Alicia Vikander on her New Year’s festivities: ‘I think I kissed my boyfriend’


I’ve finally nailed down what this Alicia Vikander-Michael Fassbender situation reminds me of: Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard. Remember when they were a couple? Alex never said one word about her publicly, but The Bos made it her job to let everyone know that they were together and it was amazing, all the while playing the “privacy” card. Alicia has been playing a strikingly similar game with the media. Fassy never says one word to or about her in public, but Alicia spends so much time casually discussing him or talking about how she would never talk about her boyfriend, or going off the record to confirm that they’re still dating, or getting her publicist to drop a story into Page Six about their holiday plans. You get the picture.

As it turns out, Vikander was in rare form at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. While Vikander and Fassbender avoided being photographed together the entire night, Alicia talked about him to multiple outlets. This is how Deadline reported it: “Vikander told us she and Fassbender wrote their acceptance speeches while playing Yahtzee on the plane ride into the desert.” Are you rolling your eyes? Save it for this piece from E! News:

Alicia Vikander isn’t usually one to kiss and tell. E! News’ Marc Malkin caught up with The Danish Girl actress on the red carpet at the Palm Springs International Film Festival over the weekend and couldn’t help but inquire about her New Year’s Eve festivities. According to the Golden Globe- and SAG-nominated actress, she enjoyed a low-key night in with her “casual” yet confirmed boyfriend, actor Michael Fassbender.

“It was not a very, very late night because I had to fly here, but we had a grill going, cooked some pasta, made a good dinner, watched some fireworks,” she told us. “We counted down until midnight. It was great!”

Pasta and fireworks? Sounds like the perfect pairing to kick of the New Year, if you ask us. And speaking of perfect pairings, we couldn’t help but ask the actress whom she kissed at the stroke of midnight. “I think I kissed my boyfriend,” Vikander said nonchalantly.

“It’s all about love, starting the New Year,” Vikander told E! News.

[From E! News]

For the love of all that is holy. I know I’ll be accused of just hating on any and every Fassbender Girlfriend, but for the record, I really loved him with Nicole Beharie. I even liked him with Zoe Kravitz during the tail end of their on-and-off thing. It’s Alicia that annoys me. She gives me Bosworth Vibes. Usually this is the stage of Fassbender’s relationships where things start winding down and he stops caring, but Vikander is in it ‘til the bitter end.

    Eye roll… She’s really annoying isn’t she? And I was rooting for her months ago before she started giving these interviews.

    • Sarah says:

      Haha I misread your comment as “I’d been rooting her”…. we use that word differently in Australia 🙂

  2. Tiffany says:

    Yes, she kissed her boyfriend but did she kiss Michael. Jeez.

  3. Pri says:

    Meh, I’ve seen worse fame-whoring.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Yeah, it hasn’t gotten to the point of annoying me either. *shrug*

      I will concede her disingenuity as Karen noted below, but since I have enjoyed her work and her interviews so far (U.N.C.L.E excepted), I can overlook it.

      I do hope she doesn’t win anything major this year, only because there’s so many vets and more deserving actresses who should be recognized. She’ll should have her turn after she’s been around a little longer.

  4. that time i didn't care says:

    Man, why is she so invested in promoting this relationship? I don’t think anyone really cares, so why is she mentioning him every 5 seconds? Genuinely curious b/c I don’t get it.

    • anniefannie says:

      I think she’s sending signals to some of his formers to let them know she’s got a death
      grip him. I don’t envy him when
      he inevitably dumps her. She won’t go quietly😂

    • Original T.C. says:

      Well, wasn’t she asked? It doesn’t sound like she started the conversation, actresses get asked silly questions and actors not. The page six report was someone listening in on her private conversation.

      It’s like people go from dismissing her relationship to Fassy as a hookup, to calling it PR to saying she talks too much about it. From the start somebody people have hated this relationship because she is not of the same ethnic group as his other ex’s. Just like Goslings fans have had issues with Eva because she is a different ethnic group than his Caucasian ex’s. Both women easily vilified and the men just innocent bystanders of these seductresses.

      • alice says:

        I’m sure you’re really not that naive to believe that when a site like Page Six (or People mag or US weekly) reports something they aren’t PR driven mouth pieces. We all know what it means “sources” “pals” and non specified “friends”. Come on this is how they do it.

