‘Fifty Shades of Grey?’ Michael Fassbender’s never heard of it

Updated: July 7, 2012 8:44AM

After he bared all in “Shame,” Michael Fassbender was an inevitable candidate when casting rumors started about E.L. James’ sexy book trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey.

But the actor pleads ignorance.

“I don’t even know what that is,” Fassbender insists. “I’ve heard people saying stuff about my casting and it’s on the Internet. Honestly, I don’t know anything about the book or the character. Nobody has approached me.”

He laughs and adds, “It’s ‘Fifty Shades of Green’ in my world — that’s how much I know about it.”
