Fassbender, Cumberbatch & Brad Pitt at TIFF ’12 Years’: who would you rather?

Well, you ladies asked for it. Here’s a special Saturday post for last night’s TIFF screening/premiere of 12 Years a Slave. Director Steve McQueen was there, of course, as was executive producer Brad Pitt. Brad was without his lady Angelina Jolie (she’s in Sydney, Australia with their children), but Brad did have his producing partner Dede Gardner on his arm. And of course, Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor were all in attendance.

Since this is such a photo-heavy post, I’m just going to keep the descriptions and sighing and squealing to a minimum on my part. I will say that this is Benedict’s best look so far at TIFF – the suit was impeccable, stylish and beautifully cut. His hair looked less stiff too. Fassbender is my Forever Dong, so of course I think he looks hot, albeit a bit tired (all of the Canadian journalists keep saying he’s been out partying every night). Fassy’s suit looked good too. There weren’t many pics of Chewy (and yes, I’m going to refer to him as “Chewy” because that’s the nickname he goes by and many of his friends and colleagues call him that), but I like his nerd-glasses. I actually think my favorite look was Brad – he just looks so cleaned-up. Yay.

The TIFF screening went over really well, by the way. Like, The Fifth Estate got decent-ish reviews (much of the praise was simply directed at Cumberbatch, not really at the film as a whole), but people are really going crazy over 12 Years. Every critic I’ve seen is claiming that this is going to be a MAJOR Best Picture contender and that many in the cast will get acting nominations.

    They all looked hot but I would still hit Cumberbatch…yes I am shameless.

    Also in toronto star an article came out today saying that Benedict got more cheers than Brad Pitt when he arrived at the premiere. I am so proud of Cumby at the moment :)

    • anet says:

      Fassbender, maybe. Other than that, all of you are sick in the brain. The blogger on here is too fixated on Cumber something, because he is not attractive at all. He scares me.

      • Elizabeth Rose says:

        So agree with this! Cumberbatch is totally scary – looks like a cross between a snake and an alien and the only thing that was working in his favor before was that his hair was messy and floppy, tending to make his features less stark. That hairstyle though, really emphasizes the worst of his features.

        Perhaps if he seemed like a stellar guy outside of his acting, I would like him more. But yeah, I’ll pass.

      • Mrs Jones says:

        yes yes yes! every time I see this guy I have this mental picture in my head : he’s sitting in an armchair, wearing a shirt, buttoned up v-neck cardigan and slippers and a proper tea cosy is propped in front of him on a tiny coffee table. That’s how sexy he is

      • curlsunited says:

        Good grief, Mrs Jones, what are you doing to me on a Sunday morning? I don’t deem it proper to visualize him sitting in an armchair, wearing nothing but a shirt, buttoned up v-neck cardigan and slippers. Can we at least have the tea cosy somewhere else?

      • Vesta says:

        I know, that mental picture is just utterly indecent. My eyes… please, move the tea cosy quickly onto his private parts! I mean he IS a cross between a snake and and alien like someone said above, but I cannot bear to see that snake part on Sundays – one day in a week is dedicated to rest, for God’s sake.

      • yolo112 says:

        !Amen to that! I once said this and another Cumby fan jumped all on me ‘if you don’t like him then why did you read it’..but all I read was blah blah blah, alien head looking guy blah blah… I never said he wasn’t a good actor, I said that my pants remain firmly on because there’s no downtown action when I see his face. I might say Fassy because I know about that present in his pants. But some laid back action from Brad might be fun to..

  2. Sixer says:

    Man alive, they ALL look hot.

    Chiwetel for me (and I just can’t call him Chewy no matter what anyone says, sorry).

    • Anna says:

      Fassy wins this oone for me bc I do NOT like Cumby’s suit. It’s half sharkskin, half insurance agent.

    • mom2two says:

      Ranking them for me:
      1. Chiwetel
      2. Brad Pitt
      3. Fassbender
      105. Cumberbatch. He wears a suit well and is talented but I find him so odd looking.

