Good News! Michael Fassbender Is Still Signed On For 'Assassin's Creed' Movie

Michael Fassbender dons cool reflective sunglasses while saying goodbye to a close gal pal outside a hotel on Friday (August 8) in New York City’s Soho district.

The day before, the 37-year-old actor made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where he chatted about wearing a mask the whole time for Frank.

Michael recently squashed the rumors that he had exited the upcoming film Assassin’s Creed after becoming unhappy with the script.

“I know, I love these rumors! It’s fantastic. People talk about it, and they’re hopefully interested. Nothing has changed, yeah. I’m still a part of Assassin’s Creed, and we’re working on the script as we speak. Actually, I’m going to go back and see the writers when I get back to Europe,” Michael recently shared to IGN.

    @Lena:
    We can agree to disagree.
    I still think that there is a difference between constructive criticism and to argue for arguments sake.
    Anyone can comment about celebrities and their moronic behavior for example, but why do so while engaging in argument towards other posters that borderline being just argumentative for arguments sake? Celebrities and people are very quick to give their opinion without much basis for it. And, persuasion techniques are not employed by posters on these sites.

    Take your comments … you would be more effective in your own blog than here. Now, the question is do you want to be effective? Make comments that argue the economic debacle of many States and Tax subsidies towards the film industry be taken into consideration by many. So they can actually write to their local congressperson.
    Sure, there are plenty of people clicking without writing and I found out first hand what trending was with the SWSNBN Thread, so you could have readers … but after they read … do they write their local legislator?
    —-
    I believe in change and if the system does not work you should feel free to implode the darn thing. Judiciaries not having $$$ ??… I can give you a bit of light on that one … governments don’t know how to manage money. Legislature not having $$ … find out how much money there is for their advisors. Tax subsidies for films … we need to attack all subsidies … oil, gas, etc.

    The reality is …. who cares about Fassbender? PR Lady? Sure, we are all free to criticize their crap or comment on their crap and call their crap what it is … crap. The more I read about this kid, the more full of himself he seems to be… but if you look all over, the ladies don’t write that they want a relationship with this guy. They usually write that they would not mind a one night stand AFTER giving him a bath in antiseptics and injecting the kid with penciling.

    Let’s be blunt …. if I comment, for example, that Fassbender is not the gentleman people are saying he is …. that comment will get more of a reactions here, than tax subsidies. So sure, you can comment. There is no problem with it. But some forums are not effective forms of communication, they are just places where people argue for arguments sakes. Look at this board right now @really and @really!! are debating AGAIN – if I follow your initial post this is not the 1st time it happened, it happened in 2012- about what type of woman the kid dates!? WTH!

    In all, I rather be effective in what I do … and to look for change in the system you need to find a better way to persuade your audience and arguments for arguments sake are not it.

    Take care.

    Ok?

    Words of Zoe Saldana suspected that comment is about Bradley Cooper. Shows the difference in levels of maturity of her and Zoe Kravitz. If only she could see….

    “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”

    What could be worse than a social climbing “it’s not what you know but WHO you know,” “it’s not the story they come to see but rather me me me me….even when I sing poorly and wear a creepy mask” passive aggressive “PR lady co-dependent” burn out? I finally looked at that Colbert Report interview. Where on national television Fassbender says he wanted to “get high.” What a burn out loser.
    ….
    And, if anyone saw the comments after the music video, very critical and some people seemed very hostile at them wasting their time like that. Basically, the gist was that his voice sucked, the lyrics, and music sucked, and great musicians struggle for years, and here is this really bad band displayed on Colbert. Just because the guy is an actor who wants to be a rock star. I think Jared Leto was mentioned too. (Lena shakes head in agreement in that one…LOL. :)…)

    People said they were changing the channel. Then other folks were trying to defend saying “it’s a joke.” FAIL. “This Is Spinal Tap,” one of the BEST parody movies about a rock band of all time, one of MY favorite movies EVER is the way it’s done. I have lines memorized (as do legions of others). It was so AWESOME! That’s the way you do parody of a rock band if you want to make a comedy. FRANK is a dumb idea, and the comments afterwards reflected it.

    Spinal Tap’s songs are catchy. I have an album. And hilarious in their words. The stars of Frank are telling you it’s a joke and then they hop on stage and look serious. And the lyrics are serious and they hire a real musician to give legitimacy to Fassbender’s insane run at rockstardom? Oh dear…Who could forget Stonehenge from Spinal Tap juxtaposed against dark druid rock cmusic and the dwarves crushing it? Or the body snatcher POD that wouldn’t open and the roadies working on it during the song and Derek Smalls emerged when everyone else finished the song and were safely nestled back in theirs? Hilarious!

    Before even seeing it, you can see FRANK is trying to take itself serious and it’s seriously a joke. Spinal Tap is not trying to take itself so serious, and it is seriously hilarious and a cinematic classic.

    And the WORST part is I bet PR lady was plopped in her seat at the Colbert Report taping planning her next big Fassbender photobomb and shopping spree at Jurlique…:)…for some fresh anti-aging products and maybe a trip to the zazzle Fassinating Fassbender dimestore cheap @$$ zombie worship center to buy some “Stay Calm and Fassbender On” knee patches. And to sew them on, special thread made out of Fassbender hair carefully collected by years of crawling on the red carpet looking for strands shed by him during the red carpet walk by. LOL. :)

    Seriously…. no…seriously…

  • Lena

    Music not cmusic. Like it matters. This burn out Fassbender actually named his band, Smurfsbpds, or whatever… I’m not bothering to try to spell that right either, after hiring a so called legitimate and real drummer (albeit not a very good one…everyone else probably said no thanks) to anchor the band all the way to sinking to the bottom of the ocean. Serves him right for trying to make a rock song while ripping off this song and idea…LOL :)

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wY9O4M8DS7c

    I mean, shoot, maybe even the whole story line, down to the musician struggle, the puppet mask, the simple name of the lead…Don =Frank??? But, the music and lyrics definitely sound about the same to me…LOL :). We’ll see if his dumb theory of “it doesn’t matter how bad it is as long as people are curious” works out at the box office. That ought to be interesting.

