So, I’m still scratching my head about The Tree of Life and What It All Means, and whether that whole movie was just really, really pretty to look at without being as deep as it seemed. But I think it’s now time to give director Terrence Malick the benefit of the doubt as a genius, because he apparently has made the best casting decision since … well, since Steven Soderbergh made Magic Mike. According to IndieWire, and a really grainy photo, Michael Fassbender filmed a scene with Ryan Gosling in Austin over the weekend for Malick’s next movie. A movie that also happens to star Christian Bale. Can you possibly wrap your head around this magnificence? The only reason I haven’t spontaneously combusted is because I knew I had to bring you this news. Read more…
We’re not talking about the August W Magazine cover of Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron, guys. That released a few days ago, and you can see it here. It was steamy alright, but it did nothing to prepare us for the heat that lay on the pages inside the magazine. That gorgeous silver necklace Charlize is wearing on the cover, so visible thanks to the deep, plunging neckline of her Dior Archive dress, is by Tiffany & Co, FYI. If someone is feeling generous and would like to send it over a present, feel free. The newly released photo shoot of the two Prometheus stars is damp, sexy, slightly S&M and has us swooning. Not in a Mills & Boon kind of way, but in a Fifty Shades of Greykind of way, if you know what we mean. The cover story is pretty great two, with Fassbender and Theron both talking about life, movies and their friendship. A hilarious moment comes about when they’re asked, “What’s harder to do? A death scene or a sex scene?” Charlize replies, “It depends on who you’re doing the sex scene with. I don’t have issues being naked. That sounds very slutty.” But enough talk about reading and let’s talk photos again. Specifically the one that’s coming up after the jump. Warning: it’s Charlize in thigh-high stocking and Michael shirtless, again. Read more…
Guys, today is the day Magic Mike comes out and changes our lives forever. Okay probably not, but we do get to see Channing Tatum strip on the big screen, and that still feels pretty important. Despite the way everyone woman (and, let’s be honest, man) is foaming at the mouth to see Alex Pettyfer and the gang take if off this weekend, it turns out Magic Mike is only the most recent in a long line of awkward, dramatic, sexy, humiliating moments in male movie nudity. From Jason Segel‘s weepy reveal in Forgetting Sarah Marshall to basically every movie Ewan McGregor has ever done, enjoy what we consider to be the top 10 moments in cinematic dude nakedness. Though…aren’t they all pretty excellent? Warning: There will be butts.
What’s hot, hard, and runs on Windows XP or higher? It’s robots of course! Our artificially intelligent friends have been heating up screens both large and small with their lab-crafted good looks for decades. They may not have feelings, but then again we’ve always been attracted to emotional unavailability. From Weird Science‘s Kelly LeBrock and Jude Law in A.I. to Jeri Ryan in Star Trek: Voyager and even that Svedka Vodka ad, you don’t have to be well versed in C++ or QBasic to appreciate the sizzling appeal of these machines!
Ridley Scott’s latest epic Prometheus opens wide today, starring Michael Fassbender as hunky android David. We haven’t seen it yet, but we think he’s definitely in the running for one of the hottest robots in pop culture history. But there are so many to choose from! Check out the gallery below for our list of the 20 sexiest robots of all time. With hot bots like these, who needs humans? Did we miss any? Disagree with our ranking? Let us know in the comments!

How could you not love watching Kristen Stewart beg Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Taylor Lautner to come smooch her onstage while accepting the Best Kiss award … before just making out with herself instead? At the same time, how could you not cringe just a teensy bit? Can something be awkward and amazing simultaneously? Oh right, that pretty much sums up the entire MTV Movie Awards. Duh! KStew getting frisky with herself was only one awesomely squirm-worthy moment during tonight’s awards. Our other favorite rock-ward moments included:
2. Mila Kunis’ mystery heckler: What did that nutball yell at Mila while she was presenting the Dirtbag Award? Whatever it was, it nearly made Mark Wahlberg leap into the crowd to defend her honor. “And here I thought I was going to have to slap Russell,” he snarled at the unseen jerk. Whatever the mystery idiot said … awk-ward!
What more can one say about this? It’s Michael Fassbender, staring at you with those icy blue eyes, on the cover of the June edition of GQ. It’s enough to make you go completely slack-jawed. When we recovered enough to start writing this piece, our research took us to the his photo shoot inside the magazine. Bad move. Because it took us another 15 minutes to recover. It’s pretty hot, guys. There’s a reason why the cover line says, “Amp Up Your Sex Appeal — Learn From This Guy — Michael Fassbender.” The interview itself is a bit old, even though the cover shot is very new. It’s a fab piece, still, in which Michael talks about his love for metal and how he looked the part back in the day — “I had long hair, down to here … [he says, holding his hand level with his chest] …ten-hole Doc Martens, and combat shorts cut at the knee.” But if that’s distracting you from looking at the photographs, don’t bother. We totally understand!

Is it getting a little warm in here? It’s just the first of May, and we’re already fanning ourselves at our desk after putting together our own special Summer Movie Preview. We’ll leave the talk of comic books, green screens, box-office takes and mega-sequel expectations to some other sites, as we instead do what we do best: concentrate on those beautiful men and women on the big screens. And oh, there are a lot of them this summer. First, let’s take a look at the fine male specimens stepping up to save the world — from aliens, vampires, evil queens and other threats that somehow loom the largest between May and August.
There’s the staple comic book heroes, though you know these days they’re far from typical: Christian Bale reprises his controversial vigilante Bruce Wayne for The Dark Knight Rises, this time (we think) getting a hand from legit lawman John Blake, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt; Andrew Garfield will fight crime as well as our cries of “too soon” in The Amazing Spider-Man; Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr.. will heed the call of Samuel L. Jackson to join forces in The Avengers.
The return of Mad Men is so close we can smell it, and it smells like Lucky Strikes and Canadian Club. The record busting series has made its stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss the hottest names in television. But the show also features some already-familiar faces. Community‘s Alison Brie has a recurring role as Trudy Campbell, while former House regular Anne Dudek often appears as Betty Draper’s gossipy neighbor Francine. Tom Hanks‘ son Colin, The Nanny star Charles Shaughnessy, and even Secret World of Alex Mack actress Larisa Oleynik are among the many who’ve taken smaller roles on the series over the years.
Over the winter we heard mutterings that 1960s icon Paul McCartney would be putting in a guest appearance on the retro-show this season. Devastatingly it never happened, but we’ve put together a few suggestions for cameos that we know would bring down the house. From Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, to Coco and Ryan Gosling, check out the gallery below for a distinctly FABLife-tinged look at Mad Men! And watch the video to get even more pumped up for the premiere this Sunday!

Take a minute and soak in this gorgeous photo of Prometheus co-stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, snapped at Wonder-Con this weekend. Just let their majestic gene pool wash over you, and then dare to dream of what it would be like if these two A-List singletons were a couple. Yes, we are currently sitting here “shipping” Charlize and Fassy (Charbender?), and with good reason.
1) They are two of the most attractive people on the planet, and staring at two attractive people never gets old.
2) They are two of the most talented people on the planet, and imagining them conquering awards season together gets our film nerd panties in a twist.
3) Charlize has a new baby and we want to see Michael Fassbender hold a baby!
4) For more LOL-filled moments like the ones we got at Wonder-Con, which included Charlize jokingly complimenting Michael on his manhood. “Your penis was a revelation,” she said about the actor’s full-frontal reveal in Shame. “I’m available to work with it any time.”
For more pics of the co-stars, check out our gallery below and be sure to watch the Prometheus trailer, which looks awesome.
