Sealed with a kiss: Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander enjoy PDA in New York
Things are heating up between Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander.
The couple, who have been dating for nearly six months, may have been keeping a low profile of late, but their romance is clearly going strong.
The genetically blessed pair, who met on the set of The Light Between the Oceans, were spotted walking arm in arm in Soho, New York over the weekend and weren't shy about showing off their love as they engaged in a very public kiss on a corner.
And absence has clearly made the heart grow fonder for the couple Alicia (25), hailed as 'the next big thing' in Hollywood, is filming in Copenhagen, while Kerry native Michael (38) is taking a break from filming the Steve Jobs biopic in California.
While both have been hailed for their impeccable red carpet style, their low-key look is just as impressive. Swedish actress Alicia opted for a purple print cotton dress, but wrapped up for the cold with a black leather jacket and coral leather tote.
Meanwhile, her other half has clearly been reading up on men's style as he sported a bang on trend bomber jacket with his jeans and t-shirt.
Earlier this year, Vikander, who is bracing herself for international superstardom with a string of high profile roles awaiting release, said she hopes to have an Oscar nod by next year.
"But next year, the Oscars will be interesting," she told the magazine. "If all goes well, I’m going to have three films in contention. I’ve had many years of working a lot without being in the public eye. And that’s been good."
