Michael Fassbender is a Star Wars geek, still has his Ewok village & Millennium Falcon

Here are some newish photos of Michael Fassbender over the weekend at the Monaco Grand Prix, looking very much like a kid in a candy store. Fassy’s level of excitement for all things car and car-adjacent is a little bit… I don’t know, off-putting for me. I’m not a car person, obviously, and when Michael and I get together, this will have to be something we work on. Like, will he expect me to support and be an equal participant in his car and racing enthusiasm? Or can I simply say, “It’s your thing, sweetheart. I’m fine with this book. You go play with your toys”? What turns Fassy on more: a lady’s sweetshop or a really beautiful car?

Fassy talked to a reporter at the Grand Prix too:

In other Fassy news, there are several new interviews out now for Fassy’s promotion of Prometheus. GQ UK has a new video interview with him here, and I saw this quote that I loved – Fassy on whether he was ever a “sci-fi geek”: “No. Not really. I liked Star Wars I suppose, which is pretty sci-fi. But I’ve never been someone who collected comic books or any of that sort of thing. Other than Star Wars, which I did collect lots of things. [Like the] Ewok village that I still have… and the Millennium Falcon.” Yeah. Not a sci-fi geek but he still has the Millennium Falcon. GEEK!

Here’s a video interview with Fassy from Digital Spy (GAH HIS VOICE!!!!!):

Do you want more of that GQ p0rn? Of course you do.

    He still has a Millenium Falcon?! That’s adorable! Marry me Fassy!

    I LOVE his ginger beard. I wanna lose my face in it. and he’s a closet nerd? Love.

    And yea, the car thing would definitely be one of those,’Good for you, honey’ and back to my book type things.

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Best voice ever. The car thing is…ehhhh..I mean, there are worse things he could be into. Plus, I give him a pass because he doesn’t sound like a dumb meathead who’s just into *fast, hot, cars*. He seems like a pretty thoughtful guy who happens to appreciate beautiful things (like fancy cars).

  4. Dangerfox says:

    Is that Davos Seaworth from Game of Thrones next to him?

  5. Alexis says:

    I never really noticed that he was a Ginger!

  6. Kristen says:

    I just watched that you video that you embedded and melted.

    I don’t understand this “his car thing is off-putting…” deal either. Did you not watch the video? He could say, “I’m really into origami” and it would be HOT.

  7. Naomi says:

    I don’t know who that girl is walking beside him in that last picture but I want her legs please

  8. Meecey says:

    Oh fassy. Ur a nerd! You know he gets out that falcon and ewok and plays with them! (picturing it!)

  9. Ginger says:

    Kaiser you would get used to the gear head/speed junkie thing for you man. I learned all about sport bikes and freaking NASCAR for my guy. Believe it or not its exciting and kind of sexy.

  10. Ellie says:

    How nerdy does it make me that this is the hottest thing I’ve ever read about him? Love me a Star Wars nerd. Yum!

  11. gloaming says:

    Here’s the BBC interview I was looking for yesterday.

    Starts at 0.26 for Fassy and Liam Cunningham with some bonus Mark Webber (yum) thrown in for good measure.

    @Kaiser: for the record, I am a woman and I think formula one is one of the best sports ever! but it’s just my humble opinion… Well, you don’t need to follow formula, but it’s fun!

    Now to Fassbender…I was always called geek for being a science major. But I never liked star wars and all my geeky friends like it. Fassy, you are a geek! I am not, :)

    Fassy and I are soul-mates and perfect for each other. I’ve been a Formula One fan since 1999 and the interest has gotten me a lot of love from hot European guys when I travel. All I have to say is “Schumi”, short for Michael Schumacher, a 7 time F1 champion and they get hard-ons.

    • LucyOriginal says:

      If this is the case, I am his first soulmate because I followed formula one since the best era of formula one (mid to late 80s). After Ayrton Senna past away and “Schumi” became a hot thing, Formula one became ridiculously boring. But I will stop here because there is no need to argue formula one on celebitchy, :) . + I know Fassy is a “schumi” fan, argh…Nobody is perfect, LucyO, nobody… *takes deep breath and smiles*

    The car thing is fine. why not? I think it is endearing to see “famous” people be real. He is as “geeked out” about the F1 as we would all be in the presence of him, right? Makes him more human.
    Speaking of human (actually as a non human) his interview about Prometheus is very good as well. He is so open about his “process”. It is very evident he puts a lot of thought and time into his characters. I also LOVE how he was very gracious to be a part of the Prometheus team and does not take sole credit for anything (even referencing the make up artist) when talking about his character “David”‘s look.
    I am a fan. FYI he is so much more delicious in film than in print. His voice and his facial expressions. :sigh:

    Thanks for posting . I would Geek out for him anytime . When I think of Fassy , I totally have a Spazzy Geekgasm. Love him :)

  16. Carolyn says:

    Kaiser if you’re tiring of Fassy I’ll take your place (just kidding). I still have my ewok village too. Fassy’s my new official man crush. Am hyperventilating to see Prometheus. I have a soft spot for gingers – my first boyfriend was one :)

  17. NYCGAL says:

    I guess I am in love with him if just looking at him eating his breakfast and holding a coffee mug is adorable to me. Okay, Fassie- you got me! Now stop being so freaking cute!!!!!!

  18. SCREEEE says:

    WHY no mention (or googling) of the man in these photos? DAVOS out of Game of Thrones!! I LOVE IT. My obsessions intersect. <3

  19. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I love his level of excitment. It’s kind of sweet. He looks young at heart, nothing wrong with that.
