Blind Items Revealed - Kindness - Memorial Day

Instead of a blind item in this position today, I am revealing a kindness that an actor did for some military personnel.

March 5, 2014

This foreign born B list mostly movie actor is an Academy Award winner/nominee and is loved by lots of women. Lots. Very attractive guy. He is also very generous. He was flying this past week and noticed a bunch of military people waiting to board his flight. He asked about first class seats for the personnel and our actor bought the four available first class seats and gave up the two he had. For the rest of the personnel that didn't fly first class he bought them unlimited drinks and bought them all food before they got on the plane. His total bill for everything was about $20K but the memories he provided for the troops will last a lifetime.

Michael Fassbender

How great of him now. I'm sorry I accused him of having a deformed schlong in yesterdays blind with RiRi.

The Canadans are trying to corner the market on reveals today.

Mama Abroad said...

Lol @sandybrook. I've never seen anything he's been in and all I know about him is he is, ahem, gifted and now this. Not a bad combo.

Sherry said...

This was extremely nice and I wonder who's military it was. Fassbender isn't American is he? Do we assume it's American Military or was it some other? Just curious.

Sarah said...

Ha

Bacon Ranch said...

What a sweet thing for him to do. Not only great memories for the troops but imagine what was going through the minds of the other people in coach when he came in and sat down :)

sandybrook said...

Yeah @mama homeboy has a whang and a half at least.

hairydawg said...

@ Sherry. He grew up in Ireland.

Violet said...

Kind and a big penis. What more does a woman need in a man.

NaughtyNurse said...

Even more reason to love the Vaginabender.

Sweet fassy

OneEyeCharlie said...

Being a good cook, Violet?

I dis woman said...

Oh Assbender, I love you.

TalksTooMuch said...

^5 canadachick!

Violet said...

Charlie - for the above 2, I'll take on the cooking myself. Although I seem to remember you have a penchant for cooking yourself?

Anna Katherine Nonymous said...

Awwwww! so sweet of him. class act

Sillygurl said...

He's still a woman beater. Sean Penn gives to charity too and is also a great actor. Chris Brown beats women too but can dance and sing with the best. I don't know how to reconcile it all.

Troops do remember these things forever too! Especially from a star.

After a deployment out of state, we met my husband and all flew home together, but couldn't get on the same flight because he was flying on orders and we weren't.

Our flight was horrible. Especially the last leg when one of my kids (at the last minute) asked to switch seats with me. I don't blame them, as I ended up sitting next to Jabba the Hut. Jabba fell asleep and half his hot sweaty body melted into my seat and me. To this day I can feel the grossness. He really needed two seats. Half of me was hot and the other half was cold. All of me was disgusted.

After we arrived at our home destination, we were defeatedly waiting for husbands arrival a few minutes later.

He came bounding down the stairs with the look of refreshed glee, "I was upgraded to first class!" And then he began to tell us his adventures...

I swear I heard him tell the kids he motorboated a super model that was sitting next to him, and that the buxom flight attendant gave him a massage and pedicure.

He still tells the tale of that upgrade, and it was done by the airline, no one famous.

I'll take a good cook over a big penis. Size is *not* everything!

TalksTooMuch said...

I prefer to believe in the kind of Utopia where one does not have to choose between the two, LowKey. But you are right, you know, ostensibly

sandybrook said...

I'm a good cook :)))

Violet said...

And kind too I'm sure Sandy. Unable to comment on the third issue.

Renoblondee said...

Great story @ Dingle!

sandybrook said...

I can be kind Violet.

LowKey said...

As always, TTM, you are the voice of reason! Why can't we have our cake and penis too?

Seven of Eleven said...

@Dingle, that is an awesome story!

I'm bummed that it wasn't my ginger love muffin.

gr8p said...

Awww Fassy...that was sweet. Nice to read the kindness blinds.

FS said...

Are military people (of any country) allowed to drink alcohol if they are in uniform of any type?

NaughtyNurse said...

Heck, yeah, they can!! You should see the sailors in NYC during fleet week!!

Zach said...

He's not B list.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Have I mentioned that I like to bake? No biggy. Carry on.

TalksTooMuch said...

True story, y'all should check out sandy's recipes on the book club blog. Violet's too. We're still waiting on Charlie's risotto and cheesecake recipes though; he's being a bit of a tease

LowKey said...

*swoon*

AIP said...

@Lowkey, Fassie's dad is a chef (they own a hotel in Co. Kerry) if that helps? ;)

If it's the US military, then that is incredibly nice (it must be - I don't see him having occasion to accompany our lads back from DRC or Lebanon).

Aragon64 said...

Well, not all that surprising when you remember that he was in Band of Brothers.
What a great gesture.

StuffandNonsense said...

I love me some Fassbender - and now - just a little bit more.

Erik said...

Nice.

TalksTooMuch said...

Seewhatimean? Tease

TalksTooMuch said...

I totally flinch every time I read that,Seven

ecua said...

What Sillygurl said.
Is everyone really going to ignore his record of domestic abuse?

Dingle Barry said...

FS,
No they are not allowed to drink in uniform when they are flying with orders and they have uniforms on. Some have to fly in civilian clothes to/from depending on if they are flying without a unit or dependant upon which country they may be having a layover at or final destination. Lots of variables. However, they are very much allowed to throw down in uniform for the USMC Birthday Ball, any Service Branch Ball, Dining In/Out, and other service related gatherings. Fun times will be had by most.

Dingle Barry said...

I was once on a flight out to see my children. The plane was full of Marines that had been working for four months hard, no breaks, out in a bush village in the middle of NoWhere Alaska. The village was a dry village. Alcohol was banned, bringing it is illegal. Making it is illegal.
The Marines were dressed in civilian clothes and proceeded to get hammered! They were loud, obnoxious, and having fun. I didn't care. It was like having my boys back at home.

Sprink said...

It was never going to be him, @Seven. He's a Scot; too "frugal."

Sprink said...

Ecua ya, without evidence, yes, yes I do plan to ignore it. It's an unsubstantiated rumour based on a request for a restraining order that was filed four or five years ago and removed a month later.

Sillygurl mentions Penn and Brown but this is different. Both were charged and found guilty (in Penn's case, he copped a plea).

The Fassbender allegation isn't remotely like this, it has far less substance to it (where are the hospital records for the broken nose, where are the witnesses?), so yes , I ignore it.
