One Man Party [edited]

I normally wouldn't post an article like this because it's all speculation and gossipy. But it's kind of funny. And it at least partially identifies Mr. Piggy Back man as a friend of Michael's, not an agent or editor. Take this story with a grain of salt, and notice how they exclude Michael's other dance partner out of the story. I bet he's a full riot on St. Patty's Day.

Edit Feb 3: As per the comment section, it has been declared that it is indeed a falsehood about Michael being asked to leave. I smelled a whiff of bs, but the story was still funny - however, gossip rags are running to the hills with this story, so it's good that someone who represents GQ killed the rumor.

Michael Fassbender ‘politely’ asked to leave party for his own movie - Michael Fassbender had an awesome time at a party for his own movie

Thursday Feb 2 2012
A DANGEROUS METHOD actor Michael Fassbender was asked to leave the after-party for his own movie after lighting up a cigarette indoors and becoming boisterous. The 34-year-old actor was in London this week for the premiere of the movie A Dangerous Method, which also stars Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen. After the stars had graced the red carpet on Tuesday, they celebrated the new release by going to exclusive eatery 34 in Mayfair.

Michael was clearly in high spirits and tried to convince his co-stars to dance with him.However, Michael’s enthusiasm reportedly became too much for other people at the party. "Michael was politely asked to leave. He was in good spirits but it was becoming a bit of a handful for the other guests,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. "He was grabbing his co-stars and waltzing around the room with them. He lit a cigarette indoors and that was the point it had gone too far."

However, MailOnline reports that both Michael and Keira decided to show off their moves together and turned the dining area into a makeshift dancefloor.

According to the publication “the two co-stars couldn't resist putting on a show for onlookers” as they moved around the restaurant. At one point, Michael even tried a complicated dance move as he “draped Keira over his arm and bent her backwards”.

Keira clearly enjoyed herself during the evening. She was seen laughing and kissing her boyfriend, musician James Righton, as they left the party together.

Fassbender left the party piggy back riding on the back of a friend.

Michael's co-star Keira has previously revealed the pair got through the more uncomfortable scenes in the film - which include Michael spanking her - by turning to alcohol. Keira said: "We only had one or two shots maximum. It was a vodka shot to calm our nerves and away you go really. Then we had champagne. We drank quite a lot of champagne actually. You can count on Michael to buy a bottle of champagne when one is required. The vodka and champagne is a good combination."

Way to perpetuate the "priggish Brits" stereotype. Hah! So, in other words, he was being happy and boisterous but those upper-crusties couldn't handle it. I want to be his best friend.

The Independent is writing highly speculative articles with no source in their entertainment column... he's officially made it, you guys.

I believe the Shame DVD has a May release date for the UK... I don't know what the US date is yet, but the listing is on Amazon.

At least he didn't punch a hole in the ceiling and force-feed Lady GaGa a cupcake. ;)

(Kudos if you get the reference. LMAO.)

Manuela said...

who cares))) he had fun and im happy for him. just he is the most cheerier persone than someone else. i love how he just gets fun instead posture with glass in hand and with boring face. anyway i dont believe they could ask him to leave -bul****

Simone said...

The photos were funny to view and it was clear he had the time of his life. I'm glad he did...he has been working hard the past 4 months promoting three films. This was the end of the road for promoting 'Method' and he went out with a fun bang.

Good for him! :-)

Exactly Simone. It's not like he gets surly or rude when he drinks... I bet he's totally one of those guys who goes around hugging everyone and saying "I LOVE YOU, MAN!". Hahahahah.

In France Shame is out on DVD on April 18. Love you, Michael, and I feel happy when you are happy. I like his comments about the hula hoop: humble, once more!

Michael just won Actor of the Year at the UK Film Crtics (aka the RAFAs). I hope that influences BAFTA voting a little!

Dionne said...

Oh my, that's our Fassy! The life of the party... They can't handle the Fass. lol <3

Manuela said...

Simone. yes he worked hard. all these interviews photoshoots...and as final....we ll know on 11-12 of feb)))he needs a rest but he is so funny and adorable like little crazy babyboy. im sure u ll never know how party can be finished with Fassy)))) we can start in London and finish in Amsterdam. damn he is terrible cute.

Flora said...

Oh, what rubbish. Asked to leave the party for his own premiere, I doubt that VERY much! More likely someone just asked him politely to step outside for a smoke because you're not allowed to smoke in restaurants here. You'd usually expect better from The Independent. But yes, those pics are all over the tabloids here - they offically know who he is now!

Of course, that may be something of a mixed blessing: no more popping down to Tesco in Hackney for a pint of milk, not without a hat of some sort anyway.

Michael -

You are the fairest creature in all the garden...

The rumours aren't true. They're debunked on @oliviacole1 twitter, who was present that evening (it's the woman who interviewed for that GQ piece!).

I can't believe someone would make up that story!!! UGH.

Michael needs to get a publicist. This kind of BS is going to become more prevalent as he gets more famous.

bluetea said...

At least he knows how to have fun .Most of Hollywood's A list are an boring lot. I mean thrown out of your own party ? What an man ? ! LOL. He deserves the fun .

Anonymous said...

bluetea: did you read the last two comments? The story was made up... a journalist from GQ confirmed on twitter that he WASN'T thrown out.

Simone said...

Thanks for confirming that this was bs, I took it with a grain of salt all the long.

The usual gossip rags are having a field day with it, as usual, so I'm glad someone from the party stated that it was not true.

I absolutely agree that he needs to get a publicist ASAP. Having one in his corner may have mitigated this (relatively benign) negative rumor. Directing media narrative is what they do.

bluetea said...

So what if it is made up ? It was an bit of fun ...it's not as if someone said he was ill or something .Lighten up Anonymous .

If you don't see the difference between being ill and being kicked out of your own premiere party, then you obviously aren't familiar with the PR industry.

bluetea said...

What i mean't was that this gossip was an harmless bit of fun and nothing to get upset over . What i know about PR is my business and i wouldn't even assume to tell other people how to do their work .Unlike yourself who is obviously someone who thinks they know everything about everything ,in which case i am willing to be educated .
