Transcript for Alicia Vikander opens up about 'Tomb Raider'
You guys. Now a great guest to bring to the table Oscar winning actress stars in the new "Tomb raider," please welcome Alicia vikander. ??? Hey. Here you go. Welcome. Thank you. Yeah, the European version is the double. Welcome back. Thank you. So as we mentioned you won an Oscar for "The Danish girl." I just read you actually don't have your own Oscar. Yes, it's been two years now of me saying that. Prosecutor it seems like people believe I'm bull -- I've been renovating my house and I'll soon take it home. It's my friend's daughter who has it in her room. She's keeping good care of it. I met her mom and she better send me another photo to make sure he's fine. Speaking of house you just got married. Congratulations. Thank you. We hear your husband is setting up home in Lisbon so will Oscar go to Lisbon. Yeah. What's home in Lisbon like and it why there. It's the most beautiful city and country. Great weather for someone who is Irish and Swedish. Very happy it's not raining. And, yeah, no, it's a great place where you can be close to nature. It's a city by the water if. It's a little different than where you're from but this movie is a departure from what we're used to seeing you in. Lara croft, "Tomb raider," love this movie. How is it for you? Did you always want to be an action star. To be honest I grew up in Sweden and I had -- my mom was an actress and probably introduced me to a lot ofeuropean art house cinemas and I've always been a kid and I still do, run to the cinema to see big adventure films and action movies and I was -- I mean, I was a huge fan of the Indiana Jones movies and the mummy series growing up. Did you ever think it would be you. Of course, not. No. I mean, like I said, I was brought up in a small country so probably I didn't think it was possible to work in English language growing up so it was another universe all the Hollywood films. Let's see you in action. I think we have a clip here. Aaagh. You've been working out to get in that role. Yeah, you know, now I've testimony doing press and looking at these clips and like images, oh, my god, I need to get back to the gym. It's all gone now. Did you get addicted to it. I mean it's very empowering because I kind of looked at a lot of female athletes and stunt women that I met over the yeabs in the film industry and I was like, well, if it's going to be plausible that Lara can do this because we did quite -- maybe a bit more naturalistic take then I want to look like these women who I so much looked up to. You're the embodiment of a cultural icon because now you have your own Barbie doll. Is that a little surreal? It is very surreal. I mean, it's -- but it's pretty cool. I didn't know but Barbie apparent apparentlile have a few cool female action or fictional characters over the years so I feel, you know, it's a great honor. This -- probably even further away of what I thought would be possible when I was a kid.
