Meet GQ’s Breakout Star of the Year

A hint: He was in “Inglourious Basterds” and bares it all in this year’s “Shame”

Alerting ladies everywhere: GQ Magazine has picked Michael Fassbender as its Breakout of the Year.

Just this year, Fassbender has appeared in “Jane Eyre” and “X-Men: First Class,” and will soon hit screens in David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method.”

Oh, don’t forget “Shame,” which is due in theaters Dec. 2 and has already caused some to faint and others to swoon.

Molly Young opens her piece by writing, “Every Michael Fassbender fan freaks out in his or her own special way. Critics draw Daniel Day-Lewis comparisons, bloggers term themselves "Fassinators," and women pass out in movie theaters when the actor comes on-screen. The fainting occurred at the Toronto International Film Festival, at the premiere of Shame, a movie in which he stars as a mournful sex addict. The film was acquired by Fox Searchlight and will see its release timed for optimal Oscar consideration in December. The unconscious woman was revived and taken to the hospital.”

Young then spends a good portion of the article discussing Fassbender's looks, since the guy has this magnetic power over women.

Initially, she is skeptical but she eventually comes to the conclusion that he is "manageably beautiful."

But don't get too caught up in his looks, the guy has some big movies on the horizon, like "Prometheus," Ridley Scott's "Alien" reboot.

Given that GQ’s last two selections were Drake and Chris Pine, Fassbender should be optimistic.
