Noomi Rapace Covers 'New York Times Magazine'

Noomi Rapace graces the cover of New York Times Magazine‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Swedish actress and Prometheus star had to share:

On coming to Hollywood: “I thought L.A. was more about celebrities and red carpets and glossy big lips and big tits. I said to [my manager] Shelley when we met: ‘I don’t want to go to Hollywood. That’s not for me. I want to do real movies.’ And then she said, ‘But who do you actually like?’ I started to mention people, and she said, ‘Those people actually live in L.A.’”

On fame: “I’m terrified of being too famous. What I’m really afraid of is that the audiences will go into the theater and not be able to forget that it’s me, that fame will stand in the way of my acting. I want to keep being able to change into different shapes and different personalities.”

    “i’m terrified of being famous” that’s literally THE best fear ever

  • Jon Bale


    This is the biggest cast call of all time. For years some of you have been waiting for this moment, well is arrived! Are you ready… hold on to your seats, because you are about to get the details! The Invitation, the biggest role you’ll ever play to date.

    What’s the role?

    You’re a person that has done a lot of wrong things in their life, some knowingly others unknowingly, but all needs forgiveness. 2000 years prior to this, someone decided to do something about it. It wasn’t just anyone; it was the son of God, Jesus. God loved you so much that He sent his only begotten son to die in your place, a sinless man. In him doing so, he broke the chains of bondage that you were trapped in – some didn’t even know they were, because they’d just become a normal part of society in a fallen world. But by Jesus dying on the cross, he broke that bondage for you, so now you can have salvation, eternal life and a direct relationship with God.

    Now the next part of this role is how you respond to this free gift. Do you except it? It doesn’t matter what you have done, your sins will be forgiving, whether it’s lying, stealing, murder it doesn’t matter they are all classed as bad with our father in heaven, God. But the only thing that can save you is Jesus; invite him into your life: “Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me turn away from sin. I believe that Your Son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to help me obey you, and to do your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.” Congratulations! Welcome to the family of God!

    What next after getting saved, get in a good bible based church, make God first place, The alternative to not getting saved, which is by choice, as we all have free-will, is eternal separation from God, because if you’re not with him, you’re against him and we all know where that horrid place is. Peace, love and celebration of this wonderful news in your next big role, getting saved. Do you except?

    “Look at me I´m so modest and down to earth and totally the opposite of Hollywood and glamour. Now you will all love me!”

  • irene

    I can’t believe she has haters. She’s smart, sensible, honest, down to earth and TALENTED. She’s dedicated and loves her job; what more could you ask an actress for?

  • Reality Check

    She is the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

  • laly

    @Reality Check: Yep the only Lisbeth Salander

  • may
  • John

    I actually really like her performance. People who hate her most of them are the teens celebrities fans.

  • Josh

    She’s so full of herself.

  • Jasmine

    …after reading those little quotes from this interview, all I have is one question: Who the hell is this woman?

  • kajsa kavat

    Oh my ….
    Well if that ever should become a problem she can always
    come back to Sweden, because over here nobody really cares
    about her!

  • Yep

    awesome photo!

  • Kurt Gamov

    @Jon Bale: Don’t misuse some harmless entertainment/gossip site for religious statements.

  • Kurt Gamov

    @kajsa kavat: I wonder what “over here” means. If that is the U.S., then this comment is not appropriate: If you get on the cover of TNYTM, then some people do care about you.

  • CMoo

    You have nothing to worry about!! No one will see Prometheus, and even if we did, no one will remember you.

  • ruth

    i love the cover

  • Trip

    Some people have to understand that when Noomi said she’s terrified of being “too famous,” she really meant that she’s afraid of being “over exposed” as an actor. Many serious actors have this same fear.

    It’s not always easy to choose your words wisely during an in-person interview, especially when English is not your first language.

    She is a fake: Saying she don’t want to be famous.

    She also says she is against plastic surgery.

    Noomi Rapace has a fake nose and runs around at premiers in designer clothes to get famous.
