Michael Fassbender's manhood is the talk of Tinseltown — and we now know about it thanks to Sony's hacked e-mails.
According to said leaked messages, top movie execs were intimidated by the size of the actor's package. His penis literally scared Hollywood.
When considering a leading man for the studio’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic (no, not the one with Ashton Kutcher), Michael De Luca, the president of production at Columbia — a Sony studio, suggested passing on the 37-year-old hunk because his role in ‘Shame’ “just makes you feel bad to have normal-sized male genitalia.”
That left them one choice, of course. They essentially begged Leonardo DiCaprio to consider the role.

In an email to Leo, famed agent Robert Newman got personal, saying, “Everyone involved in this production desperately wants to help bring you the Academy Award you so richly deserve.”
He continued, “I remember speaking with you years ago about ‘Boogie Nights,’ and all you could have done with that wonderful part, and I truly believe this is an opportunity we will look back on with regret if we don’t make happen.”
Leo must’ve decided to take his chances, as they ended up casting Christian Bale as the Apple creator, though he has since pulled out of the production.
And it looks like we’ve just seen the tip of the iceberg; in another email, studio exec Clint Culpepper called Kevin Hart a “greedy whore.”
