Michael Fassbender refused to shift his girlfriend at the BAFTAs

Being too mortified to kiss your girlfriend on camera? Sounds like typical Irish lad behaviour to us.

LAST NIGHT, OUR very own Michael Fassbender attended the BAFTAs.

There he is now.

His date for the evening? His girlfriend and fellow BAFTA nominee Alicia Vikander.

While they didn’t walk the red carpet together, the lovebirds did sit next to each other inside. Cute.

During the ceremony, there was a kisscam and celebrities were invited to shift one another. Stanley Tucci gave Cuba Gooding Jr a peck on the cheek, and Leonardo DiCaprio planted  a wet one on Maggie Smith.

Everyone had fun.

But when the kisscam went to Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, they were having none of it and point blank refused to participate. (The non-kiss was subsequently cut from the broadcast.)

Refusing to shift your girlfriend on camera because you’re too mortified? Sounds like typical Irish male behaviour to us.
