Will Alicia Vikander dump Michael Fassbender because he parties too hard?

As previewed yesterday, Star Magazine claims this week that Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander may be over. Sort of. Star will only go so far as to say that they are “on the rocks” because Fassy is a bit of a hard-partying bro. From what I know of Fassy, he does like to drink and party and enjoy himself, but is his lifestyle just one party after another? Surely he knuckles down for hard work at least half the time?

While reports suggest that Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander’s relationship is on the rocks because of conflicting work commitments, Star has learned the real reason: Alicia, 26, is fed up with her boyfriend’s nonstop partying.

The ‘Light Between Oceans’ costars fell in love last year on the Australian set of their upcoming drama, but according to sources, once cameras stopped rolling, Michael started to let loose.

“Alicia knows Michael likes to have his fun, but she had no idea just how much,” says an insider. “With Michael, life is basically a 24-hour free-for-all. He’s constantly boozing, smoking cigarettes, hopping from one party to the next. He says he’s just having fun, but Alicia’s getting bored with it.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

If Alicia is getting “bored” with it, I wouldn’t blame her. Fassy is 38 years old – he’s a little long in the shark-tooth to still have this college-like lifestyle. For what it’s worth, Gossip Cop spoke to a “source close to Vikander” who claims that Star’s story is “inaccurate.” I’m sure there will be some stans claiming that Fassy and Alicia are joined at the hip and they’re perfect and in love and everything is beautiful too. Just my opinion: they’ll stay together (barely) throughout the fall, with Alicia showing up for many of Fassy’s events and Fassy showing up for none of her events. Then it will be over early next year.

This teaser image of Fassy in Assassins Creed dropped yesterday. Maybe gamers will be super-excited, but I really don’t get why Fassy feels so strongly about this.

    She looks like a pretty Pippa Middleton. He is so overrated.

    • seesittellsit says:

      +1,000 – especially re the overrated Fassy. I’ve never even thought he was that attractive and he’s a good actor but he’s not the craft’s alpha and omega. Not only that, but from the look of these two together, one strongly suspects invisible puppet strings above their heads. They’ve never looked like a couple in love. They make Cumberbatch and Hunter look like the star-crossed R&J.

      • Chuchu says:

        You need to be in major love to date someone? They just can’t date because teyou enjoy each others company? Or just great shagging?

      • seesittellsit says:

        @Chuchu – they’re alleged to be a couple, not just “dating”. Half the time she looks like she’d like to be anywhere but next to him – she actually doesn’t look much like she enjoys his company. And he’s alleged to be far more interested in someone else (the someone being M. Cotillard) – she’s Weinstein’s new B List protogee. You know what that means . . .

      • s says:

        And allegedly all this is just some pretense of knowledge that spilled over from the Cumberbatch posts.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        I’m hear to say I think Fassy is a terrific actor… he broke my heart and stained my panties in Shame. Damn him. Looking forward to MacBeth and Jobs!!

    • Bree says:

      @s Yep or seesittellsit is a delusional Cotillard stan. I guess it’s the latter. 😉

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Lol +1 PhD…that was my very thought, too!

  2. TheOtherMaria says:

    She’ll dump him when their movie flops, hopefully if we’re lucky, she’ll dump that fake tan in a bottle she seems so fond of too.

    • Mrs Darcy says:

      Ah, so it’s fake tan!
      I always wondered that for a Swede, she is very tanned always!

      • Amelia says:

        So there *is* hope!
        All my family’s from Norway and Demmark and my skin’s verging on translucent.
        I went to see The Man From UNCLE yesterday and I thought her skin tone looking lovely and glowy.

      • ell says:

        All my family’s from Norway and Demmark and my skin’s verging on translucent.” you do realise that’s not how genetic works, right? just sayin’. there are tons of dark skinned danish people.

