Alicia Vikander Used to Be Afraid of Doing Interviews

Alicia Vikander Used to Be Afraid of Doing Interviews

Alicia Vikander gets her hair wet for this gorgeous Fall 2015 cover of Net-a-Porter.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Ex Machina actress had to share with the mag:

On being recognized publicly: “I was recognized in the street for the first time yesterday. It was very strange. I guess I’ve been lucky that I’ve been quite incognito.”

On overcoming her fear of interviews: “Two years ago I was terrified of doing interviews. I am a foreign actress working in another language. But I have been able to mature in the industry, working with actors and directors who have made me feel secure in myself, without being in the public eye.”

    Um, that’s Daria Werbowy on the cover

  • Emma

    LMAO!

  • Burt

    The best part of her interview is this ” I suffer from a costant anxiety that what’s happening to me isn’t going to last forever.” LOL and she isn’t even famous! A real obsession

  • Katherine

    In the interview she said that she was recognized when she was with Fassbender so people recognized him. LOL

  • megan

    Daria Werbowy is on the cover? hahahahahahahahahah

  • Zaia

    Here come the haters and the trolls. Get a life you morons. She’s a great and talented actress and only jealous idiots like you could spend hours tracking her and bashing her. Get lost you mean nothing in this world lol

    Clearly, Just Jared has gone down hill. Their posts are full of typos and errors. For instance, they didn’t know when Cara Delevigne was wearing a wig and, they obviously don’t know who Alicia is (or know how to read a cover)

    Wow, does Jared even try to edit himself? That’s definitely not Vikander on the cover, and one has to wonder how he posted that picture of a tall, BLUE-EYED woman, along with the actual Vikander who is petite and brown-eyed.

    Oh, she’s a TOTAL entitled try-hard. Horrible attitude.

    I don’t get the trolls. it’s like they come out of the wood work to hate on women, especially women who are not bubbly blondes. i feel like some of it stems from the fact that she’s dating Fassbender and that cesspool that is ONTD since they’ve been hating on her for a while.

    Exactly. He’s clearly not running his own blog. It’s been obvious for a long time.

  • Cara

    She covered The Edit, and I think this is the wrong mag cover? Because that is definitely Daria W. Nice quotes, but I would like to see the actual pictures!

  • Cara

    It’s gotten really snarky lately too, besides the numerous mistakes. I used to love Jared because he reported celebrity news in a more straightforward manner without a lot of spin, unlike snarky websites or websites that were overly gushy. Not so much anymore.

  • Karen

    I don’t see a quote of her saying that in the net a porter interview or is it in a different one?

  • Ause Ekel

    Wrong woman on the cover, that’s not Weinstein girl JJ!

  • Nives

    are you Alicia? Stay pressed

  • Javis

    Also The New York Times is a troll? Thinking man’s Blake Lively they named Vikander on her article LMAO

  • Bianca

    Zaia you’re a desperate stan. In your Disquis history you posted only in article about her. Get a life LOL
    She’s a nobody and people and media (New York Times, Lainey etc..) already hate her

  • Quentin

    “Get lost you mean nothing in this world lol” Like you LMAO Pressed, it’s so hard when people don’t like your idol LOL

  • luisa contini

    I don’t know why there is so much hate for her. If you’ve seen any of her Swedish films you can see she is very talented. It’s not like she’s only had one film and there is all this hype for no reason. And I don’t know why Lainey and the New York times don’t like her. She seems guarded in her interviews but that was when she was first becoming known in the US. She seems really nice in all her chat show interviews. I think it’s really sad that so many women are hating on her just because she is dating Fassbender. I don’t think he is as dreamy or nice in person as everyone imagines.
