Michael Fassbender is the consummate professional.
So it's no surprise that when it came time to film his sex scenes with Penélope Cruz in Ridley Scotts new thriller, The Counselor, the acclaimed German-Irish actor was all about staying true to their characters.
Though he was quick to admit the shoot wasn't easy given that Cruz's hubby, Javier Bardem, who also appears in the movie, was right there with them.
"It's always a bit awkward, really. Doing scenes like that, especially cause Javier was sitting at the end of the bed. That was really weird," he told E! News with a laugh. "You just wanna make sure that the other person is comfortable and that the other person doesn't feel like you're taking advantage of any situation. And then to just try and feel safe with one another really and then you can really hopefully sell what needs to be sold."
