Did you think the end of awards season meant no more inappropriate jokes about Michael Fassbender’s Little Mickey? If so, you were wrong. Leave it to fellow 2012 Oscar snubee (and new mom) Charlize Theron to revive that most illustrious institution: The Michael Fassbender Package Punchline Watch.
At this weekend’s Human Rights Campaign gala, both Prometheus costars were in attendance. During her acceptance speech for the Ally for Equality Award, Theron told Fassbender (who presented the award to her), “Your penis was a revelation. I’m available to work with it any time.” We can only assume she was talking about his work in Shame and not just making a general statement.
Did the innuendo end(uendo) there? Of course not! Theron continued, “I have to say that I was truly impressed that you chose to play it big. Most other actors would have gone small, trust me. I know because I’ve worked with them.”
It might be worth noting at this point that Fassbender brought a cocktail up to the podium when he presented Theron’s award. Is the HRC gala approaching the Golden Globes as the glitterati’s hot new booze-fueled fun time? And when will pictures of Fassbender piggybacking Theron (or vice versa) surface?
What do you think, PopWatchers? On a scale of 1 to 5 Fassys, where did Theron’s package punnery fall? Better or worse than George Clooney’s golfing metaphor?
