Michael Fassbender: 'I hope Prometheus stands up to Alien'

Fassbender told Elle of the new movie: "I hope it stands up against Alien.

"Ridley's amazing, such a nice guy too, there's a real energy and youth to him."

He added: "A lot of these directors have a wicked sense of humour. [David] Cronenberg was the same. He spent all the time taking the p*ss."

Of his immediate career plans, Fassbender said: "I consciously stopped [making movies] last year. There's so much of me out there at the moment, I wanted to back off a bit. It's like overkill."

Regarding how taking time out may affect his 'man of the moment' status, he added: "That isn't the part that excites me.

"It is kind of bizarre rather than fun. I was excited a year ago, when I was working on those films."
