Michael Fassbender versus Viggo Mortensen: who looked hotter in London?

When you put Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender together, standing side-by-side, people are going to pay attention. For some reason, we feel like we have to choose. Like we can’t take one of each from the dong buffet, like it’s a dongy cage-match, Viggo versus Fassy. Over the past months, as Viggo and Michael promoted A Dangerous Method, I’ve set up various “cage matches” to see who you, gentle reader, would choose. Shall we do it again?

These are photos of Viggo and Michael from last night’s gala premiere of A Dangerous Method in London. I went a little bit overboard with the photo gallery because… you know… I can’t resist new Fassy photos. Go ahead and scream about my bias – Fassy looks better in these pics. I’m not sure what Viggo is trying to accomplish in that cream suit. Not just a cream suit – I think it’s corduroy? And he paired it with a black shirt and tie? Odd. I do like the way Viggo looks here, though – his face looks good, and it doesn’t seem like he’s wearing too much foundation. It’s just that Fassy always looks sexier to me at the end of the day. Sigh…

Shall I say some bad things about Fassy just so I don’t die of Fass-lust? Here goes… I don’t like his hair this short. It ages him. And I don’t think he should wear jeans (much less SKINNY JEANS) for his premiere. Say what you will about Viggo’s fug suit, but at least he wore a suit.

We should have a man thrown-down over their profiles. I love Fassy’s profile. I’m a whore for a good profile.

Really, though. Who would you rather?

    None of them looks hot, just two ugly guys.
    Keira is cute.

    • RobN says:

      Couldn’t agree more. Viggo is starting to look like Glenn Close as Albert Nobbs.

    • Tiffany says:

      Keira actually has splotchy spray tan issues going on in the back. Her dress is open, and on other sites they show where she is blotchy like a Lohan.

    • gigi says:

      Homewrecker vs girlfriend-beater. Yeah, they’re so attractive all right. Keira’s looked the same for years, it’s like she doesn’t age, but I don’t know if that’s purely a good thing.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Who is the homewrecker and who is the beater? I never know what Viggo is up to. I like him but not enough to Google what he is up to.

        Still #teamViggo because they both look older than I do but he is the only one who IS older than I am.

  2. atlantapug says:

    I was going to vote for Viggo in a no holds barred, hand to hand combat, cage fight with the Fass, but the grey hair? When did Viggo get so old looking?

    Default vote for Fass for being enough years younger than the V. to win. But if V. was looking more spry, I definitely think he would destroy the Fass! He just seems more “primal”.

    And I now officially hate Kiera Knightley.

    • podzol says:

      Speaking of Atlanta… the man’s in Georgia, Atlanta right now for the 12 Years a Slave pre-production. I was surprised he flew back for the Dangerous Method premiere, but that’s what one calls a very pleasant surprise! Love the pictures where Fassy, Keira, and Viggo dance with each other at the after-party.

      • T.C. says:

        What what? Where are the dancing pictures?

      • podzol says:

        Certain official photographers’ websites … but you can save yourself the time + trouble and just type his name in Tumblr and you’ll be assured to come across a few of them. Even one where he takes a stab at playing on a grand piano!

    • SoCalGal in FL says:

      I think Viggo’s gray makes him seem too ‘delicate’. Anyone?

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Viggo is like 54 or something. Fassbender is like 34 or something. Viggo looks old because well, he kind of is but Fassbender looks old too. Unless he is pulling a CZJ, I’m not into him. I want a boy toy to actually look like a boy toy not like *I* am the toy. LOL

  3. watchingyoubitchh says:

    Fassdong is the winner

  4. Nanea says:

    “Really, though. Who would you rather?”

    Keep your fingers crossed that Fassy will make an appearance at the Berlin International Film Festival for the Haywire screening on the 15th. Then you’ll get your answer…

    … if I manage to foist my DH on someone else for the day…

  5. Sisi says:

    Viggo needs a bit more eyebrows for my taste

  6. Asli says:

    That top photo looks so supernatural! That’s some damn good lighting.

    Who would I rather? Can’t they take turns to wreck the sweetshop? Man, I wouldn’t mind them taking turns.

