Alicia Vikander praises Angelina Jolie

Alicia Vikander wants to meet Angelina Jolie.

The 27-year-old actress is taking over the role of Lara Croft in the 'Tomb Raider' series from Angelina, 41, and Alicia is a huge fan of the star.

She told E! News: "That is a woman I would love to meet. She made an icon of that character, of course. She's quite an incredible woman. I would love to meet her."

However, she won't be asking Angelina for any advice.

She said: "What we're doing is something quite different since they rebooted the game in 2013. It's a whole new take. We're doing a film of that game."

Alicia previously revealed she cannot wait to get started on the movie, which will tell the origin story of the adventurous archaeologist.

She said: "I mean, for me, I'm so excited to do it. She was such an icon, I played the game when I was a kid, but they rebooted the game a few years ago so it is now becoming more of an origins story. So it's quite different."

Roar Uthaug will direct the movie with Graham King as producer for the MGM and Warner Bros. co-production.

Alicia will seemingly not have any problem with the physical aspects of the role as she did many of her own stunts in new movie 'Jason Bourne' - in which she plays Agent Heather Lee opposite Matt Damon.

She revealed: "I had to do the stunts that I was involved in (for 'Jason Bourne'). Matt, in this film, said it's a bit like dancing you, you know? For the fighting sequences it's like learning choreography."
