Michael Fassbender, 40, and Alicia Vikander, 29, had a secret wedding over the weekend. They tied the knot in Ibiza, confirmed People.
The couple, who met on the set of their film “The Light Between Oceans” in 2014, exchanged their vows at the luxurious La Granja farmstead resort. They were surrounded by their friends and family.
On Sunday, the Daily Mail shared photos of the couple in Ibiza. They were seen in photos wearing wedding bands on their ring fingers.
The couple has experience with being married to one another. They played a married couple in “The Light Between Oceans,” when Vikander played Fassbender’s wife.
Rumors swirled when the movie came out that the couple was together, but they refused to confirm the relationship. They did, however, compliment each other on their acting abilities.
“I knew that Michael was attached to play Tom, and I think he’s one of the most brilliant actors out there,” Vikander told reporters.
She continued, “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.”
Vikander wasn’t the only one to pay her co-star a compliment. He commented on her “fierce” acting ability.
“I was kind of scared when Alicia came—she was so fierce and hungry,” 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.”
Later, they spoke to Entertainment Weekly about why it was important to them to keep their relationship quiet.
“I think we’ve made a clear statement that we keep certain things just between us,” Vikander said. “It was very easy to unite, but that’s quite personal.”
Fassbender also commented on how they were able to keep their relationship so quiet when other couples failed to stay out of the spotlight.
“But that’s other people. Each to their own. I’m not going to talk about my private life with a total stranger unless I feel like I need to. Why would I? I don’t,” said Fassbender.
In 2016, they made their first public appearance as a couple. They walked the red carpet of the Golden Globes. At the time, Fassbender said he was “very proud” of his girlfriend and her success—Vikander was nominated for “The Danish Girl” and “Ex Machine.”
Congratulations to the couple and best wishes on their marriage. In other news, Ed Sheeran was hospitalized after an accident.