  • What?

    @Sad but True:
    Quotes from Zoe Saldana? Seriously? She’s a good looking woman. But why does she always complain in every interview? She acts like such a bad as.s tough girl but it’s like, honey please don’t even pretend like your looks aren’t the reason your even remotely famous.
    I haven’t read a single interview from this woman where she’s not complaining about something. Oh boo-boo, life is sooooo hard being a gorgeous rich actress. Give me a break!
    She gets all mad at ‘weak women’ and yet this trick makes her living off her looks. Which is about as weak as you can get. Tired trick. Same tired story. Over her.

  • Get your hand off it

    @Lena: Oh for god’s sake Lena, change the b##dy record. You are so boring in your ranting and raving, I bet you still haven’t seen Frank and so your comments are still irrelevant. You are an effing head case. Go save a cat or whatever it is you claim to do. If you are as annoying in real life as you are on this board I pity those that have to deal with you.

  • Lena

    @Get your hand off it: 

    Let me try to wrap my mind around your discombobulation. Your moniker is “get your hand off it.” Yet, you’re 1. wondering about me in your free time 2. telling me what to do with my life 3. so obsessed with me that you’re engaging in a classic Just Jared EQ test and psychological assessment of me (and…I am not THAT boring, or, I wouldn’t be the 1 out of 7,000,000,000 chosen by the extremely interesting, witty, charismatic, and charming you…lol…for that exercise), and 4. you’re so “into” me that you find yourself empathizing w/ strangers who wouldn’t know you from Adam, and couldn’t care less about you, all b/c they know me, me, me… Oh dear…. Where’s that number to the restraining order office again???? Not ANOTHER obsessed admirer….Oh dear…….LOL :).
    ….
    Lena rushes to find the “restraining order office number” and after tearing apart her home in a frantic search, FINALLY locates it….sighs. It’s in her very clever handy dandy restaurant “to go” 3 ring binder where she keeps all her “to go” menus in a convenient centralized location all laminated and nice. In between Chinese and Italian restaurants. Lena finds the restraining order office brochure but her eyes are distracted by the “buy one get one free pizza” special at Frank’s New York Pizza and decides to invite all her cat lady friends over for a “Pin the tail ON the donkey” themed “pizza party” instead. Donkey=Jack@$$= nee…”Get Your Hand OFF It.”. The IRONY…..

    Lena and her friends will NOT be watching FRANK because despite a tsunami of journalist article advertising, and despite Lena living in a large cosmopolitan city which is often focus of local/ international news, a favorite test market, a place where things seem to happen, and world affecting decisions are made, Lena doesn’t see this “trying soooooooo hard” to be funny dramedy playing anywhere near her.
    ….
    By the way, New Mexico taxpayers PAID to make FRANK, but I also saw no theaters there showing it. EVER…? But, apparently, FRANK’s going to be a HUGE hit in Azerbaijan, Turkey, Bosnia and Japan where, good news folks there, it will be soon coming to a theater near you.
    ….
    Seriously, is this going straight to DVD or what??? I saw they showed it at every conceivable friggin Film Festival…??? Sarcasm. Is that what cinema has deteriorated to? Go become a filmmaker, get FREE taxpayer funds from a state. Give vendors of THAT state no chance to sell popcorn and candy to recoup a penny of FREE $$$ million dollar giveaways to foreign filmmakers. Then go show your arty pretentious film at snooty film festivals, get booked on tv shows to advertise the film, and get critics to review it for when it goes straight to DVD after a brief stopover in Azerbaijan?
    ….
    Again, is it about entertaining AUDIENCES? Or Michael getting an opportunity to show off and get attention? He needs to grow up.

    I also saw an article where they were discussing how filmmakers go to these festivals and a huge topic of discussion is “are there any incentives left?” The article was about Florida. Florida just suspended its $296,000,000 Hollywood corporate free gift of taxpayer money giveaway b/c the fund was supposed to last until 2016 but Hollywood greed sucked program money dry 2 yrs early. The ENTIRE court system budget for Florida, I read for 2013 was around $500,000,000. That serves 19,000,000 people. A mere handful of Hollywood millionaires got more than 1/2 the ENTIRE state judicial budget to make movies, and like FRANK in New Mexico, enjoy their profits and returns elsewhere w/ little benefit to the state. And Florida courts needed an emergency loan of $45,000,000 +-to keep operating (?) around 2011 w/a $169,000,000 +- shortfall (debt) around then as well. While Florida star struck legislators gave $$$ to greedy Hollywood, Florida courts were in crisis. 

    I read in a recent Louisiana budget, the court system which supports 4.5 million people, was allotted approx $162,000,000 while a handful of Hollywood filmmakers were given more FREE taxpayer money at $167,000,000. One of those recent films was 12YAS. That’s a very expensive Oscar footnote for the state in my opinion. Especially when the state auditor said the giveaway does not economically benefit LA that much.

    So, I read Hollywood is getting ready to lobby Florida for another $1 billion FREE taxpayer money to supposedly cover their greed until 2020? Amazing. 

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/01/28/3898732/with-florida-film-incentives-drying.html

    So, these people go to film festivals, drink champagne at exclusive parties, eat hors d’oeuvres and talk about how to go fetch taxpayer money from ordinary citizens of states??? Wow…

  • Lena

    And, I think Gavin Polone makes great points on this article. What possessed 42 states in the union to usurp the economy of its sister state California?

    http://www.vulture.com/m/2011/10 runaway_film_production_tax_cr.html

    When, Hollywood, before this mess began in 1992, was making good movies. Why? Because the citizens of California know HOW to make movies. They’ve been doing it for a hundred years. That’s where the skill, infrastructure and technology is. It’s not in friggin’ Tennessee, in my opinion. Or Michigan. Washington has government. Michigan has cars. The Carolinas has textiles. Louisiana has oil and energy. New York has international trade. The Midwest has our nation’s crops. Florida has vacation tourism and Disney and fishing and theme parks. Every state has it’s special industry.

