Angelina Jolie: 'I liked killing Lara Croft in Tomb Raider video game'

By
Angelina Jolie has revealed that she used to enjoy killing Lara Croft when playing the Tomb Raider video game.

The actress, who played the iconic character in 2001's Tomb Raider movie and its sequel Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, said she liked the way Croft sounded when she died in the game.

Jolie told Total Film that she initially disliked the virtual character, but changed her mind when she realised Lara Croft could be a good role model.

"I only eventually [played the role] because it's about a very strong woman," she said. "It was exposing, but in a way where I thought, 'I really like what she represents as a woman', and so if I'm exposed in that way it's okay."

She added: "When I agreed to play her, I didn't realise how much of an icon she was. There are magazines on where she went to school, and the music she liked... it's very bizarre!"

The latest Tomb Raider movie to be made is from Bollywood. Jolie's directional debut In the Land of Blood and Honey will be released later in the year.
