Michael Fassbender was making out with Natalie Portman in Texas: OMG?!

I really don’t want to talk about Natalie Portman. I was going to skip over these photos entirely because they were just labeled “Natalie Portman on the set in Austin, Texas.” But my biscuit gave me a little nudge and whispered, “Michael Fassbender might be in those photos, you know.” I got the tip a few days ago that Fassbender was in Texas, somewhat undercover, having signed on to Terrence Malick’s new, untitled film at the last minute. This is the same film where Natalie Portman is a blonde, and where she’s wearing kind of trashy clothes. Well, Fassbender is in these photos. And he’s making out with Natalie. UGH.

I guess he’s done filming The Counselor with Ridley Scott? Probably. And Fassy wasn’t attached to this Malick project either – he literally must have gotten the call, like, last week. This film also includes (for now) Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Holly Hunter. But who knows who will make it to the final cut, you know? Malick is famous for cutting actors out of his films. All I know about the plot is that it involves “intersecting love stories”. Maybe Fassy will end up with Ryan Gosling?! Here’s hoping. Oh, there’s a photo of them shooting a scene together too!


Nice. Anyway, enjoy the Fassy. I kind of want to scream at Natalie – “GET. OFF. MY. BOYFRIEND.”

    Her body looks great. Face is meh for me and hair is hellz no.

  2. Sway says:

    He’s gorgeous. She’s just annoying.

  3. alons-y alonso says:

    She is way too stuck up to pull off whatever is happening in that pink cardigan pic.

  4. Brown says:

    Natalie’s blonde hair isn’t really working for me. Or maybe it’s just that awful 90s bellyshirt/jean skirt combo making it look like trailer park central.

    • linlin says:

      I think thats probably the point. Not every hairstyle/make-up/wardrobe is supposed to make the acteur look their best, trashy might be exactly what was right for the role.

  5. Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

    The pic. Of her. With the boobs. I’m laughing so hard.

  6. Maritza says:

    When did Natalie Portman get a boob job?

    • Kelly says:

      They definitely look bigger, but it could just be padding for the film. I can’t remember the last photos of herr off-set.

      • Christina says:

        She did have a baby quite recently so maybe her boobs have grown a bit because of that. But I’d say most of it is padding in a vain attempt to make her look sexy’. It’ll take a bit more than a stuffed bra, I’m afraid.

      • Amelia says:

        I’m voting a heavy duty padded bra. There were some creepy stalker photos of her with her son quite recently, and her boobs looked quite petite then. Could be chicken fillets, also.
        On a slightly different note, I saw Leon for the first time yesterday, and she was the oldest looking 12 year old I’ve ever seen.

  7. CAM says:

    Why is her bra super padded in one picture and not the others? lol Is her character going to get breast implants during the film?

  8. Ranunculus says:

    If this movie is anything like Tree of Life I will try to get away from it as far as possibly. Malick’s movies lately are nothing but beautiful pictures and very little context, story or plot. (This guy actually calls himself a film-maker) Natalie Portman is another reason to avoid a movie since she was annoyingly unsexy in that scene with Mila Kunis (who is sexy as hell). Yeah maybe I can be convinced if Fassy got together doing something naughty with Gosling or at least with Cate Blanchett. Even these pics with Portman and Fassy made me almost throw up.

  9. marie says:

    meh, it would be more interesting if they made out with the reptilian man. and I’m glad I’m not the only one who wondered what was going on with her boobs..

    • j.eyre says:

      I was in favor of the Fassbender/Gosling pairing but now that you have brought Lizard Man into the mix, Marie, I am going to throw my vote for this. A triangle, mayhap? Good times can always be found with a Lizard Man in the mix.
      Is Natalie Portman in these photos? I can’t see past how good Fassbender looks (and, of course, that there is a Lizard Man)

  10. Boo says:

    Dude with the tattoos knows how to steal the focus, eh?

