Hollywood star Angelina Jolie delighted screaming fans as she arrived for the UK premiere of her new film, Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. Jolie is back as action heroine Lara Croft - the lycra-clad archaeologist and explorer who originated as a video game character. Dressed in a long black dress with a plunging neckline, Jolie, 28, embarked on a 25-minute walkabout where she signed autographs and posed for pictures. She was joined at the premiere in London's Leicester Square by the film's director Jan de Bont, and co-stars Ciaran Hinds and Noah Taylor.

Academy award winner Jolie was pleased to see many of her youngest fans dressed up as mini Lara Crofts. She said: "They are so cute and it's good to know if I step away there will be someone to take my place." Asked about the atmosphere outside the cinema, she added: "It's wonderful. I can't imagine coming to these things and not having people here to support us - it would be devastating."

Jolie now lives in the UK with her two-year-old son Maddox, who she adopted in Cambodia last year. She said: "I've started to drink tea and I love English mustard. I even did some work in Cambodia recently and had some brought out to me." Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life opens at screens across the UK on Friday.
