Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender
has called opposition to gay marriage “bizarre” and “ludicrous.”
The 36-year-old Fassbender, known for
playing a young Magneto in the X-Men film franchise, made his
comments to Gay Star News as he arrived at the British Academy
of Film and Television Art's Tea Party in Los Angeles.
“I've always thought it was a bit
crazy that it wasn't allowed,” Fassbender said of marriage
“I totally favor” its legalization
in the United States, he said.
“People are happy and want to get
married. Why not? I don't understand where the resistance would be
to be honest. It seems bizarre to me – ludicrous,” Fassbender
Fassbender added that he was waiting
for a “good story” to play a gay character.
“It doesn't really matter if the
character is gay,” he said.