  7. whatthehell456 says:

    Fassy wins….ALWAYS. And when did Viggo start looking so old? Normally I go for the guy that’s got a couple miles on him, but V looks like he’s been on the road for too long 🙁

  8. Tapioca says:


    Scourge of Carpathia, sorrow of Moldavia…

    Seriously though, MF was hot in XM:FC but he’s got 19 years on VM and is aging badly.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      So is Viggo 53 or is Fassy 34? I just know I’m almost exactly in the middle and they both look a bit older than I do.

  9. Anne says:

    Both of them. Kiera too. She is gorgeous.

  10. CL says:

    Fassdong. Of course, Viggo has never done it for me, so that factors in, but Fassdong will always win in my book (at least this month). Bee-too-tee-full!

  11. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    Fassbender. Right here. Right now. I’m prepared!

  12. Theuth says:

    Viggo. Damn, that man has finally start to age, but I would still hit it like the fist of a God!
    Fassbender can watch. Then, AFTER, he can come too.

  13. Maya says:

    I really don’t care for the film. It’s about time people woke up and stopped marketing Freud/Jung (two renowned psychological quacks with medical degrees), but I do think that age is catching up with Viggo lately. His face now reminds me of Jack Palance.
    So Fassbender it is – but without that god awful red beard. Cripes!

  14. Manuela says:

    Fassbender per sempre! ti amo Fassy!

  15. gwen says:

    Really Kaisar, Why do you keep having this contest? Is it because you were suprised that Viggo had so many complments the first time, So you keep doing the same comparison until you get the outcome that you want. Fass is not that great looking he is average at the most. and like someone on this board pointed out Viggo has 20 years on him. So you are having a contest between an average looking guy with a guy that still looks as good as Fass with 20 years on him.

  16. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Homewrecking Viggo or alleged woamn beater Fassy?

    I never thought the day would come where I’d say this with Viggo in any competition, but sadly neither. His sex appeal has waned on me.

  17. lisa says:

    LOL at the swooning..

    and SMH

  18. Bellydancer says:

    Thank you Kaiser for posting this as I was having Fassdong withdrawal since you had no posts on my gingery viking for over a week. I was just imagining him rubbing his ginger beard between my heaving mocha colored breasts while gently biting at my ears and throat cooing to me in gaellic and celtic and whatever the hell else they speak in Ireland. (sips cold water) I am going to have to vote for Michael on this one and now that I have finally seen Shame and the famous dong, I can admit it to myself that I am truly whipped by this man (face streaming with tears as co workers look concerned) Yes bitches I am reading another Fassbender post go away!

  19. Incredulous says:

    Viggo looks like he’s channeling Christopher Walken’s Bond villain in that outfit.

  20. jinni says:

    Well look who remembered that they were in A Dangerous Mind now that Shame isn’t getting the awards everyone thought it would receive.

    • meme says:

      Funny that you say this, because Fassbender promoted ADM much more than Keira and Viggo. He never forgot about it, he attended every film festival besides Toronto (and he had good reason not to). Somehow nobody criticizes Keira and Viggo for skipping both NY and Berlin, which Fassy attended. He gave lots of interviews about both films.
      And Shame doesn’t get awards? Fass is nominated for BAFTA, GG and got almost every possible award or nomination from critics.

      Get your facts straight people before you start talking about something.

      • jinni says:

        I don’t follow Keira and Viggo like that, so why should I care about them? Plus nominations for his performance aren’t wins, so like I said he didn’t get all the rewards for his performance in that movie that everyone was swearing he would get.

      • podzol says:

        @jinni: You might not follow Keira and Viggo’s careers, thus not noticing their respective amounts of press, but the (good) point that meme makes is that your opinion is baseless.
        All three main leads have done plenty of press for the movie, moreso from August-October during the all hectic festivals. They’ve more than fulfilled their duties in that regard.

    • T.C. says:

      Lie much? Michael Fassbender attended EVERY SINGLE EVENT for ‘A Dangerous Method’. The only time he missed was ONE press conference in Toronto when he had to fly back to Venice to accept an award. He grabbed the award, gave his thank you speech got himself back on the plane to Toronto in time for ‘A Dangerous Method’s’ premiere the next day. Unlike his co-stars Viggo and Keira who have missed a lot of promotional events for ‘A Dangerous Method’. Fassy had worked overtime for both ‘Shame’ and ‘A Dangerous Method’ so stop lying. Oh and by the way he has won about 10 awards now for Shame and nominated for BAFTA and Golden Globes. This premiere for ‘A Dangerous Method’ had been planned months ahead of time before any awards shows. Go to the Sony Pictures Classics website and you will see how they planned out the slow release for ‘A Dangerous Method’.

