Earlier today, Alicia and Michael took to Entertainment Weekly‘s tumblr to answer questions from fans! It’s a part of their “The Light Between Oceans” promotion, but they answered a lot of questions unrelated to the film as well. We’ve posted some of Alicia’s replies below, but check out EW’s tumblr HERE for everything + Michael’s replies as well!

Alicia only just wrapped up her “Jason Bourne” promotion tour across the globe, and she’s already onto her next! “The Light Between Oceans” promotion have now began, and Alicia and her boyfriend Michael Fassbender have recently done a string of various interviews. You can check out two of their video interviews below; the first is with E! Live From The Red Carpet, and the second with Buzzfeed Entertainment.
Alicia appeared on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, and you can now watch a video from her appearance below! HQ Photos will be added to our gallery later.
Alicia Vikander shows Jimmy how to play a Swedish drinking game where they race to drop pens dangling from their waists into empty bottles.
Our girl does not rest! The first two gorgeous close-ups of Alicia from the ‘Jason Bourne‘ press conference in Las Vegas (July 19) have now been added to our gallery. She looks stunning! We will have many adds tomorrow.
REMEMBER: Alicia will be on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” tonight!
The ‘Jason Bourne’ promotion is still going on, as we now have been graced with multiple new shots of Alicia! Check those out in our gallery:
Last night, the Las Vegas premiere of ‘Jason Bourne’ was held at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. I have added a lot of pretty high quality photos to our gallery, and more will be added later! Alicia was once again wearing a custom made outfit by Louis Vuitton, and she looked stunning.
Alicia was featured in yesterday’s issue of Sunday Style Magazine, in which she talks about her beginner’s luck in Las Vegas, Jason Bourne and much more. Some beautiful outtakes have been added to our gallery, along with a stunning HQ digital version of the cover. We hope to have scans from her full feature up soon.
You can read her interview below – and I strongly suggest you do, as it’s a great interview. Alicia really is a breath of fresh air in Hollywood, and I am so proud of her for everything she has accomplished so far!

“I had beginner’s luck,” smiles Alicia Vikander. She’s talking about a night out with Matt Damon in Las Vegas, a town where luck can give — and luck can take away.
“Buy the ticket, take the ride,” preached Sin City’s glorifier, Hunter S.Thompson, and Vikander, like everyone else, did — albeit on the studio’s dime.
“We get per diems [daily payments from the production company] and it felt like Monopoly money. So I put $100 down and then I was like, ‘Oh sh*t.’ But I won two nights out of four. I should have stopped, of course.”
How much did you win? “I won 22 times my money,” she laughs. “But it was pure luck and no intelligence, really.”
The Vikander I meet on a crisp, bright winter’s day in Sydney is no beginner.
She is a slight, smiling woman curled cosily into a sofa — a striking contrast to the stern-faced, sharp-edged CIA operative she plays in Jason Bourne, the latest instalment of the Matt Damon juggernaut.
Casual in charcoal Acne Studios jeans and a grey Rag & Bone knit, Vikander, 27, looks relaxed, nursing a cup of lemon and ginger tea and kicking off her shoes as she snuggles cross-legged into the corner of the couch.
Perhaps it’s a Scandinavian thing — although she’s Swedish, she’s perfected the Danish art of hygge, that untranslatable word meaning warmth, cosiness and simplicity.
The first thing she does is compliment my very low-tech notebook and pen: “Most people bring all these iPads and phones and I don’t know what.”Read More
Hello Alicia fans! Just a heads up; our girl will be on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon to promote ‘Jason Bourne’ this Thursday (July 21st). We will post any clips and photos of Alicia we can find, as well as HD screen captures the following day.
