Pairs Division: Wasikowska and Fassbender

Posted on November 10, 2011

It’s really cute to see two co-stars who genuinely seem to like each other and that doesn’t seem to include inappropriate touching in front of cameras. Too often the “I JUST LOVE MY CO-STAR” posing gets a little grabby, but these two just look like good friends who are happy to see each other.

It’s probably all an act for the cameras, we know. Or maybe they’re secretly thrilled that the other one looks worse than they do.


Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender attend the premiere and after-party for “Shame” in Los Angeles. Mia Wasikowska is wearing a Miu Miu dress.

Celebrities, what the fuck. Is there some steamer crisis happening in L.A. right now, forcing you all to go out looking like wrinkled messes? We don’t even know if it’s worth making the attempt to break down the scores, but you know us, we never miss a chance to be bitches.

HE: Wore underwear this time, which makes us simultaneously grateful and disappointed. It looks like a decent enough suit, but it also looks like he fished it out from under his bed. And we’re thisclose to declaring the tieless trend on the RC officially over. George Clooney can get away with this, but lesser men cannot. Besides, the grey suit and pale blue shirt reads corporate to us, which means the wrinkles and the lack of a tie read “Happy Hour.” Score: 4/10. Effort, please.

SHE: Didn’t fish that thing out from under her bed. She fished it out of a $1.99 bin marked “BRIDAL” at Goodwill. This is a dress that Molly Ringwald would have rejected at the end of Pretty in Pink. Hair and makeup look pretty, but we can’t with that horrible dress. Score: 5/10. She gets another point for at least making the effort.

Combined Score: 4.5/10. Unacceptable. You are both insanely good-looking, at a career high, and have access to any clothes you want. You should both hang your heads in shame.

  • My first thought seeing this was “Is he or isn’t he this time?

    • ana

      that makes us two :p

      • Vaniljekjeks

        Yeah… we’re all perverts.

  • No, sorry, Mia’s hair looks anything but good. I can’t see it from the back but permed bangs hanging sadly to the side is not “good”.

  • I’d like to give her the benefit of the doubt and say maybe the picture was taken after the bear hug, but Geez Louise, look at that fit at the bust!  I’m pretty sure a hug from Michael Fassbender could be transformative, but not in that way.  It looks a bit too much like a PRS9 outfit Kimberly made on a bad day.  But her hair & make-up are awesome.  As for Fassbender himself…well yeah, I just see pictures of him and I’m only vaguely cognizant of words.  Sloppy, but still smoking hot.

  • Yes. However, they are freaking ADORABLE: a grin like that gives you so many Awesome Points. Michael Fassbender seems to get along superbly with his castmates – check out video interviews of him & James McAvoy. ADORABLE. So, no to the clothes, but yes to them.

      I agree. I doubt that the affection here is manufactured.

      • The wrinkled nose on the hug confirms true affection — he’s mid laugh and hugging her at the same time.

          *sigh* The unpretentiousness makes him even more smoking hot in my book. There are little Sally Brown-style hearts swirling around my head right now.

  • You two care far to much about the collar things. He at least looks respectable and from this decade. She literally looks like an extra from any 80’s prom movie. And her hair is disasterous. And her shoes. And the dress. And the fit on the dress. And her makeup. No, no, no. She should be run out by villagers with pitch forks. He, well, I can give him a spanking.

    I’m gonna focus on Jane and Mr. Rochester…. just love the hug photo… made my day!!

    Agree with the scores. It is a shame, with a little tweaking (steaming, ironing, tie), they would both look so great.

    About costars and press junkets, I think they do get close and probably a little punchy. I saw Michael Gambon on a Top Gear rerun. He said during the Sleepy Hollow junket, Depp challenged his costars to get the phrase “Miranda Richardson’s knickers” into as many answers as possible. I have no idea why I find that so funny, but I do.

  • Aww.  I agree with you on the scoring, but seeing an actual up-to-the-eyes smile on the red carpet makes me love them anyway. 

  • Joyce VG

    It doesn’t matter! They are adorable.

  • MilaXX

    They both look like wrinkled messes. I also disagree on her makeup looking fine. She is somehow looking both washed out and greasy.

  • Anonymous

    He needs to take a little time to select a tie, and perhaps iron is shirt. I also think he could use a size larger in the jacket. 
    I think she is as cute as a button. The flash isn’t doing her dress favors , but is a regular low light situation shiny can be very pretty. I think the dress combined with the hair and make up could have a very elegant retro vibe, if only it were a few inches longer. The first together picture of them is so adorable that all is forgiven.

  • Overall it doesn’t look so bad since they’re both so good looking and happy, but both outfits are a mess.

  • Anonymous

    How can you take photo ops with Hooters in the background seriously?
    I like the color on her and he makes me…. very happy.

  • Sara__B

    Your scores are too generous. Her makeup doesn’t suit her at all, hair and dress are a mess, shoes are beyond boring, and she couldn’t be bothered with accessories. He looks like he’s ‘way past happy hour and on to slept on the subway. This is NOT how celebrities should dress for public appearances. If you don’t give a shit, stay home!

    Where do the photographers stand for these red carpet events?  Their victims often look like they have giant heads and tiny bodies. The picture of her alone, below the shot of the reunion of long lost lovers and her giant wrinkly butt, demonstrates what I mean.

  • You lost all credibility when you called Fassbender lesser man than Clooney. In what? For sure not in talent department. It’s totally the other way around.

    Besides Wasikowska and Fassbender are not at their career high, their stars just started rising. What, you think they will never achieve anything more? Which makes me think about your next comment, that they can afford any clothes they want. I’m afraid they can’t. They are not rich like Clooney or Pitt, and I doubt that all fashion designers throw their clothes at them for free. Not yet. But it will happen soon.

