Michael Fassbender loves him some Brad Pitt. The two first worked together on 2009’s ‘Inglourious Basterds.’ Since then, they’ve gone on to do two more movies together. ‘The Counselor’ and ’12 Years a Slave.’
At a screening of ‘The Counselor’ in NYC last night, Michael gushed about Brad. “Brad is a wonderful human being who has a generous soul,” Fassbender, 36, told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Cinema Society and Emporio Armani screening of his new film The Counselor in New York. “I have a lot of reasons to thank him. He has always been a real champion for me.”
In addition to The Counselor, the Irish-German actor reteams with his Basterds costar in the Oscar-buzzy movie 12 Years a Slave, opening Oct. 18.
“After we first worked together, he was talking to a lot of people in Hollywood about me, and I really thank him for doing that,” says the brooding X-Men and Shame star.
“Brad not only supported me, but he also encouraged and helped other young talent. He is one of those guys that we need in the industry.”
Fassbender adds, “12 Years a Slave wouldn’t have happened without Brad and his company, Plan B. I’m very grateful that he became a part of it.”
Now that the two hunks have become close professional colleagues, is there a possible bromance brewing between them?
“I don’t know about that, because he never returns my phone calls or emails,” Fassbender joked. “I’ve been following him ever since. I’m trying to get involved in any film he’s doing so I can be with him!”
All I have to say is – I’d be perfectly fine with some more Brad on Michael love. Who’s with me?
Kanye thinks that Kim deserves her own star on the Walk of Fame. (Don’t celebrities just buy them for themselves, anyway?)
“There’s no way that Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame,” the rapper said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, Oct. 9.
And what did Kim think about her boyfriend’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel, which she watched backstage with daughter North West?
“This Jimmy Kimmel interview is the truth!,” the E! star tweeted.
And baby Nori received a cute gift from Kimmel: a tiny pair of black leather jogging pants. So precious! But Kimmel admitted he didn’t think the unique fashion choice is a practical article of clothing.
“Fashion isn’t always practical, it’s more about a motion, it’s about swag,” West said.
