Here's an interview where Michael talks about his show HawthoRNe and then gushes about his engagement and the lady of his life. It's really adorable guys, he seems really happy and in love!


 
 
Michael was on the Craig Ferguson show a few days ago and it was just so gosh darn adorable and awkwardly cute...


 
 


Bringing a little taste of American television, Michael Vartan attended photo call held during the Rome Fiction Fest at Adriano Cinema on opening day, Monday, July 5th, 2010 in Rome, Italy. The Roma Fiction Fest is one of the most important international festivals devoted to TV fiction, thanks to its high artistic and productive quality.

Vartan was there representing TNT’s hour long medical drama HawthoRNe which co-stars Jada Pinkett Smith.

According to the festival’s official website:

Michael Vartan highlighted the originality of Hawthorne, a medical series that shows us the reality of hospitals for the first time through the eyes of a nurse.

Yes, seriously, I'm the Gartan girl...if you get tired of me bringing up the Alias days, then I apologize.  I just re-watched all four seasons (I blatantly refuse to believe the fifth season existed, lol) and I am now on an Alias high.  Could they PLEASE do a movie?  So, I looked through all my Alias media on my hard drive and god, do I have a lot.  So, I thought I'd post all my Jennifer and Michael quotes.  It's kinda insane that I actually have all of these.  I have a lot o' Alias goodies.  But I was one of the chief Syd/Vaughn ladies, haha.  Anyway, enough rambling, please enjoy!

Michael Vartan Quotes about Jennifer:

 

"After all, she is a cutie-patootie."

 

"Jennifer is somehow, I think, gotten bigger than the show," Vartan said. "She's amazing. I think people really like her."

 

"She walks in at 5 a.m., her hair is wet, her skin is perfect and she looks like a warm, fresh spring day," says her Alias costar Michael Vartan. Despite discovering Armani makeup and false eyelashes ("my new obsession"), Garner, who lives in L.A. is "the antidiva," says Vartan.

 

"There are times when you're acting in a scene with her, and even when the cameras on you, all of a sudden, you just kind of lose yourself in her," reports Vartan. "And you're like, `Oh, wow.' I don't want to make it sound like this crazy intense thing, but she just sucks you in and you can't help it. I mean she's so beautiful but she's so vulnerable. She's just this puppy... All right, could we be any more in love with her? Seriously. Is that possible?"

 

"She's amazing, you just cannot stop watching her. I can see her being the next Julia Roberts. I can see her winning an Oscar. "But I can also see her three years from now saying, 'I quit' and moving to a farm somewhere and having a family, because ultimately that's the kind of person she is."

 

"I defy anyone not to have chemistry with her," MV says of JG. "I don't know what it's called, you can't buy it or earn it, you've got it or you don't -- and she's got it. When you're acting with her, you get energized."

 

"Well, I think that is where a lot of her sexiness lies in the fact that she is not just a pretty face, she has got all these other great things: she can kick ass and she's smart and she's sensitive."

 

"[Garner] makes me smile every time I see her."

 

"She's my girlfriend.  End of story." Michael, on the status of his relationship with Jennifer, People (November 03)

 

"Every day we pull out our bikes, we ride around the lot and ring our bells and say good morning to everyone."

 

"...Literally, her hair was like blowing in the wind, and she was walking towards me and she said," 'Good luck.' And I just thought, 'I have to get this role'."

 

"I think all of us fell for Jennifer when we met her."

 

From Jennifer Garner TV Diary, 2004:  After Jen hops down a ledge on top Michael's back, while they're both laughing, he says, "You didn't prepare me!"

 

"It's her kindness and generosity that makes her even more beautiful."

 

"Jennifer would look beautiful wearing only a sponge."

 

Man: "You must be so darn proud."

Michael: (nodding) "I'm really proud."

Man: Ya bustin at the seams?"

Michael: "Absolutely, I can't wait to see it." (smiles) - 13 Going On 30 premiere, April 2004

 

"I am incredibly happy. She is so amazing." MV on dating JG,

in the Dreamwatch Magazine Interview, by Jenny Carillo.

 

 

SI: Your list of female co-stars includes Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner. What did you do in a previous life to become so fortunate?

Vartan: I must have been a coal miner in the late 1800s in Pennsylvania somewhere and either the mine collapsed or I died of black lung. But put Jennifer Garner at the top of that list.

 

How is your relationship with Jennifer Garner?

between us there is a perpetual exchange of good "favours".(laughs) At this moment, for instances, I'm teaching her french. It is so great to be able to speak french daily with the woman you love. On the other hand Jen allows me to assist when she's cooking! (laughs). She is an extraordinary cook! My participation is limited only to the cleaning and chopping of vegetables. Oh well that's already a good start.

