I’ve just added high-quality snapshots of Alicia photographed for the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards by Smallz & Raskind. Check them out in the gallery:
I’ve just added three high-quality snapshots taken from the portrait Alicia realized one week ago at the BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea. The pictures, taken by Steve Schofield, are now available in our gallery:
W Magazine has just unveiled its annual Best Hollywood Actors of 2015 covers, and we’re absolutely not surprised Alicia is on one of them. She was photographed by Peter Lindbergh and I have to say the photoshoot looks incredible. The first outtake has been added to the photo gallery, but stay tuned as more are likely to be added later on.
Alicia Vikander, who surely had the most varied repertoire of any of her peers, was a hypnotic android (Ex Machina), an unflappable World War I nurse (Testament of Youth), and the confused, loyal wife of a transgender woman (The Danish Girl).
Alicia is featured on the cover of the January issue of Vogue US, photographed by David Sims. I’ve just added high-quality pictures of the photoshoot to our gallery, as well as the digital scan of her cover. Keep reading for her interview, and don’t forget to check out the full article at Vogue.com. The issue officially hits newsstands on December 22.
About her life as a ballerina: “I push myself hard,” she concedes. “I don’t like pain, exactly, but as a ballerina I lived in constant pain. At ballet school in Stockholm, I remember we had a locker where if someone had been to the doctor and gotten painkillers, we divided them among us. In a sense we were all addicted. After I quit dancing, for a while it felt strange not to be in pain. It was as if an old friend, not a good friend but a presence, always tagging along, had left me.”
About all her films happening at once: “To be quite honest, it’s nerve-racking, the way these films sort of piled up,” she says. “It’s a mixed feeling when everything you’ve ever wanted in making films is coming true, and yet you feel scared because it’s happening all at once. Suddenly you’re in rooms with people you’ve looked up to for years, the Judi Denches. You wonder if you’re good, if you have what it takes. You carry an anxiety around with you—I’ve met many actors now who will say this—and the lonely feeling that this could be your one chance.”
I have just added a beautiful snapshot of Alicia, photographed by Pal Hansen for the Observer New Review (The Guardian) to the photo gallery. In her interview, Alicia opens up on her new-found fame, the awards season, feminism and her favourite actresses growing up. Check out the picture in our photo gallery, and continue reading as you will find part of her interview below.
“It’s a coincidence, really,” she says. “All these films that I shot at different times over three years simply all arrived together this year. Remember when Jessica Chastain was suddenly in so many films at once? I suppose it’s like that. I hope so, because she’s incredible.”
[About her apartment in North-London] “It took me two-and-a-half years of living here with just three bags, but it has just about started to feel like home.”
“Up until 18 months ago, I thought the term ‘awards season’ was a kind of joke,” she says. “I had never really reflected that a certain kind of serious film came out later in the year. I just thought fall seemed like a good time to go to the movies. It’s colder, after all.”
“This worldwide spread of recognition is insane,” she murmurs. “I was brought up in a small country. If you made a Swedish film that just got into a film festival somewhere, that was like the biggest thing you could wish for.”
Alicia is Harper’s Bazaar UK cover girl for this new year’s issue, and she looks gorgeous. I’ve just added high-quality pictures from the shoot, taken by photographer Alexi Lubormirski, as well as digital scans of the magazine, to the photo gallery. Be sure to check out the whole article back at their website.
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.”
I’ve just uploaded a beautiful portrait of Alicia to the photo gallery. She was photographed by Kirk McKoy for the Los Angeles Times. Keep reading as I reported part of the article below, but if you want to read the whole thing, here it is.
[…]off-screen, she’s earned less positive reviews. The press has often found her to be aloof, describing her as “cooly remote,” “polite but not warm” and “certainly not vulnerable.”
And that’s not how millennials want their stars these days. In a Vogue cover story this month, Jennifer Lawrence takes off her bra in front of a reporter, ditches fancy dinner plans to order pizza and talks about her hymen. Vikander, meanwhile, looks like she could be the princess of a small European nation you’ve never heard of. You can tell she used to be a dancer because she’s quite dainty. It’s easy to imagine her with her hair slicked back into a bun, nothing hiding her delicate, symmetrical face.
