Nine months isn't exactly something to write home about, but it's always joyous news to learn that Michael Fassbender is a free agent. 

Fassbender met the 26-year-old actress, Alicia Vikander, when they were shooting The Light Between Oceans together, and have stepped out together often, most notably at the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco at the start of the summer. Vikander, meanwhile, is currently busy treading red carpets with Danish Girl co-star Eddie Redmayne.

Speaking of his fleeting relationships, Fassbender told GQ magazine: "I'm kind of selfish with the hours that I put into the work. I think the longest relationship that I’ve been in was two years... I started doing this when I was 17, so I guess in my dating, adult life, that kind of covers it." Hence why he's got previous when it comes to dating co-stars, having enjoyed dalliances with X-Men: First Class costar Zoe Kravitz and Shame costar Nicole Beharie."
