1602. Tomb Raider Chronicles - ANGELINA JOLIE PROCLAIMS SEXIER LARA
Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has told reporters her character Lara Croft will be much sexier in Par's Tomb Raider sequel The Cradle Of Life. I think we see more sides to her. This feels more like a real film than the last one - it's a little less silly and Lara's more of a woman. The funny thing is, I realised I was almost doing too much training the last time. And I was on too many protein powder things - it made me curvier. This time I just ate normal food and lots of it: stuff like beans and eggs on toast. Then I trained as much as possible. This time Lara's leaner and stronger, sexier and sharper.
