Unfortunately for the Fassloonies, the headlines yesterday were not about our love, Michael Fassbender. Fassy appeared on Friday night’s Graham Norton Show, only no one was talking about his appearance. Everybody was too busy talking about Mark Wahlberg and to a lesser degree, Sarah Silverman. All three (plus singer Laura Mvula) were featured on Norton’s Friday show, and Twitter exploded in the UK during and after the show. It was all about how Mark seemed extra-friendly with Sarah Silverman, and how he also seemed like he was drunk or high (or both). I’m including the whole episode (it’s split into three parts):
I agree that Mark acted like he was drunk or high or something. I think he pretty much admits that when he comes out too, that Norton’s green room is basically an open bar in which guests are encouraged to drink heavily. It wouldn’t be the first talk show where guests are kept toasty. I’ll also admit that Mark was kind of funny and he made me laugh several times. Yes, he was rude at a few points (especially when poor Fassy was trying to tell a James McAvoy story), but he was also so rude that it was kind of hilarious. And this is honest the God the most I’ve ever liked Sarah Silverman. She was really cracking me up here, and she rarely makes me laugh.
I don’t even think Fassy had anything to promote, right? He wasn’t there pushing any particular project or film or anything. I think he just came to hang out. And yes, he was totally making eyes at Laura Mvula. I wanted to yell at her and tell her to keep her hands off my man, but it’s not her fault. Bless his Irish heart, Fassbender just has such a thing for beautiful black women. He looked like he could eat her up. *sigh*