      • alice says:

        PS and you’re totally right about the fact that people won’t judge men as they do with women. I hate that they’re all there just like saying” oh snap, this girl just feel on my crotch”…Fassbender is as much calculated in his silence as Vikander is in her subtle manipulations

  5. Petitehirondelle says:

    It is the game no? I have a doubt that she was in it, now sure but it’ is funny, we have news thanks to her

  6. Karen says:

    She annoys me but I couldn’t put my finger on why. I think she’s talented, and I usually am so excited when fresh new talent gets recognition. But it’s what you said. She’s fake. Bosworth fake. I don’t talk about relationships, but let me talk about my BF…. I’m going to have 3 oscar cntenders, but I’m so shocked theyre nominated. I’m all for the hustle, but its not hustle if you can see the TRY.

  7. SBS says:

    I know I’ll be in the minority here but the fact that every piece of gossip/information we have on them comes from Alicia or her camp makes me kind of uncomfortable. Fassbender seems to always deflect questions.
    I realize it’s more likely for her to get asked, since she’s a woman, but she doesn’t have to provide any info just because reporters are nosy.

    • Lama Bean says:

      But she WANTS to provide this information. That’s the point of the story. If she didn’t want to talk about it, it would not be that difficult since we never have actually seen them together.

      • SBS says:

        Yeah, that’s what I’m getting at. I get the feeling she wants the info out there. While he won’t answer any questions.

      • Becky says:

        Exactly Lama Bean. She could answer no comment, or deflect like MF does. I don’t really know much about her except what I read on this site and she’s coming across as either thirsty or just naive in interviews.

        Plus what does “casual” yet confirmed mean? If shes confused that’s maybe why she keeps mentioning him.

    • Minxx says:

      Last time Fassbender was asked if he’s “in love” he replied “next question”. Guys get asked too but if someone wants to be private, it can be done.

  8. CornyBlue says:

    Micheal looked so good in Jobs like i was surprised by how hot he was. He looks washed up here.. he should hire those people from Jobs for red carpet.

  9. Tandy says:

    I saw a video of her saying that (“Ummm I think… I kissed my boyfried”) on the red carpet at PSIFF and my eyes rolled straight out of my head and out my front door. She is so ridiculous and the stench of desperation is only getting stronger.

    Btw, most people loved Fass/Beharie and Fass/Zoe. A lot people were legit disappointed when those two relationships ended, so yeah Alicia’s stans can stop trying to rewrite the history.

    • Minxx says:

      I thought he was really in love with Nicole Beharie, acted very differently around her. Lovely girl too.

      • Kiki says:

        That because he was in love with Nicole Beharie. I think it was long distance relationship or work got in the way. But i really love Michael with Nicole.

        And even though he is dating Swede with “olive skin” deep down I bet he wished that she is black. I still think Michael Fassbender want a black girlfriend / wife. And i have no problem with that. P. S it is just preferrence

      • But... says:

        But if he loved her so much why did it end? Rumor was he cheated on her. It’s been 3 yrs. If he loved her so much he would have gotten back with her or helped her make it work in the first place.

      • Dani says:

        @But… He could be in love with Nicole to this very day, but if Nicole isn’t in love with him and doesn’t want him back, it ain’t gonna happen. Relationships are a two way street (unless you’re Alicia Vikander, apparently).

        Conspiracy theory just for shits & giggles: what if… he IS still in love with Nicole and he’s just letting Vikander embarrass herself with all her thirsty mentioning of him every chance she gets just to make Nicole jealous? Lol, I don’t really believe that, but pettier things have happened…

    • Farhi says:

      I don’t know much about Beharie. But I like both Alicia and Zoe, and I think they are both too good for him. They guy is not interested in a relationship or commitment.
      I am not sorry he broke up with Zoe, I think she is better off without him. And the same with Alicia. The sooner they break up, the better. Less damage.

      • Minxx says:

        Seems like Fassbender and Zoe are good friends, so no damage done. I think they were casual and Zoe was cool with that. With Nicole he was open about her being his girlfriend, about missing her and sad when they parted – he was not hiding this relationship at all. With Alicia it’s something different and I don’t think she’s the one who will be damaged when this is said and done. She’s milking him every chance she gets and he starts to look like a fool.

      • CornyBlue says:

        Zoe is still very very good friends with the X Men gang. Specially Jen and Hoult. I wonder how they behave when Alicia is around.. but maybe it was not serious. Just a bit of wham bam thank you maam

  10. Kiki says:

    I take back every word i said about this girl. Now i really hate this girl. It led me to think, Michael Fassbender… What were you thinking when you get with “Happy Feet”?