    • mia girl says:

      Yeah. I’m more intrigued by him than the plot of the movie. Is he an actor, or is he just part of the crew? Is he the asst director, or a grip or just there to adorn the shot? I’m now obsessed with the tattooed guy!

      • jamie says:

        Erik Sprague, aka lizardman. amazing man and entertainer so he’s probably not crew.

      • mia girl says:

        Thanks jamie
        So if he’s in the film, now I am kinda intrigued by the plot, or at least this specific scene.
        Who am I kidding, this Is Malick so it likely will not be coherent or connected… Just as random as it seems.

      • HotPockets says:

        My husband met the lizard man at a bar in El Paso and got lots of pictures with him.

        That’s really cool. I’ve never heard of him so thought he was just part of the cast wearing a ton of makeup.

    • Zigggy says:

      I can’t tell if that is the lizard man or Dominic Monahan done up like him…

      • jen d. says:

        I knew I wasn’t the only one who saw Dominic Monahan! I don’t think it’s him, but can you imagine how much time in the makeup chair it would have taken him?

  11. valleymiss says:

    I’m fairly certain the padded boobs are for the character…cuz everyone knows Natalie is petite in all ways.

  12. effy says:

    this camera in the face can be awkward. i would be laughing the whole time.

  13. Mira says:

    I want to know more about the mohawk tattooed guy. Would be interesting if he’s a character in the movie and Malick gives him more screen time than the rest.

  14. judyjudy says:

    I know she’s not popular around here but I really like Natalie Postman. She’s one of my favorite actresses to watch on screen.

  15. Talie says:

    Natalie looks great as a blonde.

  16. diana says:

    Love Natalie Portman, ‘meh’ about fassbender unless he takes his pants off.
    Tattoo guy steals the show!

  17. Chatcat says:

    “Maybe Fassy will end up with Ryan Gosling?!” Gee thanks Kaiser. UGH!

    Now I won’t be able to function for the rest of the day! As if Fassy isn’t hot enough, me and Fassy is steamin, Fassy and RG is friggin like a melting candle. Good God, gotta go try and regroup.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Can you imagine, Chat? Yes I CAN imagine and I WILL imagine.


      • Chatcat says:

        Oh Kitten, Gossbender is genius! Really, I was gonna go get another cup of java, but short of a shot of “something” I think I’ll get a tall cold glass of water….whew.

        Of all the images I can conjur about Fassy, him with Portman was and still is never one of them. What a mismatch! She is such a wet dishrag.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        ITA Chat-she is beautiful, but definitely the least-sexy woman I have ever seen.

  18. dooliloo says:

    Sorry but I’m really distracted by the Lizard Man!

  19. dcypher1 says:

    I wonder what that green lizard looking guy is doing in this movie???

  20. TheOriginalKitten says:

    *blocks out Natalie Portman with hand*

    Ooooohhh, Fassy looks good in these pics.

    I will definitely see this movie-great cast!

    • Ranunculus says:

      Don’t be too disappointed if Terry M. decides to cut all of them out in favour of dinosaurs, birds and sunsets.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Hi Ranunculus-Never saw Tree of Life (mixed reviews from friends) but I was always a fan of Badlands.

        Is it that bad if the guy just wants to make aesthetically-pleasing films? I mean, there’s room for that right? 🙂

      • Ranunculus says:


        Sure there is room for that, my problem is – it’s JUST aesthetic beauty and nothing else. Badland had characters, a story and a plot, but since “The Thin Red Line”, which already had paper thin characters, Terry M. has been steadily reducing actors to beautiful faces (sometimes they are allowed to mumble if they are lucky) and plots that seems to be just random series of pictures. Sure he has stunning cinematography, but cinematography should support a story, not just (unless you want to make a nature documentary) be the story. He thrives on this aura of a recluse, but honestly I think he is just a big phoney.

  21. Nessa says:

    Maybe Fassy will help Natalie loosen up? She seems so uptight and a snotty. Maybe he can actually make her sexy, too! For such a gorgeous woman, she just has no sex appeal to me.

