Michael Fassbender Did 'Frank' Because It 'Made Me Laugh Out Loud'!

Michael Fassbender Did 'Frank' Because It 'Made Me Laugh Out Loud'!

Michael Fassbender gives a smoldering stare as he arrives at the Frank screening during the Sundance London Film and Music Festival 2014 held at the 02 Arena on Friday (April 25) in London, England.

The 37-year-old actor was joined by his co-star Domhnall Gleeson and their director Lenny Abrahamson.

“The script just made me laugh out loud,” Michael told The Guardian about choosing the film. “I thought there were also poignant moments there. It’s a very unusual story, a real standalone. If it’s refreshing to read, it’s hopefully refreshing to watch.”

I know he does not read here but I want to congratulate him on ridding himself of his last before his present. Wise move. Life of misery with that for certain.

# 2

Michael should be called ‘Big ****’, those jeans, that bulge.

# 3

Hope the movie does well! I love that jacket, the color looks so good on him.

# 4

I just hope that some kind of headhunter finds me to make movies like this.

@GFW: You said you wished her well and wouldn’t comment on her anymore yet here you are running her down again, in a jealous snit. I’m so glad I divorced you, you mentally ill fat ass.

‘A Dangerous Method’ director David Cronenberg talks white-hot leading man, Michael Fassbender

@Daria K. from Virginia: Well nasty POS now you are the one continuing the subject matter that Fassbender fans closed the door on long ago and we all agree with GFW’s sentiment. So move on. Why are you trolling Fassy threads anyway?

@Interesting: what video is that?

@worth noting:

Michael being interviewed by Strombo. Watch on youtube

I’ve noticed a few things about Fassy. Yes, he’s a brilliant actor, a great interview, and has a lot of potential to star in just about any type of film because he’s flexible. He loves his family and friends and has a lot of friends. He seems nice and laid back but I think he’s not. He’s restless and one of those people who isn’t happy with what they have. They’re always searching, yearning for something more. This is why he isn’t going to settle with one woman. He samples the goods and then moves on.

Can’t help but compare him to Gerard Butler who travels with a posse. Gerry has his boys, his mates, the ones he’s seen with all over the world in his travels. I don’t think Gerry can be alone whereas Fassy can go anywhere by himself and not think twice about it.

Gerry has to have a bodyguard now while he’s filming in Sydney. He’s with the guy all the time now. Fassy doesn’t seem to need one at all. What’s up with that? Gerry is just a mediocre actor, why the hype? It’s weird, really. Fassy is way better an actor and doesn’t need a bodyguard at all. Not that I’ve seen, anyway.

What? Who cares. The entire planet is falling apart, we have the most idiotic dumb a s s in the White House and the rest of them running Congress, we are not safe, Putin is rebuilding his communist Soviet Union at a rapid pace, muslim extremists are reconstituting like mad. We don’t have jobs, food-gas-housing-cost of living is at an all time high and now our IDIOT president is taking health care from everyone in order to provide it for illegals.

And all he can talk about is racism and global warming. NO ONE GIVES A DAMN about these stupid non-issues! Where is the President? DO WE HAVE ONE? WE NEED LEADERSHIP, not racial and class division!

Wake up fellow Americans, it’s time to protest the he ll out of the mess in DC right now. America is weak and falling apart!

@78910: I agree with your views, that’s the way he comes across to me as well. Don’t know anything about Gerard Butler and dont want to, mediocre actor at best and neither his looks nor personality interest me. But MF is talented, funny and interesting as well as hot! I also noticed when the credits roll at the end of films he never has any personal assistants/security etc that so many of them can’t live without. Think I saw a driver for him listed once! The guy leads a simple life not much diferent to before he was well known, likes a drink, a laugh, gokarting and female company and doesn’t take himself too seriously. Maybe he never
will settle down with one woman but he’s been straight saying he’s not looking for a life partner at this juncture. Whatever hes doing what he wants and sowing his wild oats while the sun shines. Hope his career goes from strenggth to strength, exciting actor!

