Michael Fassbender Gave Horses Erections: Mia Wasikowska

HORSES

Many, many women find star actor Michael Fassbender attractive. Apparently, so do many male horses.

Fassbender's "Jane Eyre" co-star Mia Wasikowska spoke to Movie Line about Fassbender's maddening effect on their equine co-stars, saying his good looks helped make it nearly impossible to film.

"There was a horse on the third day of filming [when] we were shooting the scene where Jane and Rochester meet, and every time Michael hopped on the horse it got a huge erection," Wasikowskia remembered. "And he'd get off and they'd run the poor thing around the block to try to make it go away, and he'd hop on it again and it would happen all over again, and they'd have to get him off and run it around."

A problem for the crew and horse trainers, but a pretty hilarious incident for the rest of the cast, one would think.

Not familiar with Fassbender's work -- or his horse-approved looks? Among other things, he stars in "Inglorious Basterds," "Jonah Hex," and "300," and along with "Jane Eyre," he'll soon be seen as Magneto in the upcoming "X-Men: First Class".