      • Amelia says:

        I’m aware, Ell. I’m just mentioning that I and my family follow the stereotypical Scandinavian phenotype with Type 1 skin tones.
        Obviously there’s a huge amount of genetic variation across Europe, but my family were originally from the very North of Norway where you don’t get much UV exposure.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        I’m not a Swede, I’m Danish-Norwegian, and the Norwegians are from the far north. Most of my Norwegian family members are very swarthy: ruddy skinned, black haired and brown eyed. I’m blonde haired and blue eyed, but my skin tans extremely easily. I know lots of Scandinavians who look fair when they are untanned, but who tan at the drop of the hat, so I honestly have never associated pale skin with people from that area!

      • Amelia says:

        Do you want to swap skin tones, Tiny Martian? :p
        That’s strange – we’re (mostly) from Trondheim and my G’ma likes to joke that we have snow in our skin! It’s a funny old world

      • Hannah says:

        It’s multi cultured there as much elsewhere in Europe
        My mums from Norway and I have mixed raced cousins from Oslo. Swedish and Norwegian people in My generation doesnt all look blonde and fair skinned. That is a stereotypical view of the past ( even back then it wasn’t accurate as there are many dark haired olive skinned people especially in coastal cities where the port would have brought in ships from the south of Europe for 100s of years).
        The most famous Scandinavian model of all time is part Latin American ( Helena Christensen).
        I think Americans expect every Scandinavian to look like skarsgaard.

    • ican'tsnap says:

      That’s just her complexion – check out her early films. She may sometimes have a bit of tan from vacations on top of it.

      • hmph says:

        She has ashkenazi/jewish ancestry (like Noomi Rapace), hence her more swarthy complexion but the tan in the pic is not natural, it looks orange.

  3. petitehirondelle says:

    I have seen pictures of him and he looks realy older now…. the smoking and partying lifestyle may be the reason

  4. Alex says:

    Isn’t it obvious that it’s a PR relationship? She wants to become a Hollywood star so bad that I don’t think she minds his behaviour. They will stay together until their movie is premiered and then it’ll be over.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I don’t think it’s PR since they’ve made the effort over the past year to fly around the world to be together, going to each other’s personal events, vacationing together, spending time with family and friends etc.

      But I didn’t expect it to last longer than LbtW promotions / Oscar season. He seems like a man-child and I don’t see Alicia putting up with that long-term.

    • Simone says:

      Yes!! PR relationship !!! There is also a blind gossip about them ;-p

    • Lori says:

      I do believe its a PR generated relationship because “they” don’t want Fassbender in a interracial relationship during award season. There I said it!

    • Mia4S says:

      So “they” got him into a PR relationship for awards season before he had even signed on for Steve Jobs or there was any clue when MacBeth would be released? Wow this psychic realness! 😉 Do they know lotto numbers? I love this!

      Out of curiosity after yesterday I did poke around the tumblr-ish sites and read some of the hilarious outrage that this girl doesn’t match the, appearance shall we say, of his last few public relationships. Wow, I wish I hadn’t. Does Fassy have a type? Yes…female. Get a grip ladies. Will they last? Of course not, it’s Fassy. But seriously, get a grip.

      • Filly says:

        Stop making sense!

      • I Choose Me says:

        Right? I really don’t get where the notion this is a PR relationship is coming from. I love me some Fassy but I actually ‘gasp’ think they look cute together. And I kinda love that he’s not subscribing to the narrative that people have outlined for him.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Good points, Mia4S. I like them as a couple, but not optimistic it will last though. I was hoping they’d make it through awards season ’cause I like seeing them together.

      • Addison says:

        I love how the commenters are speaking as if they actually know any of these people. As if they are actually around them all the time and can speak from first hand knowledge.

        The only thing that can actually be said about him and is true is that he tends to gravitate towards women of African descent as most of the women he has dated are. But it’s hilarious that just because Alicia is not, it’s got to be a PR move.

        I really think as a culture Hollywood has mostly moved away from such things. And Michael is not Hollywood at all. So…

        I think people should go by what the subjects say in their interviews. And yes everyone is going to only say things that make them look the best. Unless you are Trump. Ha, ha.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        Addison, you do realize you’re on a GOSSIP site, right??

    • Original T.C. says:

      “Isn’t it obvious that it’s a PR relationship?”