@worth noting:
Wrong. His whole image is created by forfeit. His publicist is Paula Woods, who was thanked by Mickey Rourke with these words:

“I want to thank my publicist, Paula Woods, for having the hardest job in show business – telling me where to go, what to do, when to do it, what to eat, how to dress, what to f***.” (2009)

@open eyes: Just because Fassy has the same publicist as Rourke doesn’t mean he’s doing what Rourke did to get PR. I don’t see Fassy as gunning to get into the best clubs, strolling down Rodeo Drive on shopping sprees, advertising expensive watches and sports cars, or trying to be a jetsetter. He seems humble and grounded. His only vice seems to be occasional drinks and ******** around with as many women as he can. He’s a 37 year old man who loves to walk on the wild side but he’s not pretentious and egotistical and showoff-ish like Gerry Butler seems to be.

I find Fassbender a real puzzle. On the one hand he seems to be a really nice guy, down to earth, close to his family etc, on the other he is apparently a drink/drug/sex addict who often behaves appallingly and recklessly! Yet I am surprised that there is seemingly little comment about this on social media where a lot of the ordinary people he would meet in pubs, clubs etc would spend a lot of time.
I love the speculation about his PR lady but have say that whenever I see her hovering during interviews she seems to be keeping an close eye on proceedings, time, schedule etc and a look or gesture to the interviewer will bring the interview to a close when it is time for Fassy to move on.
I get the impression that Fassy loves to be working but doesn’t like all the promotional stuff. I feel that he finds the awards season a strain and doesn’t really want to be there. In all the interviews I have read or seen it is as though he flicks a switch, goes onto autopilot and churns out the same old rubbish that he thinks people probably want to hear but doesn’t actually reveal anything of himself. The promotional video for X-Men was hilarious. He had a fixed, insincere smile, almost a grimace and you could almost hear him thinking ‘WTF I can’t believe I am doing this!’.
Would love to sit him down over a beer and say ‘Now Michael, tell me about yourself’

Ha I like what u said there. He problably needs someone real ie no one famous to really sit and have a serious meaningful convo. Hes a hard worker and for the next few years its gonna be movies, promo work, awards with a lil downtime in between and of course the hookups. If he can spend time around down to earth ppl, take some time away from the spotlight I think hed be great.

@Bookworm @ 04/29/2014 at 8:02 pm

@Bookworm: Cute as a description. Very. But you should explain why a man so seemingly impatient with all the promotion stuff, so down to earth, decides to attend women who live for the spotlight, fake and plastic.

Well that’s the puzzle isn’t it? That’s the enigma and that’s what I would like to ask him.


Maybe Michael isn’t so down to Earth? Maybe Michael just wants people to believe he is down to Earth because he believes that will increase his credibility with folks and mass appeal, just in the same way a girl like Jennifer Lawrence flips off the paparazzi all the time yet does high profile movie after high profile movie, thereby increasing her exposure and chance of being a target for the paparazzi. If she hated it so much, she would choose another lot in life. Even Micheal said it himself. Actions SPEAK LOUDER than words. What difference does his words mean, when his ACTIONS betray his words?

He says he’s all about the quality of the art, yet, it is clear his first decision in whether to do a movie is the “director.” The director is not the story, script or art. So, it’s not about the art, but rather he is is a “people” follower and connection builder, i.e.., social climber. Not necessarily anything wrong with that. But, why lie about it? Same with his female companions. Maiko and Zoe. Famous parents. Social climbing element? I suspect possibly, yes. Anything wrong with it? Not nessecarily. European monarchies did it. But, why the effort to say he’s all about friendship and hometown values, etc., then? Michael says he wants a strong woman with a great character, and yet gravitates towards fame ***** narcissists with tons of plastic surgery and who look like they pretty much trade sex to get ahead, and who look down on other human beings. Seems he is most comfortable with women like that. That speaks volumes and says tons about who HE is, don’t you think?

I mean, is it possible that MIchael is just a good con artist? When his actions don’t match his words? The question is who is he conning? The studio, his fans, the women he is with, his family, his friends, or himself? Sorry to disappoint. But, he is neither unique nor special in this regard. He is just like most everyone else in the world.

And, especially if he is addicted to drugs or alcohol, I heard an addiction counselor recently say this: “Addicts lie. They just do.”
