Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are finally reunited after months of being separated from each other. With Alicia winning the Oscars this year and Michael churning out movies faster than ever before, it has made being on the same continent hard. But now that they are back in Australia, where they met, they are enjoying the honeymoon phase of their relationship!
“Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender appeared to be just as much in the honeymoon period as they enjoyed a workout session together on Friday at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia,” reports the Daily Mail. “The pair were joined by a trainer, who put them through their paces with an array of taxing exercises as they worked up a sweat in the sunshine.”

The first time they publicly confirmed their dating status was when they kissed on air during the Oscars ceremony just as Alicia Vikander was getting up to accept the Best Supporting Actress award for her work in The Danish Girl.
But since then, their commitments took them to different places. With Michael working on Assassin’s Creed and Alicia filming Tulip Fever and starting her own production company in London, things have not been aligning for Hollywood’s most sought-after actors.
They were briefly allowed to reunite in New York to celebrate the German-Irish actor’s 39th birthday, but since then, the Atlantic Ocean has stood between them for a while.
Now that they are together in Australia, they are enjoying all the simple dates that couples go on in the first few months of dating. Apart from working out together, they have also bowled and appeared together going on lunch dates.
“Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander look happy as can be together while leaving Chiswick restaurant following a lunch date,” reports Just Jared. “The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress wore a matching crop top and skirt while Michael, 39, went casual in a t-shirt and short shorts.”

It’s hard to imagine such an intense actor like Michael Fassbender bowling with his girlfriend, but that’s exactly what he did to please Vikander.
“They’ve never so much as uttered a word to confirm or deny the status of their relationship publicly,” reports the Daily Mail. “But perhaps it was simply a happy coincidence that Michael Fassbender and his rumoured girlfriend Alicia Vikander happened to be in the same place at the same time on Saturday. The notoriously private Irishman, 39, and his The Light Between Oceans co-star, 27, were spotted leaving Darling Harbour’s Kingpin Bowling in Sydney after playing a few games.”

The tragic love story brought them closer together, and they have been able to sustain their romance over months of being separated from each other.
But that doesn’t mean that they are ready to flaunt their relationship for the world.
“It has been reported that Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander’s upcoming movie The Light Between Oceans is where their love ignited, but it’s not a good idea to ask the actor about that,” reports the Sydney Morning Herald. “The notoriously private Irish star shot down a question on that very notion despite talk being excitedly rife on the subject with the release of the movie’s official trailer this week.”
The article adds, “Dropping his toothy grin, and reaching out and giving this reporter a light and unexpected smack on the right shoulder, he replied, ‘nice talking to you’, before turning on his heels and heading off in the direction of the next waiting reporter.”
It’s probably best to leave the lovebirds alone to enjoy the honeymoon phase of their dating!
