Alicia Vikander’s Friends “Kidnapped” Her for Her Bachelorette Party

Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender kept their wedding plans as secretive as possible, so when planning Vikander’s bachelorette party, her friends made sure to do the same. Though, the Oscar winner shared in her cover interview for the April 2018 issue of Marie Claire, that her pals’ methods of surprising her with the party plans were a little unorthodox.

“I was there [in Paris] for the Louis Vuitton show and suddenly got a text that says, ‘Go out. We need you right now,'” Vikander said, presumably referring to the brand’s Spring/Summer 2018 show in early October 2017. “They kidnapped me for 24 hours!” While getting kidnapped in Paris sounds like a situation only Liam Neeson could free you from, Vikander’s friends released her willingly after a fun-filled day and night. Just a few weeks later, Vikander tied the knot with Fassbender, whom she met on the set of 2016’s The Light Between Oceans. Their extremely private ceremony took place in Ibiza in mid-October; photographers spotted the duo, surrounded by friends and family on a yacht, suddenly wearing shiny new rings on their left hands.

Of married life with Fassbender, Vikander told Marie Claire, “I’m a big romantic, and I always have been.” The 29-year-old expanded further in her March 2018 cover interview with Vogue. “I feel I’m more happy and content than I’ve ever been,” she said, adding that she’d be more than happy to work with her husband again in the future. “I think he’s one of the absolute best actors I’ve worked with. Of course, he’d done more films than me, but immediately when we started to work together, he was so open to wanting me to chip in new ideas and thoughts,” she said. “He would be like, ‘I’m stuck; what should I do?’ and I would say, ‘You’re asking me?’ That was such a sweet thing.”
