Michael Fassbender likes to dance. We’re always hearing stories about him dancing his ginger off at premiere parties, and occasionally there are brilliant photos of The Bender dancing with The Batch (sidenote: when I write a torrid romance novel, it will be called The Bender & The Batch). So what happens when Dancing Fassy joins forces with a old-school song-and-dance man like Hugh Jackman? Something wonderful. And something sort of sketchy.
Actors Hugh Jackman and Michael Fassbender reportedly danced around to “Blurred Lines” in between takes for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The 45-year-old actor told The Sun, “Michael was particularly enamored with the video to “Blurred Lines”.”
He added, “We’d strut about. I used to play the song in between takes on the X-Men set. It was a lot of fun. Everyone would just go into character and we’d be strutting around. It was identical to the video but we’d be mutants.”
It wasn’t just dancing either, Jackman added that they would sing along to the huge Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams hit, “I didn’t need to take the high bits. You’d be surprised what talented singers Michael and James [McAvoy] are. They could get up there.”
I would have preferred if Hugh and Michael were slow-dancing to “These Arms of Mine” just because that would have been… perfection. Will you take this? Or is it dumb because it’s stupid “Blurred Lines”? You have to remember, when they were filming X-Men: Days of Future Past, “Blurred Lines” was super-popular and we weren’t intimately familiar with Robin Thicke’s skeeze.