    • T.Fanty says:

      Dammit! I had a huge event on yesterday that kept me from the internet (horror) and I’m subsequently SO VERY late to the party. However, I just wanted to chime in with a massive thanks to Kaiser for our special Hot Guy Saturday!

      And, obviously, Cumby all the way. And I used to work with someone who knows Chewy well and always called him Chewy, so that’s why I do it. I don’t like nicknaming people (exception: pretty much everything I write here).

      Cumby also did a really lovely interview in a plaid shirt that’s bouncing around online. Because he’s a lumberjack and he’s okay.

      • Sixer says:

        I went to the village hall to watch Last Night of the Proms on big screen and to sing along. How um, middle-aged and British.

        Thanks to Kaiser too – sorry I didn’t say so before, Chewy notwithstanding (see interview link below though).

      • T.fanty says:

        Ooo, that sounds fun.

        After I posted, I saw the interview link. To be honest, I wouldn’t like it, either. I also don’t like people I don’t know abbreviating my name. I’d rather think it’s for that reason than the vaguely racist intonations that the nickname otherwise imply. It’s also a great name to pronounce fully. It’s like Cumberbatch – big and full and demands that you say it slowly. I love names that are packed with robust consonant sounds.

      • Sixer says:

        I wish I could say I don’t like Chewy because he doesn’t like it, but honestly – I think I’m being precious and borderline tumblrite. Sorry if I have sounded sanctimonious!

      • Rachelle says:

        I saw that interview and thought he was adorable. The interviewer guy asked great questions and not the usual dumb stuff like his name or otterbatch stuff. I also saw another interview where they asked Cumby about the leaked pics in Ibiza.

  3. LilyRose says:

    Fassy, like a Jeopardy buzzer; over and over again.

    I’ll take “I should know better for $800, Alex”

  4. Maria says:

    There is no comparison here: Fassbender wins hands down.

    I don’t care if he’s raggedy in sweatpants or looking fly in a suit, that man is scruffy gorgeous.

    Plus, his talent is amazing.

    /biased as hell

  5. lisa2 says:

    I just don’t find the Cumberbatch guy visually appealing

    Brad looks so good. I have been looking at pics for some time. He is just yummy. And everything you think a star should be

    Michael looks good here as well. And so does Chiwetel. And clapping for Steve McQueen too. He has a strange fashion sense.. but he looked very nice in the suit.

    Hoping the early buzz is realized.. and I wish you would post a picture of Lupita Nyong’o.. the woman is STUNNING

  6. Maya Dragunova says:

    Cumberbatch obviously!

  7. Soapboxpudding says:

    More photos of Chewy please! So, so handsome and talented. We all win on this one – Fassy & Cumby & Chewy = le sigh.

  8. Ryan's Sexy Girl says:

    Is it me or has Brad’s nose gotten bigger with age?

  9. Side-Eye says:

    I’ve never gotten the thing with Brad Pitt so he’s not even up for consideration. Michael and Benedict obviously, though I think I’d have a lot of fun going shopping and on walks and sight seeing with Chiwetel.

  10. LilyRose says:

    I am not trying to start someffin’ here, but Cumberbatch is wearing the shiny gray version of Hiddles’ shiny blue suit. Just sayin’

  11. judyjudyjudy says:

    They are all wearing too much make-up!

    And look yummy. sigh.

  12. Sharon says:

    I used to have a shrine in my junior-high school locker of Brad Pitt posters and cut outs… When “legends of the fall” and “a river runs through it” and “interview with a vampire” were big. Every movie he was ever in, I watched. Every magazine photo got cut out and glued into a special binder My crush on him knew no bounds. Oh, junior-high Me, life seemed so unfair, right? Unfortunately… Eh it’s in the past. So I’m going to say Fassy FTW

  13. lady mary. says:

    chiwetel has a harry potter scar ),i dont find either Cumby’s face or hair appealling ;but he definetly has one of the most sexiest necks ,makes me wanna attatch to it like a leech

  14. Chrissy says:

    Are my eyes fooling me? Brad Pitt looks more rough than Michael Fassbender (who has cleaned up well here).

