The 42-year-old actor has been romantically linked to Charlize Theron - after the pair worked together in 2017 - as well as more recently to model Camille Rowe following her split from Harry Styles, but he couldn't be less interested in the speculation and is happy to let people "think whatever they want" about his private life.

He said: "It doesn't affect me. People can think whatever they want. It's impossible to live in a vacuum - you hear, 'Oh, I heard you're dating so-and-so.' Sometimes you're like, 'Yeah, I did.' Sometimes it's, 'Never met the person but give her my number.' "

Whilst the 'Big Little Lies' star played coy about his current relationship status, he did hint that he hasn't settled down just yet because his career keeps him too busy to find love.

Speaking to WSJ. Magazine, he added: "I really enjoy the adventure of traveling, meeting new people and working a lot. Hopefully one day I'll settle down."

His comments come after it was rumoured he had struck up a romance with Victoria's Secret model Camille, 28, last month, after she parted ways with former boyfriend and One Direction star Harry Styles earlier this year.

A source said: "Camille and Alexander have been quietly dating for a few weeks now.

"They met while shooting an ad campaign at the beginning of the year.

"She was just friends with him at first but after things ended with Harry, they started to grow closer.

"Since then they've been on a few dates, including one to a basketball game when she was sat on his knee and they were kissing a lot."

However, the situation was said to be a "bit weird", as Camille is good friends with model Alexa Chung, who previously dated Alexander for two years until last summer.
