Michael Fassbender & Alicia Vikander probably got married in Ibiza this weekend


I was going to start by saying how weird it is that Michael Fassbender did next to nothing to promote The Snowman, but the film hasn’t been released yet – it comes out this coming Friday. The reviews aren’t great so far, but in all honesty, I think maybe critics forgot that the film is coming out. There hasn’t even been a premiere for it anywhere in the world?? It’s the weirdest thing. It’s also really strange that, considering the star of the film should be in the middle of a worldwide hustling tour to promote the film, Fassy is actually in the middle of an Ibiza vacation with Alicia Vikander.

And so to Ibiza we go, with seemingly the confirmation of a rumor from a month ago: in September, British outlets claimed that Fassy and Alicia Vikander were planning a very low-key wedding in Ibiza, just a handful of friends and family and maybe a simple ceremony. The British sources said it would happen at some point in October. Well, I think it happened? Fassbender and Vikander have been in Ibiza for days, and photographers got some snaps of his mom there too, plus what seemed like other family members. And the DM has shots of Vikander and Fassbender looking like they’re wearing wedding rings:

If they really did get married – and I think they did – then this is still right up there with one of the strangest courtships and unexpected couples I’ve ever covered. I never, ever expected Michael Fassbender to end up with an overly tan Swedish woman. I thought he would end up with someone more like… Zoe Kravitz, whom he dated on-and-off for a few years. Like, Zoe seems like his type. Alicia never seemed like his type. But he’s been with Alicia for going on three years, and they withstood all of the WTFery and criticism and rumors. And now they’re married (probably). I still don’t get it, but I wish them luck and good fortune.

    I’m still a fan of the actor, but the blatant undercurrent of racism from his “fans” that are tickled to death because he married a white woman, *rolls eyes so hard they get stuck*
    She outlasted all his rumored cheating and got what she wanted so congrats I guess.
    Let’s hope he gets his career back on track but considering he can’t be bothered to show up for his film premieres, I think he might be done with acting.

  2. Sixer says:

    I still like them as a couple! And at least it’s cheerful news!

    He did do a full BBC Radio 4 Front Row thirty minute episode for The Snowman. I’m not sure if that means nobody else cared or he was going only for the mid-high brow conversations about it – only work-at-homers like me bother listening to Front Row!

  3. Who ARE These People? says:

    Well, they’re old enough to know their minds and have been together long enough to know each other. Nothing wrong with that!

    Is she “overly tanned” or simply has a light brown natural skin?

  4. Electric Tuba says:

    This is that fella I always think is another fella with the thing and the tank tops.

  5. Di says:

    Well, he’s an Aries and she’s a Libra, they probably lift each other up and give each other space. It makes sense to me. Congrats to the happy couple!

  6. mia girl says:

    Not a super fan of either, and I hope I don’t get anything thrown at me but…
    I think they make a good couple.

  7. Tiffany says:

    Wasn’t The Snowman one of the premieres that was cancelled after the attack in Las Vagas?

    Also, Alicia can do better. I am shocked that she agreed to marry him.

    • Mia4s says:

      No the cancellations were Blade Runner and Marshall. Also Kingsman cancelled their NYC screening and instead donated to hurricane relief. Nothing about the Snowman.

      There will likely be an LA or NYC (or London?) premiere this week; but they limited critic screenings and just in general feels like they’ve already given up on this.

  8. Stinky says:

    Theyre both such great actors!

  9. lala says:

    Fassy is the Hollywood version of my hubby so I’m a forever fan of his. I’m a dark haired olive skinned person and I’ve always been completely fascinated and in love with gingery men :)

  10. ell says:

    AV isn’t popular around here, but i still think she could do far better than MF, who’s shady af.

  11. Joni says:

    This came out of nowhere. Did they skip the engagement?

  12. Lula says:

    Love them both! The photos I saw on Twitter on Saturday of the pre-wedding (?) celebration with Alicia in the white dress and heart-shaped sunglasses are adorable. They seem happy. Congrats to them!

  13. Anniefannie says:

    I think she’s stunning so I’m surprised people wonder about the match. She also strikes me as low maintenance while still being a driven actress. I hope they did in fact get married but I’m guessing he’s a handful, but who could resist?!

    • Wilder says:

      Yes! I totally “get” why they’re together and think comments like “I don’t get it” are bizarre. She’s lovely, talented, ambitious and successful. He’s talented, ambitious, successful and (many people find him even though I don’t) attractive. They’re both young enough to want to travel for work/fun, but old enough to want to settle down with someone and maybe have kids. That’s usually what marriage comes down to — being with someone who wants the same things you do. Makes sense to me.

      (I hope for their sakes the marriage is a happy one and they have fun together. Frankly, I suspect he’ll cheat, but that’s just the vibe I get from him.)

  14. AnnaKist says:

    Well, I have no idea who she is. I didn’t know who he was, either, until I saw him in a movie on catch-up TV in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep. The movie was Fish Tank, I think. Thanks for the info, everyone. She’s pretty, he’s meh, but good luck to them.

