Or whatever it is called the thing you feel when you are a girl and you really like a girl and you are not gay. You don’t even know the girl, because she is Alicia Vikander and if you don’t know who she is, then… Neah, I’m sure you know who she is.
Yes, I guess you can call me a groupie. But, actually, I feel like I could be bffs with her. Like Gigi and Kendall. Like Ben and Matt. Like Chip and Dale.
And hey, it’s Alice-ee-ah, not Ah-LEE-shah, because she is Swedish and this is how Swedish people roll. Their tongues, that is. Lol.
Alicia came into my living room playing the role of Queen Caroline Mathilde in Nikolaj Arcel’s historical drama, “A Royal Affair”, alongside Mads Mikkelsen. Beyuuutiful film to watch under the blanket in pyjamas and on red wine. You might be doing the same thing, maybe just change the wine into… Let’s say sushi. Or do them both. And see Alicia in Joe Right’s romantic drama “Anna Karenina”. You don’t get to see Alice-ee-ah that much here, but you do see a lot of Kee-ih-ra. Yum. Yes, yum.
Now you can see your friends and watch Alex Garland’s science fiction psychological thriller “Ex-Machina”, where Alicia plays the role of the the android with artificial intelligence, Ava. Hold tight to your friends and watch Guy Ritchie’s action film “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and prepare to fall in love with Vikander all over again. “A Royal Affair” was the first time. This will is the second, I promise you. Looks, brains, humour and talent.
Ritchie’s film made me want to have bangs again after trying to keep it long for two whole years. With or without Alicia, it was one of the best decisions of the late months, ’cause I still have fun with it. With the bangs. The bangs.
Don’t watch the trailers, please. Get surprised. It’s a movie. You’re not moving in with it. You just watch it. You can do it! And besides, I have only told you about the great movies that I saw and she starred in. “The testament of youth”, let’s say, didn’t quite make it to the list. So, there, you see? I like her (a lot!), but I still wouldn’t have you watch something just for her. You see, you see?
Go see the movies and dress like her in “The man from U.N.C.L.E.”. Jk. Or like the guys, guys. The point is that in Ritchie’s film was the first film where I saw the blink in her eyes while wearing the stuff that she wore. Oh, she enjoyed it and I googled it.
She is a style star and she was my favourite at this year’s Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards (she won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “The Danish Girl”, can not wait to see it!) and not only because I like her (a lot!), but because she shined. No muss, no fuss.
Jk. Like that.
So, there, how not to fall?
Should I call?
