ANGELINA JOLIE BRANDS LARA ROLE MODEL

Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie is proud of playing high-flying action hero Lara Croft on screen and believes the character is a role model grounded in reality. Jolie reprises the role in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life opening in the United States on Friday, playing a cultured, yet spectacularly athletic and attractive British adventurer.
