PEOPLE! People! Stop taking every goddamned word these people say so frakking literally. Fassbender saying he plays a 'butler' could mean so many things. A butler has many connotations, and he could have been being cynical, or a bit smart-ass with the comment. We don't know.
Gathering that because of the aforementioned 'butler' comment that Fassbender and Pearce are on a yacht on earth and David (Fassbender) is butlering around the deck is LUDICROUS. THere is so much misinformation around this film that I don't know if I believe anything, which is probably the way Ridley wants it.
Deep breaths folks. Deep breaths.
