Michael Fassbender must feel like a juggler in a circus right now because he's been everywhere and conducting a lot of business in support of completed and pre-production filming projects; in both actor and producer modes. One minute he's in Montreal, the next afternoon he's in New York, then the next day he's spotted in London. In all instances, he was mixing business with pleasure. And as my local film festival winds down this weekend after I volunteer for 20 hours, I get to see Slow West Saturday night (it's opening in Canada on Friday). I feel now more than ever it's a great time to show the support that I have had for Michael since 2007 - more about that after the page jump.
I feel now is the time to comment on the alarming debate about Michael's personal life with his co-star Alicia Vikander.
We've been through this before - every time Michael has a new gal pal, some people (they are not fans) amp up their participation on message boards where there are discussion threads on Michael Fassbender to express their opinionated outrage. They then use those forums to write mean-spirited ramblings about his personal dating life. Other people hijack the forums to overindulge in adoringly analyzing and promoting the relationship. However, I have not seen it this bad. I have a degree in psychology from a top university, but it still alarms me to observe the amount of passionate obsession some people have invested in dissecting and judging Michael's personal life, and the woman he is hanging out with at the moment.