    But I agree, they could at least iron their clothes 🙂 Although it still wouldn’t make them any sort of fashion icons 😛

  • Mia’s dress looks like it came out of the “Green textile” challenge in PR S5. But in a better color.

  • I like the silhouette on Mia, but not in that shittastic shiny red.

  • They are both sloppy, but I don’t care. I think they’re both gorgeous and I just can’t stop looking at Mr. Fassbender. He’s dreamy.

  • If that dress were a) not shiny satin, b) didn’t have the arm flapdoodles, and c) were a slightly less pink red it would great.  That’s a lot of ifs, I realize…

    With my crazy neighbor coming home at 3AM, talking loudly and then arguing with my husband because we don’t have earplugs, I really wanted a nice, bitchy post this morning. Boy you guys did not disappoint. THANK YOU! Now I can smile! I’m waiting for your WOA post though so I can LOL.

  • Rebecca Johnson

    A pretty poor effort by both of them. Would it have killed her to put on a single piece of jewelry?
    That said, I will now spend the rest of the day fantasizing about being hugged like that by Michael Fassbender. Please excuse me while I go take a cold shower.

      “I will now spend the rest of the day fantasizing about being hugged like that by Michael Fassbender.”
      Amen to that.

  • ana

    Guys, you can be as bitchy and picky as you want and I normally agree with you but this is Michael Fassbender! I don’t care if he’s in a crisp suit, or in a wrinkled one, he could be naked for all that I care, he (and his delicious accent) still blows me away :))))))

    All I can think is: “He should have worn a turtleneck.” Thanks TLo, for making me permanently associate turtlenecks with Mr. Fassbender.

    Awwwww. They are so cute! And her dress is SO AWFUL!

    Ah, but Molly would have repurposed this Valentines-Day-Dance nightmare into something killa!

    Fassbender looks SO YOUNG in those last 2 shots. wow
    “Celebrities, what the fuck.” made me LMAO. Also the $1.99 bin marked “BRIDAL” at Goodwill. You boys are genius.

    • Alyson Lamble

      I’m mostly pleased that Fassbender seems to be at least dressing his age, or something close to it.  To me, he often wears clothes that make him look like he’s in his early-to-mid-40s.

    I’d love to have a happy hour with him. 🙂

  • I thought they both looked cute.  That dress is a nice color for her.  Call me crazy.

  • Anonymous

    Unfortunately shiny satin, especially in dee[ saturated colors, screams BRIDESMAID. Maybe Mia really believed it when the bridal shop manager told her, “You know, you can wear it again!” But surely she didn’t mean ON THE RC. Anyway, agree that they look as if they  were hugging for real.

    I’m feeling generous today (see my post under WOA), so I give these two a higher score. The first two photos are so charming, that they get extra points for the happiness quotient.

    6.5 for her; 6 for him; total 6.25/10

  • Anonymous

    Oh, TLo, this posting, these photos, they are so sad.  I have to go look at something prettier because I just lost my appetite for lunch.

  • How about another point off for posing in front of a Hooter’s sign instead of the backdrop at the Mann Chinese Theater?

    Finally figured it out. Not so much in this pic, but he looks like the love child of Viggo Mortenson and Ralph Fiennes. And that is no way a bad thing. 🙂

    Really, you like her hair here? I think it’s terrible, but maybe that’s because it resembles what precisely two locks of my bangs do if left unchecked, which makes me look like I have crazy antennae. I’m biased, is what I’m saying.

    She is such a wonderful new actress in the land of no-talent kardashian-like celebs that I don’t care what she wears!

    oh, it’s an itsy bitsy bit slightly better than molly ringwald’s prom dress. but not the sleeves. & not from the back.

    Awww. That hug is so cute. They look like real people! 

    Unfortunately, that dress is doing terrible things to her rear.

    You were too nice.  I’d grade her no higher than a 2.

    Their clothes look very, very cheap. What a hot mess.

  • Anonymous

    While I didn’t think that their chemistry was particularly hot in “Jane Eyre”, I like them both as actors….and whatever Michael Fassbender’s wearing, he’s hot…sigh….

  • amanda crow

    George Clooney can get away with this, but lesser men cannot

    Fassbender is a “lesser man” than NO ONE!

  • What the hell is going on with pic #3? It looks like her giant head is going to pop off her tiny body! Her neck has sort of a Stretch Armstrong quality to it!

  • I keep trying to look at what he’s wearing, but I can’t focus.

  • Am I the only one who cannot get over how he buttoned his jacket?

    I have to disagree on her hair–it looks ridiculous.

    he looks unclean as well.

    You gave her a 5???? WTF? Cleaning lady hair, the ugliest, cheapest-looking, poorly fitted, unsteamed dress you’ve posted in a long time, blah shoes, and no accessories.
    I’ll be generous and give her a 1, just for showing up.

    They looked nice together though…

    That dress is just sad. And now I will never be able to look at an open collar without thinking “needs starch” and it’s all your fault. But they’re awfully cute together.

  • Can you believe that’s a Mui Mui dress? Shame on the designer, too.

  • Anonymous

    You were kind to give her a point for effort.

    I like that about you two.

    Otherwise, spot on.

  • How adorable are they? They really do look like they enjoy each other’s company.
    I am not enjoying their clothes, however.

    Good for you, Uncles T and Lo! If ever there was a moment for finger-wagging disapproval this was it. Her dress is inexplicable. They both look like rumpled crap. And her hair…!!!! Words fail me. And his grooming! *sputter sputter, goes to get another espresso*

  • Totally off topic but…. I LOVE the new formatting of the blog! It’s been looking messy and overcrowded and has had overlapping text as I viewed it in Google Chrome — and today it finally looks as classy as you guys deserve. Well done!
