Alicia Vikander wanted to become a florist

SWEDISH star Alicia Vikander has revealed she dreamed of being a florist as a child.

The Academy Award-winning actress – who stars as Lara Croft in the new ‘Tomb Raider’ movie – has admitted to harbouring a number of professional ambitions during her youth, saying that at one stage she wanted to sell flowers for a living.

Asked what she wanted to do as a child, Alicia shared, “I wanted to be everything, from a florist to a dancer and an actress. I wanted to be a singer or a dancer, and it was not until… it was actually a clip that was found of me on Swedish television not long ago that I don’t have any memory of. But apparently in this interview at seven years old, I said that I wanted to be an actress. I actually had no clue I wanted to do that.”

The Swedish actress was a huge fan of adventure movies, such as ‘The Mummy’ and the ‘Indiana Jones’ franchise, during her younger years.

And Alicia, 29 – who is married to fellow Hollywood star Michael Fassbender – has admitted that Bruce Willis was her “first crush”.

Quizzed about her obsession with movies from the 1980s and 1990s, Alicia told CNET.com, “Bruce Willis was my first crush. I was like 11 [laughs]. I love that kind of film.

“And adventure films – ‘Indiana Jones’. I was a big fan of ‘The Mummy’ series in my early teens as well.” – BANG!
