Get ready to see a whole lot more of Alicia Vikander — especially during awards season! Not only is she ‘VOGUE’ magazine’s cover girl for their January issue but she also has two Golden Globe nominations — and we can’t wait to see her take the red carpet by storm! See what she had to say about starring in ‘The Danish Girl’ and check out her sexy, stunning shoot.
Alicia Vikander‘s career is sky-rocketing! The 27-year-old actress, who stars in the highly-anticipated film The Danish Girl, opened up to VOGUE magazine as she posed for the January issue — and she looks amazing in a slew of stylish designer looks.
Alicia’s career is totally skyrocketing! The star, shot by David Sims, totally has the whole Hollywood vibe down, as she smolders in front of the camera for the shoot. The former ballerina had six films in theaters in 2015, including Testament of Youth, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Ex Machina. In 2016, you can see her light up the big screen in Tulip Fever, the next installment in the Bourne series, and The Light Between Oceans, in which she stars alongside her real-life boyfriend, actor Michael Fassbender.
“To be quite honest, it’s nerve-racking, the way these films sort of piled up,” she told the mag. “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.”
She also opened up about the powerful message in The Danish Girl. “This was not a film of the ‘now’ when we started making it,” Alicia said, “and it’s frankly amazing to think of the cultural change that has taken place since we started. But I think it’s important to remember that the issues Lili encountered 100 years ago are still issues. You read the statistics about how trans people are physically and psychologically abused, how they are discriminated against at work. This is a civil rights movement.”