      Hmm no it’s not obvious, the woman basically hits almost all points of Fassy’s past girlfriends: petite, dark hair, non-fair skinned and worked in a movie with him. Unless all his other relationships were also for PR? I don’t understand why his relationship can’t be real because Alicia lacks any obvious traces of African ancestors. If you really think men will ONLY date a specific type all the time then you haven’t spent enough time around single men. Same applies to women.

      We have our types but may times fall for someone who looks a bit different from our ex’s. I think DiCarpio is one of the few men who orders up…oops I mean dates replicas of his ex-girlfriend. I’m betting the woman he ultimately picks as a life partner will not look like the blonde replaceable models.

      Besides old men in the academy are jealous of young actors with their pretty blond wives/girlfriends. Fassy will probably stand a better chance of being nominated and winning if he was with a woman of color. The old guys then won’t think they have to compete with him. Right?

      • Serf says:

        He also says he only dates women with personality who know what they want. perhaps she has a strong sassy interior but she seems like bland basic pretty face to me. no way the academy would prefer him Oscar because he is with WoC. if it matters to them then it will be for the negative.

        many of this white actors date WoC atleast once but very very few of them marry WoC or even date them very publicly. thats why I was proud of Clooney although Amal should be with a real global power player not aging white playboy who makes floppy films.

      • Original T.C. says:

        “no way the academy would prefer him Oscar because he is with WoC. if it matters to them then it will be for the negative.”

        So why doesn’t Leo have an award yet since he’s usually with a tall pretty blonde girlfriend? And why would Fassy choose a non-fair skin brunette for his Oscar PR instead of a tall, leggy blonde that you think the academy will like better?

        Also many actors before they are famous date regular people but after fame they stick to their social group. How many high paying or famous Black actresses are running around Hollywood? How many Black models? That’s the problem with these conspiracy theories, they aren’t fully thought out. But it seems to be easier for some people to believe Fassy is only with her for this long because Weinstein has a stalker sharp shooter with a gun aimed at Fassy’s head 24/7. And no rumours that he has any WOC side-pieces so I guess he has been going without sex for one year. Fassy? LOL.

      • Kiki says:

        What sass. Is girl has no personality at all. I like her sweet demeanor but sassy, no. JLaw is sassy, she is just not warm, but polite.

  5. JoJo says:

    Fassy is one of my faves. I’ll see anything with him in it! But he’s Irish. He might never stop drinking and smoking, eric. It’s pretty hard-wired into their culture. I’m waiting to see him with someone who really interests him intellectually, at least more on an adult level, someone he really thinks about settling down with. Alicia is of course beautiful, but she seriously looks she’s about 12, maybe 16 tops, and I’m not exaggerating. I think she looks way too young for him.

    • Mia4S says:

      She looks young in photos but I didn’t really find that was the case onscreen. Man From UNCLE (those clothes!! I want them!!) she pretty much looked her mid-20s age.

    • kay says:

      Or he isn’t the type to settle down. I don’t see him as some intellectual type who cares for deep conversations with his girlfriend. He’s all about the booze, partying and sex.

      • Wonderbunny says:

        I kind of fancy him and think he would probably be all about passionate sex, drinking and partying. A great holiday romance! I also think he’s a great actor. I just also don’t see him as some sort of intellectual type. I think he would probably be impressed with an intellectual woman and would take on the challenge, but I don’t think he requires stimulating conversation. Stimulation yes, but not in the form of deep thinking.

        And there’s nothing wrong with that.

    • Lotta says:

      So two adults can’t date because one of them happens to look younger then her age?

      • Isadora says:

        Sounds legit, right? smh

        All these reasons people state against this relationship: she looks too young, she’s too white, she’s too ambitious…

  6. GlimmerBunny says:

    I can’t believe people here don’t think she’s beautiful. Look at that last picture in the patterned dress, how is she not a stunning young woman?

    • TheOtherMaria says:

      Stunning, no…..

      Uniquely featured, definitely (there’s no shade in my saying this, I swear). She’s pretty plain BUT does have a look that is different from most actresses, I can concede that much.

    • Allie says:

      I defintely find her beautiful. But she doesn’t grab my attention. If I saw her on the streets, I wouldn’t look twice or wish I looked like that. There are tons of beautiful women in the world, but she doesn’t have that “it” factor for me. Just my opinion.

