Fassbender Beat Up His Girlfriend Who He Just Got Back Together With?
The actor who plays the British Lieutenant in "Inglourious Basterds" allegedly broke his ex-girlfriend's nose after a night of heavy boozing ... and now she wants protection from a judge, and stat.
Michael Fassbender's ex -- Sunawin Andrews -- filed a petition for a restraining order against him earlier this month in L.A. County Superior Court.
In the documents, Andrews claims Michael hit the bottle hard during a film festival in July of 2009 -- and after he woke up in a puddle of his own urine, he became violent and "threw me over a chair breaking my nose."
Andrews also says Michael allegedly dragged her alongside their car one night after they had an argument about one of her ex-boyfriends ... causing her to twist her left ankle, blow out her left knee cap and burst an ovarian cyst.
Andrews says she fears for her life and wants to keep Michael 100 yards away from herself and her two children -- and wants over $20,000 to help her pay her medical bills from the injuries he allegedly caused.
Repeated attempts to reach Michael's agent were unsuccessful.
I don't think it'll affect his career all that much, R2.
r2, this news has been out there for a very long time, and no one picked up on it, nor cared. He's fine. The fact that this woman went back to him just makes it look bad on her part.
Sure did take her a long time to file. She must've been waiting for his career ascendance to raise her own profile.
He probably abused her with that big dick of his! She's probably all ripped up inside.
What career? No one is going to remember this guy in five years.
This was a bit surprising to read. He seems mind mannered in interviews. I wouldn't completely discount her story though. You just never know what happens behind closed doors. Regardless, it does taint his image.
The chick is shady as hell. A starfucker who collects industry men and lives off the checks. This wasn't even the first time she'd filed such charges against a guy and then dropped them.
On the other hand, I think Fassbender lives hard, and it's not out of the question that he did some crazy shit to her. She also used to be with Terence Howard, who as everyone knows has also been slapped with domestic violence charges by another woman. So there could be a pattern there.
It really is six of one and a half dozen of the other. Based on what's publicly known, you could make a solid case either way.
R7, it's too soon to know that.
I think he did it - why would he take her back if she falsely accused him?
[quote]What career? No one is going to remember this guy in five years.
Think again. Fassbender is now getting every role in Hollywood. He's immensely talented, and that cock of his will get him very far with a female audience. He's going to huge! He has the sex appeal down to a science, and he's not getting romcom offers. He's in "Prometheus". He first started making waves in "Inglorious Bastards".
R11- I agree, that makes him look guilty. If someone falsely accused me of battery, filed a restraining order, etc.. and then I go back to them, something is up.
Look, he's guilty. The end. The sad thing is that this won't affect his career. and that says a lot about the industry he's in and about the fans.
This happened a while ago. I saw something when it first happened but it quickly disappeared. Most recently, she said she didn't want to ruin his career (which was just getting hot). If I remember where I read her quote, I'll come back and post.
Though this will be swept under the rug again.
I wonder if his other gf's (like Zoe Kravitz) know about this?
-- and wants over $20,000 to help her pay her medical bills from the injuries he allegedly caused.
hmm im sure the 20 thousand has nothing to do with her taking him to court
How does he drink so much and keep that amazing fat-free body?
Men's Health should publish the Fassbender Diet.
[quote]I don't think it'll affect his career all that much, [R2].
He was not that great in Prometheus..
[quote]He's fine. The fact that this woman went back to him just makes it look bad on her part.
Yes, genuinely abused girlfriends never go back to their boyfriends--we all know that.
That she went back to him means that he's innocent and good, and that either she must have been lying originally about being beat up or that she was asking for it.
Will he be pilloried like Chris Brown or is he just too ... white?
No, r24, he's too old and foreign.
Too bad about him.
She isn't lying. you know how some of those Irish men behave when they get drunk.
Chris Brown O'Connor
I don't get his appeal, he has a very creepy smile, and the fact that he is working non-stop makes me think his career is over sooner than later.
