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.
