They fell in love while filming ‘The Light Between Oceans’ last year and Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender couldn’t take their hands and eyes of each other as they promoted their new film at the 73rd Venice Film Festival.
The Swedish actress looked effortlessly stylish in a plunging silk blue tie-dye dress, featuring a tie at the waist and a subtle mullet hemline from Prabal Gurung’s Resort 2017 collection as she posed with her partner in Italy’s most romantic city. Her accessories were simple – rocking a pair of navy suede mules and large pearl earrings.
“I knew that Michael was attached to play Tom, and I think he’s one of the most brilliant actors out there,” Vikander said discussing her role in the movie. “I was up for the game, but I was very nervous. I got people that picked me up when I fell and who pushed me. Michael’s support in those scenes were a big part of me daring to go all the way, which was needed for the role of Isabel.”
Fassbender had equally praised his co star, saying that he was a bit “scared” of Vikander’s determination and drive when she first arrived on set.
“I was kind of scared when Alicia came, she was so fierce and hungry, and it was something that it’s always a great thing to see in an actor who is getting an opportunity who hasn’t been well known yet,” he told reporters. “I really felt like I had to get my s— together and just be there and be as present as she was.”
Ah, the look of love! <3
