Jolie - who performed most of her own stunts in
the original Tomb Raider movie claiming she had
no choice if she wanted to win over the millions
of fans who have fallen for Lara Croft - insists
on continuing the fashion in Par's sequel The
Cradle Of Life. Several sequences require Jolie
to ride "real bulls, with horns and everything!"
Jolie told reporters recently. "They're being
trained up for the film. What you do, apparently,
is to get the male bulls to chase after a female.
So I'm going to be on some excited bulls looking
for their girlfriends.
no fear when it comes to stunts, which is probably
very stupid. I do argue about what I think Lara
would do in certain situations and sometimes there's
a difference of opinion." Jolie continued, referring
to a recent bust-up with director Jan de Bont.
However, the former Oscar-winner said this time
round she would be "slightly more careful" with
her action scenes. "I check safety things a little
bit more than I used to, now that Maddox is here."
touring Cambodia last year as ambassador for the
United Nations High Commission for Refuges, Jolie
and former husband Billy Bob Thornton adopted
a baby boy called Maddox. When quizzed on her
new role as mother, Jolie said: "It's wonderful.
It's just the most amazing thing in the world.
He's changed my life. He's really centered me.
Anytime I think anything else is important, and
I just see his smile ... he's made me be the best
person I could possibly be."
