"Michael is a deep well. He doesn’t have his shtick. He’s willing to make himself look like an idiot to get where he wants to go. It’s like painting the most beautiful landscape, then taking a cloth and wiping all that beauty away to start again. To be willing to throw all that good work out of the window. He’s not vain. He’s not precious. He’s the boxer and I’m the trainer in that light. And every fight will be different."
Robin Holland, photographer: Steve facetiously asked me, “Will you shoot the quintessential portrait of Steve McQueen and Michael Fassbender? The photo that whenever anyone thinks of us, this will be the image they have in mind?”
