How does Michael Fassbender feel about coming in eighth on Empire's recent list of the 100 Sexiest Movie Stars?

Let's just say he isn't too upset with coming in just ahead of fellow hunky actors Bradley Cooper (tenth place) and Hugh Jackman (ninth).

"They're wonderful guys and very handsome, so thank you for packaging me together with them," Fassbender laughed when asked about it at last night's The Counselor premiere in London.

Hot, talented and humble! Swoon.

Empire released their list of hottest actors earlier this week.

Readers chose Benedict Cumberbatch as the No. 1 Sexiest Movie Star, followed by Tom Hiddleston and Henry Cavill. Ryan Gosling nabbed fourth, Robert Downey Jr. fifth, Chris Hemsworth sixth and Robert Pattinson seventh.

At last night's premiere, Fassbender also opened up about his big-screen sex scene with costar Penélope Cruz.

"Sex scenes are always awkward, to be honest, whatever anyone sort of thinks of them outside of the film game," he dished. "It's just awkward really, so you just want to make sure that the person you're acting with is comfortable and doesn't feel like you're taking advantage in anyway. You know, I've got huge respect for both Penélope and Javier [Bardem]. So it's really just about doing your job."