  15. floretta50 says:

    Pitt has the edge! The others in my opinion have something about their face that is missing the mark of being really handsome.

  16. Harriet says:

    HOLY HOTNESS. Oh my god. Michael Fassbender!

  17. Nessa says:

    Brad Pitt went a little heavy on the Botox.

    And Fassy has the forever win… No matter who is the opponent. That man is pure sexxxxxx.

  18. mamabear says:

    Not a pitt’s fan, but i think he’s older than all of them.

  19. Shiv says:

    All very handsome. Cumberbatch is so slim, wish he would bulk up! I need to get my head out of the gutter but….Fassbender looks like he would be an absolute demon in the bedroom. I mean have you seen Shame???

  20. moon says:

    I managed to go to the red carpet event – Brad was super nice, he came early and spent 30 mins on the red carpet talking to fans and taking photos. Fassy is really, really hot in person – I mean he’s hot in photos, but he’s really good looking in the flesh. He was moody though, didn’t really stop to take photos and wasn’t so friendly. Benedict came late, and just rushed in after a wave or two – he’s quite petite in person. Not that tall and very slim.

  21. seVen says:

    Fassy could wreck my sweet shop… isnt that what he said once? It doesnt matter, I’d beat it like it owed me money.

  22. Y2k says:

    Cumberbatch. I have a soft spot for him. Then Fassy. Don’t get Brad Pitt.

  23. Nedds says:

    WTF is wrong with Brad’s face? Besides Brad they all looked good. So all at once..except Brad.

  24. GeeMoney says:

    Haven’t seen Brad Pitt look that handsome in a long time… wow. Fassy looks good too.

    Even though I would absolutely have both of them, I’d rather have Cumberbatch. Love him! He looks great.

  25. d says:

    Pitt: yes and he can stay in my bed
    Fassy: yes, but I’d kick him out after
    Chewy: yessssssss

  26. Yoli says:

    There was a pic that Fassy and Cumby took together and boy did I likey. I will take a threesome with Cumby & Fassy.

  27. Meryl says:

    Seems to be a chewy bandwagon here But I don’t find him attractive.

    • Bijlee says:

      Me neither. He has great style and I love his glasses (have the same pair were super cheap) but he looks better clean-shaven IMO. But then again I don’t find fassbender particularly attractive either. Dude is so boring and generic to me. Cumberbatch would be fun to go to parties with and cuddle with at night because of his voice alone. I’m not really in the mood to hit anyone today I guess. Especially brad pity! In his golden years id consider it, but in his current the love-child-of-billy-ray-cyrus-and-Keith-urban state…hell no.

      I’d make an exception for Idris Elba. Where are his TIFF pictures? Isn’t he there???!!!

  28. bohemia says:

    They look good. Love Brad here :-)

  29. Kim says:

    I’ll take Cumberbatch. His voice alone is porn. I crush on celebs who can keep me interested beyond looks. Just a nice face won’t do it for me. People can say what they want but he is appealing in that geeky quirky Dr. Who kind of way.

  30. Connie says:

    Does M.Fassbender smoke? If so that would be the reason why he looks a little old for his age.

  31. snork says:

    Actually Chiwetel doesnt like being called Chewy http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/discussion/2008/03/30/DI2008033001164.html

    But back to the point.
    Brad pit looks like he has been polished with an orbital sander, so no.
    Fassbender scares the hell out of me. Too animalistic for me and I reckon you would be walking like John Wayne for a week post coitus.
    Benedict. Lizard King perfection.

    • Esti says:

      Thank you for posting that link. I’m really uncomfortable with the coverage Chiwetel gets here and elsewhere, it’s just like when no one could bother to learn Quvenzhane Wallis’ name even when she was nominated for an Oscar. He’s the star of this movie (and a lot of us think he’s a lot hotter than Cumberbatch), it would be nice if he wasn’t just an afterthought on the millionth post about Fassbender and Cumberbatch.

    • Regina Lynx says:

      [--]I reckon you would be walking like John Wayne for a week post coitus.

      Oh dear God yes. Yes yes yes to this a hundred times over. *swoon*

  32. vv says:

    Cumby…he looks tall and dashing. Even his hair looks dashing.

