It’s been a while since we’ve had any new pap shots of Michael Fassbender. When he shows up though, he doesn’t disappoint. Here he is in New York on Saturday with Alicia Vikander. They fell in love last year in Australia while shooting The Light Between Oceans. As you can see, that hasn’t changed. But will it change if Vikander delivers on what many are calling her breakout year? What she’s predicting to be her breakout year?
She has several high profile films due in 2015 and she recently told W Magazine that she was ready to be more well-known. This girl is ambitious. And she doesn’t water it down either:
“But next year, the Oscars will be interesting. If all goes well, I’m going to have three films in contention. I’ve had many years of working a lot without being in the public eye. And that’s been good. But by this time next year, I think things are going to change.” She smiled. “I expect to be busy. I’m ready to be a bit more known.”
This is interesting to me. Her fresh thirst for it and his jaded disdain. You remember how pouty he was about Oscar campaigning for 12 Years A Slave after the disappointment of not being nominated for Shame? Or maybe being around her will change his attitude.