Not so sure about his talent either. He is OK but not really great. I wonder what a really great character actor would have done as Brandon in Shame. Just because you don't mind being naked in front of the camera does not automatically mean you are immensely talented.
I've seen a couple of his films and I think he is a very compelling actor. He is way better than those wooden actors like Brad Pitt and Mark Wahlberg. Michael is a very intelligent actor. He just needs that one movie role that will make him a household name.
But he has a giant, uncut dick so that makes everything ok and all is forgiven.
r29 has seen to many Brad Pitt movies, and doesn't know quiet, nuanced acting.
MF did a million different things in Shame, all of them subtle, realistic and to great effect. Showing his penis was the least of his accomplishments, hon.
And he was easily the best thing about the horrid Prometheus, r22. He put Peter O'Toole in a Bowie blender, and out came a smooth, creepy performance. Not anyone can do that.
About this story: who knows what is true, exaggerated, or a lie.
In any case, he's not Oscar Pistorius, is he.
R32 I don't even like Pitt, what are you talking about. He is shitty in every movie I have seen him in. If Pitt is a benchmark in acting for you than you watching the wrong movies.
Fassbender is miles away from acting giants like Philip Seymour Hoffman, Javier Bardem, both have done more daring sex scenes in movies, and were more believable too. Fassbender is no William H Macy, no RDJ, no Guy Pearce.
Even contemporary colleagues like Tom Hiddleston are way more talented and accomplished.
Fassbender is hype like Gosling, I don't see him having longevity.
Bitches get stitches.
If I were lucky enough to date Michael Fassbender, I would be the most obedient set of holes he'd ever met.
R34= seriously mentally ill.
He's only 35??? Wow, those men from the UK/Ireland area really do look like shit by the time they reach their 30's.
Shame was one of the worse movies I've ever seen. Take out the nudity and it's not even good enough to be on Lifetime. Jill Clayburgh should have starred in it with Richard Gere. Overwrought, homophobic melodrama.
Liked his cock and his ass. A bit too skinny, and though he's handsome, there's something creepy about his face. He's got a "I fucked my mother on her deathbed" vibe.
He's been dating Cameron Diaz lately.
I worked with him before he was famous and I can't say I'm surprised by any of this.
I wonder why everyone is calling him Irish. His father is German, real German, from Germany.
He was born in Ireland & is therefore Irish. One does not take on the nationality of ones parents. Helloooo!
[quote]I wonder why everyone is calling him Irish. His father is German, real German, from Germany.
His mother is Irish, which makes him half Irish. Also, he grew up in Ireland.
He's Irish because he's an Irish national.
[quote]He was born in Ireland & is therefore Irish. One does not take on the nationality of ones parents. Helloooo!
You understand the difference between nationality and ethnicity, right? Children get duel citizenship all the time when their parents are from different countries. This is what happened in Michael's case. You sound like an idiot.
Fassbender is German and Irish ethnically and nationality. His father is German, his mother is Irish.
He was born in Germany.
Nationality: German and Irish (duel citizenship)
Ethnicity: German (father) and Irish (mother)
You can now move on.
[quote]He was born in Ireland & is therefore Irish.
He was born in Heidelberg, West Germany.
I think r42 is our resident retard.
[quote]Shame was one of the worse movies I've ever seen.

"He's got a "I fucked my mother on her deathbed" vibe"
LOL, I get that vibe from him too. Give it 3 more years and some really creepy stories will appear.
He is not as talented as he likes everybody to believe. Him hooking up with tons of girls, I have no problem with. If he wants to get them all and they are willing to, there is nothing wrong with that.
If I could (not that I ever, LOL) I would get with somebody who is really a sexy beast though - Fassbender has just a big cock, that's it!
"Children get duel citizenship (...) You sound like an idiot"
r50's pussy stinks.
r51 = embarrassed her poor spelling and overall imbecility have been revealed.
Specifically because she herself called out another poster for writing 'worse' and not 'worst' (trolldar her at r47).
Oh, the double irony!
r51? It's DUAL nationality. 'Duel' is something else entirely.
