The Irish-German star is still off the market, as he is happily loved up with actress Alicia Vikander.
The Kerryman told the Sun on Sunday that he is still dating the Swedish beauty, despite recent rumours that they had split.
The pair met while filming The Light Between Oceans on location in New Zealand.
The 38-year-old remains coy about the romance, but was happy to praise her acting talents.
"When she arrived on the set, I could see the determination. there and the focus, the hard work and then trying to keep it up all the time," he mused.
"She's a very good actor, disciplined...she works hard and gives great performances," he credited.
The international star is currently playing the role of the late Steve Jobs, and he is already being tipped for Oscar glory.
The offer to play the Apple founder came at a time when Fassbender was hoping to take a career break.
"I was really planning to take a few months off, but when the script arrived I was like, 'I can't really say no to this.'"
The actor also joked that while researching for the role, he watched Ashton Kutcher's performance.
Kutcher was widely slated for his performance as the innovator, and the movie bombed at the box office.