    • Gracie says:

      I still don’t get what’s so gorgeous about her, to me she looks like an aardvark, and she’s so boring and snobbish that I find her insufferable.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      I agree, lets hope so. Natalie is a pretty woman, but she has zero sex appeal.

  22. Christina says:

    Meh to Natalie Portman. I like her as an actress, but I agree with the non-sexy comments. She is beautiful but she does not have sex appeal. However if anyone can bring it out Fassy can! I am still trying to recover from the thought of Gossbender. If nothing else, that will be enough for me to want to see this movie.

  23. Honey Poo Poo formally known as beyonce's bump says:

    Fassbender! Portman is okay to me, I don’t get the hate she receives.

  24. Stacie says:

    I never really care either way for Natalie but thanks for the photos of Fassy . I hope he can do as many movies as possible.

  25. Ravensdaughter says:

    Looks like a crazy film-love Lizardman!

  26. Christina says:

    Natalie is beautiful. But she has all the charisma and sex appeal of a slice of white bread.

  27. Cathy says:

    Natalie, get your hands off our Fassy. He belongs to us, here at Celebitchy. What’s with the Lizard Guy? He’s kind of cool looking.

  28. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Is it certain that Bale is still part of that cast? Maybe Fassy wasn´t listed because he replaced Bale last minute?
    Considering the story is about 2 intersecting love triangles (1: Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Haley Bennett, 2: Natalie Portman, Christian Bale?, Cate Blanchett), it doesn´t really make sense to me to include another high profile actor.
    I hope Bale is still part of it, Gosling, Bale, Fassy that would be an epic dongfest.

    • carrie says:

      One month ago,the producers again said Bale was in the “other” Malick movie but it’s possible he dropped because finally he ‘ll do another movie with David O Russel in february whereas he yet had dropped this movie in june (to spend time with his family)

    • I Choose Me says:

      Fassy, Bale and Gosling?! Jaysus I just showered and put on clean underpants now I’m gonna have to go change.

  29. Brittney says:

    Natalie’s personality has also rubbed me the wrong way in recent years, but I don’t understand why so many people can’t find her sexy! Obviously you all have your reasons, but I can’t think of any, unless you’ve been following her career since Léon: The Professional and still can’t bring yourself to sexualize her.

    That said, this is definitely a movie I’ll be watching — THAT CAST!! — but I hope I don’t have to wait a decade for it.

  30. Meanchick says:

    No worries. She’s not his type.

    • Christa says:

      Yea..not sure anyone was actually worried. If anything it would be because Natalie IS MARRIED. Plus a new mother. But I guess it wouldn’t be a real Fassbender discussion if someone didn’t feel the need bring up what his ‘type’ is. It’s a photo from a film set, no one really thinks these two might be having a tryst together.

    • BB says:

      I think she’s too snob for him, Nicole Beharie seems to be a nicer woman.. I wonder what Nicole does at this moment, as she does not seem to be with him, nobody speaks about her

  31. Mazunte says:

    Heavens! Fassbender and Gosling in the same movie!!! That’s too much hotness in one movie! I hope Malick realizes how amazing is to have these two in a movie and do not cut any of them out. Rooney Mara is there too. I find her the most interesting actress of her generation… pretty and edgy. I will watch this. And of course, the amazing Cate. Natalie… I neither dislike her nor like her too much. She is just okay. The Professional is still my favorite movie with her.

  32. darth says:

    Fassbender is looking really good these days with the short hair and face stubble, and he’s not my usual type.
    Portman is such a groupie. She always seems to latch onto the new big actor of the moment.
    I’d like to write to whoever cast this movie and let them know that they lost my $10 by including Ryan Gossling. He has ruined every single movie I have had the misfortune of accidentally catching him in, with that condescending, in love with himself expression that seems to be permanently glued to his annoying face. Does not deserve to share a screen with a talented (and HUMBLE) guy like Fassbender.

