78a0LAG 0004592 Michael Fassbender: ‘Career Comes First’

MICHAEL Fassbender puts his career ahead of love.

The ‘Shame’ actor — who was most recently romantically linked to Zoe Kravitz — admits he finds it hard to maintain a relationship because he is always willing to walk away for the sake of his work.

He said: “To be honest, relationships as a whole for me in this industry have been a difficult thing to maintain.

“It goes with the territory. I would be prepared to walk away from relationships because of my job. I wanted to give this everything and go for it 110 per cent, so I guess my work has taken precedence over that.”

The 34-year-old actor admitted he previously underwent relationship therapy with a former girlfriend and he says he thinks it can be very “helpful” to do so — but only if it instigates changes.

He added in an interview with Britain’s Marie Claire magazine: “It was something I thought I would try out.

“And I do think it’s a very helpful process, if there is an improvement at the end of it.”

The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin Joins The Proud History Of Raunchy Movie Posters

Sadly, The Artist star Jean Dujardin is not asking where you want these spare mannequin parts. Instead, the Oscars Best Actor nominee is in fact advertising his new French sex comedy Les Infideles, though we guess writing “French” and “sex comedy” is kind of redundant. Dujardin and the film’s creators are currently receiving a lot of criticism for the ad campaign’s depiction of women. Or, you know, one woman’s lower torso.

“We already feel that this campaign is against the rules … even if it relates to the subject of the film, a comedy about adultery,” France’s advertising watchdog told French paper Le Parisien. “As a preventative measure, we’ve already counseled JC Decaux, who are in charge of the billboards, to take them down.” The spots will allegedly go down on Friday, but let’s be real. This isn’t the first time filmmakers have used sex to get people interested in their movies. In fact, take a minute and enjoy some of our favorite filthy movie posters, including that graphic Hungarian poster for Michael Fassbender‘s Shame. At least Jean didn’t take it there. Yet.

Veteran film stars Brad Pitt and George Clooney made the cut. So did funny lady Melissa McCarthy, along with fresher faces like Rooney Mara and Jean Dujardin. But, as usual, not everybody was famous by the Academy Awards when the nominations were announced Tuesday morning.

In fact, some heading group who seemed a shoo-in for a bullion statue were snubbed from the Best Actor category: Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Although the purpose warranted him a Golden Globe Awards nomination, Fassbender’s provocative purpose as a sex addict for Shame did not secure him a mark on the list. Also left out: Gosling, who was a double-nominee at the Globes for his roles in Crazy, Stupid, Love and The Ides of March (for which Clooney is nominated for Adapted Screenplay).

No stranger to snubs, DiCaprio didn’t accept approval for his work in the J. Edgar biopic, nonetheless he might get a little emancipation at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.

With Clooney (The Descendants), Pitt (Moneyball), Demián Bichir (A Better Life), Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) scheming to face off on Feb. 26 for the 84th Annual Academy Awards, airing live from Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre on ABC at 7 p.m., tell us: Which heading male should have gotten an Oscar nod?

Michael Fassbender’s On-Camera Pee, And Other Oscar Roundtable Moments

Whether they’re peeing in front of a camera, talking about their bat nipples or discussing people slicing off their toes, celebrities truly are just like us. And by us, we mean giant weirdos. When Newsweek assembled George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Viola Davis, Charlize Theron, Christopher Plummer and Michael Fassbender for their Oscar roundtable, plenty of creepy stories and awkward moments started to emerge. “I did actually pee on-camera, ” Fassbender admits about his starring role in Shame, explaining that he got it done in three takes. “Hard to stop, isn’t it?” Clooney blurts gleefully. Other delightfully off-putting moments that cropped up during the stars’ discussion included:

  • Clooney’s depressing shoe salesman years. “There was a whole generation of women who had a toe cut off to fit in tight pumps,” he…jokes?
  • Charlize Theron commanding that Viola Davis recognize, “You’re hot as s–t!”
  • Clooney’s defense of the Batman sequels, which gets derailed by Tilda Swinton’s memory of his prominent rubber batsuit nipples. “Had I known they were going to put nipples on the thing, I would have rethought it,” George sighs.
  • Chrisopher Plummer’s very real beef with Tree of Life director Terrence Malick, saying of his experience making Malick’s film The New World, “I gave him shit. I’ll never work with him again.”
  • Charlize’s amazing impression of Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids.

So….can we give all of them an Oscar for all this riffing? Or just to Tilda Swinton for uttering the phrase, “There are laws about erections now, aren’t there?” We don’t need all those short film Oscars. Just swap one of them out and no one will be the wiser.
