Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander put on loved-up display at the beach in Ibiza
After three years together, Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are clearly still in the honeymoon phase.
The couple, who met while filming The Light Between Oceans in 2014, are one of Hollywood's most low-key couples and somewhat enigmatic in their refusal to publicly gush about their relationship.
The Irish actor (40) and the Oscar-winning actress (28) put on a loved-up display as they hit the beach in Ibiza this week on a well-earned holiday: Fassbender recently wrapped promotion for Alien: Covenant, while Vikander just finished filming the new adaptation of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
And it looks like she is keeping up with her the fitness regime as she showed off her impressive six pack as she enjoyed a yacht day with her other half off the upscale island of Formentera. Preferred by billionaires, supermodels and Hollywood stars, the exclusive destination is a partying paradise.
The pair arrived arm in arm as they made their way aboard the luxury Cap Time yacht, which goes for €29,000 a week in summer season.
As for how Alicia got that incredible figure? Her trainer Magnus Lygdbäck revealed her the former ballerina's body transformation began well before she even starting filming the action flick.
"Seven months before filming, I started Alicia on a nutrition plan for her to gain muscle and to boost her metabolism," he told SELF, adding the workouts largely consisted of "mostly weight lifting to build muscle and movement training to help build her into the Lara Croft character."
Then, four months before filming, they started her full-time training regime which included heavy lifting six days a week, climbing exercises two to three times a week and boxing and MMA four times a week.
Two months before, she worked out nearly every day, twice a day, but in shorter bursts - 30 minutes of HIIT in the morning and a 45-minute gym session later.