    California had movies until all these states got into a race to the bottom war to outspend each other. Leading to poor fiscal responsibility. Strapping citizens with bills. No money to spend other places where needed. No accountability by filmmakers to create movies the public actually wants to go see.

    And while the federal government may have billions of dollars for its budget, if Louisiana is spending just as much money on one of the 3 branches of government (courts at $162,000,000) as it is giving away for FREE to Hollywood, ($167,000,000) you know states operate on very small budgets. So stopping these Hollywood giveaways and forcing Hollywood BACK to California where it belongs will go a long way for the citizens of the state’s. Just my opinion. And, I bet that if movie makers have to go back to relying on profit rather than the crutch of taxpayer subsidies, the work product will get better. Everyone will be happy. :)
    ….
    Gee whiz, even a 0% interest LOAN would be better for everyone in the states than this race to the bottom structure. Just my opinion.
    ….
    Okay, so you don’t want me talking about this some folks here? Well, why don’t you tell Fassbender to stop making dopey movies with taxpayer subsidies where he thereafter goes on press tours to try to sell them (ridiculously) as useful public service announcements addressing mental illness education?
    ….
    If he can use taxpayer money to do that, why am I limited to making statements like “his eyes are dreamy”, “his butt is firm” (LOL…:). Why can’t I talk about seeing nightmare taxpayer spending for films including his, and that he seems so tight and pretentious (like McQueen) that if one were to shove a piece of coal up his butt, he could possibly produce a diamond faster than a college student could make dinner with a ramen cup o noodles in a dorm room microwave? LOL. :). Just my opinion….lol…:) I’m just sayin….free speech goes both ways eh? (Hypothetical scenario just to prove a point… calm down everyone…lol…. :)…)
    ….
    I mean, who would he be to object to someone like me talking about taxpayer funding related to a paper mache head movie when he, the star, goes on tv and wants to connect that ISH to a public service announcement about “mental illness?.” Why are we limited to discussions of HIS public service announcement surrounding the film? Anyone? Anyone? I don’t think we should be…

    I know many thought this pairing or hookup never happened but I suspect it did and may still be on although very casual

  • Lily

    @Michael and Naomi: nah, they hooked up but it’s over. N is a known troll. Everyone suspected they hooked up but there was no confirmation. This is her way of letting us know without really letting us know. Michael never acknowledged/ claimed her and given N’s history of conquests, it’s eating her up that he never did.
    Rumor around town (London) is they hooked up twice and it ended there. Michael is not looking for a relationship. N’s ego is hit because she usually does the letting go and she thought it would last longer. Anyone remember her affair with de Niro? She trolled hard after he dumped her.
    If they get back together it will be on the basis of sex only and it will be on his terms.

  • Lily

    Just wanted to add that it’s believed that she’s not in love with him (how can you be after two sexual encounters) but attracted. And seeing his star rise is a big turn on; Michael is one of the hottest stars around right now. Her being on his arm would make them a hot tabloid couple. N doesn’t need him but she’s not as in demand/ talked about as she once was. Notice she’s been spending time with a lot of m/billionaires in the last decade? She’s in demand in that field if you get what I’m saying? Alot of models, no matter how big they are, do this after their heyday or even during re: Karen Mulder and her story. N is rich but hates spending her own money and enjoys expensive gifts; that’s why m/billionaires are the perfect route for her; keeping up that lifestyle.
    Michael and her have crossed paths before and have been in the same vicinity but she’s never paid him any mind. Now being an Academy nominee and having a recognizable face she was willing to give him her attention.
    N doesn’t need him but wanted what he could bring in terms of media. He also is known for not throwing money away on women so it wouldn’t have lasted long anyway.
    Now this is what I’ve heard from people who claim to know. I don’t know either and never seen them in person. This is all second hand info from me. Just wanted to make that clear!

    @vile

    Now there’s a bit of irony given the moniker name you choose for yourself.

    I’m vile? How? @Lily is talking about Fassbender being a drunk. I don’t drink. I believe heavy drinkers are destructive to relationships and disruptive to others when wasted.

    Did you see the Butler photos? The first one is the bimbo wrapping her leg around him standing up in plain view…does “get a room” seem like good advice? Then there’s one where he’s removing her bikini top to chew on (??) her boo/b. Then, a couple where he’s holding on for dear life to her bu/tt with one that looks like he’s pulling a Robin Thicke thumb up the bu/tt for the Paps shot maneuver. One of the pictures, Butler is looking straight at the camera. This woman doesn’t have the decency to button up her pants in wide open public when she knows the paps are going to be there? He’s looking at the camera?

    I read the PAPS don’t follow people around. Instead, these people (celebrities) need to call them for shots.  

    In my opinion, Butler is yet another pig who sponges off of taxpayers by getting paid for his gluttonous pig lifestyle through movies funded by refundable film tax credits. Then, that’s not good enough. He’s got to call the paps to have himself photographed groping/molesting in public, random after random after random?  To throw it in the faces of EVERY decent family oriented person with impressionable children, that not only can he, as an elite Hollywood insider get away with extracting money from the paychecks of ordinary citizens, through forced and compelled Hollywood film tax grants,  but that he can get away with this VILE sleazy behaviour in public as well as have it shipped by the media to every corner of the planet as more publicity for him, is vile by my standards.  Too bad if you disagree.

