Something very magical happened recently and we haven't yet brought it up. And we are very sorry and very embarrassed about it. But we're talking about it now so…better late than never?
Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman appeared on The Graham Norton Show last week to promote that little movie coming out called X-Men: Days of Future Past. And because those three being together in one room is as wonderful as a box full of kittens on top of a mountain of unicorns, we got not one, but two wonderful Internet gifts.
Gift No. 1: These three handsome men dancing like dorks to "Blurred Lines." Hugh and James talked about how Michael was always late to set and he never wanted to get out of his trailer, but he could be coaxed out with a certain song. You know, to get his "mojo up."
The trio then demonstrated a typical day on set trying to get Fassy out of his trailer, and that is when the magic happens:
That's quite enough, you three.
As for the second gift, well, that one will keep on giving because the Internet exists. Graham brought up that pretty much anyone who saw two seconds of X-Men: First Class shipped Erik and Charles and shipped them hard. It's a serious thing. Graham went over the many couple names they have (personally, we prefer McFassy) and then they got to talking about fan fiction and the graphic art created around the two of them.
So Graham showed a photo a fan drew that featured Michael's character Erik lovingly embracing James' character Charles from behind while they made heart-shaped cookies in their kitchen.
You can't make this stuff up.
Anyway, James took offense to that photo, but probably not for the reason you're thinking:
On one hand, we're very happy that Days of Future Past is coming out soon. On the other hand, we don't want the promoting to stop because it leads to moments like those.
