As mentioned in our yesterday post, Alicia is gracing the April 2018 Cover of Marie Claire! We added a few high quality photos from the photoshoot by Thomas Whiteside to our Gallery, we’ll add digital scans as soon as possible in the meantime check out the photos! She looks beautiful but we were so excited to see them yesterday and now we’re disappointed cause all of the photos are black & white and they wasted the beautiful retro outfits, Alicia’s glowy skin tone, the cool make-up and the awesome textures. A lot of times when photographers go b/w it’s because they’re out of ideas or want to seem edgy (but end up looking uninspired) or when they simply didn’t produce good photography so we don’t get it! Hopefully they’re colored in the spread. Here, a few highlights from her April cover interview, on newsstands March 27:

On conveying Lara Croft’s strength in Tomb Raider:

We wanted to base most of the action in reality. She’s a girl my size having to become a survivor and overcome a lot of obstacles, and I wanted it to be believable that she could do it. All the action scenes when I had to fight with a man bigger than me—we had to figure out how I could actually kick his ass. I wanted to show young girls that it’s cool to be a girl who’s really strong and that watching her, you feel like OK, she might be able to climb that wall. She might be able to lift her own weight.  Continue reading.

Alicia’s appearance on the Brazilian talk show The Noite com Danilo Gentili will air tonight on SBT in Brazil. We added 4 promotional photos & a portrait from her visit, we’ll also add screencaptures and link the interview as soon as it will be released online!

Tuesday, March 13, Danilo Gentili will talk to the international actress Alicia Vikander, who is playing the new Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider “. She will reveal it took three to four months to gain the muscles only three weeks to lose them: “I did climbing, cycling, various trainings.” And she also talks about her diet while trianing: “It’s a pot of rice five times a day. You only eat good carbohydrates, not bad ones. ” Oscar Winnrer for Best Supporting Actress in 2016 for “Danish Girl”, she says she does not have Oscar with her: “I don’t have Oscar with me, I haven’t seen him since the ceremony. My friend’s daughter is taking care of my Oscar. “

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 when she was 9 years old, 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 for you.”

It’s a rather worldly lesson to have internalized 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.

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. 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.

“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, 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.”