  33. Patricia says:

    *Saves some of these pics to my PC especially Cumby’s pics*

  34. Megan says:

    Definitely Fassbender… For sure! Normally I like Benedict cumberbatch, but I dislike this suit and feel like he is looking even more odd than usual. Chewy just doesn’t do it for me at all… And while I normally think Brad is sexy beyond belief, in these pics something seems incredibly blah. I think maybe something about his hair? I’m having trouble pin pointing it.

  35. Zoey says:

    I don’t know why people try to act like Cumberbatch is the ugliest man on earth because he is not. I have seen wayyyyy worse. Though he is not a pin up sex bomb he is not ugly. I find him more cute and nerdy than ugly. I would probably take him over Fassbender. Sorry. And this is coming from someone who is not really a fan.

  36. Green is Good says:

    Whoa. Even my smartphone fainted from all this hot Dongness!

  37. Shannon says:

    Why William Bradley Pitt of course. And that Cumber man is just strange looking. If it was revealed he was an ET, I wouldn’t be shocked in the least bit.

  38. Kim1 says:

    Cool Brad and Fassy had dinner after screening at a Little Portugal eatery, Hudson Kitchen.I think Brad has left town he is not at TYAS press conference.According to Toronto Star Fassy was bumping and grinding at Soho house Thursday , night before screening

  39. Millie says:

    I don’t get Fassbender he scares me for some reason. Something about him.

    Brad looks a little off in the face.

    Chewy though I like him and his talent is not someone I want to bang. I would like to have an educational talk with him. And a cup of tea.

    Benedict I would get buzzed with him and give him styling tips. And also have conversations with him just to hear his voice.

    So I would f*ck none.

  40. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I love the nerd glasses on Chiwetel….I’ve always thought he was hot since he was in Love Actually—unfortunately that’s the only movie that I’ve ever seen him in.

    I don’t know why there aren’t any pics of Lupita, but she looked so beautiful. I had my head buzzed like hers for about a year. I hope she doesn’t change it–except maybe to grow it out. She looks like a model.

  41. Sally says:

    THEY ALL LOOK GOOD. Man I wish I was in Canada right now.

  42. allheavens says:

    I love Pitt, love Benedict. So ménage a trois?

    However, I just can’t get past Fassy’s square head, it is too big for his body. Besides that Fassy looks like his breathe perpetually smells of post cunnilingus and cheese.

  43. Vesta says:

    The best thing is hearing it’s a really good film!

    But Cumberbatch, there’s no doubt on that.
    Then Fassbender when I am…going on a bender.

    Chiwe is very cute too.

  44. Amanda A. says:

    Rare day on celebitchy here but can we just have all? I think they all look nice. This TIFF has been a treat with nice photos.

  45. Posey says:


    Speaking of Cumby did y’all hear about the girl that called his hotel room at 3AM? I found that so damn funny. Some believe this happened some don’t. But the girl does seem coocoo so it is most likely true.

    • Lindy79 says:

      I reallt hope its not true. Thats awful and such an invasion to be honest.
      According to ECanada hes confirmed he’s doing that land of Z film. Yay!

      Cumby, Fassy and Chiwetel…Pitt just doesn’t do it, never really did. Agree I dont recall a TIFF before having such a high Laminate List potential before. In addition we have Hiddleston, jackman, firth, gyllenhall to name a few.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      I can believe that someone would try it, but it’s hard to believe you could call a hotel at 3:00 a.m., ask for Benedict Cumberbatch, & be put through to his room!

      Much easier to simply curl up into one of his suitcases & get carried into his room, where you can jump out & shriek Surprise!

      And no, I have not been petite enough to try that for a long time.

  46. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Fassbender forever, followed up by Pitt. The others you can all have.

  47. Evelyn says:

    There is something very off about Brad face.

  48. lisa2 says:

    The fact that Brad Pitt at almost 50 is being compared to men that are 13-15 years younger..

    well that makes him the winner.