    I make NO apologies for believing Gerard Butler is a human petri dish. He’s like 40 something? Years old with some bizarre having to prove he’s really a man complex which makes him have to act like he’s 20 to TRY to prove that he’s a real man. Which, quite frankly, you ask any stable woman who truly and objectively doesn’t allow men to dump on her in her life and she will tell you that he’s repulsive, just like I have. Women who admire guys like that or think his behavior is cute, in my opinion, just have low self-esteem and would let some guy use and discard them, and possibly would do anything to keep even a bad guy around.  Or, they are of an opportunistic mindset and crave money, status, fame, power, who knows.  I don’t have to approve or admire any of it. Or stay silent about public figures engaging in public acts.

    .
    And, honestly, that Fassbender would even consider bedding Naomi Campbell, accomplice to scum of the Earth (child killing/maiming war criminal cannibal supporting despot i.e, Charles Taylor) is a testament to what a scumbag he is. In my opinion. Is there any other polite way of putting it?
    .
    If (I say if…as someone said he hasn’t confirmed a connection) Michael Fassbender is such a drunk blob of a human that is driven by orga/sms so much that he can’t take time to see videos on Naomi Campbell literally snubbing her nose and disrespecting a war crimes tribunal (of the United Nations) which was trying to get justice for children murdered and maimed at the hands of terrorist Charles Taylor (for years), then, I’m not sure why I have a duty to be polite.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ik-7iJR_cA

    As you can see from that video if you watched it, it took months or years of many Human Rights groups to light the fire of justice to bring Charles Taylor to trial. They had to get U.S. support, go into Liberia and Sierra Leon to show those poor people the world wasn’t going to discard them like garbage because they were poor, and powerless.  Then, they had to convince Nigeria to give him up, and get the U.N. Security Council to step up in a landmark move to convict a leader.
    .
    Yet, when the WORLD tribunal asked this selfish gluttonous narcissistic model, Naomi Campbell, to do her humanitarian part for the kids maimed and killed and the untold lost lives of humans cannibalized by brainwashed children fighting for Taylor’s despotic quest for personal wealth and power, she simply  refused summons to testify for months.  Then, when she showed up, she made it a point to tell the court what an “inconvenience” it was for her to have to be there. Atrocious and vile human behavior…in my opinion.
    .
    Charles Taylor used blood diamonds to fund his rebellion.  On a trip to Africa at the invite of Nelson Mandela, over dinner, Charles Taylor promised Naomi Campbell some diamonds.  Later that night, he had some guards deliver her the diamonds.  The significance of this was to link Charles Taylor’s blood diamond funding to his war crimes.
    .
     However, under oath, Naomi claimed she had gotten only some dirty “pebbles” in the middle of the night. Said she didn’t know they were diamonds. And she stopped short of saying that she knew they were from Charles Taylor.  Naomi also snubbed her nose at poor people and said she was used to getting beautiful diamonds wrapped in beautiful packages or something disrespectful (to the thousands of victims of the terror).  That is, she lied to the United Nations at the  Hague War Crimes Tribunal (in my opinion) and denied knowing they were diamonds, denied knowing she was waiting for them, and denied knowing who was giving them to her.
    .
     Mia Farrow and Naomi’s former agent were the heroes as they contradicted her testimony.  In a signed written statement dated November 9, 2009, and testimony, Mia Farrow said that in the morning Naomi told her that she was excited because Charles Taylor had given her a “HUGE” diamond in the middle of the night.  Carol White, Naomi’s former agent contradicted Campbell by testifying that Naomi had been promised the diamonds over dinner by Taylor.
    .
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFkW2tkR52g
    .
    There’s also apparently an ironic side story about the next day (after Campbell knew she had gotten these blood diamonds). Mandela brought the celebrities on tour on a train, to Kimberly, a town in Africa, where they mine for diamonds, and Mandela pushed Naomi Campbell in front of the crowd calling her the most beautiful woman in the world. (Yuk!)….But, he didn’t know what had transpired the night before I presume.  But she did eh?  Who could do that?? Stand before the very people whose lives were being destroyed by your greed and smile while just sponging up their idol worship.

    What kind of an inhuman succubus and lost soul is so greedy and inhumane that they  first refuse the calls of an international war crimes tribunal, then lies to the tribunal? I haven’t even posted the video of her punching the camera and storming away after a reporter asked about it.   Naomi, I believe craves control over humans and power just like Taylor and his ilk.  The difference being degree to behavior.  His bloodshed. Her thrill is getting gifts from guys like him.
    .
    What’s sad is due to celebrity idolatry, people don’t see the same vile persona lurking behind that supermodel airbrushed smile.  Celebrities can be rock bottom humans but still, fools like yourself @vile, dare to come on JJ, and scold me for merely pointing out bad human behavior while giving FREE passes to people who actually commit bad behavior and are subject of my mere criticism/commentary.

    Here is a good video which showcases Naomi’s lies to the U.N. tribunal and hitting the ABC camera when asked about Charles Taylor giving her blood diamonds.
    .

    .

    And, here is a good video where she says she was “inconvenienced” because she was forced to go to the U.N. and testify.  

    .
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjNffa8NaZI
    .

    My heart breaks for that man from Sierra Leon who flew in to testify against Charles Taylor.  He had his hand cut off by Charles Taylor’s men.   And then when they then said they were going to cut off his son’s hand right after that, he begged them to spare his son and take his other hand. Which they did making him a double amputee.
    .
     My heart fills with love for that man and his act of love for his child. My prayers go out to him and I hope God takes notice of his wonderful soul. He, unlike Campbell, was not inconvenienced by testifying against the war criminal. He was a hero to his people. My hope is that someone told him that over and over and over until he accepted that designation. My guess he would never accept being called a hero though….to him, a mere loving gesture from.father to son. To us, something which saved his people and brought them emotional closure and justice. Humanity at its best.