    • amanda says:

      She looks quite average to me. Pretty yes, but she would blend in with your typical mall girl.

      • Skyblue says:

        I think she’s lovely. She would stand out at our local mall as it is all but closed except for older people walking laps. 😜

    • Nessa says:

      I think she is stunningly beautiful. She seems a little bland, and she sometimes seems lifeless in her pictures. But she is absolutely gorgeous.

    • kellybean says:

      I have never seen her before but she has the most gorgeous, flawless complexion in these pictures.

      • Amelia says:

        Unbelievably envious of her gorgeous complexion – she’s got that healthy, dewy glow that really highlights her features.
        I think she’s one of those people who – very strangely – looks better in close-ups because of her delicate features.

    • Margareth says:

      She’s stunning, talented and intelligent (in all the interviews with her I saw or read she comes across as very intelligent and educated), but some desperate females can’t stand the idea that their beloved “Fassy” can like her. I don’t understand the Fassbender-mania. If anything, I think that it’s her who can do better.

      • renee says:

        Yes, her problem is all Fassbender fans. That’s why she’s been called prickly and the Thinking Man’s Blake Lively by reputable magazines.

      • ell says:

        who called her prickly? i remember the thinking man blake lively’s interview (lmao btw, I felt for her that interview was not the best), but not the prickly comment.

      • renee says:

        Prickly is just the word I used. The actual quote is “Ms. Vikander’s restrained warmth can freeze over in a nanosecond…” and then W called her “polite but not warm”

      • lurker says:

        I can’t take anyone seriously who uses “females” as a noun for women.

    • ichsi says:

      Exactly what I thought when I saw that pic. She’s stunning but very young looking. She’s only three months younger than I am but could totally pass as 16. He on the other hand could pass for 50 Lol! (Creeeepeeee)

      There are some rumours floating around that she has a nasty, stuck-up personality but I can’t really tell if there’s any truth in them or if people are just jealous. Anyway, Fassbender is well known for partying hard, she knew what she was getting into, so I doubt that this is the reason if they’re really splitting up.

    • ell says:

      i think she’s average pretty, mostly because there’s nothing that really stands out in her beauty. but hey, it’s a question of taste.

      • Lola says:

        For me, there are a ton of latina women that have a very similar look, if not the same, so to say that she is a beauty, come visit us and then talk.
        Plus, I do think her skin tone is self tanning. I had no idea who she was, so I googled her, and the early pictures of her are Not with a tan, nor skin tone like she has now. The woman is white, not olive skin.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I think she is and her skin is gorgeous. I enjoyed her in The Royal Affair and Ex Machina. Looking forward to The Danish Girl.

      • Lindsey says:

        YES! I loved her in both of those movies and Mads Mikkelson too, in The Royal Affiar. . . . mmm

    • Tiny Martian says:

      I agree. I find her to be a breathtaking, natural beauty. Something we don’t see a lot of in Hollywood these days with all of the plastic surgery and heavy makeup!

    • Naddie says:

      I’m quite the opposite, I can’t believe someone thinks she’s beyond the average pretty. She is physically lovely, and her natural looks are more than welcome in the plastic beauty standards of nowadays, but gourgeous she’s not.

    • Carol says:

      I couldn’t agree more. I think she’s gorgeous and has the most fantastic non-conservative style.

    • OhDear says:

      Different strokes for different folks, I guess (this was not meant to sound dirty, lol).

    • Kate says:

      She doesn’t have exaggeratedly beautiful features that stand out on magazines like an Angelina Jolie or Scarlett Johanssen (lips) or Keira Knightley (cheekbones), but she is absolutely stunning in a way that is jaw-dropping in real life.

      Hugh Grant is one of the most cutting, difficult to impress people in this business and rarely praises effusively. He said she has the kind of beauty that you rarely see in this industry today & that she reminds him of Julie Christie.

