Alicia is featured in the current issue of People Magazine (February 22), which has a small article on this year’s Oscars female nominees. The article, entitled The Amazing Women Of Oscar, also features fellow Academy Award nominees Brie Larson, Kate Winslet, Rachel McAdams and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Each nominee could ask a fellow nominee a question. Magazine scans as well as one photoshoot outtake are available in our picture archive.
On how she would like to be remembered: “That I was brave, that I dared to try new things. I think hopefully that will make it an interesting life to look back on. That you never really knew what turn I was going to take. I still love not knowing where I’m going to be in 10 years.”
On how she finds the emotional core of a character: “Sometimes if you’re struggling, if you just ask ‘Can I just have 5 minutes?’, and then everyone stops and you take that time and you go back in. […] I’ve been in many situations where that actually ends up being a good help.”
On how she stays focused on set when she has a big scene coming up: “I’ll just put some music in my ear, and stay on set, maybe even lie down, and just like let everything buzz around me and kind of just zone out and try to relax.
