[ July 4th 2001 ]
Lara Croft model Nell McAndrew ignored a reported
embargo from last nights UK Tomb Raider premiere
by attending Leicester Sq. Odeon in a £2000 purple
rubber dress accompanied by Big Brother star Bubble.
this week, Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie reportedly
banned all former Lara Croft models from last
nights premiere for fear of being upstaged, but
the 4,000 strong turn-out last night were solely
captivated with Jolie, who arrived with husband
Billy Bob Thornton in black leather trousers and
a black vest top. Jolie toured for almost 20 minutes
before disappearing into the theatre with father
Jon Voight and brother James closely following
suit. Speaking to the BBC, she spoke of her fears
of portraying Core Designs cyber-babe heroine
Lara Croft after the movie was coolly received
by critics in the U.S. "I'm hoping it's going
to be empowering for everyone."
Croft: Tomb Raider movie opens Friday 6th June
across the U.K.
