifty Shades Freed"), written by bestselling author E.L. James, tells the story of 22-year-old recent college grad Anastasia Steele, who enters into a dominant/submissive sexual relationship with 27-year old sexy billionaire Christian Grey, and both explore Christian's world of BDSM while trying to understand their complicated relationship.
Some celebrities are giving suggestions on who should play Christian Grey.
According to Entertainment Wise, "X Factor" judge and singer Tulisa Contostavlos was eager to have her say on who should play the much coveted role of Christian.
Initially Contostavlos went for a mystery Irish actor with blue eyes (it may mean Michael Fassbender), but then decided on "Batman" star and "Lawless" heart throb Tom Hardy.
"Either him [mystery green eyed Irishman] or Tom Hardy," Contostavlos said, adding, "I think Tom should play it, I think Tom would make a good [Christian]."
When asked whether it was because of the 34-year-old's bad boy qualities she said, "No this is the thing, in all the movies that he does or things that I seen him in he plays a bad boy but when you see him in interviews he's actually quite sweet. I prefer him in the movies!"
