So for the past few months I’ve been hearing talk that actors and co-stars Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page have been dating but, honestly, I never believed it. I assumed the dating talk was just rumor because the couple have been working hard to promote their film The East (because heaven knows that a famous man and a famous woman cannot walk side by side without folks thinking they are dating). Welp, it turns out that all the romance rumors are … true! The couple were snapped in a very intimately cozy photo over the weekend which appears to be their “coming out” photo. Click below to see the photo and judge for yourselves … it looks like Alexander and Ellen are seriously the hot new celeb couple.
They’ve been dating for a year, and their romance seems to be going from strength to strength. And Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page looked more in love than ever as they took some time out from promoting their new movie, The East, over the weekend. Cuddling up to each other as they kicked back in a San Francisco park, the Swedish actor could be seen planting a tender kiss on his girlfriend’s cheek as she reclined happily in his arms. Smiling coyly as her 36-year-old beau wrapped his arm around her shoulder, the Juno star looked the absolute picture of contentment as she enjoyed some quality time with her man. The intimate snap was shared on Twitter by The East director Zal Batmanglij, who accompanied the duo on their promotional trip to San Francisco. Writing alongside the adorable picture, he wrote: ‘This reminds me of shooting. When we’d lie in the grass listening to Toby practice Rostam’s piano piece. #TheEast.’
It was a flying visit for the couple, with Ellen and Alexander spotted arriving back at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday after completing their duties. The 26-year-old actress was rocking a double denim look in a button-down shirt and jeans, which she teamed with tan leather boots and a trucker cap, while adding a touch of glam to her ensemble with a pair of dark shades. Meanwhile, Alexander – who previously dated actress Kate Bosworth – looked casual in jeans, a teal T-shirt and shades. The couple have been dating for a year and were first seen on a date at the Stanley Cup final in June 2012 after meeting on the set of The East the previous winter.
I have to say … I’m so surprised by this couple. I don’t think I would’ve ever guessed that these two were made for one another but I have to admit, they look really cute together. It’s been some time since I’ve been charmed by a celebrity couple but these two? Yeah, I think they’re adorable. I feel kinda bad that I never believed they were actually together because they just didn’t seem like the kind of people who would couple up. Goes to show what I know. Sorry ladies (and gentlemen), Alexander got scooped up by Ellen Page. You mad?