    I am so fed up with them, and I don’t like this but i wish he breaks up with her SOON.

  11. Minxx says:

    LOL, Kaiser, thank you for not buying all this Alicia Vikander BS! Lainey just outdid herself promoting her and this showmance. Alicia reminds me a lot of Bosworth – same type of thirst.
    I actually watched this interview and she didn’t exactly say the NYE was with Fassbender. Also, funny how she said “I had to fly here”-as if he didn’t. Then she was asked if she partied with the crew of Bourne but she said, no thankfully she didn’t have to work – when the question who she kissed at midnight came up it was funny – seriously, she’s not such a great actress – see for yourself:

    I wonder who won at Jahtzee 😉

  12. Elle says:

    It’s the way she can’t seem to stop mentioning her ‘boyfriend’. I think she’s been donning some rose-colored glasses with this ‘relationship. He has not made one mention…..

  13. Minxx says:

    Maybe I’m not hearing it right but is she trying to sound British upper class? She’s Swedish, right?

    • ethel mertz says:

      Yes, she is Swedish and yes, for some bizarre and needless reason, she is desperate to sound upperclass British.

  14. anon says:

    It’s really, really silly of her and her PR to promote this relationship whereas Fassbender hasn’t even aknowledged that he’s in a relationship. She talks like “we did this, we did that”, so who are “WE” girl? People who only follow what the Fass say don’t even know they’re an item,maybe a fling or sth.

  15. georgia says:

    So this is going to be like when Ryan gosling was “running from Eva and their baby” and “unhappy” until he said her name in an interview and the Internet finally got it. It’s not real and she’s a desperate until HE says her name.

    • Peach says:

      EXACTLY Georgia!!!

      The narrative will be that Fassy’s desperate to be rid of this clingy fake gf until HE says something.

    • CornyBlue says:


    • tracking says:


    • Gina says:

      I remember when Eva Mendes got such grief for dating Ryan Gosling, like she was some bunny boiler looking to get knocked up.

      It’s the same as Jennifer Aniston, Sophie Hunter, Kate Middleton, Elsa Pataky, Amal Clooney, Amber Heard, Taylor Swift…

      Women are always portrayed as desperate, clingy and fame hungry. If they have more money than the guy, then they bought their own ring/are a sugar mama just being used. If they have less, they’re social climbing famewhores who are only using the poor innocent man.

      I’m not saying some don’t encourage the media, but so do their male counterparts and we hear sod all about that.

      I sometimes wonder what century we live in.

      • Wren33 says:


      • TreadStyle says:

        So true Gina.

      • Dani says:

        @Gina: “It’s the same as Jennifer Aniston, Sophie Hunter, Kate Middleton, Elsa Pataky, Amal Clooney, Amber Heard, Taylor Swift…

        Women are always portrayed as desperate, clingy and fame hungry.”

        Buuuuuuuttt… most of those women *are* desperate, clingy and/or fame hungry. There are plenty of women in relationships with famous men who are not “portrayed” as desperate, clingy and/or fame hungry the way these women are. Women aren’t ALWAYS portrayed that way.

    • Kitten says:

      Ain’t this the truth though?

    • Petitehirondelle says:

      Eva was realy private no?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      So true. Our uteruses make us hysterical, don’tcha know.

    • FF says:

      It does appear so.

      But hey, if we’re going to spin this narrative one more time, please add a Fassy b-plot. It needs one.

  16. Peach says:

    Right. I watched the youtube. Marc Malkin asked her what she did for New Years. She answered saying made dinner, watched some fireworks, NEVER said Michael’s name. Then he asked who she kissed at midnight and she said my bf and moved on. NEVER said his name. If she had refused to answer or said “NONE OF YOUR BUISNESS!” people would be calling her a stuck up b*tch. She can’t win. It’s not her fault she gets asked these kinds of questions and Michael doesn’t.

    I think what’s bothering people is these quotes confirm they spent NY’s together, flew in together (they were also seen at their hotel in Palm Springs) so they’re not broken up as many had hoped. They’ve been together well over a year now so it’s not just a fling. And Michael may not be talking about her but he’s sure looking happy these days.

    I don’t want to become her public defender or anything but it seems like there has been a never ending quest to find fault with her from the get go. I really feel she’ll become the next Sophie Hunter if her relationship with Michael continues.

