It seems that Michael Fassbender is taking a page out of Tiger Woods' book and dipping his toe into the Olympic dating pool. But instead of finding himself a skiing snow bunny, it appears that the 36-year-old actor might be dating heptathlete Louise Hazel.
The pair was spotted dining in London with Fassbender's pal Bradley Cooper earlier this month before heading to The Bulgari Hotel in Kensington. The "Shame" star stayed at the hotel with the 27-year-old British Olympian until about 1 a.m. that evening, and sources are now coming forward with status updates on the supposed couple.
"They are dating," an insider revealed to Us Weekly. "Michael has been talking to her while also filming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in Montreal. He comes back to London to see her."
But it's still too soon to determine whether or not this is more than another one of his short-lived romances. The German-Irish actor was romantically tied to "X-Men: First Class" costar Zoe Kravitz prior to being linked to "Shame" costar Nicole Beharie. In both cases, his career took priority, which he told British GQ is "not fair" to do.
"I find it difficult to do both and to give the other person the right amount of attention and time they deserve," he said.
The dashing actor, who was also briefly linked to Jennifer Lawrence after flirting with her at the BAFTAs, also noted that he is "quite a romantic person" who loves the idea of having a family, but would have to take a step back from his career in order to do so.
