Thanks OP. I'm looking forward to seeing The Counselor.
You're welcome R1.
I've been looking forward to The Counselor too, it opens tomorrow.
More Fassbender can't be bad and Bardem is always worth a shot. I question the inclusion of Cameron Diaz (in anything) but people who've seen it say she's good in this.
Any gossip on who he's fucking these days?
Everyone within range, R3, sadly "everyone" means everyone with vaginas.
I thought he was fucking some Olympian.
R6 Sorry, but I'm married now.
That ended a while ago, R6.
Some critics say he's bad in the Counselor.
Oh really R9, everything I've heard has been good but then I really haven't dug too far. Does he have any chemistry with Penelope Cruz in this? He seems to have a problem with that. In Jane Eyre it was especially noticeable.
Yeah, I didn't care for his Rochester interpretation and, no, I don't think he has chemistry with Cruz which surprises me. The guy is so sexy but I haven't seen him have chemistry with anyone yet.
Interesting R11... and you're right it's a very odd problem. He's got so much sex appeal but never really seems to connect with his female costars. He's such a talented, charismatic actor you'd think it would be no difficulty at all. I wonder what's up with that.
He had chemistry with James Mcavoy in X-Men.
He had chemistry with the little girl in Fish Tank.
Fuck me slowly, Fassy.
[quote]He had chemistry with James Mcavoy in X-Men.
Yet he was fucking Zoe.
He likes chocolate.
I think chemistry is created over the course of a few scenes especially if there is something impeding a relationship. I'm thinking of Pitt and Ormond in "Legends of the Fall." I don't think you can rush it or place people in bed together right off the bat like in "The Counselor" and expect people to feel their chemistry. It doesn't work for me anyway.
I don't know about McAvoy but the way they joke around sometimes seems similar to flirtation.
Looks like he has bad breath
I thought there was some chemistry between him and Nicole Beharie in "Shame".
R17, I don't think Michael exclusively dates black women. He screws all types of women.
Fassbender-the F is silent
He's supposed to be really fucked up in the head isn't he?
Michael and Nichole dated for awhile.
You're right R21, he also dates Asian and mixed race women. And in a pinch he'll fuck white women although they aren't his first pick.
There's a lot of wishful thinking going on here.
Has anyone seen the movie yet? Any Fassbender shirtless, nudity or bulges to be seen?
His favorite movie is PTA's Magnolia. Watch it and you'll understand why he digs it.
I now I'm gonna get chewed, but I think he has some racial issues. I'm not going to use the ugly r****t word here. And yes, he's looking tired and rough.
I think he's super attractive. I like his rugged masculinity. Excellent actor also.
Apparently he's now officially over people talking about his dick.
R35 He's in the habit of yelling at waitresses and apparently tries to screw anything with a skirt. He also has a bad temper when drunk and tries to punch your lights out if you bitch about his drinking. I guess you can judge from that. It doesn't look too good. He has charisma for sure, but at some point he'll do something that the PR wizards can't control. Unless he stops drinking and womanizing.
Has he decided to get off his ass and campaign for 12YAS and his supporting oscar this year or is he going to sit it out at home as he's threatened?
R38 He's filming a western in New Zealand atm. I'm sure he'll show up at the red carpet in March, but he's laying low now.
Show up in March? Too late. He needs to attend a few of the guild events and participate in some of the upcoming support work for the film (in Jan-Feb) to matter. Voting goes late this year, to the end of February.
Not a time to "lay low". He's got a real shot at the Oscar. And his presence would be a boost for the film's chances as well, although it's already a frontrunner.
R40, He has said he's done with campaigning. All the had to do for "Shame" wore him out. He was nominated for a Golden Globe without campaigning he could still get an Oscar nomination.
Prometheus was not very good. It was a major dissapontment for me but Fassbender was really great in it.
R37: Where did you hear all that, Groovy Mama? The yelling at waitresses thing I thought came from an article where he got annoyed when a server tried to take his plate before he was finished (which admittedly annoys me too), and was then inflated to "yelling at waitresses" by that gossip blogger Lainey. I haven't heard about the angry drunk stuff, so I'm curious.
R45 I'm sure the case of his ex-gf pressing charges is known. Fassbender talked in an interview about the incident and going to therapy with his girlfriend once. Apparently he didn't get anything out of it, being Catholic. www.tmz.com/2010/03/23/inglourious-basterds-restraining-order-michael-fessbender/
r43 the nomination is in the bag; it's the WIN he's going to lose out on. Leto is not a slam dunk, most film critics have Fassy right behind him on their lists.
Plus his presence will help the movie and McQueen with Ampas voters, as it will be neck and neck with Gravity and Cuaron up to the end.
The Academy is finally honoring McQueen after oversights and it could appear a bit ungrateful if Fassbender decides to thumb his nose at the process now that the accolades have rolled in.
After watching the clip at R42, I wonder if Fassbender and Charlize Theron had something going on......
Michael Fassbender in Mario Testino photoshoot for GQ.
Hot as hell.
Fassbender is sizzling hot. Unfortunately not much new tea on him because he's been filming in New Zealand for the last couple of months. The only press he got outside of the latest GQ Cover photo (where he's smoking hot) were some pictures taken of him in NZ on the outdoor set where he was urinating into some bushes. It didn't show any of his anatomy.
Hopefully, once he returns from Kiwiland there will be more tea.
He's attending GG tonight and he has been seen at some parties.
