He appeared in a very different type of project the following year. He portrayed a vicious slave owner in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave (2013). The film follows the true life story of a free African American (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor) from the North who is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South.
Fassbender will return the X-Men franchise for the 2014 action epic X-Men: Days of Future Past. He is also slated to star in and produce a film version of Ubisoft's video game series Assassin's Creed for Sony Pictures.
Regarding the broad diversity of his acting roles, Fassbender has explained, "I don't want to stay in my comfort zone. I want to take risks and keep myself scared.”
Along with his film success, Fassbender has generated his fair share of romantic interest. In 2011, he dated Zoe Kravitz, daughter of actress Lisa Bonet and rock musician Lenny Kravitz. The two were co-stars in the movie X-men: First Class. Although the relationship did not last, they have reportedly remained friends after their breakup.
In 2012, Fassbender started dating his Shame co-star, actress Nicole Beharie. Ever the professional, Fassbender insists on not mixing business with pleasure. Of his relationship with Beharie, he told GQ magazine, "Nothing happened while we were filming." He went on to clarify how the relationship bloomed: "We started talking more on the promotion thing. So, yeah, it just sort of unfolded like that."
