Fukunaga, who is half Swedish, half Japanese, dated Michelle Williams briefly in 2011. Speaking in the past of his romantic prowess, Fukunaga revealed, "I’ve written immense love letters that are supposed to be opened over days at a time. I used to always make art for girls. That was the thing I did for girls to like me. I did portraits, drawings, letters that formed outlines of significant things in our relationship. Art. I just used art in general. It usually worked."
