“You become a lot more successful in terms of, like, talking to a girl. She’s all of a sudden more interested in me. I know that, like, three years ago, she would’ve walked away after two sentences left my mouth. … I remember I was sitting at this table at this thing, and I was talking to this girl. I was like, ‘God, I am so boring right now.’ But she was like, ‘That’s so interesting!’ I was like, ‘You know what? Five years ago, this would not have been interesting.’ “
Michael Fassbender may be right that his increasing fame has made women more interested in what he has to say, but I think there’s one specific role that’s done the most for his mojo. I saw “Shame” three times, Michael, and that first scene is everything. I paused. I stared. (That link is NSFW, BTW.) And I’m sure every other red-blooded hetero lady did too. (P.S. Click through the gallery above for Michael’s GQ cover shoot. I’m SO SURE he had trouble with women before. Puhlease.) [GQ]
Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth? I never knew I wanted it until it happened.
The actress is replacing Natalie Portman, who was originally going to play the scheming Queen. There’s no word on why Portman’s no longer involved, but I don’t even care, because Marion Cotillard! She’s brilliant at scheming and crazy! It’s perfect. She’ll be acting alongside Michael Fassbender, who’s been attached to play Macbeth from the beginning. No other actors have been cast yet, but we do know the film is being directed by relative newcomer Justin Kurzel and produced by the team behind “The King’s Speech” and “Shame.” Read more at The Mary Sue…
It’s photographed from a distance, and it’s a bit grainy, and it’s part of a scene for a movie, but when it comes down to it, all that matters is that this is a picture of Michael Fassbender giving Ryan Gosling a massage. Otherwise known as proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. [Buzzfeed]
Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron are both undeniably gorgeous human beings and outstanding performers, so naturally I’m a fan regardless of how they play it. The “Prometheus” co-stars landed the August cover of W Magazine, and while there is basically no photograph in the world that could make these two look bad, I can’t help but feel like something is a little off. Fassy just looks so worried, and Charlize’s head is at a weird angle, and there are so many arms and hands and elbows involved that it all comes off as being awkward to me. Am I imagining things? Do you think this cover photo does the spectacular actors justice, or is it not quite what you expected? Also, for what it’s worth, if it is worth anything at all: they are both wearing lambskin.
Before things get awkward here, I feel the need to make a disclaimer that talk of Michael Fassbender’s penis (or him in general) does not come without an acknowledgement of the horrific domestic violence charges that were brought against him by an ex-girlfriend and later dropped. I take these charges seriously and they indeed color my view of Mr. Fassbender. You may read more about the details here.
That being said: I am here to talk about amateur drawings of his penis. I saw Michael Fassbender’s dong (heretofore referred to as Fassdong) ever so briefly in “Shame.” Although I didn’t commit Fassdong to memory, I just remember it was very large. So large, that my friend who I saw the movie with and I still discuss it occasionally. Some seem to believe that Ridley Scott’s latest film, “Prometheus,” used the legend of the Fassdong to distract people from the fact that the film sucked. I haven’t seen it yet, so I’m in no position to weigh in. Vice Magazine, wondering how many people would see a movie solely for the fame of its lead penis, challenged audience members at the London premiere of the film to draw their own version of Fassdong.
