He’s loved up with Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl, Ex Machina). (She seems pretty cool, so there’s no holding a grudge on this end.)
Like most celebrity couples they like to keep their private life private. But in a rare moment the two talk about the first time they met, shimmying on the dance floor at the BAFTAs actually.

The Light Between Oceans co-stars talk about their first meeting and how their relationship took off from there. You can check out the interview over at Entertainment Tonight.