    • SusanneToo says:

      +1. There are some serious Fassbender stans who come out on AV threads. It’s almost funny to see the frothing invective she provokes.

      • Minxx says:

        AND there are some serious AV stans who always come out to defend their precious snowflake :). It’s fun and that’s what Celebitchy is all about 🙂

      • SusanneToo says:

        AND the AV stans seldom get vicious about MF’s looks or talent. That’s the big difference.

    • SBS says:

      With all respect, he does get asked these questions too. He’s not campaigning as hard and not doing as many interviews, thus not as many questions. He usually deflects them or answer “next question” as someone mentioned up thread, for example when he was asked if he’s in love. One interviewer at PSFF asked him where he was living, most likely hoping for a living together angle and he said he wasn’t living anywhere.

      • CornyBlue says:

        And these answers if given by a girl would immediately make her a stuck up bitch.

      • SBS says:

        @CornyBlue I’m not so sure, maybe. I honestly think it’s in the delivery, if it’s done with a smile and maybe a joke people won’t mind as much.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Carey Mulligan also doesn’t answer those question and no one calls her a bitch.

      • CornyBlue says:

        @SBS is that how Fassy said it ? I have never seen the video.

      • CornyBlue says:

        No one knows who Carey Mulligan is. i mean I do and she is very talented and all but general public nah

      • SBS says:

        @CornyBlue I don’t think the couple of “next question” answers are on video, unfortunately. The instance that comes to mind (except the Are you in love question) is from an interview at Cannes in a Swedish newpaper where the reporter asked him about Alicia and he “answered laughingly ‘Next question'”.

      • Mira says:

        hes 10 years older than her and has been doing press for many more years why wouldn’t he be better at handling the press?

    • Kiki says:

      It worked well with Taylor Swift when the reporters asked about Boys. And she won a million fans. So even if Alicia does or doesn’t asked what she did NYE… She should of said “I party till i was tired or I stayed home and watch the NYE Specials, etc. ” do rub it in oyr faces that you’ve kissed your boyfriend when you want to be private. Urg.

      • Farhi says:

        The fact that people take it so personally is strange. It seems like they want Fassbender with somebody else. AV doesn’t fit into the future they were hoping for him. They want a different girlfriend for him. It is very similar to Sophie Hunter situation.

    • Marny says:

      Absolutely, Peach! I couldn’t care less about her or Michael and don’t really even know why I started reading these comments BUT i just watched the video and she seemed completely harmless. she seemed genuinely embarrassed when asked who she kissed. what’s the big deal?! she definitely was not rubbing it in anyone’s faces.

    • Mia says:

      ^This. Amen.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree. She handled the questions discreetly IMO.

  17. Granger says:

    But is the fact that HE doesn’t talk about HER proof that they’re not together? Maybe his Oscar campaign strategy is all about pretending to be private while he lets the girlfriend tell everyone that he’s a solid, committed, one-woman-man. Genuinely curious here. I think Fassbender is a great actor but I’ve always found him a little… shifty.

    • Peach says:

      Interesting point, Granger.

    • CornyBlue says:

      Yes. I always had the view of the X Men Fassbender in my mind. But i feel now that X Men Fassbender and Awards Season Fassbender would probably sucker punch each other.

    • True says:

      True. People act like Michael has no say or options here. If this stuff bothers him half as much as it does commenters here, he could end it. He could dump her (he’s never had a problem with this in the past lol) or he could simply tell her to shut it. The fact they’re still together after months of her “famewhoring and name dropping” tells me it ain’t bothering him all that much. In fact, it may be working nicely for him being seen as a committed boyfriend vs. the “love ’em and leave ’em” Casanova. It’s like when Leo cleans up his act in time for Oscar season, lol.

      • Kiki says:

        @True. I agree with you completely. I am a huge fan of Fass, but i am not bat shit crazy fan. I do want him with a nice woman but AV is just annoying. I was really disappointed because I was going to like her when she’s opening up. Until these answers to these questions. I know the reporters are nosy and it is so frustrating when you have to be asked these ridiculous questions. But AV is an intelligent woman, she shiuld know how to void those questions and squash them. And it seems that everyone of us is ganging up on her but she made this damage. As for Michael… I know i am a huge fan but he is also an idiot for letting this happen. He could have said they are dating or not.

