Michael Fassbender and Javier Bardem at The Counselor Screening

Posted on October 04, 2013

We’re not even going to pretend there’s a fashion component to this post. One’s a slob and the other’s dressed like a banker.


Michael Fassbender and Javier Bardem attends “The Counselor” special screening at Odeon West End in London.

If we focused on the fashion, we’d get very sad and possibly a little frustrated. So let’s not. Just this once.

Jesus take the wheel, those pants.

Sorry. We’ll shut up. You may continue gazing.

    Quick, where’s the gif of the ovaries exploding?

    • Lucía Gavello

      I need way dirtier gifs to express all the FEELINGS.

  • Aidan B

    Remove the suits. Problem solved!

    • Emily Dagger

      You, madam, speak with the voice of genius.

      • Aidan B

        Thank you! I accept accolades in the form of fresh flowers and gin. Or, you know, a naked Fassbender at my door.

  • PlethoraofBooks

    Maybe if I only look at the close up of Fassbender’s face… nope… I can see things that bug me – like his bland choice of shirt and suit coat that make my eyes twitch. Pretty faces can’t get you everywhere boys… Where is Bruce Willis when you need him?

    • Beth513

      Indeed these boys need to willis it the fuck up!

      • Heather

        I’m not sure I could handle that. It would be like that episode of Mad Men (“The Christmas Waltz”) where Joan and Don were flirting and we all wondered if they’d hook up. It would just be … too much. The universe would implode on itself.

  • GillianHolroyd

    Honestly, I didn’t even notice the clothes.

  • mjude

    Javier looks like he smells good.

    • formerlyAnon

      Javier looks like . . . a lot of things I am too repressed to type.

  • HobbitGirl

    Don’t even care about the fashion sadness, I will take either of those anytime.

    • Jackie4g

      That’s what I know.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Pants, they don’t need no stinkin’ pants.

  • Griffinqueen

    My God, but Fassbender is beautiful. As for the clothes, at least his collar is starched and standing up.

    • Billie_Dawn

      I actually think this is on the positive end of the Fassbender continuum. Starched collar, somewhat well groomed head, for once doesn’t look like he slept in his clothes, etc.

      The man is obviously hopeless (in a fashion sense, heh), and I know it’s not exactly praiseworthy to say that this is far from his worst, but…well, that’s what it is.

  • jonnyf8

    I’d rather see these two in that Man from Uncle remake than Hammar and Cavill who have already ruined more their than share of classic characters this yera.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Now that would a remake for the adult female population! Where do we start the online petition?????

    • formerlyAnon

      Yes. Line for swooning forms to the right.

  • Jackie4g

    Call me naive, they both look pretty damn dishy.

  • MilaXX

    Just look at them from the waist up and all is well in the world.

    • Florence Whytingale

      Ahem. It’s criminal to NOT take in Fassbender below the waist.

      • formerlyAnon

        But not necessarily clothed.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Javier Bardem and Jeffrey Dean Morgan gay incest porn. That is all.

    • Donna Tabor

      There you go, ruining it for us girly girls.

      • formerlyAnon

        Acting, honey. Just call it acting.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    Fassbender…..my eyes start swirling around….

  • ryenerman

    I would go to that bank All. The. Time.

    • HM3

      This comment FTW!

  • Coolekat

    Jesus take the wheel. Love it.

  • PastryGoddess

    I’m much more interested in what’s in the pants.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Why hello, Magneto. It’s been a while, I missed your devilish smile.

  • Denise Alden

    Gazing and sighing, “jeezus . . . ” with the goofiest smile ever on my face. Ah, Javier. Hay nadie pero tu, mi amor.

  • krelnick

    Fassbender looks like the skeevy abuser that he is but Bardem is a large, lovely pudding.

    • Heather

      Wow – true re Fassbender?

      • Rabblerouser

        No, don’t worry. Not true. It’s easy to spread slander.

  • demidaemon

    I’ll take the slob. Easier to disrobe and more my type. Also, strangely working that slob look. It must be the face again.

    • formerlyAnon

      It’s also the impression that the slob is far more into feeling good than looking good. Extrapolate as you will.

  • e jerry powell


    I’m going to swoon.

  • Agent Sculder

    God, Fassbender’s blue eyes are so gorgeous I barely even noticed what he was wearing. It’s not fair that someone as looking as he is, is also super talented, and well you know (which if you saw Shame you know exactly what I mean). What genetic lottery did he hit?

    • quiltrx

      ALL of them, apparently!

  • Rabblerouser

    Love Fassbender, love his acting, love his kindness to fans.

  • webslice33

    but the slob has a big……………… hihi 🙂

  • kimmeister

    Is Fassy a smoker?

    • Florence Whytingale

      Yup. Big time.

      • kimmeister

        It shows. Too bad.

        • AnguaVonUberwald

          Yeah, I noticed that too.

    • dancho

      Must be. Needs some professional teeth whitening.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    I’ll just consider this another installment of Sausage Friday, starring a wurst with an Irish twist, and a hot Chorizo. Thanks, TLo!

  • Heather

    Just… Oh. I love me some Real Men.

  • Heather

    I love an olive man with a bit of grey.

  • marlie

    I’ll take the banker over the slob.

  • Kate4queen

    I just love them both. Thank you. 🙂

  • “Jesus take the wheel”…….my new favorite exclamation.

  • quiltrx

    If I scroll just right on the close-ups, I can’t see the fashion problems. AND I can pretend each is nude. All problems solved.

  • Contralto

    Oh, Javier, how you need me.


  • Cecilia Lin

    those pants hems are longer than the river of tears I cry over their hotness.

  • formerlyAnon

    Give me the slob. He . . . gives the impression that looking good would take second place to having a damn good time. And that he has a Very Good and Extremely Accurate idea of how to have a damn good time. They’re rare, those ones, and need to be cherished.

  • If TLO says “continue gazing”, who am I to argue. *continues gazing*

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    So pretty…………

  • psychoblonde

    Thank you for bringing Fassy back, TLo!!

  • Diego!

    Michael Fassbender is gorgeous, but Javier Bardem has more sex appeal and clearly is the winner here. Congrats Penelope!

  • Samantha Klein

    I think they might need to just continue promoting this movie FOREVER. And I’m taking both of them. You wanna fight? Bring it.

  • veriance

    anyone else suddenly craving a sandwich?

  • MzzPants

    The title of this post was enough.
