Speaking to Entertainment Tonight to promote their new film, The Light Between Oceans, the 27-year-old revealed that the two met before starting rehearsals together.
“We had met at Toronto Film Festival and just on the dance floor.”
And Michael added:
“I thought [I was a good dancer] until she started dancing and then I felt like I had two left feet.”
Aww! Sounds like someone was super nervous. LOLz!
While the twosome didn’t “properly” meet until rehearsals for their film, the 39-year-old admitted the chemistry “was sort of there from the beginning.”
That might explain why the Swedish-native revealed, “there was a load of dancing in the mornings, actually.” But as Michael shared, only “because it was cold.”
The actor also went on to speak of Alicia’s performance in their movie, gushing about his other half:
“She’s a very fierce performer and very brave. It’s impressive to see.”
Well, sounds like we’ll be hearing a lot more from the coy couple thanks to this promo tour!
