Michael Fassbender Is The Sexiest Man Alive

michael fassbender

I’ve never really cared much about Michael Fassbender either way, to be honest – not really my cup of tea, in many respects – but I do know that he’s been pretty universally desired by straight ladies and gay men ever since he got his dick out in Shame a few years back, and that general idea of him being super hot has prevailed ever since. So much so, apparently, that he’s been voted the Sexiest Man Alive by Moviefancentral, a super popular social media site focused on all things movies.

The other nominees included Chris Hemsworth (runner up), Tom Hardy (last year’s winner), Idris Elba, David Duchovny, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jeremy Renner, Karl Urban, Jason Momoa, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, Hugh Jackman, Jason Statham, Daniel Craig, Ryan Gosling, and Luke Evans.

How Jason Momoa didn’t win that competition hands down is beyond me, but whatever. If it was up to me and I had to put them all in order, here’s how it’d go down (because I’m sure you care):

  • Jason Momoa
  • Chris Pratt
  • Idris Elba

You know what, the rest of them aren’t even really on my radar (not that these three are, but you know what I mean).

Anyway, what do you guys think?

Michael Fassbender & Marion Cotillard’s ‘Macbeth’ Trailer Is Here


I don’t necessarily know that we needed another Macbeth remake, but here we are. Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard star in this one, and it actually got a ton of great press at the Cannes Film Festival. It was filmed in the Scottish Highlands, so it’s all very moody and authentic. And actually, it looks pretty good.

Check out the trailer below. I don’t know that I’d pay to see it in the theatre, but it seems to be a pretty quality production.

Michael Fassbender Never Considered Himself Hot

michael fassbender elle 2

Michael Fassbender may be a surefire hit with the ladies now that he’s got some success under his belt (not to mention what else is under his belt for you straight ladies and gay gents, HEY-O!) but turns out, he never really considered that he was a good looking guy, apparently.

From Elle:

“I think of myself as, you know, alright. I used to have bad acne as a teenager, so all of this is a bonus now, the fact that I don’t have pimples anymore.

“And my hair was also, you know, unfortunate. I had really long hair. I mean, I tied it back most of the time, but I had all these frizzy bits coming off the top and whenever I let the hair down, it went like this [indicates big, bushy frizz].”

“I’m not oblivious to it. It’s not like I think I’ve become more charming or good-looking overnight. But, no, I haven’t lost any respect [for women]. I’m an alright judge of character, so you can figure these things out.”

Well, okay. I’m glad he’s getting a lot of ass now, but that’s two interviews in a row where the highlight has been talking about his looks. Does he not have anything better going on in his life to talk about? No awesome roles, no deeper thoughts? Ah, well.

Women Really Like Michael Fassbender Now

And no, it’s not because he whipped it out repeatedly in Shame. No, apparently it’s just his general fame that has the ladies flocking to Michael Fassbender… and he doesn’t really seem to see a problem with that.

From GQ:

“I make a lot more friends, you know what I mean? 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.”

He continued: “I remember I was sitting at this table 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’.”

I could never be famous for a number of reasons, but a major one being that I’m already paranoid and TRUST NO 1 and when you’re famous, that’s all magnified x 100 because you don’t know who’s out to fuck you over or is just using you for your money or any of that. Put that in a romantic perspective and no wonder all these celebrity relationships breakup. Well, that and the fact that you have to trust that the other person isn’t gonna hop into bed with someone else when you’re away for extended periods of time – which in itself takes a toll on the relationship. It’s definitely a sacrifice these stars make, in that sense.

As for ole Fassbender, you know ladies are after The D after seeing it on screen. That and his money is a lethal combo for golddiggers. Hope he finds love soon, if that’s what he’s after!

PS Fun Fact about the photos in this entry: they were shot by Terry Richardson! And wow, he’s CLOTHED and not posing like he’s ready for someone to stick it in any of his orifices! Miracle!

Which Actor Got A Nose Job And Chin Implant?

Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t hot anymore and men want to look like Jon Hamm, according to the latest plastic surgery trends. Details has some interesting stats on cosmetic procedures for men, including one unnamed famous actor who changed his “monster nose.”

In faces, as in fashion, what’s hot changes. Square jaws (think Jon Hamm, Michael Fassbender, Daniel Craig) are in, replacing yesterday’s pert-nose-and-dainty-chin combo (Leonardo DiCaprioZac Efron, Tobey Maguire). “There’s less of a desire now for a conventionally beautiful white-bread face,” says Dr. Steven Teitelbaum, an associate professor of plastic surgery at UCLA School of Medicine. “People are embracing strong features like ethnic, nontraditional noses.” For example, in lieu of full-on rhinoplasty, many men are balancing their naturally big noses with chin implants (which have recently spiked by 71 percent, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons) or opting to have their noses trimmed back.

“I did a rhinoplasty and a chin implant on a famous actor who had a monster nose and no chin. We left a bit of a bump in the nose, so it still looked like his, just a better version,” says Dr. Darrick Antell, assistant clinical professor of surgery at Columbia University. “No one, including the producer on his next project, noticed he’d had a nose job.”

Who do we think it is? Anyone want to make a guess? Our clues are “monster nose” and “no chin.” Which means that after the surgery he had a chin and a nose with “a bit of a bump left so it still looked like his.” I’m guessing Bradley Cooper, because f-ck it.

Also if you thought there was any chance in hell I was going to mention Jon Hamm in an article and not mention his dong, you’d be wrong.

Um, Wow: How They Added “Sex Sounds” to ‘Shame’

I’m still reeling from the Oscar nominations; among others, there is the distinct exclusion of Michael Fassbender. Maybe Shame isn’t the Academy’s style—it’s a relentless sex nightmare about one man’s existential emptiness—but word on the street is, Fassbender deserved a mention for his revelatory, uh, performance.

(And, well, you know, people did mention other things about Fassbender, but I still haven’t seen Shame; I am having trouble weighing how much I won’t enjoy the movie against how much I would enjoy looking at Fassbender. Heh, heh.)

Actor John Moraitis recently penned a column for The Guardian, “How I added sex noises to ‘Shame’,” and it is (ahem) eye-opening:

I’m an actor, and when I’m between roles, my bread-and-butter is something called ADR—additional dialogue recording—where I go to a studio and record background conversations for scenes from films in post-production. It’s often a restaurant scene. You stand at the microphone with another actor, watch a video of the sequence, pick two characters at a table in the background and improvise.

Last summer, I was invited to do ADR for Shame. At the time, we knew nothing about the film. My agent said: “It involves sexual sounds. Do you mind?” I said: “No, it’s just a job. It’s fine.”

The sound engineer kept the sexual stuff till the end. There’s a scene where Michael Fassbender’s character goes to a gay club. At the back of some shots, couples were at it. So I stood at the microphone with another guy and we improvised.


I’d honestly love to reprint the entirety of the Guardian piece (it’s short! And possibly NSFW!), but I arrived at a moment where I was blushing too furiously to go on. Let’s just say that I can barely type “penis” without giggling; the idea of “evoking” a “penis sound” makes me totally unable to function.

You guys, I really probably shouldn’t even try to watch Shame at all, huh.
