She launched an eyewear brand in high school

In an October 2020 episode of The A24 Podcast, Alexa explained that when she was in high school, she went to downtown Los Angeles and purchased a box of wholesale sunglasses and decorated them with jewels and other embellishments. After she landed a retail order through a store her friend worked at, she spent three days handcrafting each pair. “[The store owner] sold them at his boutique in Japan for a lot of money, and they just got really popular,” Alexa explained.

She accidentally broke Sydney Sweeney’s toe during filming

Alexa’s Euphoria costar Sydney Sweeney revealed in an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden that her toe was stepped on and “exploded” during the final day of filming.

Alexa told Vogue France that when the first season of Euphoria premiered in June 2019, she traveled to Tulum, Mexico, in an attempt to have a phone-free and television-free vacation. “I was off my phone for the most part,” she said. “Until I started to watch the live reactions. We were trending number three worldwide and number one in the U.S. It was too much not to look!”
