Matt’s Naked Ambition

Matt Smith has announced that he will happily strip off for any future role after seeing the praise heaped on actor Michael Fassbender in the film Shame (which also stars Carey Mulligan).

Smith – who has recently become a lot more toned while preparing for a BBC film about Olympic rower Bert Bushnell (Gold in the 1948 double sculls event) – was clearly as smitten as fans and critics alike by the performance which has earned the actor, the film, the director Steve McQueen and others involved countless awards and accolades.

Shame actor Fassbender beds a series of women in the film, resulting in various nude scenes.

“I think Shame was brilliant and Michael magnetic in it.

“One day I would love to do something similar. Of course I would get naked for a role. I’ve got naked on stage so why not on screen?”

Fassbender, of course, is better known as playing Eric Lensherr/Magneto in the most recent X-Men movie, so we marvel at Matt’s puntastic observation!