    .
    And Naomi even lied and tried to throw children and charity under the bus.  She said she gave the diamonds to Mandela’s aid to help children, etc.  But, they have no record of receiving such diamonds from her.  Besides, didn’t she testify that she thought they were just dirty pebbles?  That she didn’t know they were diamonds?  Why would she give dirty pebbles to children as a charitable gift?  
    .

    It floors me how people can worship or idolize a woman like Campbell.  So, we ignore atrocities like that, and instead focus on whether she and Fassbender are getting it on sex/ually as some sort of event to admire and worship?  Seriously?

    @vile, while I appreciate the opportunity you have given me here to state what I have, I do have to say…get real….

  • Ooops. Lena is vile.

    @Lena: Sigh. I’ve changed my name to make it clear what I meant. Lena – all your points have nothing to do with the fact that you are constantly spewing venom about other people. In relation to celebrities and their often questionable behaviour – you’re the one who needs to get real. Yes sure – criticise them, they are fair game as they are in the public eye. To an extent. But for God’s sake – you are a total megalomaniac in that anyone who disagrees with you in the slightest is mocked and derided. You are also totally obsessed with these celebrities – and you feel the need to constantly tell everyone how great you are and what you claim to do and what a good person you are. You sound like a pharisee in a temple to me…

  • Lena

    @Ooops. Lena is vile:

    Oh dear… I’m constantly spewing venom???… oh my. Well, it’s not like I ignored a war crimes tribunal subpeona which took years to establish (with lots of countries and groups involved) to try to avenge the lost lives of thousands. And at least I have not taken taxpayer funds while lots of hardworking folks I know file bankruptcy and go through foreclosure yet still dutifully pay taxes to ensure guys like Robert Downey Jr. can make $50,000,000 for 2 months worth of work.
    ….

    Whoa….wait a second… I thought I said this:

    ….
    How was that comment about the ordinary citizen of Sierra Leon filled with “venom?” LOL :) Oh sweetie, you have a strange view of venom filled remarks..
    ——-
    So, my biggest sin is that I boast about doing animal rescue work so that people will join up in the cause and help with trying to save animals who are slaughtered 1 every 20 minutes in pounds all over this country? You must be royally tic/ked off that Fassbender sat the whole “charity” ALS thing out. Has he caved yet??? S1m0ne over at FF was making up some sh/t that it would have been a terrible thing for him to bring attention to himself to do charity. How dumb and ironic. Given that she seems to find the dumbest charity to slave over in “his name” every year. But, there it is…. she (might like you…) do backbends trying to mold your/her ethics and values to be consistent with Mike the idol’s ever changing moods and behavior (however squirrelly and bizarro they are), Oh so forgiving of the atrocities of the rich and famous and holding ordinary folks to such high moral standards eh?

    So, I’m vile for mentioning charity work, and trying to get people to join in to help folks and criticizing the bad behavior of celebrities?. Is that the way it works?. Curious though how you just simply did NOT address any of the points I made. I think you are just mad because Im fast at finding stuff to post.

    Why was what I wrote irrelevant to the discussion? Didn’t that Jaycee or someone say Naomi was getting down with Fassanova? Wouldn’t her character at the UN war crimes tribunal thus be relevant for people to know about in the decision of whether they want to get on board with the dutiful “fandolatry shipping” of their male idol and this divacubbus?

    Golly Oops. Looks like you just don’t have anything to add other than to criticize me. And, weren’t you the one who called me vile? I don’t recall attacking you first. Unless you are Gerard, his new random, ugly PR lady, Fassbender or Naomi, which I seriously doubt. So, hypocrite much??? LOL :)

  • Lena

    @Ooops. Lena is vile:

    And when you say things like this???
    ——
    ” and you feel the need to constantly tell everyone how great you are and what you claim to do and what a good person you are. You sound like a pharisee in a temple to me…”
    ——-
    And there you have it folks. If anyone was wondering why Hollywood is able to get away with siphoning 1.5 billion dollars in taxpayer money from the proverbial “peasants” of America, well, it’s because people like @oops seem to be on board with this bizarre caste system. I mean, gee whiz, the irony is that her idol, Fassbender and his buddies in Hollywood make entire careers out of “constantly tell[ing] everyone” how “great” they are, what “they claim to do and what great people they are. And, they enlist PR folks and agents, and PR campaigns, and farce and beard relationships etc., to convey their messages. And, that is apparently not only OKAY, that is praised and “worshipped.”

    But, apparently, Lena, who is not a Hollywood elite insider is expected to sit down, shut up, stay silent, humble, not question, not cause waves, and most recently dutifully pay taxes to ensure that Hollywood millionaires get even richer off of ordinary folks.

    So, celebrities who do all that are worshipped as Gods, and ordinary folks who dare to discuss what they do for a living or not stick to the topic of praising celebrities online are megalomaniacs? Am I the only one that sees that as being really strange?

    I don’t even know what a pharisee is. That’s too complicated of a word for me.

  • Ooops. Lena is vile.

    @Lena: Jeepers – you are SO RIGHT. I don’t know how you read into my post that Fassbender or any of these other people are my idols… But you’re the one with all the answers, knowledge and ideas to solve the world’s problems. I can search the internet just as fast, and if not faster than you I suspect so good on you for your “research skills”. Anyone with a key board knows how to do a Google search. I’m actually not disagreeing about the questionable ethics that are raised in your posts. But Lena, you do spew venom – you attack people you know nothing about (and not just the celebrities, but also the average people on these boards who dare to disagree with you) – and if someone questions you, you head off on a rant. You are patronising and condescending. Just because you say nice things about some people doesn’t mean you don’t retch up the bile towards others. If you want to discuss what you do for a living, go for it. But – why anyone would believe you I don’t know. I work for a living and read these board and yet I don’t have half the time you do to troll boards (yes, I’ve seen your cr*p on IMDB as well). So get over yourself. Attacking you was I? No, just pointing out that your sh&t is old and boring.

