Michael Fassbender dates "Shame" co-star
Bad news, girls. Michael Fassbender is off the market.
The Irish-German actor revealed in the June issue of GQ that he is currently dating his Shame co-star, Nicole Beharie, 27.
"I'm seeing Nicole, we're trying to see each other as often as possible," he acknowledged.
"That's kind of difficult when she lives (in New York) and I live in England."
The 35-year-old hunk was quick to clear the air, saying they got together during the film's promotion.
"Nothing happened while we were filming. We started talking more on the promotion thing. So, yeah, it just sort of unfolded like that,” explained Fassbender, who was previously linked to X-Men: First Class co-star Zoe Kravitz.
The actor also shared that he’s quite the chef but realised that he rarely cooks these days.
“If there's friends around, I'll cook. Or if I have a girlfriend.
“But on my own I kind of fell out of the habit of it, and it's a shame really because I know it's good for me. It's something quite therapeutic.”
In Shame, Beharie plays Marianne who works in the same company as Fassbender’s character, sex-addict Brandon Sullivan.
Marianne and Brandon make a connection and enjoy a successful date, but in a plot twist, she is the only romantic interest in the film who Brandon doesn't have sex with.
