Michael Fassbender is dating Nicole Beharie.
The 35-year-old actor - who previously romanced his 'X-Men: First Class' co-star Zoe Kravitz - admits his relationship with his 'Shame' co-star is ''difficult'' because he lives in the UK and he is based In America.
He said: ''I'm seeing Nicole. We're trying to see each other as often as possible.
''That's kind of difficult when she lives [in New York] and I live in England.''
Despite dating his co-star - who he was recently spotted holding hands with in New York - Michael insists they only got together after filming had finished,
He added: ''Nothing happened while we were filming. We started talking more on the promotion thing. So, yeah, it just sort of unfolded like that.''
The 'Prometheus' actor admitted he has recently started cooking again because he finds working in the kitchen ''theraputic'' after previously ''falling out of the habit'' of preparing his own meals.
He told the new issue of America's GQ magazine: ''If there's friends around, I'll cook. Or if I have a girlfriend. But on my own I kind of fell out of the habit of it, and it's a shame really because I know it's good for me. It's something quite therapeutic.''
