Michael Fassbender Compared Alicia Vikander To Lupita Nyong’o.


Alicia Vikander is on the September issue of Vanity Fair, talkin’ alllll about her costar and real-life lover Michael Fassbender. Even in the first paragraph of the cover story, the author makes it known that interview took place over Skype…because Vikander was visiting Fassbender in Australia! Ah, rich people love. You can read the full piece here, which is actually pretty interesting (she lived with Icona Pop!). Here are some highlights:

Her years spent in ballet: “My image of myself was not the best. Being in ballet school and being in leotards in front of a mirror I don’t know how many hours a day was quite tough.”

Living in a London flat with Icona Pop & Tove Lo. “It was the dirtiest bachelorette pad you’ve ever seen,” Vikander says. The four girls shared two beds and all their clothes, which they kept in a pile on the floor. She auditioned, unsuccessfully, for Snow White and the Huntsman and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She made 15 “self-tapes” for various American television pilots and got completely ignored. “I didn’t even get a ‘No,’ ” she says—her first taste of Hollywood.

A story from Fassbender: Vikander, Fassbender, and a handful of crew were going to actually live at the lighthouse for the next month during filming. Fassbender was reluctant, thinking, “Is that necessary?” But Vikander didn’t question it. “She doesn’t take anything for granted,” says Fassbender. “With a lot of these actresses coming out, there’s this bravery that you don’t see so much in male actors. . . . I noticed this as well with Lupita [Nyong’o] in 12 Years a Slave—this focus and understanding that there’s an opportunity given to you and you grab it.” Vikander’s determination to get Isabel right inspired Fassbender, an actor who hardly needs improvement, to up his game. “She doesn’t mind taking a character she’s playing to an ugly place. Her level of commitment made me focus and make sure I was as committed.”

Vikander on working with Fassbender: “He was very sweet at letting me in. . . . He was like, ‘Can you please give me a note? What do you think I should do?’ It was such a sweet thing to kind of let me in.” Even Fassbender, who’s abjectly reluctant to speak about his personal relationships, admits, “These things of course sort of spill through to what you’re doing.”

I think Fassbender’s comparison of Vikander to Lupita Nyong’o is particularly fascinating because there were rumors that the two also had an on-set romance. I guess bang Fassbender and his magic D will make you a star? Not that Lupita and Alicia both don’t deserve it- oh, they do. I just think it’s interesting- the incestuousness of Hollywood.

Delicious Michael Fassbender Is Single

68th Annual Cannes Film Festival - "Macbeth" Photocall


After 9 months of dating, hot, hot couple Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are no more.

The 38-year-old hunk and the 26-year-old actress/model met on the set of The Light Between Oceans and were last photographed in May at the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco.

This is kind of a different dating experience for Fassbender; he has had a history of dating his screen partners like X-Men: First Class co-star Zoe Kravitz, and Shame costar Nicole Beharie! So maybe his next GF will surface from his new film, Jobs?!

PICS: Michael Fassbender Steps Out In NYC

Michael Fassbender stepped out in New York City with some dry cleaning draped over his back as he prepares himself for the onslaught of questions he has to endure for his new movie “Frank”.

You see, in the movie, we don’t get to actually see Michael’s devilishly handsome good looks — because he wears a papier-mâché head the entire movie.

Of playing the music in the film, Michael said, “We had a lot of fun whenever we were playing the music. We always kind of got reprimanded for going into what we called the ‘funk tunnel,’ where we sort of went on Michael McDonald tangents. So that was fun.”

Are you going to see “Frank” when it comes out?

OSCARS PICTURE POST: Kerry Washington, Bradley Cooper, Michael Fassbender and Chris Hemsworth!

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals A4

Which woman had the better pregnant style? Kerry Washington or Elsa Pataky? I think Kerry wins, hands down. I don’t get Elsa’s dress. It looks so….. oddly shaped.
