We know that there's a hyphen in the nationality when we talk about Michael Fassbender being Irish, but the German-born actor is another of the club that Britain is trying to claim as their own...at least according to GQ. 

In this month's issue, the celebrated men's magazine decided to take a look at a number of celebrated actors from Britain that are taking Hollywood by storm, winning awards and landing huge roles in blockbuster movies. 

The list was chosen by none other than LA's head British celeb David Beckham, and while Fassbender didn't make the list as being officially one of Britain's shining talents, there was mention of the fact that he was one of the "British" actors that had scooped plenty of awards.

Oh we see how it is, once they start winning things then all of a sudden they're from the UK. First Conor McGregor, now this...

Well, in fairness they recently lost Andy Murray back to Scotland.