    *** and it is called aging. Most men get fuller faces as they age. My brother who is well over 6’8 and has always been lean because he played Bball has finally gotten a fuller face. He is about to turn 49..

    everyone is not doing fillers. And all the complaints about Brad not shaving and not wearing a suit.. Whatever.

    the man is still good looking. And again I saw the reaction he got at TIFF.. he has lost nothing.

    Let’s see where Fassy/Cumby are in 15 years..

  49. Agnes says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying this but… Fassy.

  50. I Choose Me says:

    Fassbender always and forever with Chiwetel a very close second and only because there’s a certain dignity about Chiwetel that keeps me from flying my freak flag too high in my fantasies about him.

    Brad is looking a little too smooth and plumpish in the face. Allergies?

  51. MissMary says:

    Does Pitt look a bit plastic’d up to anyone else?

    Despite t he suit, BC is my first,l ol, but he’s tired with Chwitel.

    Fassy just squicks me, sadly, and I don’t know why.

  52. Greata says:

    Brad Pitt for the win because I LOVE HIM! Fassy because you know THE SEX WOULD BE DIRTY BUT OOOOH SOOO GOOD! Chiwetel because he is one looooong drink of chocolate goodness. Cumby does not do it for me at all.

  53. Cari says:

    Cumberbatch just does not do it for me. I do not find him attractive in the least!!

  54. Timber says:

    Brad Pitt for sure. Cumberbatch is not good looking in any way. I find him rather odd too.

  55. Potato_Chip says:

    Fassbender!! Followed closely by Brad. Can I have a two-for-one please??!!

    Cumberbatch, nope nope nope. He looks too much like my ex, and the thought of his “O” face is just … no.

  56. d says:

    By the way, Celebitchy, it’s off-topic, but you should look for pics on Tom Wellington in Toronto (at the TIFF?) and do a post…he’s REEEEEALLLY improved with age…

    • Elodie says:

      Oi it’s Welling, Tom Welling! :D
      And hell to the yes he aged fiiiine, those grey sides and slight beard ooohhh ay papi!!! Very curious to watch the film and see if his acting has improved since Smallville.

      And there is a gif of him floating around the net when he was at Venice FF and it’s glorious!
      But I think he had his cute fangs removed… he was so cute with it. Oh well…

      • d says:

        Oh wow, I can’t believe I got his name wrong, I don’t usually do that! Thanks for pointing that out. Duh. Wellington just came out automatically-like. Anyway, yes, he’s fine!
        And on second thought, I’d take him over the Fass. People are right, there is a bit of a creep factor there with that guy. I’m not sure how much fun it would be.

  57. Raven says:

    Like others have said they all look nice. Cumbers, and Fassy are my favorite though.

  58. Anna Scott says:

    Fassbender!! Who else? Pitt is looking too feminine for my taste. Botox, ponytail, meh!

  59. Miss Jupitero says:

    Chiwetel wins by a mile. My God that man exudes grace and class from every pore.

  60. TherapyCranes says:

    None of these guys really get my panties in a bunch.

    Brad needs to cut his hair and lose the water weight. I understand he’s 50 but I lament the days when I was a teen and he was so hot.

    Fassbender has a creeper smile. Something about his face just gives me the creeps. I don’t know, I’m not into him.

    Cumberbatch is just plain no.

  61. Andrea says:

    Fassbender. The things I would do to that man are very x-rated for here. And I live in Toronto. ha

  62. j.eyre says:

    Whichever one was within arm’s reach.

  63. Missing out says:

    My parents live next door to Chiwetel in London and they call him Chi… He loves to sit around the piano and drink wine… It sounds like a magical world but everytime I’ve been to visit he’s filming in LA… To think I’m only one degree from Chi and two degrees from Fassy yet I’m on the other side of the world.. Heart. Breaks.

  64. EscapedConvent says:

    Who is the lovely lady in the pic with Chewy? I like her hair color.

  65. Crissy says:

    I’ll take Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt can watch :)

  66. lenje says:

    OT: I read that “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” got a 3 minute standing ovation at TIFF! I hope Idris Elba is there and CB gets his pics there. I’m so pumped up!

