"We got drunk and had a good laugh. We just immediately bonded. I just love him. You know when you've got someone and they understand you and you understand them? It's like love - you don't choose it. Someone comes into that world with you and you each raise your game. It's wonderful. It's a rare thing." Director Steve McQueen has a deep appreciation for the personal and professional relationship he shares with Michael Fassbender. The pair first met when MCQueen hired the actor to star in 2011 drama Hunger and their latest collaboration, 12 Years A Slave, has garnered nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards and Golden Globe Awards.
