Michael Fassbender is on the cover of next month’s GQ looking more your-wife-would-totally-cheat-on-you-with-him-in-a-second than any human should. At the least lede to the accompanying profile isn’t sexual.

Before Michael Fassbender loses control of the 340-horsepower Mustang GT the two of us are riding in…

Maybe not. How about this?

“Let me put it to you this way, right? A lot of comedians are dark personalities, but they’re making people laugh. So, you know, it can flip the other way. People that are playing dark roles can actually be quite light. It doesn’t necessarily go hand in hand. I think sometimes maybe people that are lighter can access that darkness easier, whereas people that are dark don’t like to access it…It’s too much maybe part of them that they don’t want to reveal. I know that I’ve got darkness, but for the most part I try and smile as much as I can, you know? I mean, David Cronenberg said it annoyed him that I used to come to work happy all the time.”

Ugh, stop being happy, Fassbender.
