Michael Fassbender Is Too Busy Manfully Straddling Cars To Worry About Campaigning For The Oscars

The dusty, manful straddles come courtesy of a fantastic cover story Michael Fassbender did for GQ. You can read the whole thing here and go ahead and drink in the photos. No, no. Take your time. I’ll wait.








In the article, Fassbender says he won’t be campaigning for an Oscar this year for his devilish work in 12 Years A Slave. He doesn’t say it in a nasty, petulant way. Though you can’t blame him for being put out after campaigning so hard for Shame and being passed over. He tells GQ:

You know, I get it. Everybody’s got to do their job. So you try and help and facilitate as best you can. But I won’t put myself through that kind of situation again. It’s just a grind. And I’m not a politician. I’m an actor.

The bottom line, though, is that Fassbender will be busy working during campaign season. Doing what you ask? Oh just filming Macbeth with Marion Cotillard. So, sorry Oscar campaign, Herr Fassbender will be otherwise occupied. Can you blame him?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Goddamn my stupid-ass job...it made me miss this post!! Bless you, Joanna. Bless you. It's God's work you're doing.

  • Sue Lockhart

    Thank you Joanna! I took my time as instructed.

  • Conor

    Excuse me, Joanna, but it's "An tUasal Fassbender", not "Herr".

    Back off, Germany, he's ours!

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Michael Fassbender to Oscar campaigning is like Chris Hemsworth to Thor: The Dark World promotion. In the meantime, we have Cumber batching everywhere like mushrooms after a cat-alien rain, and what the internet has taken to calling Hiddlemass.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I've been struck by the Hiddlemass, and assimilated. Resistance is futile.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    I'm pretty sure the only reason I haven't assimilated yet is because I am not physically attracted to him. In all other aspects, I find him delightful.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I wasn't attracted to him as Loki, the a friend showed me a picture of a hot Ginger and told me that was Loki...and then I became hooked.
    His dorky ways are just icing on the cake.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Sadly not attracted to him in either look. Maybe I just haven't fallen on the right Hiddleston fetish yet, he should be my cup of Dorky British Cheekbones.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I feel that way about Benedict Cumberbatch. Although not being attracted to Cumberbatch is apparently classified as a hate crime around the internet.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    JFC don't get me started on him. Whatever slight attraction I had for him as Sherlock entirely disappeared once I went online. His fans are beyond horrible.