  15. Nora says:

    His manic smile reminds me of all those accusations of his history with alcoholism and abuse. I worry for her to tell you the truth.

  16. Div says:

    Shrug, I think they make a nice couple. Not very surprising that they got married since they’ve been together for three years.

  17. AVVSAJNC says:

    Love her, hate him but I hope they are happy together x

  18. Cleatta says:

    He creeps me out. Good luck Alicia.

  19. D says:

    Are there any photos of the wedding dress? I’m a sucker for wedding dress photos. (not sure why, since I have no intention of ever getting married lol)

  20. third ginger says:

    Although his career has slowed a bit recently, Fassbender has been hailed as one of the best in the business for quite a few years now. Anything about looks is, of course, in the eye of the beholder. Does he have a “shady” reputation? Oh, yes. Just wanted to point out that he is a very well-regarded actor.

    • Sunglasses Aready says:

      “His career has slowed a bit recently.” How long has he been acting , 20, 29 years? Just remembered some other films of his and they were poor. The world is full of good actors but what makes or breaks them is a good script, appeal and star quality, the latter two which he lacks. No, his career has come to a full stop

  21. Lindy79 says:

    Huh. He always struck me as a non marrier but hey ho.

  22. Guapa says:

    Yes they did get married on Saturday in a private ceremony on a farmhouse in La Granja. Their families and friends all arrived during the week, 150 of them. http://www.diariodeibiza.es/vida-y-estilo/gente/2017/10/16/vikander-fassbender-casan-eivissa/946129.html

  23. Miss S says:

    Isn’t Ibiza an incredibly tacky place? Am I being unfair?
    Also, what’s happening to Fassbender’s career?

    • third ginger says:

      Answer to your second question: the same thing that is happening to other good actors. Most scripts are terrible. I follow show business very closely, reading the trade papers each day. Many actors are going to TV these days because the projects are, in many ways, more interesting.

    • Saucy says:

      Ibiza is a bit of both: there’s the clubbing/tacky side but there is also the incredibly chic/hippy (read rich hippies and trustafarians galore). I suspect they got married at the posh end :-) Also Fassy is one of those that epitomises the curiosity that is sex appeal. He is not conventionally ‘good looking’ but he’s got it. I’m sad to hear though that he’s abusive? I’ve not heard anything before…

    • minxx says:

      I wish he went to TV instead of picking up really bad movie projects. His career is in freefall and she hasn’t had any success since the Oscar. At least they’ll get some publicity from the wedding/baby etc.

    • moon says:

      Alien Covenant is actually really good, Fassbender is a terrific actor, but he’s not a hollywood leading man. In all fairness even the hot ones (career wise) like Ryan Gosling and Chris Pratt are having trouble. The industry is in the doldrums in general.

      I think they’re a cute couple, but I’ve always felt skeptical about his ability to be faithful to one girl. Good luck to Alicia.

    • Skylark says:

      @Miss S – You are being unfair. Ibiza, like so many really popular Med holiday destinations, has tacky aspects but the island itself is eye-wateringly beautiful.

    • magnoliarose says:

      It is touristy and plenty tacky. I can’t imagine choosing it for a wedding. There are so many beautiful places in Spainit seems a strange choice.

  24. Margo S. says:

    I’ve always wondered. Why is Alicia so tanned? I always thought the swedish we’re pale…? Does she use self tan? Or a tanning bed?

  25. Don't kill me I am French says:

    Congrats !!!

  26. Patty says:

    I actually like them together. Good for her for locking that FassDong down. LOL. He’s 41 and she’s almost 30 so I would imagine they know what they are doing. Should they have kids though, their kids are going to be interesting. It could go either way, really cute or really not.

    I thought they were odd together until I saw that movie they made together. The movie was overly long and depressing but they had great chemistry and I can see why they ended up together.

    And I’ll admit the obvious, Zoe Kravitz was too much woman for Michael Fassbender. She may have been young, but yeah.

  27. Guest says:

    My oh my, where are the insane fans who claimed that this was just a PR relationship? Congrats to them. Next Hiddleston, please. May be Tumblr will vanish then. Crazy people over there.

  28. Ravensdaughter says:

    Congratulations to the happy couple-seriously. They look relaxed and happy in their Ibiza pictures-a positive omen, obviously.

  29. xo says:

    Yeah, this is one coupling that has had me confused from the beginning. They just seem so mismatched to me. Ah, well. “Best Wishes”, I suppose.

  30. Meg says:

    Completely forgot she’s swedish, she’s like Pippa Middleton tan

  31. Svetlana from Moscow says:

    Not really a surprise, it’s been three years! I wish them all the best, they’re a beutiful couple, very low key and private compared to most other couples. Looking at the wedding news in some other blogs and many people like them as individuals but didn’t even know they were a couple!

