LONDON (AP) - At the moment, there’s just no stopping Michael Fassbender.

At the Venice Film Festival he’s promoting two films, not one: “Shame” by director Steve McQueen and Steven Soderbergh’s “A Dangerous Method.”

Now the German-born Irish actor is back in London for his latest film “Jane Eyre,” where his brooding Mr. Rochester runs smack into Mia Wasikowska’s timid but fiercely feministic Jane.

Fassbender tells The Associated Press that his character appears “very bipolar” and needs Jane more than she needs him. He also credits director Cary Fukunaga for powerful visuals and Wasikowska for her “exceptional” performance.

“Jane Eyre” opens Friday in the U.K.
