Michael Fassbender ‘dating Olympian’

Michael Fassbender has reportedly struck up a relationship with a British athlete.

The hunky star split from his Shame co-star Nicole Beharie in January and it's now thought he has fully moved on. Michael has been linked to heptathlete Louise Hazel, who competed at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The pair were spotted together in London earlier this month, where they enjoyed a meal and then went to The Bulgari Hotel in Kensington.

"They are dating," an insider told 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."

Michael has become one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood over the last few years and his penchant for showing off his hulking physique has won him hordes of female fans.

Although he could have his pick of the ladies, the Irish star has been reticent about getting into a serious relationship. He fears his job puts far too much strain on burgeoning romances.

"I'm quite a romantic person and I love the idea of having a family. But I'd have to take a step back out of this. It's not fair on somebody to be waiting for you. You spend long periods of time apart and then when I am here, I'm working," he previously revealed. "I find it difficult to do both and to give that other person the right amount of attention and time that they deserve."

Michael also gave hope to females around the world when he discussed his dream woman. He claimed having the perfect body isn't something he looks for, as he would rather have a lady who was "slightly overweight" but happy with her life than someone who couldn't have fun.
