Hunger Magazine: Alicia Vikander talks Tomb Raider and Time’s Up

Written by Sara on March 13 2018

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.” continue reading

Alicia for Hunger Magazine – Photoshoot

Written by Sara on March 08 2018

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.
