You know her award-winning performances on the big screen, but there are a few nuggets you might not know about the famously private actress...

It’s safe to say that Alicia Vikander can take on any role given to her. From portraying a female android in Ex Machina to stepping in Angelina Jolie’s combat boots to play Lara Croft in the popular Tomb Raider franchise, the Oscar-winning Swedish actress keeps proving her chameleon-like qualities on the silver screen. And while we know the film star from her gripping cinematic performances, her life beyond the film sets, red carpets and Louis Vuitton campaigns remains enigmatic.


Having no social media and granting only a few interviews (one of which was for Vogue Scandinavia’s June/July issue), Vikander prefers to keep parts of her life private, understandably. However, the actress has shared some details over the years, and below, Vogue Scandinavia has picked the ones you may not have been aware of.
