Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander make rare public appearance for date night in New York
It looks like Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander wanted some quality time before kicking off the promotional tour for their upcoming film.
The Irish actor (38) and Swedish Oscar-winner (27) met on the set of The Light Between Oceans in 2014 and have been dating since. And they're about to relive their love story as they begin to promote the film together next week.
The couple were spotted leaving trendy Nobu restaurant in New York, arm in arm, after a dinner date. Alicia, who just wrapped her promotional duties for Jason Bourne, said she was looking forward to spending time with her boyfriend again as they have barely seen each other since the Oscars in February.
They are famously low-key when it comes to their private life and while they never publicly comment on their relationship, Vikander said it was hurtful when it was falsely reported they split last year.
"I always believed there must be some truth to the stuff you read,” she told Vogue. "But I learned."
