Michael Fassbender thinks confident women are “sexy and attractive”, even if they’re “slightly overweight”.

The Irish-German actor has a legion of female fans the world over but remains single. Although happy with his status, Michael has revealed what qualities he looks for in a partner.

“Intelligence, self-confidence in one’s own skin. If a girl is slightly overweight, or, you know, if she’s comfortable in herself, living life the way she wants to live it, I find that sexy and attractive,” he told the February issue of GQ.

“If somebody is the perfect mould, but she’s not enjoying herself, then I find it sad, and unsexy.”

Michael sees himself settling down one day and having children with someone he loves. However, the 34-year-old star is concentrating on his film career for now.

“I’m quite a romantic person and I love the idea of having a family. But I’d have to take a step back out of this. It’s not fair on somebody to be waiting for you. You spend long periods of time apart and then when I am here, I’m working,” he explained.

“I find it difficult to do both and to give that other person the right amount of attention and time that they deserve.”
