Fassbender and Cotillard's 'close bond'

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard apparently got on really well while filming Macbeth.

The two have been filming Shakespeare's classic story of Macbeth, which is slated for an October release.

Marion has been in a relationship with actor and director Guillaume Canet since 2007 and the couple have son Marcel together. But it seems she has sparked up a close friendship with Michael.

"She lights up when Michael walks into the room, and when they're sitting together she'll rest her hand on his arm," an insider told US OK! magazine.

"He is falling for her and she knows it."

The co-stars play the lead characters, husband and wife Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, in the feature, so bonding off set is no real surprise.

Michael is also currently loved up, enjoying a relationship with Swedish actress Alicia Vikander. Last month they were spotted out and about in New York, putting on public displays of affection.

Marion has previously spoken about how supportive Guillaume is as a partner, revealing how easy he makes it for her to take on gritty roles.

"Yes. I have to confess: my characters affect my life. But I'm aware of it, so I deal with it pretty well. And when I cannot deal with it, I call my man and I ask him to take my son away! Because sometimes it's hard," she told Empire magazine.

"I talked to some friends about this and they said, 'You have to protect yourself more.' Because when I'm shooting, I'm a different person. I'm still myself but with other ingredients - some liveable-with, some not so liveable-with."