  32. Jenna says:

    Both extremely talented. And you can forgive a man for missing a press junket on the weekend he got married:)

    He is looking ragged. Get some sunscreen and a good night sleep Fassy. You have lost your mojo.

  33. Hazel says:

    I read the book, not sure I want to see the movie. The book scared me silly!

  34. Miss M says:

    I love this news! LOVE it!
    Congrats to them!

    And: ha ha ha ha ha to the Fassy Fandom

  35. Jamie42 says:

    I loved the movie The Light Between Oceans, and they’ve been together ever since then. Congratulations to them–love them both.

  36. Diane says:

    Good for them and congrats! Michael needs to pick better film projects. At least Alicia has Tomb Raider coming up. After the mess that was Tulip Fever, I hope TR works out for her.

  37. IsThisReal? says:

    Something seems off about this couple.

    They both have brilliant smiles during the wedding(?) and the after party. So I am very happy for them. But I would not be surprised if this was some kind of business arrangement.

    Their demeanors when alone together in public vs. their performances in Ibiza. IDK. But it seems all faked and unhappy. I hope that I am totally wrong and Alicia and Fassy love each so much we will see many little Falicia’s running around. :-}

  38. Flipper says:

    He’s the male embodiment of box office poison – and that’s a rough-looking forty years on him.

  39. magnoliarose says:

    He was good in Fish Tank but he has some problems. I don’t understand why anyone would deny the claims of a DV victim especially with his substance abuse problems.
    There was a push behind him and then it seemed like suddenly there wasn’t anymore.

  40. Blackbetty says:

    Never thought he was the marrying type.

  41. I am bored says:

    Vikander would not have been my first choice to remake Tomb raider but I’m still interested in how good it does at the box office. I’m hoping it does good because I came across this site that just loves fassbender and they are hoping for the movie to bomb because they hate AV for being with their precious “fassy”- it would be cool if Angelina shows up for the LA premiere as a sign of support.

  42. SM says:

    His disinterest in promoting his projects may hurt his carriere. Also, now that abuse and harrasment is thr main news out of Hollywood, should he be right there up with other famous abusers?

  43. Wow says:

    Well, this kinda shows that with men like Fassy and Prince Harry, the women they usually date do not look like the women they end up marrying (or in PH case, close to marrying). I love that. Congrats to Fassy and Alicia V, if true.

  44. Cat87 says:

    I find Fassbender movie career is starting to become more stagement. If he isn’t in a Marvel movie than I don’t see much hope for his career progressing any further. But Vikander is still young and is exploring more roles. I am sure the role as Lara Croft is to make her a super star. Maybe it does or doesn’t I don’t see her disappearing any time soon. For Fassbender he’s been looking more older, season and his roles are becoming forgettable. He really needs some time off to refocus, he’s passing his prime now. He already had his big role as Magneto and his potential Oscar winning role with 12 Years A Slave and Shame. I don’t see where he is going but I do see where Vikander is going. But them as a couple seem strange because they kelp it super quite. Which for them to do that is pretty good. Congrats to their marriage hopefully it last.

  45. Peach says:

    Good for them.
    It’s amusing how pissed his deluded fangirls are.

    I hope Hiddleston & Skarsgård get married soon and Cucumberpatch has some more kids so their deluded fangirls can throw some more hissy fits on the internet too.

    ” It should have been meeeeeeeee ! Buhu! “

  46. Taxi says:

    I like them both! He’s hot, has a sense of humor & can do self-deprecating interviews. She’s adorable, also gives more interesting & believable interviews than many other young female actors. She was brilliant in “The Danish Girl.”

    • Lornie says:

      She gives interesting interviews? She’s boring, learns her interview lines, doesn’t give any insightful details just long very long boring sentences that go nowhere. Takes you in circles with no resolution. She’s pretty but not particularly bright.

  47. Mia4s says:

    Wow I hope he didn’t “blow it off” and was never scheduled to go. This stuff is all contractual. Studios don’t care if you make bad movies, but they sure as hell care if you blow off paid obligations.

    So again I really hope he was just never scheduled to be there. The alternative is icky. I mean if Diego Luna can survive a major earthquake, spend days helping with relief efforts, and still make his contractually obligated appearance at a premiere? I don’t think “I have to be in Ibiza” would hack it with studio heads. Side-eyeing a bit.

  48. SBS says:

    Tomas Alfredson went to it despite having his father’s funeral 2 days later. Maybe Fassbender didn’t blow it off but I still think the star of the movie should be at the only premiere.

  49. Div says:

    I kind of doubt he blew it off. A wedding like that probably takes a while to plan so I imagine they fit it into his promo schedule….also, while it might have been the world premiere the PR people usually focus on making sure the star is either at NYC, London, and/or Los Angeles. He was doing promo in London and he also did something with James Corden.

  50. Bridget says:

    Agree. A wedding takes planning and scheduling. The only way they would have put it that weekend is if he was never scheduled to go to the premiere. And yes, this is something that would have been in his contract.
