The hollywood star likes the simple things in life!


While he may be one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood these days, Kerry actor Michael Fassbender loves nothing more than leaving the glitz and glam of his working life behind when he comes home to Ireland.

The Irish star admits that he travels back to the Emerald Isle as often as possible, but when he finally arrives home, does everything in his power to simply enjoy some downtime.

Michael told the Irish Independent, “I catch up with friends, usually. Lie on the sofa, which is always nice.

“Eat. Go for walks with my parents. I went for a surf last time and that was amazing. But mainly, it’s friends.”

And while Oscar nominated star may be living the high-life, his friends still see him as the same guy they grew up with.

He said “They think it’s nuts/ They don’t slag me off too much, no. It’s kind of strange – nothing really changes.

“If they come to a premiere and see that side of it, or if we go to a public event like the IFTAs, that can be quite intense.

“Other than that, we don’t dwell on what is it I’m doing. They have kids and families, and so we just catch up on life together.
