Even horses have a total boner for Michael Fassbender

And now a pause from our deathly serious reportage of Charlie Sheen and James Franco for something slightly frivolous. It seems the current fascination with Michael Fassbender is not limited merely to Hollywood producers rushing to cast him in everything from X-Men: The First Class to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. Even the animal kingdom has a total hard-on for him, as Fassbender’s Jane Eyre co-star Mia Wasikowska reveals in an interview with Movieline, relating an anecdote about the time the filming of a certain scene where her Jane meets his Rochester on horseback was constantly interrupted because “every time Michael hopped on the horse, it got a huge erection.” Waskikowska says trainers would then remove the horse and run it around the block to make its erection disappear, only to have it spring back into action every time Fassbender hopped on. It’s a grim condemnation of modern movie technology that we’ve gotten to a point where we can digitally alter the bodies of actors, but we still can’t edit out a horse’s boner.