    • EN says:

      I think she is stunning but the standards of beauty are different and that is why there is no agreement on Alicia.
      Even between Eastern Europeans/ Northern Europeans/ Southern Europeans/ Americans the standards of beauty are slightly different and are influenced by the look of the people around them. One thing that is considered exotic would be common place elsewhere, like cheekbones.
      Or on the opposite side some people are more accepting of the faces with very prominent jaws and heavy set features because this is the type where they live.

    • danielle says:

      I think she is pretty, but her face is not beautiful, I don’t like her nose and her mouth, but her skin tone is gorgeous! Plus I like her voice. And well, she has a nice, fit body, but she is quite petite.

    • A. Key says:

      I see prettier women than her every day, honestly, what is it with this chick that attracts people??

      • Lexie says:

        @A. Key: I think what people see is a prettier version of themselves, she’s an accessible kind of pretty. Most people are never going to look like Angelina Jolie no matter what they do (unless you’re Megan Fox), but with hair and make-up many could get close to this girl. I honestly think a lot of it is that, because she’s really not all that stunning. Pretty or cute at best.

  7. Kiki says:

    I am her to only say nice things about Alicia Vikander, is that she should cut ties with Louie Vitton and start a contract with Christian Dior, she will be perfect.

    • Renee says:

      Those Louis Vuitton “designs” are awful on everybody. She needs to get as many purses and luggage as possible and move on.

  8. Dash says:

    I think she is beautiful. She also desperately wants to be famous. She needs to date a more mainstream actor, Fassbender has critical acclaim but won’t get her the name recognition she’s craving.

    • Ronda says:

      or you know work hard herself.

      • Wonderbunny says:

        She could work hard as an actress and be really good at what she does, but that would still not guarantee fame. Fame follows drama and sex and scandals and big personalities, not good work ethic.

  9. mom2two says:

    I thought the one thing people could agree on about Fassbender is that he likes a good party and it seems unlikely that is going to change. I don’t find him attractive but I think he’s a fantastic actor. I don’t think he looks a thing like Steve Jobs but I am very curious to see his performance in that movie. And his Hamlet looks good.

    She’s pretty. I’ve not seen any of her work, so I cannot comment on that. But if she dumped him for his partying ways, she went into that relationship with her eyes closed.

  10. PHD Gossip says:

    She should date Tom Cruise if she really wants to be famous.

  11. Chinoiserie says:

    She is beautiful but does she have to be the most most gorgeous person ever to date famous actors and star in films? Sometimes I feel like people think you do not deserve to be a star unless you are completely perfect, at least if you are woman.

    • cici says:

      Agree. Unfortunately I see comments all the time with people saying how someone isn’t gorgeous enough to deserve to be a movie star.

      Rough looking men get leading roles all the time, I don’t get why so many people demand actresses to look like supermodels.

      • petitehirondelle says:

        I don’t think so. Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, … and some others realy loved actresses are not supermodels and have big success because of their charisma and talent and the fact they have that something. Even JLaw is not a supermodel

    • Naddie says:

      I think the problem is that she’s being much more about image than work. I’m not saying it’s her fault, maybe we’re just clueless in this site, but she haven’t delivered great performances to justify the hype around her, so people (me included) try to find anything special about her. This and the Fassbender fans (me not included).

      • Bree says:

        I thought she was terrific in Ex Machina and Testament of Youth.

      • ican'tsnap says:

        She’s had some misses (U.N.C.L.E.) but she’s turned in some good performances – that’s why she is where she is. A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina marked a turning point and got her into all of these bigger films.

        Her work is why all the hype – she’s in something like 7 films this year and, from what I can tell, nearly all of her public appearances have been for her premieres/promotion. If that isn’t someone who’s all about the work, I don’t know what is.

    • A. Key says:

      She doesn’t deserve to be a star because she lacks the charisma and talent, not because she lacks the looks.

      I find J. Lawrence average looking but her character and personality make her a star.

  12. Coco says:

    I love the dress she is wearing in that last picture

  13. s says:

    Alicia has an exceptional screen presence. Fassbender is probably the best actor of his generation. Anyone who’s half inclined to believe a Star Mag story is an idiot. Random, but that’s all I got.