      • True says:

        @Kiki. Thank you! It’s ok not to like AV but this need by the bat shit crazy fans to portray Michael as some hapless victim caught in the clutches of a conniving temptress is ludicrous. Fassy’s no victim. He’s been around the block enough to know better and has no problem leaving behind a relationship that’s not working for him. If this stuff bothers him, he could end it. One way or the other. It’s becoming a bigger deal than if he said a simple yes or no. Unless this is all working for him as it is. IDK.

  18. tw says:

    There are celebrities who do keep their private lives, private. And then there are fame whores. Both are OK by me. I mean, I don’t love fame whores, but at least it’s all out there. This tacky, insincere game is profoundly annoying.

  19. anon says:

    I feel like she said that he kissed her bf to remind us they’re together. No walk on the red carpet together, no photos, she wanted to say something lol Smart girl, if she hadn’t said that we wouldn’t be talking about her right now. It looks like the only interesting thing about her is her boyfriend

  20. BadAssCompass says:

    Yeah, what she meant to say is she THINKS he’s her boyfriend. lol
    she’s starting to get on my nerves, not that he is any better. It’s not like universe would collapse if he’d acknowledge to have girlfriend(s), I mean if Cumby could wed, all is possible.

  21. Cali says:

    My god, she should STFU now. It’s not sexism where she’s “forced” into answering these questions, rather famewhoreism!

  22. Mira says:

    How can she be his bosworth? She is a much better actress and is making waves on her own. Bosworth never did. You might as well compare Alicia to Jessica Biel. Its highly unfair on accord of the kind of recognition Alicia is getting for her work. In fact Alcia is getting more recognition than skarsgaard ever did.
    I don’t know why this site has to take such a sexist view on this girl and Fassy.

    • Armenthrowup says:

      Mira – I love you for this!!! The attitude to Alicia on this site makes me very uncomfortable – whilst Fassy seems to be forgiven all his sins.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree. This season, especially, she is way more of an awards contender than even Fassy himself. She has done very well in her career, made smart choices and gave great performances, and I think that stands on its own. People make it seem like she is desperately clinging to him and his fame, but really, she holds her own.

      • BadAssCompass says:

        maybe because she can’t own her success and rise above humblebragging with her ‘famous’ boyfriend who clearly ignores her in public? proves she’s just an ambitious girl with producers backing her because that’s what Hollywood does. Seeks girl of the moment.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        How does she not own her success? She’s done interviews talking about her work. How is it “humblebragging” to generically answer a very specific question about who she kissed on NYE?

        So your fault with her is that she is ambitious and she has people backing her talent. That seems so unremarkable and unworthy of scorn. Only against women is “ambitious” used as a dig.

      • Moon says:

        She’s more of a contender because she plays the game, she’s been campaigning very hard. He doesn’t bother to campaign.

      • BadAssCompass says:

        @Tiffany ‘m just saying she’s no second coming as she’s being presented all of a sudden. Decent actress from what I’ve observed and obviously filling in the gap for new fresh faces (like once upon a time Keira, Carey M., Mia W., were all the rage, but also significantly better). As for Fassy humblebrag, I’d avoid mentioning him on a principle, it makes her ambition look thristy and pathetic compared to him not mentioning her at all.

    • Saks says:

      Thank you! Funny enough I became fan of Alicia because of this site: I don’t remember the interview but she said something that made everyone mad. I looked for her interviews in youtube and she is actually quite nice and funny. She is also a terrific actress with an impressive range and has acted and being praised in at least 3 different languages.

      Personally, I don’t care for Fassbender, he is super hot but he gives me creepy vibes. I do wish Alicia didn’t mention him at all, but mainly because I consider her way more talented than him, she won’t really need that relationship to be aknowledged if she keeps doing such good movies.

    • jammypants says:

      God forbid a lass talk about NYE plans and vacation time with her BF when asked about it. Who cares if she’s humblebragging. She’s nice enough and her talent is through the roof.

  23. I Choose Me says:

    Hm. I’m starting to think there might be some truth to other commenters (and Kaiser’s) observation that she’s promoting their relationship as part of a PR game. He might not be a household name but bloggers, fansites and other entertainment media outlets are sure to write about her if she mentions him. So although she’s talented enough, she’s not POPULAR enough on her own to generate clicks.

    I still like her though and am willing to reserve judgment. Let’s see how many more time she talks about or references him during the award season.

  24. Gina says:

    I googled Nicola Beharie pictures only to remind myself how crazy beautiful she is. Gosh! She should be more popular.

