Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender share an epic love in their new movie, The Light Between Oceans, and on the press tour for the film, we get to see their romance spill over into real life. The couple stepped out for the Venice Film Festival on Thursday, going public with their picture-perfect love affair.

At a photo call earlier in the day, Vikander stunned in a low-cut printed maxi, pulling her hair up into a romantic pony and looking lovingly at her man, who went casual in a blazer and dark jeans.

“I knew that Michael was attached to play Tom, and I think he’s one of the most brilliant actors out there,” the Oscar winner told reporters of taking on the challenging role. “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.”

“I was kind of scared when Alicia came,” Fassbender told reporters. “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.”

“I really felt like I had to get my s— together and just be there and be as present as she was.”

All of that hard work certainly paid off, resulting in both an incredible film and a real-life romance.