  67. Lily says:

    I have a soft spot for chiwetel, his reviews are amazing for this movie. people are writing he is destined for an oscar nom. apparently its mcqueens best movie so far, very much interested in seeing this.

  68. Beth says:

    Too many pictures of people who aren’t Benedict Cumberbatch. :-)

  69. Anna says:

    Um, can we talk about the…work that’s been done on Brad’s face?

  70. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    Cumberbatch looks like a wax statue of a gay alien. Always.

  71. manta says:

    Well, let’s just hope that ,during the building of that oscar campaign, the guy actually playing the leading role will be deemed worthy of having his name in the title of a post! Nice to mention that Chiwetel Ejiofor was in attendance though.
    And doesn’t McQueen have a cute wife and a set of photogenic children?He doesn’t expect media to pay attention to him only because he’s talented?

    By the way, you didn’t include him in your poll, but I would totally go for him.

  72. Norman says:

    Nothing for the guys :( I would rather the lady next to the gentleman in the bottom picture :) Okay, on the subject, they are all dashing.

    • Hannah says:

      I agree with this comment a lot. The bloggers on this site should read some reviews. Ejiofor is the lead, he is in every scene of the movie more or less. He gives an astonishing performance and is mentioned as the one who is guaranteed an Oscar nom in the same vein as cate blanchett is mentioned for her performance in woody allens new film. What’s more cumberbatch part is small, brad Pitts part is even smaller. All the buzz is about the director and ejiofor and to a lesser degree fassbender and newcomer lupoto n’yongo, both tipped for noms in the supporting category. This isn’t cumberbatch movie so can we relax with making him the star of a movie he isn’t the most important player nor the one who gets all the rave reviews? By the looks of it people really like ejiofor on this site so I don’t see what’s stopping the site from puttiing his name in the headline? The man is a freaking obe, with more prestigious acting awards than fassbender, cumberbatch and Pitt put together so please give him some respect.

      • Sixer says:

        To be fair, Ejiofor is never going to be a perennial on a gossip site like this. It’s a celeb site, not a movies site.

        We spend a great deal of time here mocking Tommy Try-hard, Benny the Bitch and SharkFass, and lusting after them too. It’s all part of the celebrity game – they play it and we play it.

        Ejiofor really isn’t like that. He’s never likely to do anything worth gossiping about or to rush about trying to collect himself a fandom. So the game – not the quality of his performances or acting pedigree – will never attract a huge number of players.

        He’ll be admired and taken seriously rather than abducted into Thornfield fantasies. Much as the game we play hereabouts is fun, I’m glad Ejiofor isn’t likely to be a player. And much as Tommy might like to quote Shakespeare and Benny might like to imitate Bob Dylan with his banners, there is a big difference between these two and Chiwetel.

        I hope it stays that way.

      • Vesta says:

        Sixers view – I very much agree with it.

        I don’t think there is an intention to diss Chiwetel or any of the people who are involved in this film.

        I could complain why Brad Pitt is presented in this post almost like he was the only producer when in fact there is a bigger bunch of producers. But I won’t, cause I feel the main tone here is to oggle men (and Chiwe too is def being lusted here) and chitchat about the most “scandalous” ones.

      • Vesta says:

        EDIT: sorry, to OGLE men with just one g

      • Hannah says:

        @sixer the point isn’t that he should become a celeb or even covered as much as cumby and the rest. The point is that this is very much his movie, and this site can’t even include him in the headline when they write about it. Its the 3 or 4th time its happened now. I can understand that fassy is mentioned he does have a big part in this movie but cumberbatch? As much as i appreciate his gifts, thats just because there is some kind of obsession with him on this site. You misunderstand if you think ejiofor should be shipped in the silly way certain men are here but I don’t see why he can’t be the headline when Bryan Cranston or cate blanchett can when they have New movies or such out. Those two are serious respected actors that don’t have a lot of gossip too but still when they are the lead in a movie, gets praise or is up for an award they do get posts here so it’s not a good argument to say ejiofor shouldnt because he doesnt do as mych press as said others. This site does cover some actors who are more known for their work than their private life so I don’t see why this actor can’t be one of them, when he has a big film out that is anticipated to dominate the award season.

