“Michael Fassbender did something so wonderful in this movie. Fassbender does something in this movie where we’re at the end of the scene, and he asked me not to call cut. And when the scene was over, he continued and did something that made me cry in the tent. I’ve never done that before.

“The head of my company, Jason Taylor, grabbed a Kleenex. Simon Kinberg, the writer who has no emotions at all, actually became emotional,” the director said.

Calling it “beautiful” the Jack the Giant Slayer director said the Steve Jobs star took the whole scene to some other level.
