Michael Fassbender for Interview Magazine

Posted on January 17, 2012

Well, now that his penis is trending on the twitter (thanks to George Clooney), why not check in on T Lo’s favorite underwear-eschewer in a smoldering Interview editorial?


Michael Fassbender featured in the February 2012 issue of Interview magazine photographed by Sebastian Kim and styled by Elin Svahn.

 

Literally smoldering.

The pictures (and certainly the styling) aren’t all that revolutionary or eye-catching, but the man surely does give some primo face.

 

Sweater: Emporio Armani.

 

T-Shirt: Simon Spurr. Pants: Dior Homme. Shoes: Comme des Garçons.

 

Jacket: Bottega Veneta.

 

Jacket: Bottega Veneta. T-Shirt: Gap.

      I want to like him, but every time I see him in a movie I’m bothered by how much he looks like the love child of Jason Isaacs and Ewan McGregor.

        Bothered…I certainly am bothered. Hot and tingly too

        • Calliandra L.

          See, I always see him as the love child of like… Jon Hamm and Daniel Craig.

      As hot as he is, I’m turned off by the cigarette.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WXFJ3ZBAAY4LZFM4XESWSKEH2Y ubetcha

        My first thought – cigarette: instant turn-off.

        Of course, I’m in the “I don’t get it” camp when it comes to him in the first place.

        • Anonymous

          I get it. I just don’t want it. I mean, I’m all for everyone having eye candy but yet another rakish white male? Sigh. Our culture’s standards of beauty are so narrow that it annoys me.

          Also smoking is plain pathetic. Let’s make him look edgy by smoking! Truly uncreative.

          • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

            It helps that he’s genuinely talented. If he weren’t, I’d be similarly bored (well, no, because “rakish white male” with dark hair and blue eyes is SO my type, but I would still get the boredom), but he’s also an incredibly powerful and subtle actor who is frequently the best part of the movies he’s in (and he doesn’t often choose easy movies). He absolutely deserves the acclaim he’s been getting this year.

            But I’m with you on the smoking. It’s no coincidence that my favorite two shots here are the ones without cigarettes.

      He is Hot.  Loved his handsome intensity in “X-Men. 
      He was so sexy & cute when George Clooney was discussing his club.
      After that I have an unsavory NEED to see him naked.
      Please?

        Pay $10 and watch “Shame.” His penis and his performance are worth it.

        George’s remarks were juvenile and inappropriate, but they sure make me curious.

      God was feeling mighty generous with this one. Bravo!

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      I just – why is it on fire? It’s a dumb gimmick and it obscures his face. And isn’t his face why we’re all here?

      But his face looks GOOD.

      So much eye candy today! thank you TLo!
      Love him with the scruffy chin. :)

      If you are a Fassbender fan (fanbender?) as I am, you should definitely watch Fish Tank, an indie from 2009.  It’s available on Netflix Instant.   He burns up the screen.   As in spontaneous combustion.  

      • http://twitter.com/hangingfire Karin

        If you have UK resources, it’s also worth tracking down the miniseries “The Devil’s Whore” for lots of Fassbender in 17th c. period costumes.

          Thanks for the suggestion! I just ordered it on Amazon.

          even better is the terrible, but fassy-heavy HEX. he does so much with middling material, it’s mind-boggling, but who really needs their brain when you’ve got your eyes and ovaries.

          • Anonymous

            Oooooh, I’ve heard about the terribleness that is Hex.  I saw a clip somewhere and he’s rocking the guyliner.  Hot!  Now I have to go on Fassbender bender.

      Smoking, it’s really not that cool anymore…

    • http://twitter.com/jennawaterford Jennifer Ford

      I was watching a Poirot episode today, and there he was: unexpected Michael Fassbender in period costume. There was even a fairly smokin’ sex scene with incredibly hot, sort-of-naked Michael Fassbender. I suspect the director added that to take advantage of the gorgeousness.

      • Anonymous

        As in Agatha Christie’s Poirot? If so, then yeah, I suspect that was directorial license. I don’t remember any torrid sex scenes in St. Mary Mead, and perhaps more to the point, Agatha Christie and the concept of sex just don’t mix.

        (Yes, I know. St. Mary Mead is Miss Marple’s hometown, not Poirot’s.)

        (Dear God, I’m so gay…)

        • http://twitter.com/jennawaterford Jennifer Ford

          Yep! It was brief and flashbacky but intense. Ms. Christie referred to infidelity (or in this case scandalous and inappropriate hooking-up), but she didn’t tend to write in the flashback scenes. 

          So, thank you, Mr. Director!

          • Anonymous

            This reminds me of the swimming scene so thoughtfully added to the Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice-no, it ain’t in the book, but am I glad that they added it! Mr.Darcy running with his shirt plastered to his torso? Now, that was TV worth watching!

        Can you recall which specific episode? Just for research purposes, of course. If not, I can troll IMDB. :-)

        • http://twitter.com/jennawaterford Jennifer Ford

          It was “After the Funeral.”

      I saw Shame yesterday. He and his penis are magnificent. But the movie was kinda creepy!

        Shut up! I just recommended to someone above to see the movie (to see him naked). Well done. Give the movie some time (I saw it a month ago). It definitely stays with you.

      I like these pictures, but he looks like he needs a shower.  Actually, after viewing them, so do I.

        i think he’s one of those guys who looks better dirty.  like viggo mortensen (i’m sure that’s horribly misspelled, but it’s late and i’m lazy…).

      I like some of these, but his facial hair is at a weird place in between stubble and actual beard.  Use your trimmer, Michael.  Take your mouse away from the “Brightness/Contrast” tool, photo editors.

      You mean, he gives some primo DERP face. At least in the cover shot.

      I am completely fine with the cigarette. Being someone who grew up with teachers and parents deploring the glamourizing of smoking, I now know that “cigarettes are cool” only appears in period tv and films (aka mad men and good night and good luck in which it really does look cool) and then print ads like this which sort of have an ambiguous nostalgia. We are educated viewers, we know this is a constructed situation and we are smarter than to think that some hot dude smoking makes smoking something that we should want to do.

      He’s still a little on the skinny side for me, and the smoking is my biggest turnoff (in anyone), but still I can’t deny that he’s hot.

      Ick.  That is in no way attractive.  I guess he spent his razor money on cigs.

      Sorry, but he looks like Jeff Conaway in these pictures.

      I just don’t like him.  But I can’t explain why.  Maybe it’s because I find him very ACTORY.  And that irritates me.

        Very “serious” actory.

        What do you mean?  The special effects?  They haven’t really done a number on him.  His wrinkles and pores are on full display.

        • MilaXX

          except for the special effects there’s nothing really outstanding about the the spread. The photoshopping is more eye catching than the man or the clothes.

        You must be blissfully free of any duty to see comic book related movies with pre-teen sons. Although, Fassbinder is gorgeous to look at in the X-Men movie. Don’t ask which one – they blur together – but, in it he is tortured by a Nazi Fiend (played by, of all people, Kevin Bacon) and finally gets his revenge on same. There – no need for you to see it now. Your welcome. :)

          Thanks. (And Kevin Bacon as Nazi fiend does sound pretty bizarre!)

       I’m a little afraid to watch Shame.  Mostly because I’m pretty sure it will render my birth control pills completely useless for the next year or so.  My ovaries will explode.

      Why did they have to set him on fire? It seems such a waste.

      He’s not just dreamy, but also talented.  Sigh, still waiting for my city to get Shame or A Dangerous Method.

      I love that he’s kinda grizzled and not a pretty boy.  Hubba hubba.