      • Side-Eye says:

        I agree with hannah. I’ve noticed this the past couple of days and it’s starting to irk me a little bit, especially considering I so often see people complain about this very thing.

  73. Halicon says:

    Fassbender looks alright, until he smiles and his wrinkles and shark jaw comes out.

  74. Lotta says:

    I seem to be alone, but I think Cumberbatch is ugly. The other two however, I jump on them any day.

    BRAD PITT and fassdong
    cocumberbitch doesn’t do anything for me thus is a good actor.

    None of these guys do much for me, but I guess I’d pick Fassy.

  77. Ipl says:

    All of them except for Brad Pitt. He just looks too greasy, unkept and unhealthy.

  78. WTF says:

    I’m just going to go ahead and say it. Brad Pitt is over. When are we going to stop remembering and lusting after what he used to look like and start seeing him for how he looks today? A smoking hot mess…

    I’m going to go off topic here and say that this movie has a really good chance at winning big come Oscar season.Now if I had to choose only one,it would have to be Fassy even though Hugh Jackson is truly my one and only. Cumberbatch just does nothing for me.

    Chewe should be in the title of future posts about 12 years of the slave for sure.
    Because he is the lead and because this is more or less the first time a black actor has the lead in a hollywood studio movie about slavery .

    By making the supporting white actors more important by focusing on them when he is the lead we just drive home the point as to why the studios feel its safer to make a white man the lead when telling these kind of stories.
    Its important that the story of slavery gets told from a black man or womans point of view, but these kind of stories will only get told if there is an interest in seeing stories about historical black characters in the mainstream and for that we need leading actors who are bankable for studios in that they can get bums on seats. Apart from denzel and will smith there really isnt anyone and i dont think either of them would have been right for this part.

    Bottom line is we cant complain about lack of black actors in leading parts if we dont show interest when they do have leading parts.

    There is a time for everything. 5th estate is cumberbatchs movie and evidently he does a fine job as assange. 12 years is chewes movie, evidently every one thinks he is destined for a great award season. He deserves our attention as much as the rest of the actors who have done oustanding performances this year wether he is a famewhore or not.

    Personally i am looking forward to both movies. They are both great actors. I have had the pleasure of seeing them both on the stage in the past and both are wonderful and highly talented.

    Cumberbatch. The man has a thing about him. Plus he is funny, chatty and dorky. Oh and he is also nice to fans wherever he goes. I should know because I have met him twice.

      Lucky you! Do tell, please.

      Oh, and I just read your comment above where you mentioned the pictures from Ibiza. Did he actually say that they were leaked to the press? That’s interesting.

      • Rachelle says:


        Yes. In this interview he explains that the pics were not meant for the public and someone leaked them and took them to the papers. (From the sounds of it). But he was talking about the wedding pics. And he said it wasnt a publicity stunt either. Now he hasnt mentioned the pics with the model but im guessing he is also referring to those to.

        And yes when I meet him it was back in NYC last year when he came for sherlock promotion. After he signed some autographs for alot of fans and I was able to get him to sign my Sherlock season 1 dvd. Mind you this was when he was done filming Star Trek so he was beefier. He was very nice. I was so nervous to ask him to sign my DVD though..lol..

        2Nd time meeting him was this year back in may when he came to NYC for star trek promo. We were waiting outside the late show building. There is a video on youtube somewhere of it. I didnt get to take a pic or get anything signed because it wasn’t enough time but we did make eye contact and I said hi and he said hi back. Lol I was fangirling so hard that day. Again he was very nice. What I like what he does when he meets fans is he holds conversations alot of times.

      • curlsunited says:

        Thanks Rachelle, both for the link and how you met Benedict. Sounds great. As I said: lucky girl.

    Unpopular opinion but I do not find Fassbender attractive. I know he is a sex titan on this site but the man is downright creepy. Sharkbender.

    reading this makes me feel comforted. more cumby for me!

    Fassbender hands down. Forever and always.