  • Ooops. Lena is vile.

    And PS – before you accuse me of being obsessed with you because I’ve seen your stuff on IMDB. It’s kind of hard to miss. You just have to browse a few boards and your ranting and raving pops up. I shudder to think how many boards you must troll. If your really want to get your message heard, why the h#ll you don’t use methods that will reach people who might be able to aid your causes I don’t know. Oh, and your links to sites etc. you know that the internet is not always reliable don’t you? Over and out. You are boring.

  • Disappointed

    Disappointed that Fassbender didn’t do the ALS challenge. its a great cause. I hope he donated if nothing else :)
    It made me notice he does not (at least publicly) get involved in anything that’s charity based. Is this true?
    I don’t think he would have brought attention to himself in a bad way at all. Seems silly for that Fansite to make excuses, best not to mention anything.
    Look at Benedict Cumberbatch, his was brilliant esp the bit when you almost see him in the shower SWOON.
    I understand increasingly why he is so damn popular as well, he come across as intelligent, diverse and with a great sense of fun too.
    I know many say Fassbender is the best Actor of his generation, but I wonder if its a case of emperors new clothes with him.
    Benedict is better if everyone is honest. He can do Film, Theatre and TV to perfection.
    They are both great Film actors (Fassbender is good and so very good looking too) but Benedict’s ability to do Theatre and TV so well makes him the better thespian.

    I didn’t donate to ALS. In fact, it’s annoying to me when I go to the market and the cashier asks if I want to give money to this charity or that charity. And then when I say “No,” they give this look of, “wow, that was cold….it’s for kids…”. And, then at Petsmart, I’ll buy like $100 of supplies, and they’ll say, “would you like to donate a $1 to Petsmart charities?” And I say “nope…”. Sometimes I say to these folks, “it’s a nice charity but all my free time (literally) and money goes to fostering animals and animal rescue…everything I bought here is going to a petsmart charity, ie, rescue group” And they understand then.
    .
    But, maybe I shouldn’t have to. Usually, if I’m at the grocery store, and buying cat food, it’s for foster kittens (I have 4 right now). And at petsmart, the $100 is already going to fosters who were rescued and will go up for adoption.(animal based charity expenses) So I don’t feel the need to even spend $1 more, guilt tactic or not.
    ..
    And, then there’s the kids who stand outside of markets asking for donations so they can go on sports trips. They stand there with buckets begging passersby for $$$$ while their parents lounge in chairs sipping tea…the kids ask for cash. I say, “are you selling something?”. They say “no.” I say, “is that your parents?”. “Yes.”. So, then I ask the parents why the kids are in sports. The answer “to instill values” or something like that, so then I ask, ” then why are you teaching them to beg?” I would have bought a cupcake at a bake sale, and probably given it to someone. Or, even giving someone a tootsie roll for their donation is something. Girl Scouts sell cookies. But, the trend now is to “guilt” people going in to the market to dish out cash to pay for other people’s kids sports trips. No bake sale. No popcorn tins. Just give me money so I can go on this trip. Parents, you pay for it. Or bake cookies with your kids to sell instead of sitting there like pimps… with your Gucci purses…unbelievable…
    —-
    No thanks. I give my money to causes I WANT TO….causes I believe in…not because people guilt me into it…
    —–
    So, while I WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree with shouting from the mountaintops advertisement for charities and good causes you believe in (because they need volunteers, $$$ and exposure to get funding for change, etc), I also Wholeheartedly agree that just because someone or a bunch of people put pressure on you to do something you shouldn’t be guilted into promoting a charity.

    I liked Pam Anderson’s statement that she wasn’t giving to ALS because they do animal testing. Well, I don’t want to promote animal testing either. Why should she be bullied by her peers into doing that ice bucket thing if it goes against her values? I think PETA is a terrible organization as well, which Anderson promotes. I follow the No Kill Revolution approach to saving shelter animals. But, we are two different people. Both animal lovers. But she has a right to say NO. So does Fassbender. Maybe he’ll cave though…LOL… :). Yes a crowd follower…

    And I don’t recall the quintessential humanitarian fame/who/res “I now pronounce you MrandMrsthePitts” doing this. I believe they feel they are too regal for that. Having set their sights on greater global more PR value filled opportunities to showcase their greatness… LOL :)
    ____
    So, perhaps Fassbender isn’t into ALS as his cause…. Touche…
    ………

    …..
    “It made me notice he does not (at least publicly) get involved in anything that’s charity based. Is this true?”
    ……..
    He was persuaded several years ago to do something for marriage equality wasn’t he? By Charlize Theron. Perhaps that is more his speed… :). LOL
    ……..
    You also said “I don’t think he would have brought attention to himself in a bad way at all. Seems silly for that Fansite to make excuses, best not to mention anything. ”
    …….
    I don’t know what Fan site you’re referring to. They are ALL silly. In my opinion. If it’s the ones who do charity on his behalf, they DO look dumb making excuses for him. Like weak enabling spouses….no backbone. Michael is in the public eye. He should realize that to whom much is given, much will be expected. He has no problem promoting negative things like (prostitution, drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, wrecking sweet shops a/k/a degrading women, and marriage equality, etc)…it just seems he goes very silent and yet loudly absent when he is asked to promote anything related to old fashioned values such as marriage, God, sexual monogamy, abstinence from.drugs and alcohol….just my opinion.

    Thank you @Lena! Proud to see people still realize that God should have a place in society. I wholeheartedly agree with everything you placed in both your “negative” and “postive” groupings.

  • Maybe

    Maybe he just doesn’t feel the need to pontificate about causes? None of yes know what he supports or doesn’t support in his private life.

