winning Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie talks
to Sky News on her role as Core Designs intrepid
British aristocrat Lara Croft ahead of the U.S.
premier 10 days away:
Jolie has revealed she didn't need any surgical
intervention to ensure she could play Lara Croft
in the forthcoming Tomb Raider. Speaking to Sky
News, Angelina said: "I am a 36C, in the movie
I am 36D, in the game she is a double D. We still
made it Lara Croft but we didn't go to any extremes."
Angelina added: "For me it was simply one size.
It was like having a padded bra but I am not flat-chested
anyway." Indeed virtually everything moviegoers
see on screen will be the actress, who won a best
supporting actress Oscar for her role in Girl,
26 today, told how she did all her own stunts
for the blockbuster movie, which was partly filmed
on location in Cambodia. The star claimed she
had no choice, if she wanted to win over the millions
of fans who have fallen for Lara Croft in the
hugely successful Tomb Raider computer games.
She said: "You're expecting that they are going
to see you as this character they love. You'd
better earn that and you should work your butt
off and be her. "If you fake it you shouldn't
be allowed to carry the name." Tomb Raider hits
the US on June 15, and will reach these shores
later in the summer.