  14. Esteph says:

    That’s ok Alicia, if you’re not into his college-bro lifestyle, there is always someone else willing to take your place.

  15. AG-UK says:

    I don’t believe Star but do I believe they will make it for the long run no. She is very pretty looks v young has great skin/ colouring. I have only see Ex Machina which was good but will give Man from UNCLE a miss.

  16. Andrea says:

    He has only been in a 2 year relationship once. At 38, honestly ladies would you think a man like that would last with you?

    • Kiki says:

      Honestly @Andrea, I don’t know what to think at this point. Although Star magazine say a lot of crap of the years and years, but if many more sources says a lot about their relationship, all I can say is 20 french men can’t be wrong. Do I think this will last, and honestly I say no, because of their work schedules. As for MF partying and getting drunk, like I said before the same thing, 20 Frenchmen can’t be wrong as well. What I do think about AV is that she deserves a lot better than this and using Instagram or Harvey Weinsten is not cutting it. She needs to be humble and modest so she can be relatable to the public. And I know I will get a lot of flack from a lot of people. I don’t belI ever that MF is not a womanizer, I believe he is just like George Clooney, he hasn’t found his match. Didn’t he said that he likes a feisty woman? or so he says!

    • EN says:

      I keep saying this about Hiddles and keep getting stuff thrown at me for it. But yeah, Fassbender is not a long term partner material. May be by the time he is 75, if he lives that long.
      But I am sure most have experience the attraction to someone who is not a good prospect, but what can you do. Alicia is young, she can still have some fun.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        EN, I’m on every Hiddles post and no one is saying he’s long-term relationship material. They say that on Tumblr and Twitter possibly, but not the regulars on CB, so I don’t know where you’re getting that notion. A few have said he *should* settle down, but he’s said and done nothing to indicate that he’s headed in that direction. He seems more of a casual dater, based on his past history and his obvious career ambition.

      • EN says:

        @ Nutballs, I said something about Hiddles getting too old for his hot bachelor persona and it is no longer cute and that it is strange at his age to not have any serious relationships under the belt. I am starting to get Clooney vibe from him and I don’t like it. Well, I got some heat for saying that. People were saying that he is not that old, and that there is no age by which people should settle down and have stable relationships.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        EN, some of us who are older than Hiddles don’t expect him to get serious at 34 or at this point in his life/career. That’s what people took issue with. We’re not equating him with 54YO Clooney.

        Both Fassy and Hiddles leave me little reason to think their relationships would last longer than a year, but I’d attribute that to different factors — Fassy due to his immaturity and Tom due to his career ambition.

  17. TreadStyle says:

    Omg yes her skin. Every time I see a close up of her face I’m like I want to know what skin products and make up she uses! She always has a glow without looking oily or fake. I guess that’s why she never needs much makeup. But how do you get the glowing skin?! Mine is so opposite.

  18. Lea says:

    She is bland

  19. perplexed says:

    Her face seems to change radically from photo to photo. In these photos she looks quite pretty. There are others where she looks different.

    She could play Pippa Middleton in a movie about Kate and William (not that I think anyone is dying to see that movie).

  20. Kate says:

    Honestly, I haven’t seen much evidence at all the past year that Fassbender’s even been a “hard partier”. He used to be spotted at bars all over East London and he went out to clubs all the time in Montreal while filming Days of Future Past in 2013, but there’s literally been NONE of that this year. Most of the non-work “sightings” of him I’ve seen have been when he’s out to restaurants by himself or with Alicia or going to work-outs/the gym.

      Yeah you don’t get many bar sightings of Fassy these days. Not for the past year at least. He’s spotted at yoga studios or pool halls with his friends but because he used to I guess that means that will always be the thing that defines him for gossip people. People’s interests never change you know. They stay the same forever and ever. Also someone should tell Michael and Alicia that a PR couple is supposed to want publicity as opposed to what they’re doing by laying low and trying to spend time together without cameras.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        THIS!! I don’t know why people think they are a PR couple… they should be getting papped more and doing more red carpets together instead of normal, couple things like going to music festivals and visiting her friends/family in Sweden. Sheesh.

