I'll Fass Your Bender

And today is Michael Fassbender's 36th birthday! Is it just like Hot Stars with Accents Week? Because I'm obviously totally down. Let's phone Mr. President and get this made into a national holiday! I'm counting on you.

Look, this is Fassy, right? Even if you've never thought of Ewan McGregor as sexy, you've definitely thought about Fassy once or twice or all the time. So why torture you with words? Let's get to the good stuff.

 Okay.  A few words. Just because what comes out of his mouth is as lovely as looking at him. Well. Nearly. Objectifying for the win!

"I did [Jane Eyre] because my mother and my sister are really big fans of the book, and I wanted to see what they would think of the Rochester that I would bring to the table. That's the first reason I wanted to do it. I like that the characters are ugly and they're beautiful and they're cruel and they're nurturing. There's so much complexity to the characters, they're so well-written, and I find that interesting. There's ambiguity within the characters, and that's what really attracted me to it, to the performance."

"The problem is, we feel a lot of pressure about looking silly or appearing weak, whatever that means, or being a failure. You have to keep in your head: what's the worst that can happen? I'm trying to tell a story - what's the worst that can happen? You fall flat on your face, then hopefully you get back up again and go for it again and try something else. We're all going to die one day. I'm stealing that off Steve [McQueen]; it's what he'd say when he ordered me to take my clothes off. 'WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE ONE DAY!'"

[on being nude in films and full frontal nudity] "To be honest with you again, I think it's the idea of male frontal nudity. It just baffles me: Women can parade around naked all the time, but the guy conveniently has his pants on. I remember my mom always complaining about that to me, saying, "This is such bullshit, it's always the women who are naked" ... so I did this one for you, Mom

"I suppose the German side wants to keep everything in control, and the Irish side wants to wreak havoc."

"I have a theory that everyone's crazy anyway. And those who think they aren't, are the ones who are even crazier - because they're in denial."

"...but you keep a realism, put AC/DC on, get over it, keep positive."

Also he plays guitar. Do you have any objections to any of this? I thought not.

This is too adorable to be real. Fassy and McAvoy for the win.

He's a natural ginger. And gorgeous. So...you're sold already, amirite?
Crushable said it bestest: "There must be photos out there of puppies with this exact facial expression." And so there are.


I'm sorry this isn't any bigger, you guys. So sorry.

That is what you think it is. You think it's Fassbender and Gosling, right? Right. You're right. That's right. What sweet, sweet righteousness that is.

He's nice looking as a robot. Speaking of, I haven't seen Prometheus, but I did see the promo spot with his character, and I died. Like full-on Rachel Zoe died.

 Ugh, enjoy.
& a vair happy birthday to the Fassbender.
