Heartthrob Fassbender shoots up sexiest list
Published 02/10/2012 | 05:00
IRISH actor Michael Fassbender has been ranked the fourth-sexiest man in the world.
The Kerryman's celebrity status in Hollywood has skyrocketed in recent years thanks to roles in successful films such as 'Shame', 'X Men: First Class' and 'A Dangerous Method'.
Now the IFTA award-winner is being recognised for his looks.
Over 40,000 people voted in 'Glamour' magazine's '50 sexiest men of 2012' poll and 35-year-old Fassbender has jumped a massive 27 places from his position in 2011 to bag the fourth slot.
Fellow Irish exports on the list are One Direction singer Niall Horan (19) and The Script frontman Danny O'Donoghue (31).
'Twilight' heartthrob Robert Pattinson (26) held on to his crown for the fourth year running and has been awarded the title of the sexiest man of 2012.
