Alicia Vikander has said veteran star Julianne Moore once came out in her defense after a powerful Hollywood figure made a crude joke about her. The “Tomb Raider” star, who appears on the latest cover of Vogue, said the incident happened on the sets of 2014 film “Seventh Son”, and Moore not only reprimanded the person but also threatened to walk out of the film.

“I was really embarrassed, and I would have just laughed it off,” Vikander said. “But Julianne turned to him and said, ‘If you ever do that again, I’m walking out of here and I’m not coming back.’ She was just, like, ‘Don’t you f**king say that again.’ It showed me that she had the power. And that meant so much to me,” Vikander added.

Vikander was one of the prominent Hollywood personalities who turned up at the Golden Globes red carpet donning black in support of the Time’s Up campaign that seeks to promote equality and safety in the workplace and fights against sexual misconduct. “It was such a community that came together. I got on the phone with Natalie (Portman), whom I’d never met, and Reese (Witherspoon). Suddenly I felt like I made a lot of new friends. One thing that really got to me in their initial email was the fact that ‘ because women are not as well represented in all industries ‘ we often have to fight for jobs. The competition is so tough that instead of getting to know each other and working together, we learned at an early age to compete for that single spot. So then to get on the carpet yesterday and feel like I had actually made friends with the other actresses and people I admire, it was really cool,” Vikander said.

As we all eagerly await the release of the trailer of ‘Tomb Raider’ starring Alicia Vikander, there is an interesting thing that caught the Internet’s attention and how. On one hand, where the makers were basking in the popularity the movie’s poster was enjoying, Twitter on the other hand was engaged in proving the directors that they can do a better job when it comes to Photoshop. The official Twitter handle of ‘Tomb Raider’ recently released the poster where actress Alicia Vikander is slaying it as Lara Croft. But, there is a tiny mistake that they couldn’t figure out, but people were quick to catch on. Check out this poster.

Now if you look closely, Alicia’s neck looks really weird and it’s evident that the photo was retouched to make her neck appear longer. Clearly, fans were miffed and laughing at the same time over this photoshopped image and came up with their bizarre and f**ked up variations for the poster.

Someone even gave an explanation as to why her neck appears longer and it kind of does make sense.

Personal trainer: “Rise and shine, it’s neck day!”
Alicia Vikander: “AGAIN?!”
Personal trainer: “No neck pain, no neck gain, girl.”

They need to try and get more original with how to pose a female character in a poster… pic.twitter.com/INCg6kCPYF

The only way Vikander’s neck makes sense in this poster is if the movie was originally TOMB RAPTOR. pic.twitter.com/VfDRk5mFIU

While we were still recuperating from these hilarious reactions to the poster, Tomb Raider had already dropped a major bomb on us in the form of this 15-second teaser that hints at how killer this movie is going to be.

The trailer is yet to be released, but if the teaser and the poster has already created so much buzz, we can only imagine how big an impact the trailer will have on us. The movie is slated for a March 2018 release.
