Alicia Vikander Says She & Michael Fassbender Have 'Never Hidden' Their Relationship

Alicia Vikander Says She & Michael Fassbender Have 'Never Hidden' Their Relationship

Alicia Vikander rocks a smokey eye while posing for the cover of Porter magazine‘s new issue, on newsstands September 30.

Here is what the 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress had to share with the mag:

On her relationship with Michael Fassbender and working with him on The Light Between Oceans: “We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re a couple… He’s extremely hardworking. He was like, ‘Give me something new! I just need a new idea. I need to do it differently.’ I just thought that was cool. Because that was what I was trying to do, too. To push each other and come up with new ideas each time.”

On the Brexit vote: “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I am European. I grew up in a small country. Without it, I would not be where I am right now in my career – I wouldn’t have been able to live with my three girlfriends in London. As a foreigner, I probably wouldn’t have been cast in Anna Karenina if they’d had to pay for a working visa. I hope here in America that it opens people’s eyes that you can’t just let things happen. You need to get involved.”

On working with women: “I can count on my hands the scenes I’ve done with women.” [She recalls acting in a scene with Holliday Grainger for the upcoming Tulip Fever.] “At the end, I was like, ‘That was fun.’ And then I kind of looked up at her and we talked about it. ‘Something’s different. What is it?’ And I realized that I hadn’t had a proper two-page scene with another woman, just playing off each other.”

    The “we are a private couple, please don’t ask” strategy didn’t work out well as they thought. Time to change the game. (And what an hypocrite, may I add.)

  • Amber

    Terrible makeup on her.

  • Amber

    Also, Michael Fassbender is not aging well at all.

  • Kate Indigo

    How is she a hypocrite? I don’t ever recall her denying she is in a relationship with him. If so please show me something where she states we are not in a relationship. If they say they are a private couple that could mean that they won’t talk about their relationship with magazines and the public. Saying we are a private couple is not denying that they were are in a relationship. Doesn’t make them a hypocrite becuase they want their lives private.

  • Kate Indigo

    How well are you aging?

  • Amber

    Much better than Michael Fassbender since I’m not a cigarette smoker, and I have plenty of melanin to keep me going for the next few decades. ✌

  • Jen

    Horrible makeup!

  • Lana

    IF EVER they want their lives private, she won’t be dropping his name in every media coverage she got. And I don’t mean the writer’s narrative. The world knows it’s always her who talk about MF (or in her defense – ‘accidentally mention her supposedly activities with MF’) in all of her interviews, despite saying that “I don’t talk about personal life”, now THAT IS HYPOCRITE

  • Lana

    The possibility of why she said “We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re a couple”

    1. The writer has mistakenly translate her confusing-English (if it happened, it wasn’t the first time considering that English is her second language – and here I gave her the benefit of the doubt first and foremost)
    2. She was asked a vague question and answer it with such line to add edge (how on earth would any writer ask “so why you’ve been hiding your relationship, if you really are in a relationship?” no one would ask that)
    3. She knows there has been chatter about NO ONE believe that they’re dating not only for film publication, she got asked about MF and answered it that way to shut the narratives that she obviously doesn’t like
    4. She realized that NO ONE (again) believe the “oh we’re private” thing, and decided to bham! shut the doubts, assuming that people would be dumb enough to believe her – well problem is, even her oscar was a fraudulent one, it’s no surprise her relationship (if there’s any) is as much fraudulent
    5. She still believes she could get the attention by stating that she has been dating Fassbender. Poor thing can’t shine on her own

    The “notoriously private couple” strategy failed for obvious reasons (they were never private!) and now the PR couple is trying to expose themselves even more to prevent their mediocre film to bomb even more around the world. Sorry, but b-list showmances don’t sell, that’s why The Light Between Oceans is such a huge failure.
