It looks like Michael Fassbender has a brand new squeeze to go along with his brand new Oscar nomination. On Wednesday, one day before he received a Best Supporting Actor nom for "12 Years a Slave," he was spied holding hands in Milan with Madalina Ghenea, a Romanian model-actress last seen on the arm of Gerard Butler.
Paparazzi snapped Michael, 36, and Madalina, 25, cozying up as they strolled around the Italian city, a trip that came on the heels of his appearance at the Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, which he attended with his sister.
According to E! News, Fassbender spent New Year's with Ghenea in her native Romania, where he's been shooting a movie. The hookup talk received a boost last week after she posted a flattering Facebook selfie that offered a teeny glimpse of a man's profile -- a profile that included a ginger beard not unlike Fassbender's.
The pair also surfaced in New Zealand back in November, and there's speculation that they may have hit it off when both attended the Toronto Film Festival in September.
Fassbender's exes include his "Shame" co-star Nicole Beharie, his "X-Men: First Class" co-star Zoe Kravitz and British Olympian Louise Hazel.
Before Ghenea began dating Butler in 2012, the cat-eyed beauty was seen in the company of Leonardo DiCaprio.