  • ALS

    @Maybe:
    Well we all know for certain he doesnt support ALS!
    You have to be a bit odd to be ashamed of supporting good causes.
    You should be aware how any fan base that follows you might also be interested and support the charities you support. It makes a huge impact for charities to have celeb support (as seen from ALS)

  • Lena

    @sarah,

    Ooops, I don’t want to mislead here. Yes, I agree that having God in your life is the #1 positive. But when I said marriage equality was a negative, I should probably explain. I don’t oppose or support same sex marriage. I personally think the government should get out of the marriage granting business altogether. If there are children, then I think the state has a right to make sure it doesn’t have to care for them (therefore, regulation to some extent I can see). And the state should protect children.
    .
    But, I don’t see any other reason for government involvement other than collection of licensing fees or divorce filing fees. And discriminating in taxes between married people and single people. Whether that is same sex marriage or heterosexual marriage. I think it would be better off being a private thing actually. I’m still working that out though… Investigating…

    I personally believe in a traditional man/woman family unit and marriage is great for those that can find their mate. But, marriage can also be something that depresses people who consider themselves failures in life if they can’t obtain perfection in that regard. I am definitely not one to take a hard line on that. And, lots of people can’t have children, and have pets instead. I also know folks in same sex coupling relationships who have been together decades who are old fuddy duddy couples who have vowed to pair up for life. Who am I to sit over them and tell them they can’t love each other? Or worse yet, that God doesn’t love them. That would be pretty outrageous of me as a mere mortal woman, I think. Either way, I don’t see why government is involved anyway even in man/woman marriages other than the collection of taxes and fees.

    But, when I say negative, I think that was kind of a knee jerk reaction to the Jolie-Pitt marriage and things like celebrities taking up causes for PR (like Jolie-Pitt) that they could not possibly follow through on. Which just crams the knife in further when they break their promise to groups like the same sex community. Brad Pitt as late as 2011 vowed that he and Jolie would not get married until everyone could. Well, that got people all excited and made people love them (more?) and he just let them down. Why do that? To me, they saw a way to get fans and capitalize off of emotion of people, and hence make $$, and that was a negative to me.

    But, I am also disturbed at this trend which sort of makes it cool to be bi-sexual or gay on the one hand and yet uncool to be heterosexual on the other. The whole Madonna/Britney Spears kiss thing. Are those women truly lesbians looking for same sex life mates and marriage like commitment? Or, are they just wanting to shock, and get off on erotic experimentation and same sex partners to get an erotic thrill? To me, that disrespects folks who genuinely love their same sex mate and want marriage equality. Yet celebrities opportunistically treat those folks like great PR stunts. Not fair.

    And, there seems to be a trend in pop culture (led by Hollywood) that teaches that you are a fuddy duddy (or God forbid, God worshipper) if you don’t want to date your same sex or “experiment” as Hollywood is pushing so it seems.

    But when I said “negative value” I was more talking about the morphed attitude of pushing of gay marriage as the cool new fad “in” thing to do and old fashioned committed “marriage” as “it’s so last century.” And this idea that if you are not into sexual deviance (promiscuity, orgies, 2 on 1′s, sex clubs, polyamorous relationships, friends with benefits, etc) then you are somehow ignorant, uneducated and somehow not “enlightened.”

    That’s what I meant. I’m not condemning people who feel like they were born to love someone of the same sex since birth and want to commit their lives to another human in love (and love God) for the rest of their lives. I personally think a lot of celebrities mock those people by morphing that into the kind of Britney/Madonna thing we saw. And, that drive to push anything but traditional ways of living on to the masses and lure them in to chaos.

    Sorry if i wasn’t clear on that @Sarah. I’m definitely conservative in beliefs, but I think if same sex couples want to promote life commitment and monogamy in love, well, that’s not a negative thing.

  • Lena

    @ALS:

    I guess what I was getting at earlier was, why be so willing to be so vocal about things which will cause strife and rifts, and debate and strife in your “fan base?” And, yet be so rebellious and unwilling to speak up on things which are pretty much across the board considered positives and kind? Even that military thing was only a blind… And if it was real, it was not organized but rather looked like a random thing…a chance opportunity..and a PR person capitalized on it later…

    Is there a desire to constantly irritate here? Is that what it is? Any of you hear me use the term “all eyes on me PR stunt”?

    Does Michael just like to shock and confuse and act sketchy so that people will constantly wonder about him and hence focus on him? Is that what things like this are about? Like I said, I do not think that anyone should have to support a charity that they do not want to support. That’s not what I’m saying. But, he doesn’t seem to want to get on board with any of that stuff. He’s got FF doing that stupid motorcycle charity FOR him. And, that MFO doing those charities FOR him as well.

    But, at some point it’s like, dang… And again… to whom much is given, much is expected. Is it really against his principles to support a cause publicly? Is there nothing he supports charity wise that he’s passionate about? Is this TRULY the thing he would dig his heels in and get rebellious about in life? Something so positive in the world?

    When he is so vocal about things which turn people off, and shock them, such as his comments that all drugs should be legalized and taxed? Or his comments on Colbert that he wanted to get high?

    Oh my..so pathetic.

  • Maybe

    @ALS: I have more respect for the people who quietly go about and support charities without needing to be praised or recognised for this. There are millions of people who help others for the sake of it and not for the glory. Where celebrity can help is by getting the message out there, but there is no need for everyone to make their philanthropy public.

