Alicia & Michael for Entertainment Weekly!

01-102

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.”

Alicia and Michael Fassbender for the Los Angeles Times

‘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 on the cover of Vanity Fair September!

Exciting news! Alicia will be on the September issue of Vanity Fair’s magazine cover! Her cover, as well as some stunning images from her photoshoot, have been added to our gallery. You can read her article below; it’s a long one, but definitely worth a read.

At the bottom of the post, you can also watch a video of Alicia calling random Swedes, asking questions such as “does Swedish people really go to IKEA” and whether they know the actress Alicia Vikander or not. It’s a cute and funny clip, so make sure you check it out!


How Alicia Vikander Unleashed Her Inner Superstar
During her banner year (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl, etc.) and Academy Award–winning leap to stardom, the Swedish actress also found love with Michael Fassbender, on the set of next month’s The Light Between Oceans. Think it was luck? Think again. The 27-year-old is just warming up.

It’s unintentional, mind you, but Alicia Vikander does the Luckiest Girl Alive thing effortlessly. Even doing an interview by Skype—her preferred mode of communication with far-flung friends these days—can’t conceal it. It’s 10 A.M. in Sydney, Australia, and she’s puttering around the house of her boyfriend, actor Michael Fassbender. (He’s decamped there to shoot Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. She’s on a two-week holiday between film sets.) Her hair has that just-out-of-the-shower look. She’s wearing a light-blue button-down shirt that, even if it isn’t her boyfriend’s, looks like it should be. She’s making the kind of breakfast that elegant, health-conscious European women eat: a mix of muesli and yogurt, accompanied by a beverage of fresh-squeezed lemon juice mixed with apple-cider vinegar that some holistic-minded Australian friends are crazy about. “It’s apparently very good for you, but it’s disgusting!” says Vikander. Unlike the typical person, whose face over Skype looks as if he or she were staring into a doorknob, Vikander looks as exquisite and glowing as ever.

This past year has been her year, as they say—the 27-year-old Swedish actress, who now lives in London, shot from relative obscurity to international superstardom with four major films in just 12 months—Testament of Youth, Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and The Danish Girl—the kind of feat that Jessica Chastain accomplished a couple of years ago. Vikander was the “It girl” of this past awards season, earning a best-actress Golden Globe nomination for her role as an intensely alluring robot in Ex Machina and winning the Oscar for best supporting actress in The Danish Girl, as Gerda Wegener, the wild and determined wife of one of the earliest men to undergo gender-confirmation surgery, played by Eddie Redmayne. She’s both a muse to modern fashion designers—a year ago she became the new face of Louis Vuitton—and a dream for costume designers doing lush period dramas. No one has worn romantic, charming period frocks with such conviction since Helena Bonham Carter, as Lucy Honeychurch, frolicked in the grass in A Room with a View.

Matt Damon on His Jason Bourne Costar: Everyone Wants Alicia Vikander Right Now

PEOPLE – After multiple buzz worthy roles in major films – including her Oscar win for The Danish Girl, the Swedish star, 27, is one of the most in-demand talents in Hollywood.

“We were lucky to get her,” Matt Damon tells PEOPLE of getting Vikander to sign on for a role in Jason Bourne. “Everyone in Hollywood is trying to get Alicia in their movie right now.”

Damon, 45, praises Vikander’s versatility in films like Danish Girl, Ex Machina and The Man from U.N.C.L.E..

“I just think of these once-in-a-generation actresses who kind of explode onto the scene and what strikes me about her is I can’t see where her limits are,” he says. “There’s been six or seven [recent] performances and they’re all really different and they’re all going in different places and I don’t see the boundaries yet. I’m really excited to see what she does next.”

Damon adds: “You only get better at this job. She’s going to keep working with great people because great people all want to work with her,” he says. “In my experience, I knew a lot when I was 27 but the next 18 years were, it was nothing but fun because I was doing what I loved to do and kind of by osmosis you get better at it because of the people you’re around and working with. I don’t know where she’s going to go but I’m excited to see it.”

Is there anything we should know about Vikander that we don’t already?

“If I knew something that people don’t know, then they shouldn’t hear it from me,” Damon says with a laugh.

Jason Bourne is now in theaters.

Sunday Style Magazine: How the Jason Bourne actress is taking Hollywood by storm

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.”

Ironically, however, it’s among such an array of technology that her latest character is most at home.