      • jinni says:

        Why did you feel it necessary to call me a “bitch” (I read your comment before you edited it)? I see now that like Brange threads, Fassbender’s threads are slowly becoming havens for uncalled for name calling towards fellow posters.

        As for my initial comment I guess he has done promotion for this movie and maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention to it. It just seem that all the talk and attention was going towards Shame and it looked like he’d jumped ship on A Dangerous Method. Oh well.

      • podzol says:

        Ah, that’s kinda unfortunate. I guess overprotectionism can manifest itself in odd ways, though I do hope that personal name-callin/dissing for dissenting opinions doesn’t leak itself to too many threads in general; it’s something I’ve never really understood and happens way too often in the Brangelina thread without (seemingly) being moderated. Well, don’t be put off by the Fass for that: imo one can find pretty smart, hilarious (and HORNY) commenters in his posts 😉

    • Addison says:

      Here’s a thought Jinni maybe he goes to events that are PLANNED months in advanced! I don’t suppose Michael just walks up randomly to theaters and demands that they roll out the red carpet for him… Huh?

  21. Lenna says:

    Fassy, no question. The ginger will always win in a competition

  22. Quest says:

    Do we really need to ask? Of course Fassbender

  23. mk says:

    They look related. I’d go Viggo first, to teach me how to handle Fassy.

  24. JudyJudyJudy says:

    skinny jeans on a guy are always a no. Viggo talks too much. Rather go shopping with Keira.

  25. ANON says:

    OMG! I wouldn’t touch either of them to save my life! EEEEWW!!! They both look like old lesbians!

  26. Cathy says:

    Go ahead Fassey, release the beast…I’m ready for ya.

  27. serena says:

    Fassbender creeps me out when he show his teeth. Seriously.

    Viggo seems more old in these photos, but he’ll always be my number 1.

  28. Ann says:

    Neither one of the guys looks great.

  29. The Truth Fairy says:

    Did Viggo’s deal with the Devil run out or something?! It’s like he aged 10 years overnight! The last premiere photos CB posted showed him looking hot as usual. But in these pix (and the ones CB posted of him with Ariadna) it’s like we fast-forwarded a decade.

    I know he smokes a lot so maybe it’s catching up with him finally. Whatever it is, he needs to take some time to rest and concentrate on his health.

    • The Truth Fairy says:

      OK I must change my previous comment. The Daily Mail also has photos of the premiere and Viggo looks much better. Maybe these photos were taken in weird lighting?

      Also, in one of the pix he has his hand on Keira’s ass and she is looking over her shoulder at the camera with a cheeky grin. She must have had a great time making this film! Wink! Wink! Might also explain why Ariadna wasn’t there.

  30. Anna says:

    Viggo, always Viggo!

    Fassbender has to stop smiling. Seriously… his teeth are scary.

  31. miss silver says:

    Fassy is perfect — great combination of beautiful and masculine, Thanks for his profile shot. Wow.

  32. kristipistol says:

    Fassbender, but dye Viggo’s hair and brows dark brown and there will be more competition

  33. BW says:

    I watched some of the extras on my Lord of the Rings DVDs, and Viggo was interviewed with a grey hair and a crewcut, and that was 10 years ago. It was a bit jarring when I’d just watched him as Aragorn. I don’t care for him with grey hair. He doesn’t do silver fox well. He needs to keep dyeing his hair AND his eyebrows, and get a decent haircut.

  34. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Great post Bellydancer – you could be a romance novelist or columnist if you are not a writer already 🙂

    • podzol says:

      I agree! Gotta love those Bellydancer Fassnecdotes. Some of them were so steamy, they even got moderated off the comments! Don’t stop and keep ’em coming 🙂

      • Bellydancer says:

        Hey guys I am trying to control myself since I saw Shame but it is very hard to do with Kaiser posting pictures of my ginger everywhere plus I am confused about all the hate coming his way lately. SMH at all the haterade towards my sensitive Irish lover(Kaiser stalks me silently now)I like Viggo too as an actor and he has looked better but my breasts are calling for that gingery beard to scratch up against them and…. see here I go again.(lol)

      • podzol says:

        I must have missed the post where you saw Shame and shared your thoughts on it! What’d you think? Wasn’t it one of the most depressive sex portrayed on screen? I’ve yet to come across someone who was turned on by the movie. Even with the prospect of salad tossing, LOL.