    “…. I have more respect for the people who quietly go about and support charities without needing to be praised or recognised for this…”.
    —-
    I doubt seriously you’d ever be asked to run a non-profit organization. Most charities (unless they are the big ones) run on fumes, hope, and prayer. They rely on donations and volunteer labor. The only way to get that is to shout it from the mountaintops. We wear T-shirts, hats, have magnets on our cars to advertise low cost spay neuter and animal rescue groups. Not for “praise” or “recognition” but to get animals fixed (so they won’t reproduce) and to get animals on to forever homes so we can go rescue more from death row at the shelter. That you find that kind of behavior to be based in a need to be praised or recognized is pretty pathetic and sad.
    ..
    For people who are knee deep in it, it is a calling and passion in life, and when you see animals who only have 1 hour to live, or a starving animal who has been abused, you are not thinking of yourself but the animal. That’s my charity. For people who are passionate about Make a Wish, they live for seeing that smile on the face of the dying kid meeting Mickey Mouse as his last wish. They are NOT thinking, “how does my hair look for the camera?” I don’t know what most celebrities do, but I think there are some who really have life passions, and are not just in it for PR. But, regardless, the benefit is in what they can do for the folks or animals in need . I honestly couldn’t care less about the ego of any entitled overpaid celebrity. Charity is the least they can do. To those who are given much, much is expected….
    —-
    “…. There are millions of people who help others for the sake of it and not for the glory….”
    —-
    Yes, most people are this way, but you seem to suggest that unless you are silent about charity, you are only in it for the glory. Which is naive and dumb. And, just exposes yourself as someone who really doesn’t participate. Because, if you did, and I mean, really volunteer your time as a passion and life effort, not just a show up to this function or the gratuitous 1 time a year celebrity event, you wouldn’t be saying that. Just my opinion. Or perhaps you are talking about the folks who go buy those little $1 balloons at the supermarket check out line and say they “give to charity.” Honestly, big deal—That’s passive giving… Not really giving of yourself to a cause…in my opinion…
    —-
    “…..Where celebrity can help is by getting the message out there, but there is no need for everyone to make their philanthropy public……”
    —-
    Well, of COURSE there is a “need for everyone to make their philanthropy public.” What other beneficial use to society do these sponging off of taxpayer celebrities offer? And, these celebrities have absolutely NO problem making their bisexuality, drug use, gangsta’ mentality, cheating, polyamorous, friends with benefits, philandering/womanizing, slutty ways public in their 1. movies 2. musical lyrics 3. PR stunts 4. when they wear see through outfits to red carpet events 4. when they are shouting their mouths off on the red carpet and “all eyes on me” PR marketing efforts every day do they?

    What is soooooooooooooooooooooooo taboo about shouting from the mountaintops that you are a giving and caring person who wants to do good in the world? Especially when they are sooooooooooo willing to display deviant behavior for attention. Why is positive living something to be hidden and ashamed of and negative deviant behavior something to wear on your sleeve like a badge of honor? It’s nonsensical to me.

  • Lena

    @Maybe

    You also seem so resolved to the negative deviant pop culture we have going on now. The ra/pe culture.. The “I’ll take what I can from you however I can” philosophy of life. Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to live in a world where everyone was giving all the time to everyone? Where the norm was a culture of sharing and giving rather than a culture of taking and seizing?

    Your endorsement of hush hush and being silent on charity just perpetuates the idea that giving and sharing is not the norm in society. In my opinion.

  • Maybe

    @Lena: As you know nothing about me, the charities I support or anything else I find your pontificating both irritating and irrelevant. You choose to take what you want out of what I said regardless of the intention. You are so full of your own importance that it actually takes away from any points you might actually have a balanced opinion of. And, for the record there is a difference between someone who supports and charity quietly while advocating, advertising and supporting it, and the other people (like you) who tell everyone how good THEY ARE for supporting the said charity. A big difference.

  • Lena

    @Maybe:

    In my opinion, that’s so untrue what you say. All my best girlfriends live for animal rescue. They are tired. Their work is never done. Their Facebook’s are filled with information on how to get involved. Pictures of fosters they have, fosters I have, fosters someone else has, this charity event, that save the bear from being abused petition, this petition to stop animal testing or skinning alive, quotes about the life of an animal rescuer, specific Facebook pages dedicated to one of their disabled animals with 5000+ Facebook friends from all over the world, all day long postings going back and forth in a network of volunteers all over the state, country and world on TNR.
    .
    And when that’s not going on, my circle has email chains hopping all day long where we are pooling money together to buy flea meds, or feeding syringes for newborns, and arrange transport for a trapping lead someone got where a trailer park has 25 unfixed cats in the grant zip code so we have to arrange for traps to be delivered, and transport, and recovery after spay/neuter surgery.

    Oh, so you think we do that for praise and glory? You think at that level of time occupation where it becomes a lifestyle or dedicated calling, it’s all about getting praise? Pahleese….it’s fun, it’s exhausting, it’s exhilarating, it’s a sense of accomplishment, it makes you feel great to help those in need, and to do something good. But, no one can sustain that level of giving sweet pea just for attention and glory….LOL…:)
    ..
    Yeah, if you think any of what I just mentioned, especially the part about coordinating the trapping of 25 cats and probably the adopting out of probably 10 kittens from a feline reproductive feeding and breeding mess like that can be accomplished by everyone being silent about their efforts, then, YES, absolutely, I do not need to know anything about you to know you have little to no experience with organized charity efforts.
    .
    It simply doesn’t get done with people being too ashamed or shy to speak up and advertise what’s going on…

    I bet dollars to donuts you’re one of those Fassbender fans that works overtime telling everyone how perfect and without fault he is. How great of an actor he is. How hot and sexy and charming he is. How he’s the prototype male unmatched by other mere mortals.

    But how dare anyone else be proud of their lives eh? Unless they are rich and famous….. Because rich and famous people are special right? LOL… :)

    An elite worshipper and fame idolizer… you seem like a low self esteem person who is ticked off when someone, who you don’t consider to be one of the elites, has the AUDACITY to be proud of who they are, what they do in life, and how much positive charity and help they spread in the world.
    .
    Just because you are stuck in a self loathing hell of only thinking narcissistic movie stars, and the rich and the famous are allowed to be proud of themselves in life, doesn’t mean I have to adhere to your nonsensical and insane caste system.
