Charlize Theron & Michael Fassbender For W Magazine August 2012

‘Prometheus’ co-stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender steam up the cover for W magazine’s August 2012 issue.

The South-African actress looks ravishing wearing a Dior Archive dress with a Tiffany & Co. sterling silver necklace on the cover, but if you think that’s hot, you should check out the rest of the editorial.

Mario Sorrenti captures the actors up close and very personal in several shots with Fassbender mostly topless and Charlize smouldering wearing a Dolce & Gabbana silk bodysuit, an Yves Saint Laurent metal chain dress and an Agent Provocateur leather bodysuit.

In the issue Charlize talks to the mag about the first time she saw her co-star, going into space and whether she prefers a death scene or a sex scene.

Charlize Theron: On whether she prefers a death scene or a sex scene:
“It depends on who you’re doing the sex scene with. I don’t have issues being naked [pauses]. That sounds very slutty… What I mean is, I’m not hung up on my body, and I’ve been lucky to work with people I’ve been really comfortable with.”

On if she’d go into space after making “Prometheus”: “If space is not the world of Ridley Scott, I’d go. When I watched Prometheus at a screening, I got so scared, I elbowed the metal chair next to me. I still have a little scar from it.”

On the first time she saw costar Michael Fassbender in a film: “‘Hunger.’ A friend said, ‘You have to see this movie. It’s the best thing I’ve seen in my entire life.’ I thought, Just chill out, okay? But I was absolutely blown away by it. It was, like, all bets are off from now on. This is the guy.”

Michael Fassbender:
On how Michael prepped for his ‘David’ role in “Prometheus”:
“At first I was thinking about the Alien films, or Blade Runner—those robots were very human. I decided to make him more robotlike but with human elements within. I looked for inspiration in David Bowie and Greg Louganis… When you read a script, certain images or names pop up, and for some reason, Greg Louganis came up. I knew I wanted to have good posture and a sort of economy of movement. It was the way Louganis walked to the edge of the diving board—I always thought it was mesmerizing.”

    This is a bad shoot. Completely unoriginal, lacks chemistry, and they’ve made Fassbender look like he’s gay by putting him in ridiculous pleather outfits. Boo.

    I love the cover becauseI get so bored by pretty easy smiley celebrity covers, but she realyl looks like princess Charlene of Moanco to me, and not only on the cover, in at least 3 or the shots.

    I keep hoping these two will make babies together, that would be a genetic bar-mitzvah, LOL

    Oh Hi there Mr Fassbender!

    Well, the pics are hot, for sure. But to me it doesn’t even look like her. What’s the point in having Charlize (who I think is gorgeous) if it could be any generic model in the pictures? Or am I wrong?

    I’m confused…she was just on the Feb. cover of W magazine. Why does she have ANOTHER cover not even 6 months later?

      Because she is Charlize freakin Theron!!

    Wow! I love it, especially the cover. After looking at these I’ll probably have an interesting dream with Michael in it. At least I hope I will 😉

      A lot 🙂 I think it’s a very different shoot.

    They make a hot couple. I’m still waiting for your cover of the (AUS) Harper Bazaar’s June/July issue of Kidman.
