Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie has told British tabloid newspaper News of the World one of the reasons she accepted the role of Lara Croft in Paramount Pictures Tomb Raider motion picture was the opportunity of working with her father, Jon Voight.

"It took dad and I a long time to sort things out, but the last few years brought us so close that it's like rediscovering this wonderful father." Jolie added: "What an absolute gift it was to work with him on something this special. The fact that he was playing my father in the film was a godsend. I've learnt so much from him about life and now I've learnt even more about acting."
