Apparently Shakespeare’s play Macbeth is cursed, and if you say the name inside a theatre disaster will strike – but does anyone really believe it?
Well, it looks like Michael Fassbender does! The Kerryman said that there were some spooky occurrences on the set of his new film Macbeth, and that’s what made the cast and crew change the name to The Scottish Play while inside the theatre.
“Certain things that made one think ‘oh my god’. So at a certain point we changed it to The Scottish Film.
“You are evoking darker spirits, or the underworld, whatever you want to call it.”
Fassbender says he’s not the superstitious kind, so it must have been something pretty scary to freak him out!
We can’t say we blame them for changing the name – better safe than sorry and all that!

Michael Fassbender is officially the highest ranking celebrity on IMDB’s STARmeter. He’s followed at a close second by Liam Neeson, while 50 Shades of Grey actor Jamie Doran comes in third.
Only two women made the top ten – Game of Thrones actress Michelle Fairley came in fifth, while Saoirse Ronan made fourth place.
Surprisingly, Colin Farrell scraped it in at number ten – but Managing editor with IMDB Keith Simanton said the poll is pretty accurate: “It is an extraordinarily good indicator, we see people’s interest pretty early.”
Well, we’re definitely in agreement with Fassbender topping the poll!
From the childhood crush to the celebrity obsession, there’s always been that one guy we like doodle love hearts about. While majority of crushes never materialise into anything, it doesn’t make them any less fun to have. Here are five crushes that every girl will go through:
He could be the star of the class or your childhood friend, but despite your protestations, you never forget your first crush.
The celeb crush
Let’s face it, it’s an ever growing list from Ryan Gosling to Michael Fassbender; there are too many good looking men to pick from!
The Twitter crush
You don’t even know him but you follow him anyway because he’s your friend’s friend. He’s so cute and has such witty tweets, that you can’t help but be in love with him.
The not-your-type crush
You have no idea why but you can’t help being attracted to this guy. He’s not your usually type in so many ways, but sometimes opposites really do attract.
The see-him-everywhere crush
This is the guy that you’re constantly bumping into. Whether it’s on your bus route home or in your local supermarket, you can’t escape him! But despite staring from a far you’re always too chicken to start a conversation with him.
Michael Fassbender maybe one of the most gorgeous actors in the world right now, but he proved recently that he can be just as goofy as the rest of us.
The 37-year-old actor had no problem showing off his excitement at some of Moscow’s famous sights yesterday, as he was spotted going to some unusual lengths to ensure he got some perfect shots for his photos.
Michael was of course surrounded by tonnes of security guards but that didn’t stop him from having fun whilst sightseeing.
Ah Michael you always know how to make us smile!
Michael Fassbender has undergone a dramatic transformation for his role in Macbeth.
The actor looks smouldering and different in the upcoming movie, which also stars Marion Cotillard.
While there is no release date for the movie yet, footage was shown at the Cannes Film Festival this week.
This isn’t the first film that Michael looks completely different in as he has recently starred in the Irish film, Frank, in which the actor wears a large masked head for the duration of the movie.
James McAvoy and his X-Men co-stars got up to a lot of mischief while shooting the movie.
The actor returns as Professor Charles Xavier in action flick X-Men: Days of Future Past, and said he shares a “real strong bond” with his co-stars, including Michael Fassbender and lovebirds Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.
“We had a lot of fun when we were filming. We’ve got a real strong bond, both of the groups do actually. Me, Michael [Fassbender], Nic [Hoult]… Jen Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Josh Helman… There was a lot of farting about, you can see [it],” he said.
“But then, I don’t know, that translates on the cameras [because] we’re all tied so closely and the things we sacrifice for each other, that makes a good ensemble. These movies always pick up a good ensemble,” the actor added.
X-Men: Days of Future Past hits Irish cinema screens from May 22nd.

Michael Fassbender has been linked to many stunning ladies since he hit the big time – from Naomi Campbell to his co-star Lupita Nyong’o.
And now the gorgeous Irish actor has finally revealed what he’s looking for in a woman.
Wait for it…
She has to be “feisty”!
“Everybody would rather a feisty woman, no? You don’t want a wallflower, you want life and passion and opinion,” he said.
Now we know what he saw in the notoriously hot-headed supermodel Naomi!
It seems Michael doesn’t take his sex symbol status too seriously, but admits that his fame helps him a lot with chatting up the ladies.
“I make a lot more friends, you know what I mean? You become a lot more successful in terms of, like, talking to a girl. She’s all of a sudden more interested in me. I know that, like, three years ago, she would’ve walked away after two sentences left my mouth,” he previously admitted.
The rumour mill has gone into overdrive this morning, after Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse, was spotted wearing quite the ring on THAT finger.
The beautiful sparkler was spotted as Suki walked the red carpet at last night’s Met Gala in New York.
Adding fuel to fire, the 22-year-old was later spotted hiding her hand by putting it into her pocket as she walked alongside Bradley.
Our hearts may be shattering into a thousand pieces right now, but if it’s true, we wish them all the best!
We would be lying if we said we weren’t jealous of Graham’s couch last night, as Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy were there to promote their new film X Men: Days of Future Past.
Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete without some hilarious antics from the guests and Graham managed to succeed in getting the three gorgeous actors to dance along to the summer hit, Blurred Lines.
Thank you Graham, we really appreciate it.
Jude Law has stepped in to replace Irish actor Michael Fassbender in his upcoming movie Genius.
The Sherlock Holmes actor will star opposite Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman in the movie, which is based on A. Scott Berg’s biography of editor Max Perkins.
Perkins worked with literary great Thomas Wolfe on a number of his books, and the pair developed a complex friendship which changed their lives forever. Intriguing!
Law will play the celebrated writer, while Firth will star as his editor Perkins. Kidman’s role is yet to be revealed.
Director Michael Grandage is planning to begin pre-production in August and the film will start shooting in October.
The project was first announced in 2012 as Max Perkins: Editor Of Genius and Shame star Fassbender was picked for the role.
But now it seems the Irish actor’s busy work schedule means that Law will fill the role instead.
Win-win, we think!