      • Labelle says:

        @NUTBALLS +1,000

      • Kiki says:

        I don’t think you understand what pr means. Anyone can be their own pr. When people go to festivalsm concerts or any event they went to as a normal couple but you are a celebrity, chances are you will be taken a picture. Was Suki Waterhouse and Bradley Cooper doing normal things and pictures were taken of them, was that called or?

      • NUTBALLS says:

        kiki, I didn’t think BCoop and Suki were a PR couple. There’s a difference between non-couples looking/acting like a couple for PR (PR couple) and using a real, bona fide relationship for PR purposes. I’m don’t even put Fassy & Alicia in the second camp since they seem to keep their relationship more private.

      • Kiki says:

        @Nutball. Um, so the kissing in the New York City is just a random spur of the moment, is just a Norma thing compare to reading a book and speaking french to your girlfriend in the Londan park is any different. Sure they are very private couple.

    I think they know exactly what they wanna get from each other. I don’t buy the idea that Fassy is down-to-earth-kind-of-guy-and-low-key-one… He wants fame, she wants fame. Both play the Hollywood game, they need pay the bills… The rest is bulls/it. Social media is a good tool for it. Does anyone have already heard the word NETWORK? Poor them…

  22. pepsicola says:

    it may not be a total pr relationship, both were spotted at a wedding in England a few weeks back. Fassbender was good friends with the bride and both posed for photos with guests there.

  23. lunchcoma says:

    She’ll dump him when her movies are released this year and her profile increases and/or when she finds another, better-known famous person to date. Alternately, I think she’d end things if he was caught publicly with another woman.

    It’s not so much that I think this relationship is pure PR. I do think they probably genuinely like and are attracted to each other. I just think they’re both fairly practical about this sort of thing and that she’s aware dating someone better-known will get her name out there and that he’s aware that having an official, tolerant girlfriend gives him some cover from the stories that he’s a playboy.

    • Labelle says:

      Are they an official couple though? I get what you mean but they’re almost invisible as far as gossip goes,alone or together. I don’t know if it makes any difference.

    Haven’t set foot in here in a while, and what I find interesting is that apparently her posts – a total unknown, that wanted to be more known- it’s getting MORE commemts on the articles about her in comparison to her boyfriend! Ahhhh, love…. LOL! I guess she won …

    • Filly says:

      Women who talk about other women! Strange!!!!

      • Lola says:

        @Filly and @Angela: They say there is no such thing as bad publicity … can’t say that I agree with the statement fully though … but, regardless if it’s women talking about women, etc. she is getting more posts on her articles than he is … right now I count 113 for her, and on the last article about him barely hitting the 60 mark post, for an actor that was talked about in this site ages before she was in the picture. So, I guess drinking the Kool Aid of the publicity that started with her is working for her.
        @Original T.C.: Understand your comment, I just have not noticed because tbh I am tired of the divorce drama, the Douggar Family drama (?sp) drama, the actress (blocked her name from my head) and her custody battle drama … So I honestly don’t know. I am just making a comment about observation, how long ago was it … 3 months ago, maybe more, very few people had any clue on who she was, regardless whether positive or negative comments are made, people are talking about her. For me, the publicity Kool Aid was drank by the consumer.

    • Angela says:

      @No if the comments are mostly negative (as is her case)

    • Original T.C. says:

      Not saying they are on the same level but this too happens with posts on Ben Afflect vs Afflect’s nanny. Women love talking about other women so even though people say Affleck has equal blame, her posts have 3 times the amount of comments and vitriol. Same with Jennifer Garner vs. Affleck.

  25. Filly says:

    Does he works? Ahahaha!!No,because his filmography tells another story. The party animal reputation is a cliché at this point.

  26. French Cruller says:

    LMAO at people thinking her dewy, glowy, tanned complexion is real. People LOVE believing lies. Her complexion you’re all so enamoured with comes in a bottle. You’ll never see her real complexion again. She knew what Fassbender likes and she went and got her some of it. Keep believing otherwise if it makes you feel better.

  27. Wolf says:

    Having played AC, casting Fassbender in this role is brilliant.

  28. Sara says:

    No wonder he looks so old for 38.
