They are finally reunited! Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender are still going hot, and they made it a point to show it off during their date in New York this weekend. And since they have their promotional tour for The Light Between Oceans coming up, they will be together for a while.
To celebrate the fact that they are in the same city, “the sexy pair were spotted out at TriBeCa hotspot Nobu on Friday night, leaving the chic Japanese-Peruvian restaurant in style,” according to the Daily Mail.
For the special occasion, the Oscar-winning actress “wore a long, black, button-down velvet dress with a low-cut neckline and pleated skirt,” while the Steve Jobs actor got dressed “in navy slacks, a button-down shirt and a blue blazer.”
The one thing that made this outing a declaration of their relationship was the German-Irish actor putting “his arm on his Swedish girlfriend’s back as they left dinner.” This was the most obvious statement of their dating status after their appearance together at this past Academy Awards.
The last time that they were in New York together was back in April to celebrate Michael’s birthday. They mostly managed to fly under the radar for their trip, but they were caught kissing on the streets.
Before this reunion, the 27-year-old actress was lamenting the fact that “she’s barely had time to see her family as well as boyfriend Michael Fassbender” due to her busy traveling and filming schedule.
The Light Between Oceans has been gaining attention as the movie project in which Michael and Alicia fell in love. They star in the film as an infertile Australian couple who discover an abandoned baby.
The movie was made by the same filmmaker who directed Blue Valentine, which just shows the level of romantic intensity that Alicia and Michael had to engage in.
If they are going to go on dates and make their relationship more and more public, the 39-year-old actor may have a hard time keeping things as private as he would like. The last time a reporter asked about his relationship status, he was very hesitant to reveal anything about it.
“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 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.”
“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,” reports the same article.
This isn’t the first time that they were seen out looking rather lovey-dovey. They were in Sydney together just last month, and they did all the things together they can’t do because of the distance.
“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.”
They also worked out together “at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia,” according to the Daily Mail, showing the world that they find each other’s company pleasant no matter what the task at hand is.
