Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander made their red carpet debut as a couple at premiere of ‘The Light between Oceans’ — the movie that brought them together — at the Venice Film Festival at the ACM Awards. You can see the photos and video of the affectionate duo right here.
The 27-year-old Alicia Vikander rose to fame as the Oscar winning star of ‘The Danish Girl.’ She was paired with the two-time Oscar nominee 39-year-old Michael Fassbender in the screen adaptation of the World War I era romantic drama, ‘The Light between Oceans,’ the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife, based on M. L. Stedman’s international bestselling novel of the same title.
The Oscar-buzzed movie had its premiere at the Venice Film Festival and the movie couple turned real-life couple were dazzling on the red carpet.
Michael Fassbender spoke highly of his costar and girlfriend in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying of her, “I was kind of scared when Alicia came, she was so fierce and hungry, and it was something that is always a great thing to see in an actor who is getting an opportunity who hasn’t been well known yet.”
He went on to say, “It’s always great to see that hunger when you’re given that opportunity, and you grab it with both hands.”
While both are obvious Oscar contenders they are also one of Hollywood’s hottest new couples, all the more so as they fell in love on a movie set.
Recently, Alicia Vikander said in an interview with Vanity Fair that being a magnet for attention as a hot celebrity couple was new to her. She said, “”The gossip press is so big out here. There’s an urge to find that one thing that you say that can make a headline. It’s tough because I don’t want to be reserved, or holding back, or to not be myself.”
And for his part, Fassbender told Entertainment Weekly that the couple intends to remain private. He said, “I think we’ve made a clear statement that we keep certain things just between us.” He went on to say, “I’m not going to talk about my private life with a total stranger, unless I feel like I need to. “Why would I? I don’t.”
Thus their joint appearance on the red carpet has generated all the more buzz and excitement in the celebrity watching world that’s always clamoring! That said, the couple did, after all, do their duty in promoting this critically acclaimed and much anticipated movie and the pics are going viral, of course.
