Thanks to my friend Neide (www.misslilycollins.com), our gallery has been updated with outtakes from last year’s photoshoot of Alicia for Harper’s Bazaar UK.
This year’s Pirelli calendar was unveiled last week, revealing gorgeous new shots of Alicia. The 2017 calendar is all about natural beauty, featuring stunning actresses such as Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moor, Uma Thurman and more. The calendar was shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh, who previously shot it in 1996 and 2002. Head over to our gallery to discover the two beautiful shots of Alicia:
Our girl continues to be a desired cover girl for magazines, and is currently covering the Winter 2016 issue of Porter Magazine! She was photographed by Ryan McGinley, in a photoshoot styled very differently from what she has done in the past. The spread is getting both praise and critique by fashion lovers, and while it might not be my personal favorite Alicia cover either, she looks so amazing in the photoshoot! It’s a must check-out; enjoy the pretty!
We hope to have hiqh quality scans with time, but for now, make sure to purchase your very own copy of the magazine! You can buy it online at this page.
Alicia to Porter:
On her relationship with Michael Fassbender and working with him on The Light Between Oceans: “We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re a couple… He’s extremely hardworking. He was like, ‘Give me something new! I just need a new idea. I need to do it differently.’ I just thought that was cool. Because that was what I was trying to do, too. To push each other and come up with new ideas each time.”
On the Brexit vote: “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I am European. I grew up in a small country. Without it, I would not be where I am right now in my career – I wouldn’t have been able to live with my three girlfriends in London. As a foreigner, I probably wouldn’t have been cast in Anna Karenina if they’d had to pay for a working visa. I hope here in America that it opens people’s eyes that you can’t just let things happen. You need to get involved.”
On working with women: “I can count on my hands the scenes I’ve done with women.” [She recalls acting in a scene with Holliday Grainger for the upcoming Tulip Fever.] “At the end, I was like, ‘That was fun.’ And then I kind of looked up at her and we talked about it. ‘Something’s different. What is it?’ And I realized that I hadn’t had a proper two-page scene with another woman, just playing off each other.”
I have added a handful of high quality photoshoots and portraits of Alicia to our photo archive. Thank you to my friend Maria for sending these our way!
NY TIMES: It’s impossible to watch “The Light Between Oceans” — Derek Cianfrance’s tale of a childless Australian couple who discover a baby in a rowboat and keep it — and not assume that you’re witnessing its stars, Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender, falling in love.
After all, speculation ran rampant last year when photographs suggested that the incandescent actors were an item — a suggestion that neither would confirm. Rumor seemed to become fact when Ms. Vikander kissed Mr. Fassbender after she won the best-supporting actress Oscar for “The Danish Girl” in February, and the world’s collective knees went weak.
Seated on a sofa — but not too close — at the Ritz-Carlton Battery Park this summer, Ms. Vikander and Mr. Fassbender completed each other’s sentences as they discussed their film, an adaptation (opening Friday, Sept. 2) of M. L. Stedman’s novel about Tom, a World War I veteran turned lighthouse keeper on a rocky, storm-swept island, and his wife, Isabel, whose maternal longing he wants nothing more than to satisfy.
Asked about their discretion, Ms. Vikander, wearing geometric-print palazzo pants and radiantly barefaced, said that “we’ve done this film and we’re talking about it,” but added: “Then you keep certain things private and between us, which I think is the right thing.”
Ms. Fassbender, his blue T-shirt complementing her outfit and his eyes, chimed in, “Our work is something that we’re very committed to, but also our private lives.”
EW: For Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender, their new film The Light Between Oceans (in theaters Sept. 2) is something of a journey back in time. Both to the 1920s, when the gorgeous drama by director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) takes place, but also to 2014, when the movie’s two stars met and fell in love while making it.
The film is based on M.L. Stedman’s best-selling tearjerker novel, and in it, Vikander and Fassbender play a couple living in blissful seclusion on a lighthouse-capped island. But they are dealt tragic blows as Isabel suffers multiple miscarriages, before one day a rowboat mysteriously washes ashore with a baby on board. The drama that follows is heartbreaking, but the two actors fill their roles with incandescent grace notes.
Off screen, they are a public couple — she kissed him, after all, before accepting her Oscar for The Danish Girl last February — though they’ll never be accused of oversharing. Neither is active on social media, and on this weekend afternoon in downtown Manhattan, Vikander, 27, and Fassbender, 39, sit on opposite ends of a couch. Though they do, for the first time, address their relationship, calmly and efficiently, they would much rather talk about their work.
But that still includes the experience that brought them together. “ ‘Summer camp’ is something I’ve used to explain filmmaking to friends and family,” Vikander says. Fassbender adds: “You have to come together very quickly. That’s a very specific, unusual thing to this business — and it can be a very powerful thing.”
‘The Light Between Oceans’ is being promoted strongly these days; so it’s no surprise we finally have a photoshoot of Alicia and Michael Fassbender together. This time, they have been photographed by Jennifer S. Altman for the Los Angeles Times. Check out the article below, but don’t forget to check out the original source here.
“Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are both hot international stars, but they’re not on Twitter, they’re not on Instagram. They don’t do Snapchat,” said Mara Reinstein, deputy editor and film critic at US Weekly. “We know very little about them. So they stay alluring. People could be more inclined to see their movie because their romance is not thrown in our faces every minute,” she said.
Michael Fassbender tensed up for the briefest instant when the topic of his relationship with Alicia Vikander, both his co-star and his girlfriend, arose. Then he relaxed and offered a Zen thought. “People will make the presumptions they want to make. If you start to defend anything, it becomes, ‘Methinks the lady doth protest too much,’ ” the actor said, when asked if he thought moviegoers would draw real-life inferences from his work. “I mean, have you seen ‘Shame?’ ” he quipped, referring to his 2011 portrayal of a sex addict. Vikander, sitting next to him, let loose a sharp laugh.
The pair were side by side at a downtown hotel here recently, polite and formal and trying not to seem like they’re a couple — while trying not to seem like they were trying not to seem like a couple. Over the course of a conversation, about their new movie “The Light Between Oceans,” they could be professional, even distant. But they also jumped in often to finish each other’s sentences in a manner that reinforced their couplehood — an embodiment of the contradiction that occurs when the modern imperative to stay on message collides with the even more modern reality of everyone knowing everything about everybody. Since the days of early Hollywood, actors have been falling for each other on set. And for pretty much just as long, we’ve been obsessed with them.
Alicia is on the cover of Marie Claire France (September), thus revealing a GORGEOUS new photoshoot. Magazine scans are available in our gallery; as well as the first four outtakes from the photoshoot, photographed by Nick Hudson. Enjoy!