Secondly, MF is Irish, because he grew up in Ireland, speaks with an Irish accent, and identifies as Irish.
It's immaterial how many passports one person possesses.
It's where you grew up that forms your character.
He is Irish, not German.
"It's where you grew up that forms your character"
BS, completely BS
Humans are WAY more complex than that - well maybe with the exception of you, LOL
Well, MF has said he's wary of taking roles in German films because his German is not fluent enough.
Sounds like an Irishman who was acquainted with German culture in his youth, but only 'from the outside'.
The guy is Irish.
He may have a fat free diet or something but his smoking and drinking is taking it's toll. He's kind skeezy.
I always find it amazing when people attribute a characterization according to what country you are from. Like everybody is the same form that country or that country. Especially annoying when you travel oversees and people are surprised or even disappointed when you don't fit into their narrow-minded stereotypical pigeon-hole they formed in their mind regarding people from certain countries.
It's 2013, it's the century of globalisation. Culture is very much global nowadays - and that's a good thing!
"when you travel oversees"
I never ever misspelled a word!
Well, r58, whenever I misspell a word, at least I make sure not to call out other people for misspelling - because I know I'll be fair game for mockery and derision if I do.
r45/r47 is a fool, and needed to be called out.
I thought he was British, he won best British actor at some award show last year. I mean I know he is Irish, but I thought he was anti-Irish and turned British 15 years ago.
Other anti-Irish celebrities are, Seth MacFarlne, Ben Affleck, Ricky Martin, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Silverman, Madonna and many, many more, there are a good few, I don't why that is.
[quote]He is Irish, not German.
His father is German and he was born in Germany. How is he not fucking German as well as Irish? Seriously, have you been tested for a brain tumor?
[quote]Secondly, MF is Irish, because he grew up in Ireland, speaks with an Irish accent, and identifies as Irish.
LMFAO!!! None of that means he's Irish. He's Irish because his mother was Irish, and he moved to Ireland when he was two-years-old. He's German because his father is German, and he was born in Germany.
He's genetically German, and he has German citizenship. What the fuck is your damage?! Did you flunk biology?
Check out Wikipedia if you don't believe me.
[quote][R45]/[R47] is a fool, and needed to be called out.
I really hope you're just simply trolling. No one can be this stupid. You obviously are because I've never read anyone write something so stupid. 'He speaks with an Irish accent' (which he doesn't), so he's Irish. You're a very confused individual, and extremely uneducated. It's that, or your mentally ill, and off your meds.
According to MF himself, he doesn't speak German well. He doesn't identify as German.
Oh, and he does have an Irish accent when he speaks as himself, in interviews.
Finally, you sound more unhinged with every new post, r61.
Are you angry you were exposed as a dummy, not knowing the difference between 'duel' and 'dual'?
Learn some English, and take a chill pill.
r60, he's neither British nor anti-Irish.
He's just an Irish guy with a German father, who's never lived in Germany after age 2.
He grew up deep in the Irish countryside, I think near Tralee, where his parents still live; he was a Catholic altar boy who turned into a drink-happy womanizer as soon as he could.
You don't get more Irish than Michael Fassbender.
"He's genetically German..."
LOL thank you for the input Herr Doktor. Where in Brazil where you exactly?
I think he is very talented, and sex on a stick. I guess he is a drunk too- drunks do those kinds of things all the time. We'll be reading about his rehab as some point like all of 'em.
Careful, r65, or he will ask you to take it out in a duel.
r66...the stick part is correct. He's manorexic.
Any man who beats his girlfriend is a piece of garbage. PERIOD.
I wonder if his father or grandfather were in WW2?
He doesn't really look Irish to me but very very German, especially in that movie with Charlize.
His chin is all German - that jutting Germanic chin (go to Germany you'll see what I mean). He's got it.
You can not seriously be that naive r69.
r66 Not all drunks do that, only violent arsehole drunks.
Fassbender and that big dick of his laying in his piss.
Talented guy going to be in Steve McQueen's next hit 12 years as a slave. I'm surprised by this.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
