Marie Claire US — Alicia Vikander likes making plans. When she was 12 years old, she looked at the year 2018 on a calendar and thought about what her life would be like then. “I realized I’d be 30, and in my head, 30 was the year you became an adult, so I remember thinking, Hopefully I’m going to have something good by then, but I’m also going to be old.

Vikander laughs—a lovely husky sound that rings out across the garden of L.A.’s Chateau Marmont, where she sits without a bit of makeup on, relaxed and glowing in cropped Paige jeans and a long-sleeve navy t-shirt. She’s just back from skiing in the French Alps over New Year’s (“It was amazing!”). Her dark wavy hair is air-dried, her tobacco-brown eyes warm, a Louis Vuitton Petite Malle bag tossed casually to one side. It’s the day after the Golden Globes, where Vikander presented the award for Best Motion Picture Comedy to Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird, and the hotel is bustling with postmortem cheer. A sleepy-eyed Dakota Johnson comes up, murmurs,“Morning…” and envelops Vikander in a bearhug. Once she’s gone, Vikander smiles wryly and continues, “The nice thing is, life has only gone better than I’d imagined.


It’s interesting that a character that has been seen as very sexualized back in the ’90s is very different now,” says Vikander. “If you go out in the street and ask men and women, young and old, what they find attractive, it’s different. You want her to be attractive and sexy, but, nowadays, you want this to be a girl that fights. Someone who’s vulnerable, but funny. Someone who’s OK with people seeing her bad sides.

In some ways, Vikander’s Lara Croft seems tailor-made for the #MeToo movement. She’s all about strength and grit, taking on challenges. Survival. There is no love story in the film, no steamy shower scenes or sultry pursing of lips before throwing punches. Instead, we see her bruised and bloodied but never down for the count. “She always stands up,” says Vikander. “When things are found to be quite shit, she always sees the bright side. She just keeps on going.

We are certainly being blessed with many new photoshoots this year, Alicia fans! Following the stunning Hunger Magazine photoshoot we just posted below, we’ve already now got another one for you. During her promotion tour for Tomb Raider in Los Angeles, Alicia stopped by USA Today for a gorgeous portrait session and an interview. You can find the pretty new portraits in our gallery, and read on for their full story! More Tomb Raider related updates are coming up, stay tuned …

USA TODAY | LOS ANGELES – Alicia Vikander had just wrapped her exhausting 100-day Tomb Raider shoot last June when she decided to catch the summer movie sensation Wonder Woman for rest and relaxation.

Seeing Gal Gadot’s powerful Diana Prince at the center of the superhero world knocked Vikander out.

“I was amazed, I watched a battle scene onscreen with only women and realized that it was so far away from everything I have been fed my entire life,” Vikander says.

The visualization hit home, she says. “I’m a feminist, and aware, but I was like, ‘Wow,’ I hadn’t really even questioned that I only see men in these things. I felt thankful to them for bringing (us) this film.”

Nearly a year later, Vikander is returning the favor, stepping into the action boots of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider (in theaters Friday). Angelina Jolie previously strapped on the iconic video-game heroine’s combat-ready footwear in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the 2003 sequel Lara Croft: Tomb Raider — The Cradle of Life.

The news that the now 29-year-old Swede (who married actor Michael Fassbender last year) would take on the rebooted role was a surprise, mostly since Vikander is the toast of art-house film world — known as the beautiful and intelligent humanoid robot Ava in Ex Machina and the artist Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl.

As alerted a couple of weeks ago, Alicia is currently featured in Hunger Magazine to promote Tomb Raider! The magazine has now shared their full story on Alicia, as well as released three additional photos from her photoshoot. I love everything about this shoot, and these new additions might just be my favorite ones yet! I’ve added the new photos to our gallery, and you can read the article below.

Hunger – Alicia Vikander has a mantra. “When things are hard,” she begins, slowly, “I say, ‘Yeah, but it’s not tougher than ballet school.’” Alicia enrolled at the Royal Swedish Ballet School at nine, and danced with companies until she was 19, which amounts to a childhood spent in permanent discipline. “One thing you learn in a school like that, if it doesn’t break you, is that no one does [the work] for you.

It’s a rather worldly lesson to have internalised as a child, but as preliminary training for Hollywood, you’d hazard the lesson was invaluable. Today, the 29-year-old Oscar winner still has the physical mannerisms of a dancer: she sits, back straight on her chair, legs crossed, occasionally grasping her feet and rocking from side to side. Her first English-speaking role was only “six or seven years ago”, and she speaks slowly and carefully, though it doesn’t seem like the uncertainty of the non-native speaker, but instead a deep-rooted thoughtfulness.

For there is plenty for Alicia to reflect on. Next week, her latest film, Tomb Raider, will be released; she, of course, plays the video game riot grrrl Lara Croft in the new adaptation, directed by Norwegian director Roar Uthaug, and co-starring Dominic West and Kristin Scott Thomas. It is one of the last projects Alicia had committed to before she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2016, for her role as Gerda Wegerer in The Danish Girl, which means that she is now, for the first time in two years, picking new projects, working out who she wants to be next. She recently took four months off – the first break in five and a half years when she didn’t have something else in preparation – and travelled to Japan: “Number one on my list until I went – and I want to go back and see more.” She is reading, greedily. “I don’t want to say what,” she says, coy, granting only that she enjoyed Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens and Homo Deus. She is tentatively interested in producing. “I love filmmaking, so as an actor it’s been wonderful, but you come in at a later stage in the process. But to be there and develop an idea and move forward – that’s what I put a lot of time into thinking about right now.” Read More

As we alerted you a while back, Alicia is the cover girl for Hunger Magazine‘s 14th issue! It’s out today (March 8), and we finally have more photos from her gorgeous photoshoot. This is definitely one of my new favorites! She looks incredible. We’ll hopefully have digital scans of the issue up in our gallery soon, but make sure to also purchase your very own copy over here.

With an Academy Award under her belt, and perhaps the biggest movie of her career so far being released next week, Alicia Vikander has the world at her feet. Her turn as Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft, the most badass female protagonist in recent cinema, is one if this year’s most hyped performances, and there really was no better choice of cover star to front our Power Play issue of Hunger.

Shot by Rankin and styled in Louis Vuitton SS18 by Hunger’s fashion director Kim Howells, Alicia appears in a 16-page editorial and talks candidly about being an actress in Hollywood’s changing landscape, how she prepared for Tomb Raider and why sisterhood is the only way forward.