    • Mazunte says:

      You’re joking right!? I think Gosling was definitely what made some of the movies he was in more interesting… Drive, Blue Valentine (and Michelle, of course), Half Nelson, Lars… I don’t care about his “in love with himself expression”, all these movie wouldn’t be the same with another actor. The same way Shame, Hunger and even A Dangerous Method wouldn’t be the same without Fassbender. They are both very good.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I agree with you, Mazunte. To me, both these actors turn in very different, but equally stellar performances in almost everything they do.

        @ Darth-You shouldn’t let your hatred of Ryan Gosling prevent you from seeing what could be a great movie. He might not even be in that many scenes-keep an open mind or you might miss out on something amazing 😉

      • darth says:

        Guess I’m alone in this lol (surprisingly), but I’m glad you guys like him and all. He just irks me. In addition to his smug expression, I’m really annoyed by his fake NY-ish accent that he seems to turn on and off, even in mid-sentence. An accent that he himself has admitted is fake and modeled after Marlon Brando because he thinks his own Canadian accent “isn’t tough enough”. Sorry, but I just feel like his ego and facade are always at the forefront of his performances, and maybe he’d be a better and more tolerable actor if he was more comfortable in his own skin and didn’t feel the need to prove how “cool” he is all the time.
        Contrast that with Fassbender who is so amazing in his roles because there is no pretense there, and he’s willing to strip down and be soft and vulnerable and whatever is needed for the role.
        Fassbender feels like more of a true actor to me, and Gosling seems like more of a celebrity who makes movies.

    • Mazunte says:

      I can’t compare Gosling and Fassbender. I love the work of both, but they are very different.

      I don’t agree with you when you say Gosling’s ego and facade are always at the forefront of his performances. Have you watched this scene? I think Gosling looks pretty soft and vulnerable here, as he looked in Lars and the Real Girl, Blue Valentine, or even in The Believer.


      Gosling does pass the image of a bit insecure guy, but for me that doesn’t affect his performances, on the contrary.

      And BTW, a remix of the song Lose your Soul by Gosling’s band. So sexy!


  33. darth says:

    P.S. nice to see that iguana man is getting some work. Haven’t seen him since his Maury Povich appearance in the mid 90’s.

  34. MST says:

    I don’t see the fuss about Fassbinder. He looks like alot of thin pasty white males I see walking around. He’s not even 35 and it looks like his hair is thinning.

    As for Portman, meh, she reminds me of the rich girls from Long Island I see when I’m around the U.Penn campus, and that is not a compliment.

    Ryan Gosling just looks somewhat goofy to me.

    • Mystic says:

      Dont you think you are being racist commenting on a guy’s skin color? You can’t do that to a black uh so why is it allowed against a white guy? You’re a racist.

      • MST says:

        Well, perhaps I chose the wrong wording. Those Anglo-Irish types just aren’t my style. My husband of twenty years was white, and I have two biracial kids, so I hardly think I am racist!

  35. LucyOriginal says:

    Gossbender is my new favorite word, :).

  36. Christa says:

    Interesting. First photos with Gosling and now with Portman. I’ll be seeing this movie. They both look gorgeous. Natalie is getting some serious hate though. I’ll admit she bores me as a person a bit but I always thought she was a great actress. Black Swan was intense and so was she 🙂

  37. bigt says:

    Like Natalies’ trashy blonde look here. Think she is beautiful. Michael eh..Doesn’t do it for me…waaay too skinny, tiny legs, no butt.

  38. MsJAPrufrock says:

    Malick is doing a bang-up job at confusing most of us fans. Malick used to average a film every ten years, so when one does come out, it’s a major event. But now he’s shooting 3 films back to back with so many people, I’m not sure who’s in what film, nor do I care anymore. I’m not keen on Brad Pitt or Ben Affleck as leads, but Christian Bale, Fassbender and Gosling can act.
