Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander put split rumours to rest with date in New York
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander have put on a united front in New York amid reports they had split.
The Irish actor (38) and Swedish actress (26) met last year on the set of The light Between Oceans and it was reported last month that the famously private pair had parted ways.
While they rarely speak about their relationship in interviews, they have been pictured together a handful of times in the last 12 months.
And they sent the rumour mill into overdrive once again as they were pictured leaving a hotel in New York together yesterday.
Alicia, one of Louis Vuitton's current 'it girls' sported one of the French fashion house's luxe leather bags, while Fassbender was similarly casual in his attire for their date.
Neither commented on the rumours, but Fassbender, from Co Kerry, had previously said it was difficult for him to find love due to his career.
"'I'm kind of selfish with the hours that I put into the work," he told GQ.
"I think the longest relationship that I’ve been in was two years... I started doing this when I was 17, so I guess in my dating, adult life, that kind of covers it."
Though he doesn't take his sex symbol status too seriously: "I make a lot more friends. You become a lot more successful in terms of talking to a girl. She's all of a sudden more interested in me. I know that, like, three years ago, she would've walked away after two sentences left my mouth."
He explained: "I remember I was sitting at this table at this thing, and I was talking to this girl. I was like, 'God, I am so boring right now'. But she was like, 'That's so interesting'. I was like: 'You know what? Five years ago, this would not have been interesting.'"
