Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender has said 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen changed his life, and that he wants to keep working with the filmmaker.

McQueen's film won Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday night, and Fassbender, who also worked with the British director on Hunger and Shame, said: "'The fact of the matter is, Steve changed my life."

Fassbender continued: "I want to keep learning in this game and if I can keep working with people like, and especially, Steve, then I'm happy.

"Steve and I have a really good understanding. We are on the same page, we see things in the same light and we want to take risks and stretch boundaries."
