    Eye Want Candy: Michael Fassbender

    Prepare yourself for yet another Fassbender invasion as a sexy robot come this June!

    Who is this Michael?

    A sex bomb who can actually act – Michael Fassbender is equalised to Daniel Day-Lewis with Al Pacino charm. The 35-year old Irish-German actor has an impressive acting resume: fantasy film ‘300’ (2007) and as IRA hunger striker in ‘Hunger’ (2008) are among his earlier movies. Michael’s name first rose to global prominence in 2009 when he played Lt. Archie Hicox in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. He then famously played the charming villain Magneto in X-Men: First Class along with three other movies in 2011. It was not until drama flick ‘Shame’, however, that his acting skill was graded Oscar-worthy.

    5 Reasons to scream ‘Eye want Fassy!’

    5. He’s the best Irish import since St. Patrick’s Day

    Fassy, Fassinator, and the many monikers female fans have given him prove that the man swooned many with his rough look combined with sensitive side. He is not the typical pretty boy roaming around our screen, but the conservative manly man who charms without words – the brooding frown alone is more than enough.

    “I think men, in general, we are running scared at the moment, aren’t we? [laughs] We’re a dying breed! But if you look at Al Pacino and a guy like [American actor] Steve McQueen, they’re different forms of masculinity,”

    Take that, Bieber!

    4. Fassbender is (probably) the sexiest non-human alive

    Who has the heart to hate Magneto, seriously? He was the perfect anti-hero, made humane with emotions. Now hearts, be calm, as Fassbender plays a sexy robot in ‘Prometheus’.

    “He’s the robot. Or humanoid. Or android. Or whatever you want to call it. He’s like a butler. The first thing I wanted to do with him was to make him ambiguous. Should he be having emotions? I wanted to keep it ambiguous and have a lot of fun with it and enjoy it.”

    3. He earns his success

    Unlike those instant idols, Fassbender did not have it easy for almost a decade. He went from bartender to acting small roles – going through misses and disappointments after graduating from acting school in London. Until today, he takes acting very seriously – Michael rehearses scripts at least 300 times before playing a role.

    “Michael’s got a working-class attitude, in a good way,” complimented director David Cronenberg.

    2. He transforms like a chameleon

    From playing muscly Stelios in ‘300’ to hunger-deprived man to Carl Jung in ‘A Dangerous Method’ to sex addict and now a robot – it is safe to say that Michael Fassbender is more than a masculine face. Acting skills, charisma, and extremely hard work may make up at least half of Fassbender’s qualities.

    1. He’s too sexy for Oscars

    Critics and directors agreed that Michael Fassbender deserves an Oscar nod for his sex addict role in ‘Shame’. But no, he was not nominated. Many believe it is because his full-frontal nudity scene in the movie ‘is just not an Oscar thing’. Well, we prefer you baring it all than holding the gold man, fully clothed.

    George Clooney admitted: “Michael Fassbender’s so freaking hot he gives even horses erections!”

    What you’ll need to make your man look like Michael Fassbender:

    He is the epitome of classic manly style: substance over style. His relies on perfect tailored items for red carpet and boyish gears for daily affairs.

    “I’m not very savvy when it comes to fashion, right now I like wearing comfortable clothes”.

    Jersey Boys the Musical: Coming to Malaysia in April 2014

    [UPDATE 15/4/2014: These handsome crooners have landed a spot in our Eye Want Candy list! Read what they’ve got to say here.] 

    Fans of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons will be happy to know that Tony, Olivier and Grammy Award winning production Jersey Boys is coming to Kuala Lumpur from April 15 to 27, 2014!

    The Broadway production will be staged at the Istana Budaya Auditorium, and will feature all the hit songs from Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in a true-to-life musical biography of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time.

    Congrats Brangelina On Getting Hitched!

    One of the best-looking couple in the world has officially gotten married!

    After nine years and six children, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have gotten hitched. The wedding ceremony was said to have taken place in France last Saturday, Aug 23rd.