  25. wow says:

    I liked him with Nicole and with Zoe as well.

    Maybe this is her way of giving the press a snippet of their relationship status without giving them too much in order to save face in the event of things ending. Maybe Fassy has learned his lesson from previous relationships and just wants to stay mum all together, which leaves the public with nothing but speculation. It could go either way I suppose.

    • Kiki says:

      This is why she and he should keep a low profile and not name dropping other people’s name.

  26. Original T.C. says:

    Out of 5-15min awards interviews Alicia spends at most 30sec talking about her boyfriend. There are articles posted where she talks about her background, her career and her family but those are filled with comments calling her interview boring.

    I’m happy to see her living her life boldly without apology and not paying attention to internet noise.

  27. word says:

    She was really good in Ex-Machina. This girl is very talented.

  28. FF says:

    And yet they still haven’t broken up yet. Why is that?

    Seeing as she’s such a scheming namedropper, who can’t see she’s making her boyfriend torturously uncomfortable because she’s bloodless and thirsty, and absolutely NOT in the first flush of gushing about a maybe serious relationship because – lol – how is she capable of feelings again, and all. Which clearly spells the end of the relationship because there’s no wealth of reasons her boyfriend could still like her after that.

    It doesn’t make sense guys. Let’s keep playing this loop until we’re finally right because that’s the only reason they would or could ever break up.

    He probs won’t marry her or knock her up, so okay. I guess.

    (Sorry, the sarcasm won this time.)

  29. jammypants says:

    I like that she’s dating Fassbender. She’s an excellent actress. She captivated me in The Danish Girl.

  30. Moon says:

    Okay this whole situation is fishy like nobody’s business. Fassbender was never shy talking about Zoe and Nicole, even if he avoided it as much as possible. The fact that he avoided being seen with her…he’s not that cold a man, it doesn’t seem like an annoyed boyfriend it looks like someone who is fed up of being used in the media and didn’t realise what this pr romance would buy him.

    Alicia is…shifty. Fake. I want to like her, I tried to like her, she’s European and she makes movies in a genre I like (arthouse). But she’s phony. I find her manipulation disgraceful.

  31. Moon says:

    I’m surprised that the people who claim AV is being bullied and harassed have no qualms about making similar judgements about MF. So now he’s a slimy unfeeling man who doesn’t appreciate his gf? How come no one is calling them out on it!
    I still think this is a PR romance, and picking fassbender was smart. He’s not well known but he’s known for his intense fans and that is sure to generate press, good or bad. Doesn’t matter if she’s hated, it’s even better because she can claim it’s jealous fassbender fans not her own cold fake character and there’s no such thing as bad press only press. Well I wish her the best. She’s hustled her way into the a list – don’t give me that talent crap, don’t be naive every year many talented artists are ignored and fall by the wayside.

      He’s not Cumberbatch or Hiddleston and his fans have no impact on her professional life. She’s hustling but she has been blowing away the supporting actress competition with regard to nominations and CRITICS awards,and not because she’s hustling. They have been spotted many times doing everyday things. It’s not your typical PR romance.

        The Variety Critics’ pick for the Oscars came out today, and she’s not on a single one of those critics’ list. She’s getting on the official lists (that have more to do with politics than talent) because someone big is pushing for her.

        Are you kidding me? And what are exactly the “official lists”? You’re wrong about Variety because Guy Lodge has her as best actress for Testament of Youth,an indie with any awards traction. Manohla Dargis,one of the most important American critics,has Vikander in her personal list. She’s winning almost every critics award out there with double nominations. The LAFCA, WAFCA awards are among the most prestigious critics awards,and she’s runner up for the National Society of Film Critics. She has three performances in the Indiewire critics poll and she dominates with Stewart both the indiewire and village voice critics polls.Go and see who are the critics who vote for those polls.You don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Hey, bottom line, if I got to ride the Fassdong, I’d put up with some internet hate. No problem.

    LOL, crazy stans will never not be funny. At least the Fassbender obsessives aren’t stalking Vikander and her friends and family, like the Cumberbitches and 1D fans stalk their idols’ significant others.

    hmmm, I’ve definitely been in love to the point of oversharing (though not these days). Just sad when the situation isn’t reversed. Fassy doesn’t really seem proud of this “relationship.” I also think it’s stupid for her to define herself through this relationship, especially if it’s as casual as she loves to claim. I’m breeeezy.