        Btw, am pretty sure he’s growing out a beard for his role in 12 Years, so look ahead for a full-on hippie scraggly long thing on his face in the months to come 😉

  35. Marissa. says:

    Fassy forever, and ever, and ever.

  36. janie says:

    Sorry ladies but Viggo isn’t doing it for me. I’d take Michael’s shark teeth and ginger any day.

  37. Not Famous says:

    Fassbender, no contest!!!!

  38. Lawyergirl says:

    I’m sorry, but in that picture with both Fassy and Viggo in profile Viggo kinda looks like Glenn Close. Not hot.

  39. superkind says:

    sorry but after seeing pictures on popsugar i have to admit i can’t deal with piggy back ride and mock fights…and viggo doesn’t seem to enjoy…
    so i have to say i’d rather enjoy some viggo …

  40. Mirror says:

    Is Fassy dyeing his hair? Or why is his beard red and his other hair dark?!

  41. Reece says:

    I’ve answered this before.
    Viggo Always Viggo.

  42. novaraen says:

    Both!!!!!!!! Together! Mmmmnomnomnom!!

  43. Maria says:

    i sooooooooo hate Kiera Knightley :@

  44. Jenna says:

    Viggo. Fassy looks like a creep to me….especially when he smiles. **shudders**

  45. Ari says:

    It was going downhill fast until I saw Fass smile. I grinned like a schoolgirl and gave my thong up to him. I love me some Viggo but damn that smile he has is looking creepy :L Kiera looks quite beautiful.

  46. Boromir's bytch says:

    I prefer a dirtier version of Viggo. Don’t like it when they try to clean him up. Take his picture again at the end of the evening after he’s ditched that awful suit and I’d like him better.

  47. Dee says:

    Yes, you did go overboard with the photo gallery, but Michael looks better.

  48. skuddles says:

    Viggo but of course! 😉

  49. Lindy says:

    You know what? Viggo brought the hot, I think. Man, I love his smirk. And his suit, actually. Yum.

  50. Beatriz says:

    Viggo, always Viggo 😀

  51. T.C. says:

    Kaiser, is it bad that I want to lick my computer screen full of Fassdong pictures? I was such a good girl until I got converted to a Fassgirl by you 🙂

  52. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    Fassy if he was wearing a decent pair of dark wash jeans or an actual suit. Viggo looks a little mafia hitman here and I dunno how to feel about it but I love them both and can’t wait to see the movie.

  53. Audrey says:

    Team Viggo! He reminds me of Peter Strauss on whom I’ve had a crush since Rich Man, Poor Man.

  54. Camille (The original) says:

    Fassy all the way.

  55. Carolinna says:

    Fassy!!! Hand down, i don’t care what he wears he still looks so sexy

  56. Carolinna says:

    Fassy!!! Hands down, i don’t care what he wears he still looks so sexy

  57. Nonchalant says:

    Fassy is a turn off,he has has yellow shark teeth,don’t even get me started with his jeans.. and viggo is to old and is wearing a terrible suit…tough choice between two ewws.I’ll choose Viggo jst because I still picture him( in my head) exactly how he looked from lord of the ring,good times…btw I think bellydancer should start writing romantic novels and give Johanna lindsey and Nora Roberts a run for thier money..

  58. Angelique says:

    Both… Can’t decide, they are hot !!!

  59. Kim says:

    Viggo! The other guy doesnt even begin to hold a candle to Viggo.

  60. hollyhood says:

    Javier Bardem!

    But seriously, WTF?? Viggo looks like someone’s pedophile grandfather and that other guy looks boring.

    Keira looks like a sparkling fire as usual. Those are two lucky men.

    And who is beating their women? And who is the homewrecker?

    And one of them looks extremely gay.

  61. rita says:

    Always Viggo, he is the only good person in Hollywood and face means nothing, but he is actually hot and gorgeous.

  62. izzyvalentine says:

    Viggo! But I would want him to keep the ‘stache from the movie 🙂
