Angelina Jolie is a huge video game fan, having portrayed Lara Croft in several Tomb Raider movies.
In an interview Angelina Jolie claimed 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.
She added, “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 realize 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!” Angelina Jolie voicing Maleficent in Kingdom Hearts 3 would definitely bring a bit more spark to the game.