    The power couple tied the knot in a low-key, private ceremony in a chapel at Chateau Miraval located in the village of Correns. The pair’s children – Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6 – were a big part of the celebration.

    The Associated Press broke the news a few hours ago. It was reported that Maddox and Pax walked Jolie down the aisle, while Zahara and Vivienne threw rose petals, and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.

    The marriage has been eagerly awaited the last couple of years. Many were left wondering and speculating as to when Brangelina would be official after getting engaged back in 2012.

    Well, congratulations are in order then! We wish the newlyweds a happily ever after!

    Eye Want Candy: Lawrence Wong

    Handsome, talented and close to home, we welcome Lawrence Wong into our league of extremely fine Eye Want Candy gentlemen!

    Who is this ‘Lawrence Wong’?

    Born in Johor Baru, Malaysia but spending 23 years of his life in Singapore, Lawrence Wong (王冠逸) is certainly no stranger to limelight with his robust showbiz careers. With a repertoire of work that range from starring in TV show to modelling, Mr. Wong is pretty much an established actor, model and singer in both Malaysia and Singapore.

    Naturally, great talent and good looks are not meant to be contained — this popular chap is now looking to build a name in Taiwan and China!

    5 Reasons Why We Love Lawrence Wong.

    5. He Sings!

    Apart from his modelling, acting and hosting gigs, this handsome fellow also sings! The multi-talented man shares his crooning career began after he started singing theme songs for dramas he acted in. This then instinctively led to the recent release of a mini album, entitled ‘Shallow Love,’ in Singapore.

    4. He Is Crazily Photogenic!

    It doesn’t matter if it’s in the papers…

    A studio photo shoot…

    August Man Malaysia 2014

    Or if it’s just a selfie he casually took…

    Lawrence Wong is one crazily photogenic chap; and we’re not complaining ! Shall we have another image of this looker to prove our point? Yes, why not!

    3. He Makes A Great In-Law!

    While we would prefer him as our own and not as an in-law, this point was simply meant to introduce Lawrence Wong’s latest TV show — ‘In Laws 2.

    ‘In Laws’ is the story two bickering mother in-laws with different personalities and outlook in life. Lawrence Wong’s performance in this drama-comedy garnered him the “Best Male Lead Actor” award at the recent Asian Television Awards!

    Due to the success and high-ratings for season one, the Malaysian TV show is back again for season two. The drama series airs on NTV7 every monday to Thursday at 9:30pm, starting from May 20th.

    2. He Loves Animals!

    In an interview, this Eye Want Candy shares that he has a profound love for animals; especially for cats! As mentioned by the man himself: “I am a huge animal lover. But I do particularly love cats because I feel that there are certain similarities between us. Like cats, I am more of the chill kind of person and I love to laze.”

    It is perhaps this love of his that led him to care for an adorable Munchkin cat names Eskybaby. However we are sad to inform you that the adorable feline passed away last month at the age of seven.

    Rest in peace darling Eskybaby, your daddy and fans miss you dearly. And to dear Lawrence Wong, we’re sorry for your loss and sincerely hope that another furry friend will put back the same smile Eskybaby gave you.

    1. His Nice And Positive Energy!

    One of the things we love best about this boyish-looking gentleman is that despite his established name in the industry, he’s still pretty much a down to earth and a genuinely great guy. The fact that he’d unintentionally slip in some words of wisdom here and there definitely is also a plus point.

    Well said sir! He’s nice, charming, gifted and has incredibly good looks — what’s not to smile about this guy

    What you’ll need to make your man look like Lawrence Wong.

    Formal: Dark-coloured two-piece suit (casual fit), bow-tie (occasional), leather shoes and vest

    Casual attire: Simple t-shirt (printed or plain), plain or checkered tops, low-waist fitted dark jeans, leather jacket

    Accessories: Snapback hat, sunglasses, watch, love for animals and great personality.
