NICOLE BEHARIE CONFIRMS THAT SHE AND MICHAEL FASSBENDER ARE ‘NO LONGER DATING’
In a move uncharacteristic of her normally private self, Nicole Beharie tweeted today that she, indeed, was in Thailand (for 3 weeks), that she was also in Albuquerque, New Mexico and that she and Michael Fassbender are no longer dating.
Damn. Spending Christmas and New Years together in paradise only to end it all in a desert. Or did they? Her wording is interesting. I do wish them both the best.
HEADS UP NICOLE BEHARIE FANS: NEW PROJECT ‘THE KEEPING ROOM’ ANNOUNCED
A trio of talented actresses has been set for the period drama The Keeping Room. It was announced today that Olivia Wilde, Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), and Nicole Beharie (Shame) will lead the film, which takes place towards the end of the Civil War and centers on three southern women—two sisters and one African American slave—who are forced to defend their home against an onslaught of soldiers who have broken off from the approaching Union Army. Daniel Barber(Harry Brown) will direct from a script by Julia Hart. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in March in North Carolina.
Like my friend says, looks like 2013 is definitely the year of the slave.
Hi. Okay, I know you're girl crushing on Nicole so I was wondering what you think Fassy sees in her.
1. That smile in the middle left hand side pic? I love that smile.
2. I spy Nicole in three out of the five pics :)
3. Are those little girls that are pictured in the bottom left pic? Lil ones, too, Fass?
4. OMG, his arm muscles in the bottom right pic. Ok. Gonna go cry cuz he’s not mine.
THIS IS BOTH AWESOME AND HILARIOUS
I love stories like this. Artist and blogger, Edmund Iffland, told a great story about his almost encounter with Michael Fassbender over the weekend. Make sure you check out his blog in the link at the end of the post.
My neighboring artist Jess Bellamy is now enjoying the fruits of her labor at the Venice Film Festival as a screenwriter for a short-film that featured in the top ten films in Ridley Scott’s “Your Film Festival” this week. Jess had to change tact and try her hand at screenwriting to adapt her play “Bat Eyes” for film. As the film was in the top ten in this international competition she got to mingle at a party with Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender.
Like any good friend would do, I took this opportunity to ride the Bellamy-wave of Fassbender-heavy success. The night before Jess left for Venice I, like Jess moving from play to screenwriting, moved from fine art to this…
So Jess was at the party and the following unfolded…
Jess met Fassbender.
At the party she also met his girlfriend Nicole Beharie and found she was the best operative to probe the crowd to deliver my artwork to Fassbender.
Here is Jess’ report:
I went up to Fassbender’s girlfriend Nicole, told her I thought she was great in Shame, chatted a bit about Bat Eyes, and then I went “ok this is a bit awkward but when I was talking to Michael I didn’t want to give him this. My friend who is an artist has a picture for Michael. Do you want it?”She takes it, laughs a lot, and goes, “how old is your friend?:I say “mid-20s”.
Moment of awkwardness.
Then she’s like “That’s awesome. I’m giving it to Michael”.
I go off to drink 25 more spritzes, and suddenly there’s a Google executive yelling “WE NEED A SHARPIE! DOES ANYONE HAVE A SHARPIE” (no one had a sharpie) – and then Nicole finds me in the crowd, hands me the piece of paper, and he has signed it for you. With two XXs.
Holy Fucking Shitballs! I THINK I JUST WON THE INTERNET!
You can read the whole hilarious thing, including the bits I left out, here
NO SHAME: MICHAEL FASSBENDER COMBINES BUSINESS WITH PLEASURE AS GIRLFRIEND NICOLE BEHARIE ESCORTS HIM TO VENICE FILM FESTIVAL
Surrounded by beautiful architecture and romantic culture, Michael Fassbender combined business with pleasure as he attended the Venice Film Festival.
The X-Men: First Class actor was seen lapping up the sunshine with girlfriend Nicole Beharie as the pair were escorted through the picturesque city, today (Monday).
Fassbender, 35, kept things low key as he walked down the street with one arm delicately placed on his girlfriend’s lower back.
The in demand star wore a dark blue V-neck shirt with a pair of cream trousers as he covered his eyes with a pair of sunglasses.
The espadrille wearing leading man carried a large black leather bag in one hand as he casually slung a light jacket over his shoulder.
Nicole, 27, took advantage of the good weather and wore a sleeveless white polka dot top which she teamed with a pair of black trousers.
The couple met while filming Shame together but Fassbender insisted they only began dating once the movie had been completed.
He told America’s GQ magazine: ‘Nothing happened while we were filming. We started talking more on the promotion thing. So, yeah, it just sort of unfolded like that.’
Michael arrived in Venice, yesterday, to present the YouTube’s Your Film Festival award at the 69th Venice Film Festival.
Spanish filmmaker David Victori won the inaugural prize for his short movie The Guilt.
Fassbender, who will executive produce the Spaniard’s next movie with Sir Ridley Scott, said: ‘I was engaged from the top of the film’.
Michael has a busy few months coming up as he continues to film The Counselor, with Brad Pitt, before reprising his role as Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Dearest Anon (if that is, indeed, your name), per your request, here are some never before seen on my blog photos of the lovely Ms. Beharie. To answer your questions, yes, I do know it’s been a while. No, it was not on purpose. And, yes, I do still crush on her.
