According to movie magazine Empire Online, Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie recently spoke to Cinescape magazine about her role as Eidos Interactive's cyberbabe Lara Croft:

Angelina Jolie became so attached to certain aspects of playing action heroine Lara Croft that she snaffled some souvenirs from the film set of Tomb Raider. 'I'm having my guns sent,' Jolie tells this month's Cinescape magazine. 'They were just put in their case so I can have Lara's guns. I became really close to them and wore them every day so I want them here.'

Talking about the process of becoming the live action version of the computer character, Jolie admits she found playing an English aristocrat daunting. 'I wanted to really udnerstand someone being raised a certain way in England, their culture, the accent and also the class that she's raised in - the manners. She's Lady Lara Croft and I had very little practice in being a lady.
