Our beautiful Alicia poses gracefully for the December cover of DUJOUR magazine. I’ve just added 10 gorgeous high-quality pictures of the photoshoot taken by Bruce Weber to the gallery, which you can discover by clicking on the thumbnails below. You can also discover the interview below, but be sure to check the entire article back at the magazine’s website here.
Here’s what she had to say to the magazine:
“I’m doing what I never dreamed I would do,” she says. “I pinch myself every day.”
About her new-found fame: “A lot of the films are coming out during the same time, so it’s been a bit overwhelming,” she says in her soft, British-inflected English. “I’m scared of overexposure, but really I’m just feeling very happy about the work I’ve done with people I admire. Finally, we can let the films out there and see them alive.”
About opting for a career on-screen: “It’s probably the biggest life decision I’ve had to make, to finish dancing after so many years,” she says now. “It was a bit like breaking up, saying, ‘I think I have to not see you for a while. I need to go on this next journey.’”
About having to dance for the photoshoot alongside New York City Ballet star Robert Fairchild: “I was like, fuck, what have I gotten myself into. But the music came on and I was able to just let go. We did lifts, we improvised and we danced. It was amazing.”
“In my eyes, Alicia is one of the most unique, forceful and sensitive actors I know,” says Kit Harington. “Working with Alicia is kind of like going into battle with another actor, in the best possible way.”
