No, seriously. He did.

Sam Neill is a master of social media. He knows how to hook an audience with something shocking paired with something sweet, odd, and entertaining. He knows people love his animal friends. And he knows how to low-key promote his vineyard, Two Paddocks, named for his iconic turn in Jurassic Park. He does all of the above with his latest Twitter post, where Neill introduces the world to his fat c*ck, Michael Fassbender.

Is this name a cheeky reference to Fassbender’s revealing Shame performance? Probably. However, Neill notes its not so much bawdy jokes that earn a celebrity an animal homage as friendship.

The New Zealand actor quite co-starred with Fassbender in François Ozon’s 2007 period-drama, Angel.

Other celebs who’ve earned Two Paddocks’ namesakes include Australian comedian Mick Molloy:

Neill’s Jurassic Park co-star Jeff Goldblum:

And Merlin co-star Helena Bonham Carter:

He even talked about his animal friends on The Graham Norton Show. Specifically, he talked about the reasoning behind these monikers, explaining, “In all fairness, you can’t eat Meryl Streep.”
