With her new movie "Prometheus" set to hit theaters on June 8th, Noomi Rapace garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the July 2012 issue of The New York Times magazine.

The 32-year-old Swedish actress looked enchanting for the Olaf Blecker shot spread while dishing about stardom and moving to Tinseltown.

Highlights from Miss Rapace's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to The New York Times!

On making the move to Tinseltown:
“I thought L.A. was more about celebrities and red carpets and glossy big lips and big t*ts. I said to [my manager] Shelley when we met: ‘I don’t want to go to Hollywood. That’s not for me. I want to do real movies.’ And then she said, ‘But who do you actually like?’ I started to mention people, and she said, ‘Those people actually live in L.A.’”

On stardom:
“I’m terrified of being too famous. What I’m really afraid of is that the audiences will go into the theater and not be able to forget that it’s me, that fame will stand in the way of my acting. I want to keep being able to change into different shapes and different personalities.”
