Okay, so not her next Oscar win, but it pays the mortgage…
Alicia Vikander has signed on to star in Tomb Raider for MGM, Warner Bros. and GK Films,The Hollywood Reporter reports. And it’s not the Angelina Jolie tomb raider this time. The new film will tell the story of a young and untested Croft fighting to survive her first adventure…so like an updated prequel.
Vikander, who won an Oscar for her turn in The Danish Girl, is hoping to become just as bankable as Jolie but honestly do people really care about these types of franchises much anymore? Or, Tomb Raider? I know The Hunger Games was huge for Jennifer Lawrence, but Shailene Woodley didn’t have the same luck with the Divergent series. I feel like nobody cares about Tomb Raider anymore. Or hey, maybe it’s just me?
Last year was a turning point for Vikander, who won an Oscar for her performance in The Danish Girl while also starring in Ex Machina, Burnt and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. This year she continues working like a BOSS, and will be seen in the drama The Light Between Oceans as well as the Matt Damon action pic Jason Bourne.
So hey, if Tomb Raider fails, she has other things going on. Are you excited to see Alicia as Lara Croft?
On an episode of Fashion Police on Monday, the guest cohostcouldn’t hide his disdain for this Oscar winner’s dress.
“I loathed this look,” said the Project Runway mentor, 62, disagreeing with stylist Brad Goreski, who had gushed about the actress’ appearance. “I thought it was the amateur hour. From my many years of teaching, this to me looked like a student project.”
Who is Tim throwing shade at?! Find out, after the jump!
I’m not sure what else Stacey Dash had to say after her weird Oscars response blog post, but apparently she’s milking her new 15 minutes with all the fervor and shamelessness of a Fox News Anchor.
The 49 year old (YEAH, I KNOW, genes are the one thing she has going for her) thought it would be a good idea to milk her Oscars moment by doing her own version of Mean Tweets, making light of the whole awkward moment and people hating her, but it uh, doesn’t really come off as funny. It’s more…sad.
Check out the video below and let us know how much it FAILS.
Liberty Ross wore her wedding dress to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday, which is a great way to A. get in the news (like so) and B. get some value out of a very expensive couture piece.
Needless to say, Ross looked stunning as she hit the red carpet, which was probably because she’s worn the thing before- just two weeks ago, in fact, when she wed her new hubby Jimmy Iovine on Valentine’s Day.
While Liberty styled her hair down on her big day, Ross had a more sophisticated look and up do on Sunday. The pearl earrings and black clutch helped in diversifying the look.
I think it’s a gorgeous dress, anywhere you wear it!
