Now this is a great rags-to-riches story. Hollywood Actress Alicia Vikander has claimed that during her struggling days she used to work at a flower shop. The 27-year-old Oscar-nominated actress said it was a tough time as she was uncertain about her destiny like any other struggling actor, reports People magazine.

“I worked at a flower shop and at a Levi’s (store) with my friends,” Vikander said. The Danish Girl star credits her friends for being around and help her hold on to the ambition of making it big in Hollywood.

“It helped being able to be creative with my friends. We kind of wrote together and did some short films, and that kind of kept my steam going,” she said. Vikander got her first role in a feature film, Pure.
