Michael gets emotional [Jun. 9th, 2010|10:51 pm]

Here are my favourite bits from the podcast, in which Michael chats about how he cries easily and loves naked practical jokes and the theatre.

On loving musicals and Broadway
Michael: "My mum always used to take us to musicals, musical theatre, Broadway and stuff. So my Dad would go reluctantly and my brother's an athlete...we'd all be sitting there and if you watched as a movie, you'd pan over and my Dad's like half-asleep, my brother's laughing, my mother and I are hysterical (starts "sobbing") "Omigod, it's BROADWAY!" And then afterwards, my dad's like "What a fairy! What's wrong with you?" as he's holding my brother, walking off for ice cream..."

Aw, honey...that story has a sting in it :(

Behind the cut, Michael cries at the Lost finale (includes vague spoilers)



On crying at the Lost Finale
Farley: "Any guy that cries, it takes a lot."

Michael: "No. I cry a lot."

Farley: "Rosenbaum, one time he said: "That was good. I had a good cry."

Michael: "I do. When I watched the Lost finale, I was on a date and I put the pillow visor up. I even warned her, I said "I don't think we should watch this." And she goes: "why not? You've been watching it for five years...why can't you watch this?" I'm trying to make excuses like "I don't think it's a good idea...uh, you know." And she's like "You're not going to cry, are you?" On my life! And I go: "I might...I'm invested in these characters. This is....I feel like I'm with them in the group and this is it." And so at the end, if you haven't seen Lost by now, when his Dad's at the place and he goes "Son, you're dead" and I was like....and it was a hard cry, you know when your face just...like you're in SO much pain, and cry like (Michael wails) But I wasn't screaming, I was holding it all in, so tears are like shooting out of my eyes, launching over the pillow visor, hitting her.....she never called me again."

On enjoying nakedness
"My close friends see me naked...you come to my house for movie night or whatever, chances are you might see something. Because it's fun! We're all close friends, we're in my house and I'm like "Omigod, check out this spider! This spider's the biggest spider! It's like I should win an Academy Award for getting 25 people up to the bathroom to look at me naked....then, they're like "Um, really? We came upstairs in the middle of "Lucas"?

Hey Tom, after the photo shoot I got a BIG spider to show you!

It's here:
http://farleybrosradio.libsyn.com/

Most of the interesting stuff is in the second part. It's hosted by the Farley Bros & there's a lot of trying-too-hard gross stories in the beginning. It gets better when they just start chatting.

He's telling these stories like they're hilarious - but it must have hurt a little when his dad said that kind of stuff. *huggles him*

Harsh words from a parent come down on you like a hammer. I'm sure it did hurt. :((

I'm sure he does, the big schmoop!

I still wanna slap that woman!
I almost don't believe she exists because I can't imagine a woman who wouldn't want to cuddle a teary Michael!

How do we get an invite to his house?
I would love to be a guest at Movie Night with Bonus Michael Skin. Even more, I like to imagine Tom being the recipient of this kind of joke!

Awwww thanks for sharing this info. I want to give him a hug now and I don't understand why that woman didn't call him again after he cried at the Lost finale. I would have jumbed him right there...to comfort him of course.

//"My close friends see me naked...you come to my house for movie night or whatever, chances are you might see something. //

That's very interesting! I bet Tom have seen him naked. They spend 7 years together so that means close friends. I so want to read a fic like that now. Do you know any? Tom seeing Michael naked and there aren't any jokes, everything becomes serious...etc.

He would need lots of kisses and petting to be properly comforted!

That's an excellent idea for a story! *sexy*

Oh Mikey, I would've called you again because I was the same way!!

He's so darling. That nut.

Wouldn't a passionately sobbing Rosey be the cutest thing ever? What kind of date doesn't want to rub his back and cuddle him?

If Tom is sneaky, he's using Lost metaphors right now to woo Michael back. "See Michael, you're like Jack and I'm like Kate and there's a gigantic figurative hole on the SV set that only YOU can fill...when it;s time to move on, we all move on together..."

I wish he'd been more of an exhibitionist on Smallville - Lex didn't get naked nearly often enough!

Michael just seems so REAL to me :)
Aw, he does. Not ashamed to be who he is, thank goodness!

Why was his dad so mean like that? Seriously! Poor Michael.

Poor baby. At least, disapproval didn't change his personality or dim his enthusiasm & hopefully his Dad is more receptive now.

Most stories from his dad are like this. *hugs him*

:(

I have a question... What's a pillow visor?

His Dad should have appreciated how awesome Michael was! Hopefully he does now.

I think a pillow visor is a padded tennis visor? The mysteries of Michael-speak!

You're welcome! (Other things that make him cry: the theme music from Taxi & All in the Family because they remind him of his grandma.)

You'd mentioned a shortage of S4 Michael bts pics - do you have this one?

Aww, Rosenbaum.

I wonder if he cried hard when he left SV. I bet he did.

Also, no wonder he can tear up on cue if he's naturally weepy.

He did indeed cry on his last SV day. Asked about his favourite scene:

"That's a good question...that's good. You know the last one was very hard for me, because it was the last episode, the last moment and it's the last time....and I looked at Clark and I added that line, my very last line of the show for Lex, for Lex in the series, when he looks down and says "I loved you like a brother" and that wasn't written. "I love you like a brother...."

"So that was actually hard because Tom and I actually became like brothers over seven years, working together, laughing together, yelling together, everything. And so, for me, it was a touching moment as a character and it was the last time I was going to be Lex....so I look at him, you know, "I love you like a brother" and actually, there were tears in my eyes...it was a sad ending to the whole show and a big chapter in my life."


He also cried saying goodbye to his make-up lady!
"I said goodbye to the crew, gave them all hugs, we were really close. I wasn't choked up, and I was like, well, okay, I'm not gonna get... so I went into the makeup trailer, and the last time she cleaned my head, because usually it's like an hour and a half process, putting makeup on, and at the end of the night she takes it off, because you're not supposed to see a hairline for Lex Luthor. So she takes it off, and she gives me a hug and she's... my makeup artist, her name is Natalie, she says, "I love you!" and she starts crying. So I was okay, and then I walk out the door and I turn around and I look at her and I know this is my last time walking, and I just lost it like a little puppy looking for its mama, I mean, I just started crying"

I think Michael may be a little prone to exaggeration, in order to make the story better! Because what woman could really resist a teary-eyed Michael?
