In the past we had clues, especially from Karlie ("I wish you were here" on December 13 or Taylor sang IDWLF in the car with a kangaroo behind her when Karlie was in Australia, etc...) in her photos. Now no clue, after months and months, it's fair to think that MAYBE they are not still together. And I know Karlie disappears from social media on the weekend.
Unless someone else wants to step forward I’m not going to say a word but trust me, they’re still spending time together. As @kkobsessed said, we believe they split Easter between their families.
All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger (it’s impossible), but calculating risk and acting decisively. Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not to strength to suffer
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
Alicia Vikander, Michael Fassbender on their relationship, onscreen and off
‘I’m not going to talk about my private life with a total stranger,’ Fassbender says
By Joe McGovern
For Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender, their new film The Light Between Oceans (in
theaters Sept. 2) is something of a journey back in time. Both to the
1920s, when the gorgeous drama by director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) takes place, but also to 2014, when the movie’s two stars met and fell in love while making it.
The film is based on M.L. Stedman’s best-selling tearjerker novel,
and in it, Vikander and Fassbender play a couple living in blissful
seclusion on a lighthouse-capped island. But they are dealt tragic blows
as Isabel suffers multiple miscarriages, before one day a rowboat
mysteriously washes ashore with a baby on board. The drama that follows
is heartbreaking, but the two actors fill their roles with incandescent
Off screen, they are a public couple — she kissed him, after all, before accepting her Oscar for The Danish Girl
last February — though they’ll never be accused of oversharing. Neither
is active on social media, and on this weekend afternoon in downtown
Manhattan, Vikander, 27, and Fassbender, 39, sit on opposite ends of a
couch. Though they do, for the first time, address their relationship,
calmly and efficiently, they would much rather talk about their work.
But that still includes the experience that brought them together.
“ ‘Summer camp’ is something I’ve used to explain filmmaking to friends
and family,” Vikander says. Fassbender adds: “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.”
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When you’re playing lovers on screen
and you begin to have feelings for your costar off screen, do you have
to check yourself — like to be sure it isn’t a trick of your brain?
MICHAEL FASSBENDER: It wasn’t the first time in a
movie either of us had played somebody who is falling in love. There is
an element of separation there. If I’m playing a murderer, I don’t go
out and start murdering people.
ALICIA VIKANDER: And I think we’ve made a clear
statement that we keep certain things just between us. It was very easy
to unite, but that’s quite personal.
And I respect that. I’m not interested in asking all about your personal lives.
VIKANDER: [Laughing] Sure!
FASSBENDER: [Laughing] Sure, buddy!
But here’s what I’m interested in. You’ve really managed to
keep your private lives private. A lot of people in the spotlight don’t.
FASSBENDER: But that’s other
people. Each to their own. I’m not going to talk about my private life
with a total stranger, unless I feel like I need to. Why would I? I
But can you remember a time when you were curious to know
more about the private lives of movie stars? That’s the impulse in your
fans to know more about your relationship.
FASSBENDER: I might have been curious about actors’
lives when I was growing up. That’s human nature. We’re all curious
about a lot of things. But my curiosity didn’t obligate them to tell me.
It’s the worst thing if you’re sitting there in the theater, going,
“Oh, that’s the guy who dates this person and likes to do this in the
morning and that in the afternoon.” Then you’re just watching a brand,
as opposed to an actor.
VIKANDER: I remember in Sweden, I used to set the
alarm for 2 or 3 a.m. and get up with my mom to watch the Oscars. But
for me, that was the same as the stories I saw up on the movie screen.
Things have changed with social media and technology, but I still feel
it helps when I know less about the actors I look up to. That’s what I
mean — I love the mystery behind it all.
FASSBENDER: Exactly. The actors I looked up to when I was a teenager, they all just disappeared into different characters.
Who were the actors that you looked up to?
FASSBENDER: All the usual suspects. Gene Hackman, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Brando, John Cazale.
Yeah, I don’t think of Hackman or Pacino and wonder about their personal lives.
FASSBENDER: It was a different time. Nowadays of course everybody’s got phones and cameras.
VIKANDER: Even people who don’t have the jobs we do.
I’ve been asked a lot of question because I’m not on social media. But I
did try Instagram when it came out, and I remember, just with my
friends, feeling like I had to post things. And that was before
I was really in films. And I know it involves a lot of other people who
are not in the public eye. But it’s a pressure that you kind of have to
do it. If you like it, then it’s great. And I do have a lot of friends
who do communicate and express themselves and present their art through
those mediums. That’s just the way we’re moving ahead. But I think you
need to do what feels right.
Do either of you read reviews of your movies?
FASSBENDER: Unfortunately, yes. This fantastic actor
Mel Smith, God rest his soul, we did a play together in 2005 or 2006,
And he said, “Live by the sword, die by the sword.” Usually you just
remember the negative ones.
VIKANDER: Yep, again, it’s just human nature. You can hear a hundred nice words about yourself, and you’ll only remember the one bad one.
You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America’s Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn’t want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named “Bush”, “Dick”, and “Colin.” Need I say more?
“****CALL CONGRESS ON MONDAY-WEDNESDAY. POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA OVER WEEKEND TO SPREAD THE WORD UNTIL THEN.****
I spent my entire life dreaming that I would get to go to Iran one day and meet my family and see the country. Last year I was approved for dual Iranian-American citizenship. Next Wednesday, Congress is voting on HR-158, a bill that would discriminate against people like me. It’s openly discriminatory, to the point where members of the House of Representatives retroactively asked for some of the language of the bill to be changed AFTER the bill passed quickly and quietly this past week.
I really don’t understand how something like this can happen. I DO understand on an intellectual level, but on a basic level I can’t wrap my head around it.
People are posting pics of themselves with their passports. Here is mine. It is a huge source of pride for me to be a citizen of both places and now it might affect my life in a negative way. PLEASE call Congress and urge your congressman to vote against the passage of HR-158. This website makes it SO easy and they coach you through what to say. You just have to leave a voicemail.
