4. Michael Fassbender. Michael Fassbender might just be the sexiest breakout star on our list. Even though he's been working steadily since 2001 and had fantastic bits in both 300 and Inglourious Basterds, 2011 was the year Michael really popped into our collective consciousness. After brilliantly playing the villainous Magneto in X-Men: First Class, he gave us Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre (http://socialitelife.com/new-and-improved-jane-eyre-03-2011) (I swoon) and his complicated sex-addict in the critical darling Shame. And how could we forget his role as Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method? I mean, the man can really do no wrong. Plus, did we mention he's gorgeous? Dear lord, please give us more Michael Fassbender in 2012 and beyond. Thank you.
