“Yeah, we met on that job and have been seeing each other since,” Fassbender told GMA when asked about his lady love. “She’s such a fierce performer. She’s so brave. She’s not afraid to bring ugly personality traits to the forefront in characters. So I was really impressed by her immediately.”

The couple started dating in 2014 while shooting the film, in which they play a married couple who discover a newborn baby in a rowboat shortly after losing their own child. The movie is based on the 2012 book of the same name by M.L. Stedman.

As previously reported, the couple took a brief break in September 2015 but later got back together. They even shared a sweet kiss at the Oscars in February when the Danish Girl star won Best Supporting Actress.

And they looked like a picture-perfect couple while posing on the red carpet at the premiere of The Light Between Oceans at the 2016 Venice Film Festival in Italy on Thursday.

“‘Summer camp’ is something I’ve used to explain filmmaking to friends and family,” Vikander recently told Entertainment Weekly of filming with her boyfriend.

“You have to come together very quickly. That’s a very specific, unusual thing to this business — and it can be a very powerful thing,” Fassbender added.
