Age & Early Bio

Alicia Maree Malone was born on 4 September 1981 in Canberra, Australia. As of December 2021, she is 40 years old.

Her father was a movie enthusiast, which inspired her to work in the industry. Moreover, she instilled in her love of movies early, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad in the video shop, selecting her $7 seven-day rental. 

Malone also started a Film Club at school and was elected president. After a while, the school principal urged her to stop talking about movies in class.


 Malone wrote her first book in 2017 called 'Backwards and in Heels: The Past, Present, And Future Of Women Working in Film.' The subsequent year, she published her second book titled 'The Female Gaze: Essential Women's Films.' 

Malone's books are about the struggles of women in the film industry and how to support them. As of 2021, she is working on a new book titled 'Girls on Film: The Complete History of the Women Who Broke Barriers and Redefined Roles,' set to release in 2022. 

She is currently not available on social media, and her last post on Instagram was in June 2020, where she wrote about writing a new book. "Apologies if I miss your post/story/DM/tag/live over the next few months... I'm taking a step back from social media to get stuck into writing my next book," Malone captioned it.

Marital Status 

Malone is currently single, and not much is known about her personal life. However, she mentioned the actor from Donnie Darko as her future husband, but many of their fans overlook it as mere professional flirting.