 

Does your relationship help your work in Alias?

Jen and I were already good friends. The fact that we are together now hasn't change a thing in our working habits. On set everything works perfectly. There is never tension between us. When you're an actor it's important to separate your private from your professional life. I've never been so happy. She is fantastic.

 

On relationships: "How is your relationship with Jennifer?”

“Between us, it's a perpetual exchange of friendly services."(laughs) “At the moment, for example, I'm teaching her French. And I must admit that is very pleasant to speak French with woman that you love." - Michael on Jennifer, French Mag April/May 2004.

 

 

Of his "Alias" leading lady, co-star (and current Garner boyfriend) Michael Vartan attests, "Well, she definitely has this 13-year-old girl in her, but she's also a serious businesswoman."

(CNN, April 26th, 2004)

 

MV about:

"Concept of marriage"... I'm not against it. I am very for it. I haven't really thought about it, but I do love the idea of being married and having a family.

"Home life with JG"... Yes, she's a fantastic cook. I am just content at being the 'sous' chef; I do the chopping and the peeling and the cleaning. I let her do the cooking, as I don't cook well! Our schedule is so grueling that when we do have time off, we usually do something quiet like that.

 

Man: "Do you guys have any discussions about 'Oh, I don’t want to go to the premiere because I don't want people to talk about our relationship so much and take focus away from the movie'?"

Michael: "We just make a concerted effort to, you know, do these kinds of things separately because, you know, it’s hard enough to keep a private life as it is, so, why, why egg it on? You know?"

Man: "But things are going well?"

Michael: "Yeah." - 13 Going On 30 premiere, April 2004

 

"She's amazing, you just cannot stop watching her. I can see her being the next Julia Roberts. I can see her winning an Oscar. "But I can also see her three years from now saying, 'I quit' and moving to a farm somewhere and having a family, because ultimately that's the kind of person she is."

 

"Well, I think that is where a lot of her sexiness lies in the fact that she is not just a pretty face, she has got all these other great things: she can kick ass and she's smart and she's sensitive." 

 

"It's her kindness and generosity that makes her even more beautiful."

 

“When I first met her I thought, ‘there's no way this girl gonna be Agent Bristow, 'coz she is so sweet’.” (It's from an interview with Michael Vartan from the Alias Season 1 Episode Press Kit)

"This breaks new ground, doesn't it, for television drama? I mean, actually having people who look like they're supposed to get, get together? There's sort of a whole new twist to the recipe..." Terry O'Quinn on the Jennifer & Michael relationship, S2 Audio Commentaries: Second Double

 

 

Cooper, who plays journalist Will Tippin on ABC's hit spy drama, does have a lady dear to his heart, whom he met while a student at Georgetown University. But he confesses to having the hots for his very married co-star Jennifer Garner. He's quick to point out that actor Michael Vartan, who plays CIA agent Michael Vaughn, likes her too! "Michael and I both have huge crushes on Jennifer Garner. He'll call me up and be like: 'I handed her some papers today.' And I'll be like: 'Yeah, well, I got to touch her arm.' "

 

"Sometimes people have a magnetic pull and nothing can stop the forces from attracting" on MV/JG..industry publicist on Us (October 2003)

 

"Michael would run errands for Jennifer, and shuttle her to and from the set" - pal, Star (August 19th, 2003)

This past weekend the cast attended the Red Cross Red Tie Affair where Jada was being honored with the Crystal Cross Award for her outstanding contributions to humanitarian efforts and her support of the American Red Cross.

The cast and crew were also presented a special Red Cross Spirit Award:
"This show educates and motivates thousands of viewers with their portrayal of the daring struggle to preserve life. We've chosen "HawthoRNe" because it reflects our mission to help people and save lives, and recognizes the heroic nursing profession which is at the roots of the American Red Cross."

Oh, btw...I ship Michael's and Jada's real life friendship :)

So I've come across big news...Michael Vartan is engaged! I didn't even know he was dating anyone but apparently he was lol! From what I've gathered from different gossip articles, she's a normal person (not a celeb) and a huge dog lover. All of the articles have different facts about her and some of the articles say she's 25 and others say shes's 29. And then her last name is different in different articles, so idk. But what's most important is that Michael seems very happy and excited. Of course I'm slightly bummed 'cuz my little fangirl heart always hoped I would snag him but I'd also always hoped he would find someone special because he is such an amazing guy and I didn't want him to go to waste, so to speak. So yay for Michael and it seems like he's the happiest he's been in a long time. :)

Here's some articles, the first one includes a pic of the two:
