Michael Fassbender considered a career in catering when acting wasn't working for him.

The Irish-born star - who has appeared in movies including 'Fish Tank' and 'X-Men: First Class' - admits he was nervous when film roles did not come quickly, and his only faith was in the fact he would always have experience running a bar.

He said: "I was thinking, what if this doesn't work out? I haven't been to university, I'm not the most academic person. but then I thought, well, I do know the catering industry, so I'm going to learn as much about making cocktails and running a bar.

"So I started managing a bar, and then suddenly I was getting auditions."

However, the 34-year-old hunk is glad to now be involved in the career he is, and still has to pinch himself at his success.

He told the Daily Telegraph: "It's crazy that I've worked with the people I have, that I'm actually allowed to earn a living out of it. I've always thought you mustn't live your life where at the end you go, oh God, I didn't do that because I was worried about what other people might think of me."
